View Full Version : [ubuntu] Recording off BBC iplayer using Audacity

December 15th, 2009, 08:38 PM
I have done this in Vista but was wondering if it was possible to do it in Ubuntu? What do I set the variouus dropdown menus to do to this (please don't ask me to stick something in the terminal - I am a newbie on that front! :confused:).

Never used BBC iplayer but I know you can use youtube-dl (might need a few tweaks) to download videos. I use it for sites other than youtube. If it's audio streams you're after then mplayer can do that with a command like
mplayer mms://site-streaming-audio.com -ao pcm:file=/home/username -vc dummy -vo null Assuming the audio stream is an mms site and you want to copy it to your home folder.
