Thread: Capture audio stream in VLC

  1. #1

    Default Capture audio stream in VLC

    I'd like to capture the audio stream coming from a local radio station:
    http://stream.ktoo.org:8000/ktoo

    This plays fine in VLC, and there's a "Record" button there but I'm
    never prompted to save the recording anywhere. I wandered through
    preferences but didn't see any default capture directory fields.

    Where/how do I capture the stream for playback later? The docs that
    I've stumbled across so far are pretty outdated (but I'm still googling).

    I'm running openSUSE 11.3, and VLC 1.1.5

    Thanks...

    ....Kevin

    I was able to make this work on my system (same OpenSUSE and VLC version).
    Media: Convert/Save: Network: put in your URL. Click Convert/Save and
    choose an output file.

    Good luck.

    That worked. Mostly. Howeve there was no sound during the capture.
    The file played fine afterwards though.

    Is there a way to both listen and capture at the same time?

    Thanks much...

    When you click the convert/save button and choose a an output file tick the
    "Display the output" checkbox in that dialog. Then you can listen and
    capture at the same time.

    OK, I'll give that a whirl, thanks.
    I also discovered I could open two instances of VLC and point them both
    to the server. Of course, that's using twice the bandwidth so I like
    your solution better!

    usually all installed applications will have their documents somewhere
    in /usr/share/doc (sometimes in /usr/share/doc/packages, sometimes
    /usr/share/doc/manual, sometimes /usr/share/doc/[app name])

    sometimes in

    on my system (which is probably different from yours) i found
    /usr/share/doc/packages/vlc/README which gives an online address to
    documentation here: http://www.videolan.org/doc/ (maybe that is what
    google found for you, i don't know.....and, i didn't go there to see
    if it is worthwhile or not)

    anyway, the point i wanted to make is that most documentation is
    either browsable (plain text or HTML) with Konqueror (or the web
    browser of your choice)..

    i long ago bookmarked /usr/share/doc/packages/ and when i need docs my
    first stop is there because the doc in there _should_ be the set
    closest to my installed app, but as google *turns* it will probably
    find docs from very old to very very new (with the variety of
    capabilities and how-to changing at a dizzying pace and therefore a
    doc with limited usefulness)..

    I've used /usr/share/doc/packages many a time, but thanks. Reminders
    are always good. I hit the VLC site early on, as well as their wiki but
    the docs on it don't keep up with the releases. Nice to have an active
    development team - guess they could use more technical writers though.

    Best...
