What happened to StarLight Player. Is it discontinued? The NiceMac website is no more.

I've uploaded a copy of the app to our servers. But you're right: It looks like the dev's site is no longer available.

Great app, but StarLight 1.1.0 is not working again because of changes SiriusXM made to its site. See NiceMac's forums to substantiate this.

Would love to see the addition of what is playing on each station from the menu. Other wise great app, especially the free part.

Love this app. Love that it supports full-screen in Lion. I have not had issues with audio drop outs or crashes. Plays nicely with processor and memory usage. Features I would like to see added that would make it five stars:
-ability to use the play/pause button on the keyboard as iTunes, Spotify, etc do
-use the standard spacebar hot key to play/pause while in the app instead of using it to star/unstar channels
-ability to disable the menubar icon

If the developer were to implement these features and throw this app in the Mac App Store, I'm sure s/he could get < = $4.99 a pop for it. Of course, I'd love to see it stay free, but if I'm going to request features, obviously I'm willing to pay for the development effort!

Every 2 minutes or so you lose the signal. I think this is just a design flaw. I trashed the application and use Sirius now.

This was fixed in 1.1.0 and later.

>>Fixed 1-minute re-buffering issue.
Thank you! This has been driving me crazy for the last day and I had to revert to the web player.
