Ok, I understand that I need to modify the parse_rules.txt file but I can't figure out what it needs to say. I am getting info like this:
TRACK 02 AUDIO
TITLE "Time: 11:19AM Artist: Bobby Charles Song: 'See You Later Alligator' Album: 45"
PERFORMER "Kxxx xx.x FM"
INDEX 01 00:06:00
What rule do i need to use to parse this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The example given in the parse_rules.txt doesn't make any sense to me at all.
Looks like good metadata. You can get the album data too. Try this:
m/.*Artist: (.*) Song: \'(.*)\' Album: (.*) -.*/A1T2C3
[You probably need to modify the above, but hopefully this gets you started. Feel free to post again as needed.]
thank you so much for replying. that didn't work. I know I have it set up correctly to read the parse_rules file because i can type in gibberish and it causes me to get an error.
I'm still stumped. Is there some sort of tutorial somewhere? Am I just stupid? I understand that you have matched the format of the metadata, but how does that translate into filling out the correct blanks in the cue file? I don't understand the syntax. I'd like to understand the process if possible. Not having any luck so far.
It's frustrating because i rip another stream and that one comes out perfectly. I think that this station intentionally sends metadata like this to cause problems. And I just rip this stream for time shifting purposes. I even have a batch file that deletes the previous file before it starts recording. ok, rant over.
There is no tutorial or documentation. It's better to think of it as a kind of torture test.
What is the URL?
well, working on it so far has been like having my finger nails pulled off.
not that i am complaining. i have been using streamripper for a couple years now and couldn't imagine life without it. so, thanks again for your help, greg.
Sorry for the delay. Try this rule. It works for me.
please, I can not figure out which line must be in parse rules if I have :
Stream link : wltw-fm.akacast.akamaistream.net/7/291/19974/v1/auth.akacast.akamaistream.net/wltw-fm
Stream info on Current title: Billy Joel - text="She's Got A Way" song_spot="M" MediaBaseId="1092797" itunesTrackId="0" amgTrackId="0" amgArtistId="0" TAID="4684" TPID="1797096" cartcutId="0700513001"
I need only a order number + artist and title : 0001 Artist - Title.ext
What is correct rule for the "Artist - Title - Album" pattern? Those examples included in original txt don't really make any sense to me without proper synthax tutorial.. %(
