>Installation and
>configuration was a breeze. Now when I tune into various Shoutcast streaming
>radio feeds, Streamripper slices 'em up, saves the separate MP3 files and
>them into MyMusic folder. I suppose Napster will catalog them when I fire
>it up
>next. Right now I am listening to Squidradio indie.pop and in the last 45
>minutes Streamripper has saved and titled The Apples In Stereo, The Spinanes,
>Jets to Brazil, Tortoise, Death Cab for Cutie, Pixies, The Sea and Cake,
>Lambchop, Sebadoh, Guided By Voices, TransAm, Modest Mouse, Pinback, Tsunami,
>Shriekback and Too Much Joy (!)
>I wonder what I will collect when I leave it on all year!? A Heavenly Jukebox
>on my own PC?
>Streamripper is an open source (GPL) program that connects to streaming MP3
>servers and downloads the tracks to your hard drive, and this is it's home
>page. hear it roar.
>Streamripper started as a way to separate tracks via shoutcast's
>title-streaming feature. this has now been expanded into a much more generic
>feature where part of the program only try's to "hint" at where one track
>starts and other ends, then allowing a MP3 decoding engine to scan for a
>mark, which is used to find an exact track separation.
>Streamripper is now part of the FreeBSD standard distribution, mentioned
>in the
>Linux MP3 HOWTO, known to compile on many platforms such as Linux, Windows,
>FreeBSD, BeOS, OS/2, this is not surprising as portability was constant
>consideration during development.
>With the emergence of file sharing protocols such as Napster, Gnutella and now
>Mojonation and Freenet the average internet user can download nearly and MP3
>one wants in a matter of no time, but many times people don't know what they
>want. Streamripper allows you to download an entire station of music, many of
>these MP3 radio stations only play certain genre's so you can now download an
>entire collection of goa/trance music, an entire collection of Jazz, punk
>whatever you want.
