Amarok Script

Score 80%

Submitted:  Dec 23 2005
Updated:  Dec 29 2008


RecordRadio is a simple bash script that plugs into amarok and uses streamripper to record radio stations you listen to.
Now as of version 0.2 it can also save podcasts to your music collection!

Simply enable it as a plugin, and when you connect to any http stream it plugin will spawn a instance of streamripper that will record the songs and place them in subdirectories within a directory called "Music" in your home. Five seconds later amarok will start listening to a relay server on port 8017 so as not to use unnecessary bandwidth.
To save a podcast or remote mp3 or ogg file to your music collection, right click on it in your playlist, select "RecordRadio" and "Save Podcast". They will be saved in a directory called Music/SavedPodcasts within your home directory.

If you wish to change the streamripper options (proxy settings etc.) or the directory where things are stored right-click on RecordRadio in your script manager and click edit. These are simply variables that are set in the first few lines of the file.

You need to have streamripper installed. It comes as part of Debian and several other distributions. You can also download it from http://streamripper.sourceforge.net/ .
If you are using Mandriva 2006 you can get streamripper from "contrib". However for RecordRadio to work you will need to update to the latest version of Amarok due to a bug in 1.3.1
For RecordRadio to run need to have a few standard GNU commands available: (awk, egrep, ps, wget)
RecordRadio has been tested on and works with
Amarok == 1.3.7 (with xine and arts engines),
1.3.1 will NOT work!
Streamripper == 1.67.17

Note: This script will not work with Amarok 2.0. Please see: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=179015

Known Bugs:
When you start an internet radio station your playlist will be cleared. (This can be fixed as soon as the amarok developers fix the playMedia dcop call)
Because streamripper for whatever reason cannot produce metadata on demand for some stations, there may be a delay of up to 15 secounds before you can switch to the replay server. However you can continue to listen to the station live until then, and it will still get recorded. These stations may also cause amarok to be unable to report the length of recorded songs. However these can be fixed by using a plugin called MP3Fixer, and restarting amarok.
Sometimes the server is full and cannot support an additional connection for streamripper so you can't record that station, so it simply will not be recorded and you will continue to listen to it live. If this happens you will receive an error to the effect that localhost refused your connection.

One reason this can occur is that certain websites don't want to have their content recorded and will disallow anything with the user agent "StreamRipper" from connecting.

You can of course get around this if you really want to. If you look at its manpage, streamripper has an option to change the user agent to anything you want. All you have to do is to add this flag to the 'options' string specified at the top of the file.

This is not done by default, because I have no desire to conceal things from the site it is connecting to.

I was searching for streaming media rippers and ran across this script. It's no longer working in the latest Amarok which is version 2.4.0. Perhaps you could look into this. It will install but does not work as stated within this version of Amarok (i.e. no right click menus.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
