Making a local copy of streaming music

Do you know how to locally save a song from a music stream? Suppose I'm listening to dogmazic radio, and I hear a song I like; how do I save it to my hard drive?

Re: Making a local copy of streaming music

If you use jack server (I think, I never used it) can't you write the sound you hear directly to a .wav?
That would also be a convenient way to solve this if the song already started for example, or if you don't want to burden the stream with two readers.

Re: Making a local copy of streaming music

streamripper's cool. Thanks!

Now I need to find out more about streams; it seems f I "tune in" in the middle of a song, I have no way of storing the unheard beginning.

Also, it would be cool if streamripper kept the ripped files in fast memory (not on disk / slow permanent storage device), awaiting for me to tell it which songs it should keep and when to dump them to disk.

Make a filesystem in ram and store the streamripper songs there, you can then wade through them and copy what you like to your hard disk. Mind that everything will be lost on a crash or reboot. Also be sure to set a decent maximum on the filesystem (use tmpfs) to prevent it filling up all your ram.

save youtube videos with an ff add-on (eg videodownloadhelper), then save the audio stream with avidemux.
