internet radio

Postby twodogs on Tue Apr 22, 2008 4:30 pm

how do I record internet radio? I listen to trance, A State of Trance, using Shoutcast with Exaile. I want to record it (preferably mp3) so i can listen on my ipod.

Does anyone know how to do this? I searched and found nothing and not much on google either.
thanks for your help.

Dave.

This is taken from memory - it's close to impossible to do that, but luckily there are apps to do it for you
Googling
record web radio linux
gives some useful hits such as this one

Exaile has a streamripper plugin as well. It requires the command line version of streamripper to be installed. I used it once - it worked.

I install streamtuner which has shoutcast stations on it. If they aren't categorized, then just search for "trance", "chill", "ambient", etc. Install streamripper. Right click and hit record. You can record multiple channels at once. Be aware if you cannot launch your external player of choice, it must be done by choosing preferences and inserting your external player. I use audacious. On Hardy Ubuntu this is necessary as XMMS is out. On Gutsy which D is built on it seems audacious also works as well as should totem. The music is stored on your user name folder. But be advised, this is day one for mint for me. I have been having probs with hardy and decided to switch.

You can also record every sound that's outputted from your computer with i.e Audacity. However, I'm not entirely sure how/when/where it works since I've seen computers that can't record it entirely. My guess would be the soundcard or something. But both my computers can record outputted sound with audacity. For me, I just have to change the recording-system to ALSA:default. But the quality is bleh. Don't know why.

If you're using VLC to listen to internet radio, you can just have VLC stream it to a file with the codek and all of your choice.

Open VLC, and go

File -> Open network stream

In the bottom where it says Customize, paste in the url of the stream. Then mark off 'Stream/save' and press Settings.

Mark off 'File', and write a filename and location of where you would like it to be recorded. Now, you CAN dump the raw input, but that's just a waste of space, so don't do that. Mark off 'Play locally' if you want to listen to the stream at the same time.
Choose OGG as the encapsulation method, mark off audo codec, choose vorb and your desired bitrate.

Now press 'Ok', then 'Ok' again at the previous screen. Tada.

thanks everyone.

lol, to answer my own post (after experimenting with exaile) this is what i did...

in synaptic, get streamripper installed.
open exaile and add streamripper in plugins.
click radio tab on the left and found some cool trance.

i even did a search for 'a state of trance' and added it as a favorite.
linux rocks!
