I see that you indicate that Screamer Radio is Open-Source. It would like to know how to verify that. I would be wonderful if Screamer is Open-Source but I can't find any mention on the Screamer site. I cannot find a link to the source code anywhere and they are not at SourceForge or Google Code. Whats more, there are threads in the Screamer forum asking that it be made Open-Source so others could contribute but nobody from the project replied. I am an Open-Source evangelist and it is all I use so I would love access to a portable radio streamer.
I wish to say that I highly respect the work you are doing here and no other entity I know of has done more to bring Open-Source to the portable community.

Hi fcarson,
in fact the license of screamer radio is not so clear and very short:

Screamer Radio - License, updated 20070120
Copyright (c) 2003, Steamcore
-Link-
-Link-

2. Altered versions must be plainly marked as such, and must not be misrepresented as being the original software.

3. This notice may not be removed or altered from any source distribution.



In our download page is written:
Licenza Software/Software License: Freeware/Open Source


Freeware is referred to screamer radio
Open Source is referred to lame and other dlls used in the original Screamer package

in fact the Source code of Screamer radio is NOT available anywhere at the moment, but the short license says:
Permission is granted to anyone to use this software for any purpose, not including commercial applications, and to alter it and redistribute it freely

If You see we are not in compliance with this license, please explain your dubts here.
We want to be 100% in compliance with licensing of softwares redistributed in "X" version, as portable.

Many thanks for Your help

We had a confirmation by Screamer author that the program is Freeware.
I have changed the license info in download page -Link- (thank you, fcarson, for reporting).

However, the X-Screamer distribution is in agreement with program's license, therefore it will remain in our download section as "X-Software" (at least for now), but it will be removed from winPenPack suites, because they contain only open source software.
