Replace statusbar with plain gtk.Label, use glib.timeout_add for clearing it up implicitly. check-in: 805dbd5181 user: mario tags: trunk

Add spacing for config dialog options (indented per plugin). Narrower labels, icons now show up. Undo newline-removal for Gtk3 tooltips (work with preformatted text instead). check-in: c02e9a3ec0 user: mario tags: trunk

window should appear, where streamripper shows its progress.</p>

<p>You can <link xref="configuration">configure the recording tool</link> according to audio types again.</p>

<section>
<title>Streamripper</title>

<p>The <cmd>xterm -e</cmd> prefix brings up the terminal popup. If you want
silent downloads in the background (instead of seeing its progress), remove
the xterm call.</p>

<table shade="rows" rules="rows cols">
  <thead>  <tr><td><p>Format</p></td>     <td><p>Application</p></td></tr> </thead>
  <tr><td><p><var>audio/*</var></p></td>  <td><p><cmd>xterm -e streamripper %srv</cmd></p></td></tr>
</table>


<p>To configure a default download directory, use the <cmd>-d</cmd> option to streamripper.


For example <cmd>xterm -e "streamripper -d /media/music/"</cmd> would use an absolute path.











Else it downloads to the current working directory (often your HOME path),

and creates one directory per radio station there.</p>



</section>

<section>
<title>fIcy/fPls</title>

<p>As alternative to streamripper, check out <link href="http://freshcode.club/projects/ficy">fIcy/fPls</link>
for recording ICEcast/SHOUTcast streaming servers.</p>


<p>It can be configured with <cmd>xterm -e "fPls %pls"</cmd> simply.</p>
</section>


<section>
<title>Graphical stream recording tools</title>
<p>You might also want to try a streamripper GUI or graphical
reimplementation. For instance there are:</p>
<list>
<item><p><link href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/stripper/">StreamRipStar</link> (Java), works best per drag and drop.</p></item>
<item><p><link href="http://launchpad.net/streamtastic">Streamtastic</link> (Java)</p></item>
<item><p><link href="http://kstreamripper.sourceforge.net/">KStreamRipper</link>, though no current version in distros.</p></item>
<item><p>VLC has built-in recording capabilities.</p></item>
</list>
<p>Which simplify defining a custom download directory, or how radio
streams are split (between advertisement breaks), and the naming scheme
for resulting *.mp3 filenames of course.</p>
</section>



<section>
<title>Youtube-DL</title>

<p>The recording settings have a specific entry for "video/youtube" URLs. To configure a custom download


directory, use <cmd>xterm -e "cd /media/music ; youtube-dl %srv"</cmd> for example. (The <cmd>cd</cmd>

trick works with streamripper too.)</p>
</section>


<section>
<title>Wget for MOD files</title>

<p>To download audio files from The MOD Archive directly, you can also
define a custom handler.  Scroll/click on the empty row in the recording apps


table.  There create a new recording MIME type <var>audio/mod+zip</var> with




a command like <cmd>xterm -e wget %srv</cmd>.  All mod formats (IT, XM, S3M,






etc.) are mapped to this generic type specifier. Using <cmd>curl</cmd> would
also work of course.</p>

window should appear, where streamripper shows its progress.</p>

<p>You can <link xref="configuration">configure the recording tool</link> according to audio types again.</p>

<section>
<title>Streamripper</title>

<p>There's already a default entry for recording radio stations:</p>



<table shade="rows" rules="rows cols">
  <thead>  <tr><td><p>Format</p></td>     <td><p>Application</p></td></tr> </thead>
  <tr><td><p><var>audio/*</var></p></td>  <td><p><cmd>xterm -e streamripper %srv</cmd></p></td></tr>
</table>

<p>Streamripper has a few more options of its own:</p>

<steps>
  <item><p>To define an exact download directory:</p>
     <list> <item><p><cmd>xterm -e "streamripper -d ~/Music/ %srv"</cmd></p></item> </list>
  </item>
  <item><p>Use a specific filename pattern:</p>
     <list> <item><p><cmd>xterm -e "streamripper --xs2 -D '%S-%A-%T-%a.mp3' %srv"</cmd></p></item> </list>
  </item>
  <item><p>Just record a continuous stream, for 1 hour, without splitting individual songs from a radio station:</p>
     <list> <item><p><cmd>xterm -e "streamripper -A -s 3600 -d ~/Music/ %srv"</cmd></p></item> </list>
  </item>
  <item><p>Pretend to be an audio player (in case recording is blocked):</p>
     <list> <item><p><cmd>streamripper -u 'WinampMPEG/5.0' %srv</cmd></p></item> </list>
  </item>
</steps>

<p>Whenever you leave out the <cmd>xterm</cmd> prefix, it runs silently in the background.</p>

<p>See the streamripper(1) man page or its
<link href="http://streamripper.sourceforge.net/faq.php">FAQ</link> for more tips.</p>
