I work at a school and have setup a workstation to broadcast/stream the morning announcements for the teachers and kiddos. Teachers in the classroom access this stream via Windows Media Player or VLC...however, sometimes the teacher is running late, or their computer is having issues, so as a courtesy, I record them from my Ubuntu machine through VLC's magical red record button. From there, I upload them to a Google Drive folder that they have access to and problem solved. However, I am not always in my office first thing in the morning (resulting in some days without recordings).
The announcements start at the same time every day (that is, M-F) at 7:55 and run to about 8:05 (5~10 minutes depending on how much content there is).
Can someone please help me with a cron/command/script for VLC to automatically record our announcements daily at the specified time?
