Tips for Recording Shows
Recording your radio show is actually a fairly simple process. There are a few ways to get it done, and one of the easiest methods is to use a little application called StreamRipper.
StreamRipper is a free, multi-platform program, meaning its available for both Mac and Windows computers (and Linux, too, if you’re into that). It’s slightly different for each platform, so this tutorial will cover each version separately.
Step #1 – Installing
Once you have it open, look to the bottom. It should look like this:
In the box at the bottom, enter webcasting.wamh.amherst.edu:8002. This is WAMH’s webstream address. Now click “ADD” This will start the recording. After a few moments of buffering, it the status column should say “Ripping Stream.” That’s pretty much the gist of it.
StreamRipper will store the ripped stream wherever you set it. The default is the application’s own directory, but you can change it by going to View>Options.
StreamRipper is known as xStreamRipper on OSX. Get it here.
It works almost identically to its Windows counterpart, save for the interface.
To start, click the “Add stream button” , which is the second button from the top. Now, enter webcasting.wamh.amherst.edu:8002 into the URL column. This is WAMH’s webstream address. (Another option here is to drag the file from iTunes and drop it into the window.)
Before you begin recording, click the “Download button. The page should look like this:
To record, click the button with the two cogs. This begins the ripping.
