I’ve been running ZaraRadio for over a couple months and it’s been fairly reliable. It’s running on a 2.4 gHz P4 with 512 meg of RAM. I tried it on a 250 mHz with 32 meg RAM to see if it would run and it did. Unfortunately I couldn’t even open the Sound Solution Plug-In on that machine, go figure. By the way, if you don’t have that plug-in I’d recommend getting it.
I have had to reset ZaraRadio a few times. For some unknown reason, it starts running more than one audio file at a time. At that point, I have to restart the program. It doesn’t seem to be much of a resource hog either. I can easily surf the web, edit Word docs and Excel files while it runs happily in the background.
I’ve figured out the automatic “Time” announcements, had to record my own. When I get time I’ll do the “Temperature-Humidity” also. If you’d like a copy of the time files, maybe I can figure out how to zip them up and make them available.
The “random track” feature doesn’t seem quite so random. Perhaps after it runs through a whole list you have to reload it. I have a directory with over 20, one hour TPR Blues Review shows. Seems like I hear the same ones to often for as many as I have.
I did the Google Translate on the help file thanks to your earlier post. When I figure out how to correct all the grammar and insert the visuals, I’ll make it available.
Overall I’d say it’s been a really good program. Considering the price (freeware) it’s fantastic.
