UK Radio Streamer available for Windows Phone

We’re pleased to announce that UK Radio Streamer is now available in the Windows Phone Store for Windows Phone 7 & 8.

UK Radio Streamer is the quickest and easiest way to listen to more than 300 commercial radio stations from across the UK, including Absolute, Capital, Heart, Kiss and Magic to name but a few.

It’s free to download, and the latest Windows Phone 8 release adds favorites and the ability to upgrade to ad-free via a low cost in-app purchase.

Instant search enables you to find stations fast, displaying matching results as you type.

Stations play in the background, so you can continue to listen while browsing the web or using other apps, and the app integrates with your phone using your colour scheme and the ability to control playback using the regular Windows Phone volume and media controls.

Stations are streamed over the internet, so Wi-Fi or mobile data plan is required.

ConCast plug-in for DivX Connected

What is it?

ConCast is a SHOUTcast, Icecast and Podcast player for DivX Connected, capable of playing most AAC and MP3 streams.

Originally an experiment in adding audio to ConnectedVNC, the ConCast plug-in is primarily designed to enable users to stream sound from their PC to their set-top box using one of the many free SHOUTcast/Icecast servers, for example if you want to listen to Spotify or iTunes on your TV.

To stream audio from your PC

One of the easiest ways to listen to audio from your PC using ConCast is to set your default recording device to Stereo Mix, which you’ll need to enable if you’re using Windows 7 or Vista, and install edcast (to encode the sound) and Icecast2 (to broadcast it).

There are plenty of online tutorials showing how to setup edcast and Icecast2, and more ConCast specific information will be posted here soon.
