Post Automatic naming of streaming audio files with streamripper
I just had an interesting surprise while recording streaming audio. I normally use VLC and cron to automatically record online radio (WETS), but I have been experimenting with streamripper...

streamripper http://www.wets.org/sites/default/files/wetsfm.m3u -d /home/user1/Desktop/ -l 10800 > /dev/null 2>&1

...to record two hours of NPR (Cartalk and Wait, Wait) which are scheduled consecutively. Since I haven't specified a name, the output is usually just a single dash mp3 (-.mp3) that contained both shows. But this weekend when I checked my recorded mp3, I found two separate files, one for each show with titles...

- CAR TALK FROM NPR WITH TOM & RAY on WETS FM-HD1.mp3

- WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME FROM NPR WITH PETER SAGAL on WETS FM-HD1.mp3

It appears that streamripper automatically parsed each show into a separate file and named each file with the title of the show.
I am not sure if I updated streamripper recently or if WETS has updated their audio stream, but this is really neat. I don't have to parse or name my mp3 files, streamripper is doing it automatically.

Pretty handy--and those are two great programs.
