RecordRadio is a basic bash script that plugs into amarok and uses streamripper to record radio stations you listen to and add the songs into your music collection.
RecordRadio script is not very sophisticated right now but it should be easy for anyone to edit or enhance.
Simply enable it as a plugin, and when you connect to any URL that starts with http:// the 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 after connecting to the recording has started amarok will start listening to streamripper's relay server on port 8017 so as not to use twice as much bandwidth as needed.
Because of it's simplistic design it has the following shortcomings:
If you wish to change the streamripper options or the directory where things get stored you have to edit the file manually.
(This can be fixed as soon as a dcop interface is provided to preferences.)
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)
There is a five second delay before everything is running.
Sometimes the server is full and cannot support an additional connection for streamripper so you can't record that station.
RecordRadio is released under the GPL.
What's New in This Release:
Separate "always record" and "Record on demand" modes and several bug fixes.
