Rip a Stream with StreamRipper

Hi All,

I don't know how many of you like to listen to online radio channels. But I do :)

At times you may have some of your fav channel shows at some odd times and you would still not want to lose them.

What to do?? Simple - Rip the stream.....

Here is how you do it:

1. Install StreamRipper using Synaptic.
2. Once it is done... From there on its as simple as issuing this below command :

streamripper URL

Note: If you are behind a proxy - then issue the -p Proxy_address option - replace Proxy_address with your proxy_address in this format: protocol://username:password@address:port

Cheers and Happy streaming and happy radio-ing....

Dont forget to check out the man pages of Streamripper :)

Take care,
Ananth Gouri
