Yardbirds HiRes Player
Yardbirds HiRes Player plays internet radio streams (*1) and also streams music files (*2) including hi-res (*3) on a WebDAV server. If you are tired of listening to the radio, you can listen to your favorite music on a WebDAV server. Or vice versa. It provides a universal Playlist feature (aka Shortcut-List) (*4). Each Shortcut-List handles music files that span multiple WebDAV servers.
There's almost no limits with its number of servers, whole capacity of storage, and the number of tracks. It differs from major music streaming services. You can obtain much better cloud music streaming environment by using of home-server or NAS (*5).
It provides a better look-and-feel, mimicking audio devices. It has 100 radio stations preset as samples. It supports various playlist formats (pls/m3u/asx/xspf/webloc). You can easily add more preset radio stations with built-in tuner/iTracks file sharing/Open In.... Basically, it preserves preemptive playback mode if the radio-station/track list is displayed. The view will not be changed arbitrarily during playback sequence.
I will notify current situation in response to a message of customer reviews here.
