View Full Version : OT: capturing/playing Real Media at scheduled times

I have a question that's slightly off topic, I think.

There's an internet radio broadcast (EMUSIC http://rm1.refugemedia.com/ramgen/encoder/wdiy.rm) that I'd like to listen in to. It broadcasts on a thursday every week at 11pm (GMT -5:00).

However, this is a slightly inconvenient time, and I keep forgetting to tune in.

Are there any programs that can be set up to capture a stream at a scheduled time (don't care what format it would be saved in), such that I can play it back at a later time on my SqueezeBox?

I thought that was only for Shoutcast? Does it work for Real Media?

Take a look at Net Transport:
<http://lycos26486.l97.lycos.com.cn/default.htm>
(Ummmmm, Chinese Lycos! Tasty.)

Has built-in scheduling, which I have never used -- I have,
however, used it to... erm... timeshift (!) some BBC
transmissions (in RealAudio), and it's worked wonderfully.

There's Total Recorder for Windows:

http://www.highcriteria.com

It supports saving any audio stream (via virtual sound card drivers) to
either WAV or MP3 files. You can have it run at a scheduled time and
launch a URL, so it effectively will trigger RealOne (or Windows Media
Player) at the right time, start recording the audio stream, and then
(optionally) kill the player after the specified recording time has ended.
It works very well.

On the Mac there's Audio Hijack, about which I know very little, except
that it exists and that I believe it's fairly well regarded.
