Used to listen to Tunapie radio stations and watch a few of the TV stations in the past. Tunapie doesn't work anymore. Anyone know what happened to them?

Found this:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tunapie/+bug/696573

AFAICS this is Game Over for Tunapie/Shoutcast as including the API in Tunapie would contravene the Shoutcast license agreement - and tunapie would no longer be redistributable as GPL/Open Source.

I would suggest that you use the Icecast tab in preferences if you want to continue using Tunapie. I will look at improving the icecast functionality when I get the chance.

Best wishes,

James

If true, is there anything out there that will replace or be better than Tunapie?
