Streamtuner is a streaming media directory browser. Through the use of a C/Python plugin system, it offers a GTK+ 2.0 interface to Internet radio directories. Streamtuner does not actually play any files, it downloads a list of online radio streams and then tells the unix player (user's option) to play the selected stream. Streamtuner offers hundreds of thousands of music resources in a more common interface.

Streamtuner is free software, released under the terms of the revised BSD license.

There is also a version for the Nokia 770 Internet tablet.
