Record adio stream?


Is there a way to record audio streams?

I'm on a horribly slow connectiona and streaming ususally is too scrambled to enjoy. Any idea how I can record a stream so I can listen to in in better conditions?

Hi,


Audacity with input set to VOL will do the job, it records everything passing through the soundcard. There may be a better way to use it, haven't looked.

I obviously made an error when I included the link, not that I owe you any explanation. I edited my previous post to remove the link that has you so perplexed. Good luck.

cyborg: just thought maybe I'd missed the point...

Kirmonkey: I'd thought about that one, but there's the obvious drawback: I'd record a 20 minute file out of which I'd have to delete about 17 minutes of silence... There must be a more 'elegant' way of doing this (or maybe not?)

Is the silence in one piece or intersperced throughout the stream. Not sure from what you said.


Thinking though.....

I get the audio in short chiunks. If I use RealPlayer for instance, it will loead till the buffer is full, play about 30 seconds of sound, stop to fill the buffer again during about 1 minute and play another 30 secs. Really annoying!

Sorry, lost there.

Erm....

Try looking into ways to save the stream or fiddle with realplayer settings. I cant on my version, it crashes the programme.

Good luck.

ok, I finally got it to work somehow:

I'm recording a couple of programs for offline use from bbc world service. I'm not sure which app is doing the actual playing as the site opens a window from which playing takes place. Even at a very slow speed quality is decent and, more importantly, continuous.

I've had to open audacity before I opened the site's player, otherwise audacity claimed it wouldn't be able to record. When the site starts loading the program I start audacity record (with imput set to volume!! - thank you Kirmonkey) and the result looks great!

I have the gnome-media package installed, and have a pixmap for gnome-sound-recorder, but I can't figure out where the actual app is (slocate doesn't find it)
