streamtuner2 command [ channel,... ] [ title ]
Streamtuner2 is a graphical application for browsing through internet radio station directories, like: · Shoutcast · Xiph.org · SurfMusik · Internet-Radio · Jamendo · MyOggRadio · RadioBrowser · SomaFM · TuneIn · Streema
It utilizes your configured audio player or recording applications, which can be configured in the <F12> settings window.
It is written in Python and easy to extend. And besides the grapical interface, has a commandline interface. It comes with a couple of feature plugins and additional channels.
Without any options, it starts in the graphical mode, of course.

There's only one option for the graphical UI mode:
Loads Gtk3 via PyGI instead of Gtk2. This is implicit when running on Python3 anyway.
No-threading mode avoids some UI separation, but stabilizes the interface (in particular channel loading crashes occassionally) for some Gtk2/Gtk3 and Python combinations.
- -d plugin
Disable plugin from loading. Plugin names are all-lowercase and sometimes short versions of the channel or feature, such as "reddit", "xiph", "favicons" or "dnd".
- -e plugin
Load a plugin that isn't set by default.
Enable debug mode, which shows a lot of activity messages during Streamtuner2 running - including UI changes and network requests or extraction steps.
Show streamtuner version.
