I pay for a service called Rdio which is excellent, but the proprietary interface is too much to handle. No Genius, no shuffling, etc. However, it streams to Shairport4w easily. Great sound quality and great album art.
You can set the output to either your speakers or the LAME MP3 encoder – except it only streams the entire session, without breaking the songs apart. It actually serves up a notification with beautiful album art and ID3 tag info each time a new song is streamed.
Question: How to recognize when there’s a new song, cut the LAME stream and begin a new one?
Purpose: Recording songs into discrete individual MP3s
Question: How to gather that beautiful album art, ID3 info, and attach it to the LAME arguments.
Purpose : Having files copied ‘verbatim’ from Rdio -> iTunes
Thought: Capture what’s in those notifications and attach it into ID3! LAME can handle all of it
I am very excited about this idea and think that it’s quite feasible. Could someone help out? I can only figure things out logically but I don’t code. :(
