While using PCLinuxOS, I love to listen the music and sometimes comes a song, concert or remix or whatever, which I would like to have. And there's an easy solution.What you need is:
You'll find Kstreamripper
in Synaptic. When installed, go here
and download RecordRadio script
. Install RadioScript
Open Amarok/Tools/Script Manager
In a new pop up window, press Install Script button
on the right. Point it to where you've just downloaded the script (probably on your Desktop):
After installation you should see the installed script:
As you can see, you have now to options:
Personally I use RecordRadio-OnDemand, so I can record what I want, when I want (your choice). After choosing between these two options, Run the script!
Mark the option (in my case RecordRadio-OnDemand) and press Run
button. The icon
in front of RecordRadio-OnDemand
is now visible, which means the script is running:
Now (still in Amarok) for example, double click Shoutcast and choose a radio station, which you like:
Right mouse click on the selected station. Choose Record radio/Listen to and Record Stream
Don't forget that you can add your own favourite radio stations in Amarok's Playlists
and record the music. The options are numerous
. Open Amarok/Playlists/click Add/Radio Stream
and fill out needed info.
As you can see, you can also record Podcasts!
. Just add them in Amarok/Playlists/click Add/Podcast
Music will be automatically saved to /home/yourname/Music
as one folder with the name of the radio station and one as Podcasts. When advertising kicks in, Kstreamripper will separate them from another saved music files. Feel free to delete them.
Enjoy your new CD collections.
