Software dor capturing streaming audio


Can anyone recommend a proggie for capturing streaming audio programs from the web?

I have done a bit of searching and the best thing I've found so far is this:

http://www.mail-archive.com/freevo-d.../msg01796.html

"I solved the problem with sox and lame:

sox -t ossdsp -w -s -r 44100 -c 2 /dev/dsp -t raw - | /usr/local/freevo/runtime/apps/lame -x -m s - ./test.mp3

Now for the fun python bits "

If this is workable, can someone give me some tips on making this work on SuSE 8.2?

Many thanks,

Gonniff

Mplayer is good for that. It's documented well on the site.

footfrisbee,

Do you mean the section:
3.3 Streaming from network or pipes
MPlayer can play files from network, using the HTTP, FTP, MMS or RTSP/RTP protocol.

Playing goes by simply using adding the URL to the command line. MPlayer also honors the http_proxy environment variable, and uses proxy if available. Proxy usage can also be forced:

mplayer http_proxy://proxy.micorsops.com:3128/http://micorsops.com:80/stream.asf

MPlayer can read from stdin (NOT named pipes). This can be for example used to play from FTP:

wget ftp://micorsops.com/something.avi -O - | mplayer -

Note: it's also recommended to enable CACHE when playback from network:

wget ftp://micorsops.com/something.avi -O - | mplayer -cache 8192 -

I'm not much on this technology, so don't see how this allows me to save the file to HD and then burn to CD-ROM if I want later.

Please let me know if I've missed what you meant.

Natma,

Thanks for that. I'll have a look at that now.

To use the above example:

mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile mycapture.wmv http_proxy://proxy.micorsops.com:3128/http://micorsops.com:80/stream.asf

This command will dump the stream to the file "mycapture.wmv".

Check out the stream options in the manpage for mplayer.

Thanks, footfrisbee.

Sorry about not getting that the first time.

I'll have a go when I get home from work. Looks very promising!
