Has anyone managed to get a streamripper working with Slimserver? I'd like an easy way to transcode some of my flac playlists into mp3s. So far, all the stream ripping software that I've pointed at http://localhost:9000/stream.mp3 GPFs or otherwise blows up trying to capture the stream.

I assume you're running Windows?

Have you tried the manual-but-works WinAmp model? Get your
stream working the way you want it and then hit record?

Personally, I think it would be a LOT easier (and faster!) to
run those playlists through some easy scripts and convert them
that way. Whew.

foobar2000 will convert the files much faster than realtime...

Foobar: Yes, I had thought of that. But my library is all whole-album flacs so playlist entries look like this:


#EXTINF:-1,Missa prolationum - 1 Kyrie I
file:///D:/Recordings/Music/b_Renaissance/Ockeghem,%20J/Missa%20Prolationum%20-%20Marian%20motets%20-%20Hilliard%20Ensemble.flac#0-67.9066666666667
#EXTINF:-1, 2 Christe
file:///D:/Recordings/Music/b_Renaissance/Ockeghem,%20J/Missa%20Prolationum%20-%20Marian%20motets%20-%20Hilliard%20Ensemble.flac#67.9066666666667-226.666666666667
#EXTINF:-1, 3 Kyrie II
file:///D:/Recordings/Music/b_Renaissance/Ockeghem,%20J/Missa%20Prolationum%20-%20Marian%20motets%20-%20Hilliard%20Ensemble.flac#226.666666666667-298.64

and etc. Foobar doesn't have a clue how to handle that stuff.

I'm was really hoping to find a stream ripping client that will listen to stream.mp3 and write mp3 files with appropriate titles, tags, etc....just like the stream ripper hosted at sourceforge can do with with shoutcast streams.

I suppose a script will be the answer, except that I don't have any facility with awk, perl or python, so I'll have to kludge up something in C.
