Main features of MidRadio Player version 4
1. Streaming playback of MIDI and audio
MidRadio Player supports MIDI and compressed audio (MP3, SoundVQ, WMA), covering the major music distribution file formats. You can enjoy streamed music playback simply by pressing the Play button on a webpage, or use MidRadio Player on its own to receive programs of consecutive songs.
2. A variety of playback control functions
In addition to Play and Stop, you can utilize the advantages of on-demand distribution by moving to the next or previous song, or directly selecting a song from the program list. You can also use a Seek function, and adjust the tempo and pitch.
3. Support for skins
You can change skins to customize the design of the operating panel, and even create your own skins.
4. Plug-in mode
An ActiveX Control module has been added so that MidRadio Player can be displayed inside your browser screen (Internet Explorer 5.0 or later) and use scripts to control the playback.
5. Proprietary language for program distribution
A dedicated control language MRML (MidRadio Markup Language) has been developed, allowing seamless distribution of music using MIDI and audio, and letting you create richly expressive content linked with a webpage.
6. Automatic update functionality
You can upgrade to the latest version of MidRadio Player simply by using a function within the player --- no need to access a website. If desired, you can specify that a confirmation screen will appear each time an update occurs.
7. Audition 40-voice cellphone ring melodies
Now you can audition 40-voice cellphone ring melodies.
Note: Since this uses a soft-synthesizer, the tones will differ from those on the actual phone.
