Radiosure is a free program for Microsoft Windows that you may use to play and record Internet Radio on devices that run Windows.

Internet radio has become very popular lately with thousands of radio stations streaming music and audio content nonstop to a worldwide audience.

Most music players are capable of playing Internet Radio without installation of add-ons; All that is needed to start listening to Internet radio is the url of the radio station. Radiosure is a radio music player that ships with thousands of built-in stations that you can tune in with the click of the mouse.

While experienced users access websites like Shoutcast directly to load radio stations in software music players, inexperienced users may like the idea of an all-in-one application that starts playing music instantly and that makes the selection of music stations easier.

The music player lists more than 17000 Internet radio stations in its interface which can be listened to with the click of the mouse button. All stations are listed by name, country, genre and language with the option to sort and filter by any of the parameters.

The search helps you find stations of interest, for instance by entering a genre you are interested in, or a station name if you have a favorite one.

All results are displayed in the programs interface, and to make things easier the next time, you can add stations to the favorites with a click on the heart symbol. Here you can access them directly at any time to play them without having to use search to find them first.

When you start playing a station it displays the quality of the stream at the top as well. In addition to that, it may also display a cover or picture of the band or artist on the screen which you can disable with a right-click.

The only other feature worth mentioning is the record button which can be used to record the current stream to the local computer. Recordings will automatically be split by track if supported by the stream, and an option exists to skip already recorded tracks. The functionality is however not as advanced as that of specialized tools like Streamripper or Stationripper.

You can set the recording directory in the options. Other options available here include hotkey support to control playback and switch stations, and a skin manager to change the applications design by installing skins.

A portable and installer version of Radiosure is available at the developer's homepage. The program is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows Vista and Windows XP.


If you are looking for a radio player with recording capabilities, then RadioSure is definitely one that you may want to check out. While it lacks some features, such as displaying a station's streaming quality before you tune in or options to record multiple stations at once, it is an excellent program for anyone who wants better Internet radio manageability.

Note: The newest free version of RadioSure supports the recording of two streams simultaneously.

    The warning message about AAC streams when you load streams is because you don’t have the free Orban AAC/aacPlus Player Plugin installed.

      Justin, thanks for the information.

    does this support AAC ? or only mp3 streaming

      I’d say it supports all pls streams but I have not tried that so cannot verify it 100%.

    Thank you Martin for a most informative and viable solution (it allowed me to play streams from a Netherland internet radio station in my WMP)! Continued success to you!

    You must convert file.pls to file.m3u
    because file.pls open with winamp and file.m3u open with wmp.

    Hey, even i can do it, i stumbled through it and it works great! The only instruction advice i will add as i had to figure this out, when the wmp box opens that says save or open the bar on right says wmp click that drop down and select “open pls in wmp” once you do that it will work . Took me quite some time to discover that as i am no computer expert by any means. Having said that, previously i had downloaded codec packages and something about aac. None did any good. This rocks, i listen to a lot of internet radio and a number of them have dropped flash player and getting wmp to work had been a nightmare. So many thanks for this great solution to another problem that Micro-Hell will not even address. Peace- Out

    openplsinwmp came in a zip file. I unpacked it, and didn’t find anything that looks like an executable, and even the files in the “doc” folder were in a format windows didn’t recognize. I’m not stupid. you said it would open effortlessly. It didn’t. This a rabbit hole I don’t want to go down.
