Keilly: Listen Again v2.0

Listen Again v2.0


I've just uploaded a new version of the ListenAgain widget. This version adds the much needed, and much requested, ability to skip forward and back through playing programmes. Rather than fast forward the skip jumps ahead in convenient increments.

Funnily enough the thing that took the longest time was drawing the new image for the control buttons.

Requires RealPlayer

Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger is required. If you're using Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, Show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget's icon in the Widget Bar to open it. If you're using a browser other than Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, unarchive it and place it in /Library/Widgets/ in your home folder. Show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget's icon in the Widget Bar to open it.

Troubleshooting: If you cannot play radio streams, and also cannot play streams directly from the BBC web site in Safari then RealPlayer is probbaly not installed or configured properly.

Lovely widget. Thank you very much. Also filched the buttons and had a look at gimp for the first time so thanks for that too.

Looking forward to renewing my aquaintance with SF after 36 years in the autumn.

I love this widget!
It would be even greater if you could choose to listen to any of the previous 7 day broadcasts like you can on the BBC web site.
Perhaps in version 3?
