- Recording from stations that use the standalone Windows Media Player no longer distorts the listening experience.
This major release has the ability to make separate
tracks from playlists and commercial free music stations, the ability
to split long shows into separate files, and customize how shows
are named. There are some bug fixes and general polishing as well.
Here’s the details:

for recording commercial free music radio!)

set by the user. Useful for breaking up long shows.

open. Previously, some games or other programs couldn’t run after
installing Replay Radio.

- In the pick show and pick station screens, double clicking a
station or show automatically selects it.

complete tracks in commercial free radio).

like a real audio CD.
