    Re: HOWTO: Record internet radio using VLC

    you could try this instead (otherwise I'm not sure you can use "access=file"

    Code:
    cvlc --run-time=10800 http://www.live365.com/play/319909? --sout "#duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=raw,dst=/home/paul/mfn.mp3}" vlc://quit ;

    Re: HOWTO: Record internet radio using VLC

    ah, a slight hitch has arisen for me on the cron side of things.
    i used Gnome schedule to set up the cron, and had to select 'x application' as the behaviour in order for VLC to start up on schedule. However, though VLC starts and connects to the stream it wont write the saved .mp3 file.
    any thoughts on this?


    EDIT
    using the one time scheduler works fine, but recurring does not. strange...

    Re: HOWTO: Record internet radio using VLC

    hi, just wanted to add my vote of thanks for the script. Just spent the last few hours getting it working using Ruby => works an absolute treat! Much appreciated bheemboy.

    The Ruby system command gets 2 command line arguments for URL of station (details stored in a YAML file) and duration, as per the following:
    Code:
    system "cvlc --run-time=#{@duration} #{@url} --sout '#duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=raw,dst=/home/rob/Music/Radio/#{@outputfile}.mp3}' vlc://quit ;"

    Just felt compelled to add, a big thanks for this thread.. I've been looking for something like this, was using Streamtuner but I wanted automation.

    Linux never ceases to amaze me with the possibilities..

    Re: HOWTO: Record internet radio using VLC

    I have been trying to get this to work but when I run my script it just plays the radio station and the recording is no where to be found. This is what the terminal displays

    james@james-desktop:~$ /home/james/Desktop/recordmyshow.sh
    VLC media player 1.0.6 Goldeneye
    /home/james/Desktop/recordmyshow.sh: line 4: --sout: command not found
    james@james-desktop:~$ [0x2672048] dummy interface: using the dummy interface module...
    [0x7ff85c002cc8] pulse audio output: No. of Audio Channels: 2

    Here is my script

    #!/bin/sh
    NOW=$(date +”%b-%d-%y”)

    cvlc --run-time=3600 http://216.235.94.11/play?s=johnnyca...71473454218358 --sout "#duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=raw,dst=/home/james/music/JCradio/test.mp3}" vlc://quit ;

    I have changed it several times but the way with the least errors. The radio station I am trying to record is here

    http://216.235.94.11/play?s=johnnyca...71473454218358


    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Hi jlabomb
    I think your link's no good.
    Try your script with this link insted:-
    Code:
    cvlc --run-time=3600 http://216.235.94.11/play?s=johnnycashradio --sout "#duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=raw,dst=/home/james/music/JCradio/test.mp3}" vlc://quit ;
    Then look in the /home/james/music/JCradio folder

    Re: HOWTO: Record internet radio using VLC

    Thanks. That did the job. I don't know why the link didn't work because I could hear the audio when I ran the script. Anyway I have one more question. Is there a command to auto name the file either by a number or time and date? Thanks again this will be great for me.

    In your command, instead of file name test.mp3
    Try something like this:-
    JohnnyCash-$(date +"%b-%d-%y").mp3

    Re: HOWTO: Record internet radio using VLC

    What's sorta interesting about that site is the podcasts are of much better quality - the stream you're recording is 96k, 20500. Can't tell if the external player on the site is using the lower or higher quality mp3's

    I don't know why the link didn't work because I could hear the audio
    There was to much 'info' in that link - vlc would 'stop' after getting the stream so no --sout

    As a hint - sometimes play a link in vlc, then as it's playing go - tools - codec info.. and see what url is displayed in vlc (location
