Amarok Script

Score 80%
Link:  http://
Downloads:  18902
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.

The same problem here :(
The script works well with eg. Virgin Radio, but not with last.fm ...

If you are interested in saving lastfm in general you probably want to have a look at this. But saving it with amarok would be much cooler... Although I'm not sure it this is legal...

last.fm is handled differently in Amarok, so it wouldn't be possible with a script like this.

Great script.
One question: to record I use "save podcast" but how do I stop recording?

 great skript

 by corinna on: Feb 1 2007

Here is a suggestion for a feature, which would make this skript superb:
While amaroK plays in the background I happen to decide that I'd like to have the actual playing song on my harddisk.

How about a Skript recording a radiostream song after song all the time, and a possibility to hit a button saying "save this". If this button is not hit while the actual song is still playing, then the song is deleted when the next song begins.

 Nice Script

I really like that it even splits the songs and saves them seperately, like that I can easily choose which songs I want to keep.

Great work!

Cheers, Thelonius

Maybe you can help me with that? ...

In both modes (always and record on demand) the stream records into one big mp3 file. I start and stop recording with the script manager and I'm running Amarok 1.4.5. and streamripper.

Please help!

Thanks :)

Q: How can I make streamripper rip to a single large file instead of a lot of little files?
A: Use the -a flag to rip to a single large file. Use the -A flag to disable the creation of the little files.

It would be fine, if some parameters can be set out of amarok.

The first lines of "OnDemand-Script" like this:
== snip ===
Options="-o larger -k 1 --quiet -z"
== snap ===

should be changeable out of amarok.

Can I use this Script in Amarok 2.0 ?

Unfortunately this and almost any other complex plug-in is permanently broken in Amarok 2.0.

Someone decided that the only plugins that should be allowed must be written in Java script, not call any external libraries processes and only call these functions within Amarok: http://amarok.kde.org/wiki/Development/Script_API

I consider this very limiting and have filed a feature request: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=179015

I would encourage anyone who wants this plugin to continue to work in future version to vote for that feature.

As far as I understand external calls are possible, just via qtscript. I didn't look to deep into it, but did a small test via the amarok console script executing:

var q = new QProcess();

And it seems to work. Should be possible to execute streamripper on this way. I might look deeper into it someday, but it would be great to see this script ported to amarok 2.0 soon. It is definitly one of my favorite ones and currently deeply missed! :)

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.
