Recording streaming audio [SOLVED]
« on: November 08, 2015, 05:26:01 pm »
I have ben dabling with Audacity and  VLC player to record the following link. I am totally lost and  was wondering if someone  can help me  with this. I'm using Peppermint 6. I uninstalled Pulseaudio because it was  giving me issues. Thisis all i have to go on. This is actually the radio show that airs before mine.

I managed to download the track

open the link you posted right click on the page, click "View Page Info", click on the Media tab, highlight the mp3 audio file then click Save As, if you want give it a name and select the download location and download


Good luck

I think emegra is using Firefox.

if it helps, I think this is the link to the mp3:
http://stream.chuo.fm/audio/2015-Nov-01_11-30.mp3
(dug out with developer tools in Chromium)

Hi rmcellig,

I use a command line method to record audio streams, but you still need the nameof the mp3 file (as listed by PCNetSpec or as found in emegra's method using Firefox and the media tab -- so I really don't know if it is any quicker). Basically it goes like this:

You need to install mplayer (if you do not already have it). Then open a terminal session in the directory where you wish to store your downloaded stream file. In the terminal session run this command (changing the stream name to be the one found in the media tab and changing the file name test.mp3 to whatever name you prefer the downloaded stream to have):

Code: [Select]
mplayer -cache 1024 http://stream.chuo.fm/audio/2015-Nov-01_11-30.mp3 -dumpstream -dumpfile test.mp3

The size of the download of the 2015-Nov-01_11-30.mp3 stream was about 28.8 MB.

Hope this was helpful.

Regards,

That track appears to be different from the one rmcellig, posted


if all else fails you can download it from here

I chose emegra's  method and  it worked fine. Turns out there were two mp3 files. One was the first half hour of the show  and the second  was the second half hour. Thanks again!!!!
