Windows 10: Internet Radio on Linux VM - Great program - Cantata
Internet Radio on Linux VM - Great program - Cantata
If you like Internet Radio and you have a Linux VM (or even a LINUX HOST) there's a great FREE program - CANTATA out there (actually most stuff on Linux is available FREE). You will need a standard Linux GUI though for the program to run.
Unlike most programs when you've selected say a CITY it will sort by GENRE -- much better than getting a load of say 100 stations and have to sift through them to get what you like.
You need to install also mpd (music daemon). Your package manager should have these.
When starting Cantata for the first time (ensure mpd daemon (service) has been started and choose single user mode for desktop working.
Program will also play streamed music etc from a variety of sources but I use it for Internet Radio -- there's NOTHING even remotely as convenient in Windows unless you install something like Logitech media server and that's a SERVER so to play it locally on Windows you need something that the server plays into -- !!!
This program plays locally !! no extra software needed.
Why more programs can't sort stations by GENRE is beyond me !!!!!
It is available on Windows also.

Looks quite nice, thanks.
tried TuneIn for Windows app this week, it does handle genres, too. Anyway, love to find a nice Linux solution!
I'm looking for a Windows app that can replace the Linux Cantata app that can give you Internet Radio (Free stations) with a decent sorting --Location, City and particularly by GENRE. Most Windows apps give you all the stations in a...
I have Windows 10 and run Linux on a virtual machine in VMware.
Is it possible to set it up so my internet traffic only runs through the Linux VM and not through Windows? I figure this would be a good setup for security.
Is any decent program (Windows) for Tunein -- they've 100% ruined it on Windows -- now it's hopeless to get a station easily - they used to have it to arrange easily by city and Genre. Now you just get ALL the stations in a city - which...
Updated to windows 10 last week, everything fine except I cannot stream my music from my computer to roberts internet radio. Eveything is correct ie sharing and allowing ,the computer recognises the radio in devices but radio states
(No upnp ...
I am working on a Raspberry Pi internet radio with some python codes I borrowed and a customized design interface on a 3.5" LCD touchscreen.
This is my work in progress ( I am still working on a case.)
