Time-Shifting For The iPod

timothy posted more than 10 years ago | from the tivo-needs-no-separate-pc dept.

Media (Apple) 173

depechemodem writes "This story at ExtremeiPod talks about a new piece of software from Adam Curry called iPodder (now at Sourceforge) which uses RSS feeds with MP3 enclosures to stream audio to iTunes. The best part is that those streams can be saved as clips automatically on to your iPod or other MP3 player for later listening making this the first portable time-shifted Internet audio application. The code is alse being ported to Windows."

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

It downloads Internet Radio streams and lets you play them back as MP3s later. Just like Tivo does for TV (allowing you to skip commercials with a slider bar) you can now do that with your favorite MP3 player (including the ever so popularly advertised iPod).

GoRK (10018) | more than 10 years ago | (#10257353)

iPod by itself won't bypass the queue unless it also has the keywords 'Linux' or 'RSS' in it. Indeed this is some seriously lackluster stuff. It downloads a list of files and adds them to itunes. Presumably it will also sync it over to the iPod as well. An m3u could do the same thing if iTunes would support saving the URL. Still, sometimes simple apps like this can be among the most useful ones. At least they're not charging you $10 for it like most excessively tiny mac utilities.

Colazar (707548) | more than 10 years ago | (#10258076)

Just a guess, but:

Morning Edition begins broadcasting at ~5AM Pacific time, and repeats its programming several times during its timeslot. (At least here in Seattle.)

Many people's morning commute does not involve a car. The radio reception I got on the bus was always really crappy, so I've given up listening to a lot of radio. This might be a solution.

And won't the NMPA and RIAA start to female-dog about it being a copyright infringement tool? No, sharing your own songs may not be a substantial non-infringing use under Betamax because what you call "your own songs" could likely be either covers or subconscious infringements.

Don't forget hymn [hymn-project.org] . It allows you to convert protected AAC files that you purchase through the iTunes Music Store to unprotected AAC files that can be played back on any device, or with any piece of software, that supports AAC.

Just be sure to backup the original protected AAC file somewhere just in case. Oh and I wouldn't be sharing these unprotected files on any P2P service. It does remove the DRM, but it doesn't remove certain tags within the file (called atoms) that can uniquely identify the user who purchased it. There are other pieces of software available that can remove those, but I'm not going to post any links.

Many current switchers, according to chatter heard in Apple's Support Forums, have switched because of their experience with the iPod. Whether it was from walking into an Apple Store to buy an iPod and getting a chance to actually *use* a Mac, or seeing how much thought was put into the iPod, from how the scroll wheel accelerates to how rugged the design is to the neat way the backlight fades on and off.

If iTMS is a loss-leader for the iPod, then the iPod is a leader for Macs. I'm all for Apple making a headless eMac. But until they do the eMac, which is itself an incredibly capable machine for its price, will probably be the first Mac many people own.

Pitch control and cue points. Add those two features, and apple will find a large market of DJs that will buy them. Hell, I'd put off upgrading my mixer if Apple added those two features. I'd have a good portable music player for the bus and whatnot, and a small device I can hook up to my mixer so I can use digital music files, stuff I rip off CD or my own productions that I can't afford to press to vinyl in my sets. And it would open up a large amount of music, especially futurepop, that is disgustingly difficult to find in any quantity on vinyl.

What about Replay Radio (5, Informative)

chrisspurgeon (514765) | more than 10 years ago | (#10257499)

Not taking anything away from iPodder, but I've been using a great little app called Replay Radio for a year or so to grab my favorite web radio programs and save them as MP3s, which I then dump into my iPod. Product details here [replay-radio.com]

I tired using Replay Radio but it didn't want to work on a machine that I only access using Remote Desktop. Instead I ended up using Total Recorder. Unlike Replay, TR captures the stream before it goes in to the audio drivers thereby skipping the whole Remote Desktop issue. It uses it's own driver to decode the stream and then it uses whatever encoding you have loaded to save the file. It will also neatly build the ID3 tags as well. At the end of the weekend I have a nice collection of NPR programming to load on to my little white buddy and face the Monday morning commute.

Dude, if you want a free iPod, just send me your bank account number and SSN. When I forward it my buddy the Prime Minister of Nigeria, he'll send you more than enough money to cover the cost of an iPod.

Time-shifting? (3, Funny)

When I first read that I got ideas of a Hitchhiker's Guide show. Who needs a towel anymore if you have an iPod!

HarveyBirdman (627248) | more than 10 years ago | (#10257606)

So "time-shifting" with my iPod does not imply time travel?

Shit.

I thought I could just hit the button and turn the volume control to skip back a few minutes.

Yes.. TimeShifting! (5, Funny)

Another fricking buzzword. Gotta love 'em.

My website is now rendering multi tiered aggregate content to strategize user-centric metrics while orchestrating scalable synergies utilizing virtual timeshifted content.

Somebody buy me..
Please?

What the hell is this? I've been using Audio Hijack Pro [rogueamoeba.com] to time-shift radio programs for what, 2 years now? How is this /.-worthy? Yet another audio recording app. Oh, but it's Adam Curry - well in that case, post it right away!

Newsflash - RMS takes world's first crap! Read it only on /.

I do this already with MythTV (1)

ripnet (541583) | more than 10 years ago | (#10257709)

I have MythTV installed, with a WinTV Nova-T card (digital TV card) which allows me to schedule it to record radio straight from UK's freeview service. I then have a php script which re-encodes it using Lame into an archive directory, which I rsync each morning to my iRiver mp3 player...
