ABOUT
-----

 RNORadio is a GUI based internet radio player program for MP3 streams.
 The actual streaming and playback is based on the CgmRadio program, but
 RNORadio still works as a stand-alone program with no dependencies.


FEATURES
--------

 - Two GUI options: MUI or custom skin(s)
 - Displays stream titles in real-time from the MP3 metadata
 - Comprehensive station editor, with option to load station logo(s) from
   a local drive or Internet (both HTTP and HTTPS protocols are supported)
 - Supports multiple streams per station
 - Can import streams from PLS, M3U, Extended M3U, and XSPF playlist files
 - Has a Shoutcast search window
 - Animation support for custom skin elements, and a station's logo
 - Alpha transparency support in custom skins with images and animations
 - Can display extra information from stations, but currently only intended to
   display the "OneLiner" chat from Nectarine when using the MUI GUI
 - ARexx, command line, and tooltypes support


INSTALLATION
------------

 - Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program


USAGE NOTES
-----------

 The program should be quite straightforward to use, but here are some notes
 about using it practically.

 The Shoutcast search window can be opened from the Project menu or by using
 the simultaneous keypress RCommand and O (RCmd+O) hotkey. When the Shoutcast
 window/GUI opens enter search parameters in the search field or just leave
 the search field empty and click search to list the top stations. Searches
 can also be listed in ascending/descending order by clicking the column
 titles.

 Double-clicking a station, or selecting an item and clicking the Add button,
 will add a selected station to the stations list.

 If the Edit Stations window is not open the current station will switch to
 the new station immediately, otherwise the new station won't get used until
 the Edit Station window is closed by the Save or Use buttons.

 Stations can be selected in a custom GUI by using the right mouse-button
 pull-down/pop-up menu, or by left-clicking on a station/stream names in a
 custom GUI (hidden menu option) to open the Select Streams window.

 You can allocate up to 10 favourite Hotkeys for stations, by selecting the
 Hotkey option when editing streams and choosing an used Hotkey. To use it,
 press Right Command + (chosen number) to swap to that station.


COMMAND LINE OPTIONS AND ICON TOOLTYPES
---------------------------------------

 RNORadio uses non-standard command line arguments. Arguments must be given
 in the form of (note the "-" prefix): -argument parameter

 Allowed arguments:
 -autoplay  . . . . - Starts playback automatically
 -stream <url>  . . - Adds a new stream at startup
 -playlist <file> . - Imports a playlist file at startup
 -defdir <dir>  . . - Sets the initial directory to open files
 -cxkey <key> . . . - Sets a global hotkey to iconify/un-iconify the program

 Example:
 RNORadio -playlist "Work:Stuff/tunein-station.pls"


 The same arguments can be used as icon tooltypes, but by omitting the
 "-" prefix.

 Examples:
 CXKEY=ctrl alt r
 AUTOPLAY
 DEFDIR=Work:Stuff
