This bash script records an hour's worth of Stadsradio den haag's broadcast stream. Copy it to a file, give it an appropriate name, make it executable and put it in a cron job.
If you want to record another stream, change the
STREAM variable accordingly
If you want to record for a shorter or longer period, change the value in the
sleep 60m line to something else.
By default, the recording is saved in WAV format as
tonka201104120200.wav] on your desktop; if you want to change any of this, look at the
#! /bin/bash DATE=$(date +%Y%m%d) TIME=$(date +%H%M) OUTFILE=tonka$DATE$TIME.wav # add time stamp to enable multiple recordings on the same day DUMPDIR=~/Desktop STREAM=mms://live-wm.residentie.net/denhaagfm92.0 cd $DUMPDIR mplayer $STREAM \ -ao pcm:fast:waveheader:file=$OUTFILE \ -nocache \ -vc dummy -vo null & sleep 60m kill $! # End the most recently backgrounded job = mplayer
