Using Vsound

REVIEW Debian Packages: realplay vsound

Vsound allows you to record the output of any standard OSS program (since they all use /dev/dsp for sound), and hence allows you to capture streaming audio. For example, you might usually listen to streaming audio using realplay. The simplest example is to start up realplay and visit a streaming audio channel you want to record. This will add it to the recent list of locations in the File menu. Then exit from realplay and start up vsound with realplay as the command to run:

  $ vsound --file=stream.ogg --timing realplay
Choose the most recent from the File list and vsound will capture the audio for you. You won't hear anything from your sound system until you exit from vsound since /dev/dsp is being captured by vsound.
