can start an Internet radio station with the SHOUTcast software which is free
for download. SHOUTcast is created by NullSoft, the same company that created
the popular Winamp Media Player. Before RipCast, users would primarily use Winamp
to connect to the SHOUTcast broadcasters and listen to the music. With Winamp
alone there was no way for someone to save what they heard to their computer.
RipCast is designed to download and listen to the music at the same time. Being
so there is very little work needed to obtain a large quantity of music, all you
need to do is choose a genre and a station that looks good, THOUSANDS to choose
from, and then as the broadcaster plays one song after another, Ripcast downloads
each song to a separate MP3 file. So by clicking one button you can essentially
get hundreds of MP3's that fit your taste.
Are you tired of searching the
net for that one song you forgot the name of?
Do you enjoy music that isn't
always played on local radio stations? Do you want to see your MP3 collection
grow faster then ever, with your favorite type of music, and with the least amount
Audio Ripper is the new way to download and listen to MP3's at the same time.
SHOUTcast is a streaming audio technology that RipCast is based upon. Utilizing
this technology, RipCast builds and organizes your MP3 collection with an easy
to use interface. An integrated web browser allows you to browse for the type
of music you like, and then you are fed one song after another from the genre
and station you choose. Poor quality streaming audio is a thing of the past. Most
of the popular broadcasters deliver CD quality digital streams. From techno to
jazz to hip-hop or from rock to classical to pop. RipCast gives you access to
a wide array of music tastes and genres from which anyone can download music they
offers - Live mixes from popular club / techno / electronic DJ's around the world,
various live performances and the latest and greatest tracks from the biggest
artists in every genre. Even relaxing jazz and classical pieces. A few of the
genres: Alternative, Hip-Hop/Rap/R&B, Pop, Techno, Trance, House, D'nB/Jungle,
Jazz, Classical, Rock, Oldies, Country, and many sub-genres.
