Why have I never heard of this app before? I'm almost embarrassed I missed it!

WOW! Old School simplicity, wonderful functionality. Just amazing.

I had a flash based police scanner feed that I was listening to with a web more...

Unable to open tgz file, which is only 4k - shame, I was looking forward to checking this out. Dev needs to post a dmg installer. Not interested in jumping through hoops just to try an app.

Current version starts randomly when paused! This is very bad. I was just sitting here and suddenly it starts randomly playing. I'm sure my neighbour is not going to appreciate this if it goes off in the middle of the night.

FStream is one of the most excellent apps in its realm! I was using it for a long time with great pleasure. Several days ago I've had a computer crash. My FStream app was lost. Well, here is the problem. My laptop is 32bit and for next year or so I wouldn't have chance to change it to 64bit. That's why I need FStream for 32bit, for Snow Leopard 10.6.8 to be precise. Is there anyone who could assist!? Thank you.

Just tell me when you get it so that I can erase it. :-)

Actually solved the problem by NOT using "unarchiver." I tried another app.; "stuffit expander" and it worked.
I then downloaded the newest version of "unarchiver" and that now works as well.
Thanks for your help, Jcraig, it sent me in the right direction...

After all these years, still an awesome little streamer app for both Mac and for iPhone. It would be cool to be able to sync favorites between devices (iCloud?), otherwise it does what it's supposed to do and does it well. One of my favorite apps and a 'first install' on any new machine. Thanks for your continued hard work and support of FStream.... Joel

I am not able to update.
OS 10.9.2
I can download the .tgz file and it "extracts," but I can't find any application... or anything else besides the .tgz file on my desktop.
Can anyone help?

Jb4, if you're simply updating, do so from the menu bar (FStream>>>Check For Updates). Not sure why you're having the problem that you are. Maybe try using The Unarchiver (highly recommended) rather than Apple's built-in unzipper to open the tgz file to see if you have better success.

"Jb4, if you're simply updating, do so from the menu bar "{

Tried that, message tells me that the installed v.1.4.8 is the latest version

"try using The Unarchiver (highly recommended)"

"Unarchiver" is my default app. When I open with it, the icon on the dock activates and shows a little "1" as it does it's unarchiving, but even though it's set to to save the file to the desktop, there is never any file. I've done it over 10 times now.

Dear SourceMac, first of all many thanks for nice application. I am using it first day but already impressed. My goal is to install on my home unattended server (MAC-MINI server, model late 2012 with OS X 10.9.1)transmitter from Internet radio to home audio network built on ABB product “Audio World”. Transmitter should work 24x7 without regular access to MAC-MINI. For any changes on MAC-MINI I can connect to it through SSH and VNC clients. I started tests with FStream and have two questions from the beginning.
1. I have two additional USB Audio cards on server to create more than one audio transmission from server (my family members love different genres :-). Is it possible to make a choice of audio output in application or system default is the only target audio output?
2. Is it possible to start two instances of FStream with different audio output for purpose described above?
Thank you in advance for your answer.

Season Greetings for all!

Hi Ikar. Sorry but no : FStream can only use the main Audio Output.

I take note of your need, but it's the first time than this one is expressed, and doesn't seem to be trial to do, so I'm not sure that this possibility will be included in a near future. Pearhaps that Airfoil can do the trick for now ?

Hi SourceMac. Thank you for answer and advice. I have tested already a number of applications. I will try Airfoil in the first opportunity also. Presently I am using FStream on the main Audio Output and two other applications - SonicWeb and VOX (both have Audio Output switch implemented) on additional sound cards. My congratulations to you! FStream looks like as absolutely fault tolerant application. It works already without my attention more than 150 hours. New Year is not a simple time for Internet traffic. Radio station connection is not stable and must be restored many times during that period. Both other applications stop a normal Radio transmission few times during same time period and I restarted application itself or restarted playing task manually. It's the reason why I am bothering you with my questions :-). Ideal scheme for me will be 3 instances of FStream with 3 Radio Channels transmitted 24x7x365. Please understand me - it's only a dreams, I will not bother you more and will only waiting for extensions if you will do it in future. Many thanks once more for brilliant application!
