LibreTime is open broadcast software designed for scheduling and managing radio programming. It offers a comprehensive set of tools for broadcasters to organize, automate, and stream their content over the airwaves or online.


  • Web-based remote station management – authorized personnel can add program material, create playlists or smart blocks, and stream in live, all via a web interface.
  • Automation – LibreTime has a scheduler function that enables users to create shows with content for playback at the exact date and time specified. Playlists, smart blocks and remote stream URLs can be used multiple times.
  • Solid playout – LibreTime uses the open source Liquidsoap streaming language for reliable and precise playback to multiple outputs.
  • Open, extensible architecture – stations are free to extend and alter all parts of the program code, under the GNU AGPLv3 license.
