If I have streaming audio/video files that are viewed through winamp, how could I save the stream? It can't be viewed in a browser.
Streamripper records shoutcast-compatible streams. For shoutcast style streams it finds the "meta data" or track separation data, and uses that as a marker for where the track should be separated.
Another method to save shoutcast streams is to use LAME plugin for Winamp. Just follow the instructions on this page to achieve that.
I created an application for this, you can take a look at the demo: http://www.streamsink.com.
- capture multiple (hundreds) streams at once
- capture reliably 24/7
- capture mp3, aacplus, wma (has wmv capturing but it's not relevant to this question)
And so on...
