Use StreamWriter To Record Music From Various Internet Radio Stations

Found an interesting FREE piece of software, called StreamWriter, that records music broadcasted by internet radio stations. There are other recorders out there; but, if you read the feature list below you will see that StreamWriter sets itself apart from other recorders. I also like the idea that you can download a portable version of StreamWriter, which is a great way to test and try the software, without performing an installation. In my testing I was impressed with the recordings (which can be done in tandem from various sources), the wishlist feature (that will look for, wait and record a specific song), and the ability to edit out sections of any MP3 you download.


Feature List:

  • Record as many streams as you want at the same time (MP3/AAC)
  • Automatically record a wishlist’s song when it’s playing on a stream
  • Player for streams and recorded files
  • Track splitting with silence detection
  • Function for manual cutting of saved titles
  • Tracks are named by a given pattern
  • Short songs (ads) can be skipped
  • Writing of tags to recorded files
  • Script-based postprocessing
  • Applying of effects to recorded songs (SoX)
  • Integration of different audio encoders
  • Scheduled recordings
  • Stream browser
  • Multilingual
  • Can be installed or used in portable mode

…and much more!

  1. I tried it, and I am very favorably impressed. The wishlist feature is even more powerful than one might infer from the way it is described. There is a streamWriter server that is monitoring all songs playing on literally many 100s of Internet radio stations. Your wishlist can include specific songs or specific artists. When anything on your wishlist comes up on _any_ of the many, many stations, the server alerts your client to connect to the appropriate station so that it can record the song. It works better than I would have expected.

    There is one bit of bad news: The program, though open sourced, is not a group effort; and the single author has ceased development.


    1. I found it in the forum associated with the program. There is a brief reference to it in English at the end of this forum thread:
      Here is Alex’s full announcement in German:
      You can paste it into to Google’s translator to get the gist of it. Maybe this direct translation link will work:


      1. David,

        Thanks for doing the legwork on that… It appears he is saying he will fix errors, keep the server going; however, no further development — YET it was most recently updated with some fixes and added some options. Sound like the guy is like me. He is retired, but he is not… LOL
