In 10.04 it was easy to display icecast streams; but whenever i click on the plugin nothing happens and no stream directory is loaded. The station recorder plugin seems to have disappeared also. If somenbody nows a fix thanx a lot.
StreamRipStar (Download via Sourceforge) is a convenient GUI for recording radio streams. I use it frequently.
Recording can be done time-delayed via built-in schedule manager, so you can record broadcasts while you are absent. (You may use an application like Sentinella for time-delayed shutdown of the system after recording has finished.)
Since it is in Java, you need to have Java runtime installed. This can be done via the Software Center: openjdk-7-jre.
It is run through Java:
Here are some screenshots.
"Add schedule job" dialogue:
(I found a streamtuner2 in Synaptic too)
Run Streamtuner - There are a lot of radios listed in there, search and just add them to bookmarks.
The music starts playing in external player (default player can be changed in Preferences). Recording automatically starts Streamripper - in terminal (by default, xterm).
Can only record mp3. Gives specific name of music file as specified by the radio.
Settings for custom folder for recorded files might not work, they go in home/user/name-of-radio.
Recording stops if xterm or Streamtuner is closed.
To add other stations that streamtuner might not know of - you can do that in Streamtuner - Stream - New Preselection. (See a possible problem here.)
You can use the pre-installed app Sound Recorder while you are listening to your music station.
