Internet Radio or Podcasts?

Are there any plans to add support for Internet radio feeds or Podcasts to Strawberry?
In other players, you can add URL links for radio stations, which I find useful. I'm not asking for a radio search feature, but perhaps the option to add links can help.
With podcasts, you might need to add a subscription service, but this can be another worthwhile feature.

Playlist / Add Stream

@jonas That helps, thanks.
I can't see a way to give a name to the stations, rather than using the somewhat unwieldy long name it provides, but I have added a few stations to a playlist folder called 'Radio'.
Resurrecting an old thread, I would also like to rename stations, so I don't have to remember that, for example, "https://ais-sa3.cdnstream1.com/2440_128.aac" is actually my local KOPB stream. Is this possible?
@depmco Not intuitive, but if I gather streams into a playlist -- then "favorite" that playlist (double click star) -- close the playlist -- and reopen from the list of favorites in the Playlists Sidebar -- Then, and only then, can I right click on a stream and "Edit tag 'Title' ". In my Strawberry, the text I type is annoyingly superimposed in the edit field, but it does work.
Prior to discovering this, I went through a tedious process of creating a playlist of streams, saving it and then editing all the titles of the saved playlist in a text editor. The method above seemed easier to explain.
Perhaps Jonas does not want to introduce "feature creep" in Strawberry, but the stream function is pretty spartan and could use a little love, IMHO.
@silver-sun I somehow missed this response. I'll give it a try. Thanks!
Just a suggestion if you want something relatively simple for radio streams. PLS playlist file:
Create following in text editor (i.e. Notepad), save with .pls extension (i.e. "Radio.pls).
Title1=Whatever title you want
Title2=Whatever title you want
and so on...
If you want them in some specific order and add new ones later you just increment numbers.
+1 on this... i used a bunch of streams in clementine and adding them was a no brainer... now i cant add them without jumping through hops. The streams itself work just fine when added to a playlist, so why not have a simple feature to have them in the "Radio" selection too?
I registered to +1 this idea. I have no interest in the random radio stations that appear under Radios. It’s a complete waste. I already know the stations I want to listen to. Yes, I can (& have) added them to a playlist, but it seems bizarre to have a shortcut to this section that is useless to me while playlists aren’t as convenient or as discoverable.
I need this feature, with clementine is possible to add your own radio streams with url on Internet section on Strawberry maybe Radio Section, i think it's easy and not related to playlist, because if I need to delete actual playlist? The stream dissapears.

For me, this feature would be completely useless.

@totti_777 I just added my Radio to Strawberry... previously, I loaded the contents of the 'Radio' tab and ended up with one or two I liked, but couldn't work out how to 'add radio'.
So then - as with PyRadio which I usually use - I mostly added those by copying the URL from radio-browser.
You can do the same job with an m3u playlist:
#EXTM3U #EXTINF:0,🗫 BBC - Radio 4 Extra http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/nonuk/sbr_low/ak/bbc_radio_four_extra.m3u8 #EXTINF:0,🎵 101 - Smooth Jazz http://jking.cdnstream1.com/b22139_128mp3
I save playlists separate from my media players after having lost some in the past - so this works well (and Strawberry is good at getting Lyrics for many stations) so that I removed my alternative GUI radio player.
Try Musconv! It is one of the best music apps I can ever get. If you search for an artist, you will get a playlist of all his songs which you can transfer easily.
