Install/Usage

Installing The Application

Copy the "radiow" directory to your SD under /apps
NOTE: DO NOT rename "radiow" directory.
Tested on PAL 3.2 - works fine.
Tested on NTSC 3.3v2, 4.0 - works great!

Playlists

Copy the playlist file to "/apps/radiow/pls" on your SD card
Saving playlists from WiiRadio will create a *.pls file under "/apps/radiow/pls".
Pressing the "+" button will add the playing station to the Playlists.


Internet Connection

Make sure you're getting a decent wireless connection on your Wii for better performance.


Free Space Requirements

WiiRadio requires free space on the SD card for caching. I'd recommend 10MB free.


Change Log

Version 0.3

- Whole new GUI thanks to TiMeBoMb
- Added a visualizer and black screen that acts as a burn reducer
- Loading streams from a playlist have been changed and bugs fixed
- Added a playlist delete option
- Hovering over stations or playlists now scroll giving you all the information
- Added Volume controls
- Added dynamic buffering (if your signal is weak)
- Fixed a crashing bug when parsing the ICY data
- Added more controls from the WiiMote (see above)
- Created a cache per genre so if the SHOUTcast DB does not respond you can play streams. If it does respond it will refresh your cache.
- Caches up to 1,000 stations per genre. No more waiting when you click next or previous
- Now using the new SDL port which improves the look and performance
- Text no longer uses a bitmap, it uses SDL-TTF
- Added informational pop-up's
- Lots of bug fixes

Version 0.2

- Changed logo - (Thank You TiMeBoMb for the new logo!)
- Added support for loading Playlist files (*.pls) from the SD card
- Fixed a few minor bugs
- Increased pre-buffer size (this seems to help streaming on the Wii)

Version 0.1 (Preview version)
