PowerPC-only? REALLY?

This will not run on current versions of the Mac OS from now on. Lion does not include Rosetta.

PowerPC is dead for personal computing, guys. Time to move on; it's been six years or so.

Thanks for the source. I can compile this, but most people do not know how to compile applications.

I take it back; you CAN'T compile the source, because the Xcode project is either corrupt or in so ancient a format that Xcode 4 can't read it. In fact, the first attempt crashed, and subsequent attempts simply say it's an incompatible project version.

It appears that this program NO LONGER WORKS with the latest version of iTunes 9.x.
RadioRecorder will rip the stream but it fails to add the song to iTunes. And when it fails at adding the song to iTunes, the song disappears from the Music folder.

It looks like it is no longer being developed. Pity.

You can't even run it anymore, because it's PowerPC-only, and Mac OS no longer includes an emulator.

The Xcode project is also corrupt or too ancient to load.

Great program. The interface is not intuitive and real ugly, but RadioRecorder is a very simple background-working app and imports the tracks directly to iTunes.

Another reason - we have an internet radio station, and it allows us to archive everything for later re-runs, for those not able to catch a show. Also I have a friend with tourettes that swears by it :-)

This is a wonderful program, I used it and LOVED it for a while without any problem. However, recently it does not put the songs in to my choice of folder, it just puts everything into the library and marks the date as the name of the songs. Please help me what to do, I would love to use it again!
Does it have to do something with my recent update to tiger?

Great thing, even though the station switching is a bit difficult. Way not make the station list a sidepanel (like folder in Mail.app etc.)?

Anyway, we need a new release, the main file version 1.08 is still named 1.07, thus letting MacUpdate Desktop believe an old version is install.

Good product, but can't record more than 60 minutes of radio. After that I get a "Connection closed by the station".

You can set up how many hours Radio Recorder should record - are you sure you modified the default settings of just one hour?

If so, and if Radio Recorder already tells you the station closed the connection, the fault lies with the station. Though I agree that Radio Recorder sometimes doesn't resume correctly even if you have "Reconnect on failure" checked (especially if the error seems to be some iTunes script error while adding to the playlist).

Well I got confused at first with the interface.... 'now' actually means 'record now'...... hmm. It was also not clear from the help file that one can't listen to music through RadioRecorder at all. However the only real problem I found is that one can't freely select the folder where the recordings are stored, so whatever partition the user's music folder happens to be on will also end up storing all RadioRecorder's MP3 files.
Niggles aside, the recordings themselves are excellent - usually, due to my pre-historic internet connection, any player I have used so far stalls after a while. Not so RadioRecorder. I'm impressed!
And: Thanks for freeware :)))

This is intuitive and easy to use except for one thing---song ends tend to be lopped off 5-8 seconds early. There's no preference to set, as in Streamripper, for adjusting the start/stop of songs, so the only workaround is to drag the tracks out of iTunes into Quicktime Pro, where they can be edited as needed. This is pretty time consuming. Any chance that the developer can tweak his code a little more and make time adjustments possible?

The chopped starts/stops all depend on which stream you're recording. RadioWazee, for instance, chops 5+ seconds off and puts them on the next track, but SKY times everything perfectly. So, it's not this application that's responsible for the problems... but it would still be nice to have a preference for sliding the start/stop time as needed, depending on the stream being recorded.
