Update: there is a red record button on VLC , that once pressed saves the media to the home/music folder
.Isn't it obvious once you know about it .
I've been messing and researching and installing and deinstalling and reading and trying everything several times over and over. But I have not managed to save a stream to disk whilst, listening to that stream in linux mint.
In banshee, I've installed the stream recorder .Which has the option of saving "unchanged stream" to disk .But saves this stream with a .audio-stream file extension ? wtfe, what the flipping eck!. Can't be right surely?.I can re-encode the stream to a mp3 but that's a lo-fi way of doing things in our hi-fi world .
so I tried out rhythm box with the plugin 'Internet radio browser plugin ' though it only lists about 20 stations. I can't find a plug-in to save stream to disk .Though there is a mention of works with stream ripper ,which aI installed but don't see any option in rhythm box to save stream.
Tried out Exaile ,nothing shows up in the radio streams window!.
so now I'm trying VLC .Even though I can save the original stream to disk with vlc, I can't seem to do it whilst hearing the music . Even when I check the 'display stream box ' etc .No music playing! .
Anyone help me out with this .All I want is a simple music player that I can,search for internet radio, listen too whilst saving the beuatiful sounds I hear for later enjoyment .
