I must add that re Jad 1.0 problem of inability to find downloaded files, the fact is that I found out that the files were NOT downloading although they seemed to be with streamripper + kstreamripper that I use.
They even showed as added to /home in my gnome system monitor, a good 1.5GB of them, which subsequently, today, disappeared!
So due to some mistake only some downloaded, which showed in /home and the rest which did not download did not show, of course.
Certainly using tunapie which works, or so it seemed, with Jad, will not download the files. Manually using kstreamripper works most times and downloads them to the hd.
Quite complicated and whimsical for an ignorant computer newbie like me.
So now I do the following: Go to the shoutcast page click on the 'tune in' button of my favourite station, choose when asked and if! ( I am not asked with every distro
which means disaster ) to place the link on Desktop from where I can open it with various applications ( I choose amarok ).
Next step is to go again to the shoutcast page, choose the same favourite station, right click this time on the "tune in" button and chose to copy the link, then open kstreamripper, click on add stream and on the url space of the popped up window
I right click and chose paste. Lastly I write some type of identification for the link, i.e. its name.
If I want to listen to this station and record also: go to Desktop, r. click on it > chose amarok and music flows! Then open kstreamtuner choose the station and "start stream". And recording starts ( for the time being unless something funny happens again
). Actually I can stop the music from amarok and leave the kstreamripper on all night, it will faithfully record everything. To stop it I click on its window.
By the way amarok is an excellent application, it is the first time that I tried it.
Just to add a comment which is funny for a non computer homo sapiens: Trying to place more than one link on Desktop from shoutcast although of a different station, I was told that the link already exists would I like to overwrite it? But I succeeded using another site i.e. listenlive.eu again only one link, otherwise would I like to overwrite it?
Frustrated, I proceeded and installed Jad again on the same machine at another place on the same hd not knowing really why.
And the new Jad lets me place as many stations from shoutcast as I want! It gives them a number (1), (2) etc.
Now I have two Jads beside each other, having used the same install cd:confused
