Simple live pause and rewind radio program for PC?
I did a little research. Besides yourself, I found very few people asking the question. OK, I didn't look that hard. Here are a couple of posts I found.
As you can see, there was no joy for these queries.
There are several free programs that can record live radio broadcasts -- Radio? Sure!, Screamer Radio, and Spider Player, just to name a few -- but I couldn't find any freebie that can pause and rewind live stuff.
I haven't tried it myself, but WM Recorder (~$50 USD) has a feature where you can preview recording streams. In the preview window you can pause, rewind, and fast forward. It's not the same thing as a live pause/rewind/fast forward but it's pretty close. The demo I've seen is for recording video but they claim to be able to record audio streams so I assume the preview window will work on streaming radio stations as well. Like I said, I haven't tried it myself.
Although I haven't figured out how you would do it, you could try to write a solution yourself. The BASS audio library can record audio streams and playback anything. Seamlessly merging the two is the trick.
Them be my thoughts. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Good luck!
I did a little checking. The default buffer appears to be 300 seconds (5 minutes). I imagine you could bump the buffer to 15 to 20 minutes (or more) without any problems.
