    [SOLVED] Want to save streaming audio from Internet


    Using Debian Lenny
    I want to record some clips from a website
    RSbell interview with Dr. Apsley - IMREF
    There are 5 clips.

    I tried using Mplayer: I opened the first clip and passed the url to Mplayer.
    Code:
    joe@debian:~$ mplayer http://www.curenaturalicancro.com/audio11.html
    MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.3.2-DFSG-free (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team
    CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.70GHz (Family: 15, Model: 1, Stepping: 2)
    CPUflags:  MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 0 3DNow2: 0 SSE: 1 SSE2: 1
    Compiled with runtime CPU detection.
    mplayer: could not connect to socket
    mplayer: No such file or directory

    I'm not familiar with Mplayer. Maybe someone can help with with this, or
    suggest another program.

    Thanks

    Normally you can use the -dumpfile and -dumpstream options with mplayer. But this is a flash file, and my mplayer is having trouble with it. I found the direct address to the audio:

    http://www.curenaturalicancro.com/flash/cnc-audio11.swf

    When I try it with mplayer, I don't get a file that is playable. I tried saving it as a mp3, ogg and wav.
    Code:
    $ mplayer -dumpfile audio11.wav -dumpstream http://www.curenaturalicancro.com/flash/cnc-audio11.swf
    I did find that you can just download the audio, and play the .swf file with Firefox.
    Code:
    wget http://www.curenaturalicancro.com/flash/cnc-audio11.swf

    Thanks. I managed to find all the .swf files for the clips.
    Maybe I can find a way to convert them to ogg or mp3

    I have used Soundconverter successfully for that. And K3b also for burning CDs also.

    I want to record some clips from a website
    In AntiX I use Streamtuner in conjuction with Xmms to rip streaming audio fro fm radio on web.

    All above applications should be in Debian Lenny Synaptic Package Manager with the right repositories Enabled in sources.lst. I run Antix instead of Debian, but my sources.lst include Debian Lenny and Squeeze, Stable and Testing.

    Whenever I need to save a streaming file from the internet I just yank it out of the Mozilla cache.
    It's really simple. Simply sort the files by time and look for the right file type. Open it to make sure it's the right one, then save it somewhere else.
    Cogito ergo surf - I think therefore I network.
