Import Files

Import Files will open a window box, which will ask you what files you want to open. You can also do this by dragging files from directories, directly into Tuniac. It should be stated that the function will not open directories. If you want to open directories, you should use the Import Directory function. You can also import m3u and pls files in here.

Import Directory

Import Directory will open a window box, which will ask you what directory to look in for adding songs. It will add all the files Tuniac can read from within the chosen directory. It will work recursive in doing this. The same can be achieved by draggin directories directly into Tuniac. If you want to add specific files you should use the Import Files function. In the process of browsing the directories, m3u and pls files will be read too.

Import Stream

Import stream will let you add url's from the Internet of online stream providers. These often are radio stations (but may also be other kind of streams) that you may want to listen too. If so, you can use this function to add those stream sources to a playlist or just the media library. To do so you add the stream url in the box that appears on chosing this function.

These are the way you can follow to add streams from the shoutcast website.

Method 1 (easy)
  1. Go to the shoutcast website (duh), it's
  2. Use your right mouse button on this button on the site, corresponding to the radio station you want to use and save the pls file on your pc.
  3. Drag the pls file into the player.
  4. Click on (one of) your added stream(s) and enjoy listening to it.
Method 2 (if you want to play it hard :P)
  1. Go to the shoutcast website (duh), it's
  2. Use your right mouse button on this button on the site, corresponding to the radio station you want to use and save the pls file on your pc.
  3. Open the pls file you just saved using a thing like wordpad. It should look something like this.
  4. Add the stream you want to listen too into Tuniac. You do this by using what comes after the File1=, or the other corresponding places (see red rectangles above) and by pasting that information into the Import Stream dialog. Then push enter.
  5. Click on your added stream and enjoy listening to it.

ForceSave MediaLibrary

When using this function, your media library will be saved immediately. This will prevent you from doing a lot of work creating a very good media library and then losing it later if your pc crashes or something else happens. Normally the media library gets saved only when closing Tuniac.

New Playlist

This function will create a new empty untitled normal playlist. This can also be done by using the playlist manage tools.

Only show in tray keeps the program in the tray at all times and the last option will keep the program shown in the taskbar and in the tray in both circumstances.
