I have a number of radio shows that i like to listen to but am often busy at the time they are on.
The solution is to use streamripper to download the webcast of the stream for only that hour.
sudo apt-get install streamripper
Configure it to run at a particular time
Open a terminal window and run
Paste the line
1 12 * * * streamripper http://example.com/stream.mp3 -l 3600 -t –quiet
What does this mean
“1 12 * * *” This is just crontab syntax if you google it you will find guides easily
“streamripper” This starts the streamripper application
“http://example.com/stream.mp3” this is the location of the stream you want to rip
“-l 3600” The time in seconds you want to rip for
“-t” This tells streamripper not to overwrite the previous stream
“–quiet” tells streamripper to not log much information
If you look in your home folder you will now have a folder with your streams in it!
