Following my previous post, Experiments with RadioDNS, I'm pleased to announce that the RadioVIS demo application is now available as open source software, under the Apache 2.0 license.

The application demonstrates radio station DNS lookup, querying for available services using DNS SRV records, and the RadioVIS protocol for displaying images and text messages. The code is written in Python and uses the wxWidgets user interface library.

Please note that this software is intended for those who want to find out more about the technical details of RadioDNS and RadioVIS, and not for end users. Also note that at the present time there is no RadioVIS service available for BBC radio stations. We are making this code available as part of our explorations with RadioDNS, and look forward to technical feedback.

To download, please visit our RadioDNS project page here. We'll put any updates to the code on the project page and announce them on this blog. The source code is also available on GitHub here.

For more information about RadioDNS, or to join the RadioDNS developer discussion group, please visit http://radiodns.org.

    I wish Apple would have implemented RadioDNS instead of their own proprietary technology into their iPod Nanos, the tagging feature in them is good, but closed. It won't go anywhere.
