How can i get BBC listen again files to my ipod?
you cant- they are Realplayer streaming files. I dont think there is an easy was of saving them as a standalone file.
If you're really interested you can do some stuff with mplayer to record them. It takes as long to record as the show takes to play as it just records the stream. As mentioned it goes against the terms of the service to do that.
The application you're looking for is called iRecordMusic. I use it all the time. Search for it on MacUpdate.com or Versiontracker.com (I hope it hasn't been removed as tyr2 suggested).
There are some good BBC podcasts but it is only a selection at the moment and they have to cut out any licensed material which is daft. I wish they'd just embrace the medium - I listen to a lot more radio now that I can control when I listen (mostly in my car via my iPod).
My fave listen again programmes are 'The Now Show', 'Just a Minute' and 'The Masterson Inheritance', all comedies on BBCr4 and BBC7.
Ooh that iRecordMusic looks good, will have to give it a go.
The app I was referring to was specifically designed for the BBC Listen Again service, it could pull down a list of shows from the site and list them for you, you could then just double click to convert to MP3. Not surprisingly the BBC weren't too chuffed.
Cant you use the free version of WireTap to record?
I used Audacity on my PC to record part of a Proms concert... but the Mac version doesnt have that feature
Another program you can use is Audio Hijack - it's what I use. It's not free, but if you're going to be using it all the time like I do, it's definitely worth the $$$.
Anyone know of any other ways to record streaming audio from the internet?
Besides my aforementioned Audio Hijack, I don't know of any others myself... As I said above though, AH works awesome.
Yes you can use WireTap to record. It's what I use.
The free version? Doesnt it save as a AIFF file?
Audio Hijack Pro is worth every cent - great robust software that's easy to use.
Audio Hijack Pro here as well; awesome app. Well worth purchasing.
Thanks for seconding (and thirding) my suggestion guys. Yep, Audio Hijack is an excellent app. Powerful and well worth the money.
Thanks for your help greatly appreciated!
No problem, that's what we're here for!
