I wrote XMicroplayer to serve as a convenient player for the Sirius/XM online radio service, because I really didn't care for how the default web-based player worked, and I wanted something that was simple and convenient to use.

UPDATE - There's all kinds of confusion. Even I am confused, and I'm the poor sap whose trying to maintain this software. After the merger, Sirius closed out some XM accounts and made them into Sirius accounts (they did this to me, your humble software author). Because of this, I rewrote version 1.5 to be Sirius only. Then I learned that there were still a bunch of XM account users out there. For a while I was telling XM users to use version 1.4 and type their password in ALL CAPS (why? I don't know why... ask Sirius/XM about this confusing mess). At some point, Sirius and XM streams stopped working entirely when the Sirius Flash Player was released. XMicroplayer was completely nonfunctional at this time, and I gave up hope. Then at some yet later time, the old streams started working again. I don't know how long the streams are going to continue to work. Sirius/XM has a habit of making major changes on a whim without any notice and breaking things. Also, the channel lineup changes from time-to-time, so 1.7 ought to fix most of that mess, as of august/2011.

WHAT THIS MEANS - For me, a Sirius account user, on August 31, 2011, I am able to use version 1.6. The download link is to the left. There may be some problems with the channel map, you can email me at smbaker@gmail.com and I can look into it. For me it plays channels 8 and 33, so I'm happy.

Note: You do need an account with Sirius/XM to use my player. They do offer limited time trial accounts, and most people who have a car or home receiver should already have the online access. At some point they decided to charge extra for the "online" account so you might not get online service with your mobile service. In my opinion, this was a really bad idea of theirs...

Why use this player?

Well, I use it because I don't like the default one, which is based on a web interface (or built into WMP with embedded web interface). If there is interest in this program, then I will continue to add more features. You can send comments and suggestions to smbaker@sb-software.com.
