I want to record from Firefox streaming audio (Internet radio).
I have the music playing, then I startup "mhWaveEdit 1.4.9" and select play/record/low quality and I get an error : "error ope,ning ALSA device "default" for recording : Invalid argument".
I am on VL 5.8 Standard.
Can anyone give me a clue where to start ?
If the radiostream is a "Shoutcast" stream, you can use 'streamripper', there's a package in the repository. It should record streams to mp3. (I'm not quite sure how well it works). Can you give a link to the radio stream you want to record from so I can try recording it as well?
i.e. I can now record a wav from streaming web audio.
I don't really understand the way alsa 'devices' are set up, and I must say I was rather surprised to read you got it recording at all.
Under "edit/preferences/sound/settings/recording device" it was defaulting to "hw".
I tried changing this to "plug:dsnoop". It allows this, but then when I try to record it says
"this format is not supported by the input driver" (whatever format I choose).
mhwaveedit is sort of user picky with that. For me 16 bit @ 48000 Hz works with ALSA. If mhwaveedit keeps behaving badly, you can try audacity instead.
