Description:
Streamripper was started sometime back in early 2000. Streamripper started as a way to separate tracks via Shoutcasts title-streaming feature. This has now been expanded into a much more generic feature, where part of the program only tries to "hint" at where one track starts and another ends, thus allowing a mp3 decoding engine to scan for a silent mark, which is used to find an exact track separation. Streamripper is now part of the FreeBSD standard distribution, mentioned in the Linux MP3 HOWTO, known to compile on many platforms such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, BeOS, OS/2. This is not surprising as portability was a constant consideration during development. With the emergence of file sharing protocols such as Napster, Gnutella, and now Mojonation and Freenet, the average Internet user can download nearly any mp3 he wants in a matter of no time, but many times people dont know what they want. Streamripper allows you to download an entire station of music. Many of these mp3 radio stations only play certain genres, so you can now download an entire collection of goa/trance music, an entire collection of jazz, punk rock, whatever you want. Streamripper version 1.63.0 is released. New features include a configuration file for stored settings, ability to run the windows GUI application without running Winamp, and a new experimental silence detection method. Internal changes include a transition from wide characters to utf-8, a new dependency on glib, and separating the winamp plugin into a thin DLL and standalone EXE. Many bugs have been fixed, including crashes when reconnecting, checks for full disk conditions, percent-escaping of user names, parsing year and track from metadata, relative path in cue file, race conditions in relay server, id3 bug on 64-bit systems, and problems connecting to certain servers.
