    I have been a fan of this software on the Windows side, to the point of running it inside VMWare. But lo and behold, a beta of a Mac OS player is now available! Nice little Christmas gift :D

    Trying to run it now... network error.... anyone with any luck?

    downloading it right now, i've been a fan of sopcast, been watching fights of manny pacquiao live on sopcast, so i've been looking for the same software and since the upcoming fight of manny is near, this is a very good time, thanks for a heads up

    ... finished downloading, cartoon network has "connect error" tried stargamestv works fine though, i'll be trying the other channels..

    Have you tried pointing your browser to the www.eradioportal.com website? They stream most radio stations in Manila and the provinces live. They sometimes get offline though...

    But a free software for Pinoy radio streaming, I'd love to have that too!
