|| ||Wed, 28 Dec 2005 04:56:12 +0100|
Type: amaroK Script
RecordRadio is a simple bash script that plugs
into amarok and uses streamripper to record radio
stations you listen to.
Now as of version 0.2 it can also save podcasts to
your music collection!
Simply enable it as a plugin, and when you connect
to any http stream it plugin will spawn a instance
of streamripper that will record the songs and
place them in subdirectories within a directory
called "Music" in your home. Five seconds later
amarok will start listening to a relay server on
port 8017 so as not to use unnecessary bandwidth.
To save a podcast or remote mp3 or ogg file to
your music collection, right click on it in your
playlist, select "RecordRadio" and "Save Podcast".
They will be saved in a directory called
Music/SavedPodcasts within your home directory.
If you wish to change the streamripper options or
the directory where things are stored right-click
on RecordRadio in your script manager and click
edit. These are simply variables that are set in
the first few lines of the file.
License: RecordRadio is released under the GPL.
You need to have streamripper installed. It comes
as part of Debian and several other distributions.
You can also download it from
If you are using Mandriva 2006 you can get
streamripper from "contrib". However for
RecordRadio to work you will need to update to the
latest version of Amarok due to a bug in 1.3.1
For RecordRadio to run need to have a few
standard GNU commands available: (awk, egrep, ps,
RecordRadio has been tested on and works with
Amarok == 1.3.7, 1.3.1 will NOT work!
Streamripper == 1.67.17
When you start an internet radio station your
playlist will be cleared. (This can be fixed as
soon as the amarok developers fix the playMedia
Sometimes the server is full and cannot support
an additional connection for streamripper so you
can't record that station, so it simply will not
be recorded and you will continue to listen to it
