Developer's link to his home page is no longer valid. The app is PPC only so far as I can tell. Like the icon...

version 1.2 fails because its Mplayer binary is out dated.

download the latest binary here: http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/mplayerosx/ffmpegXbinaries20060307.zip then replace the old one in file:///Applications/Radio2ipod.app/Contents/Resources/bin/mplayer

works fine again though you might experience real time audio drop out the final file is complete and playable.

This is one of the few apps worthy of a permanent place in my dock. I use it every day to record a variety of BBC radio shows and it works flawlessly 99% of the time. As cliched as it is to say it does exactly what it promises... it does exactly what it promises. Excellent work!

I have never written a review before, but felt I should. What a great little app. works sweetly on 10.4.6, version 1.01.

P.S A timer for live shows would be a cool addition, but that said it makes me happy as it is.

The problems appeared to stem from a library mismatch in Panther. I am looking into getting a backwardly compatible - but for now this application is TIGER only.

Same problem here: does nothing. I am using 10.4.6 with J2SE 1.5_06. I tried with an audio and a video stream from NASA (http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html?skipIntro=1). I'll post the Console message in a reply to make this post cleaner.

BTW, "Blah blah info" in the Get Info version message is a little weird...

DESMOSCOLEX had trouble on 20 Jul 2007
I was using radio2ipod to download bbc radio streams. All was going well with my $12 802.11b router until I got the airport extreme basestation and now I can't get them to work. I can listen to the streams but no more downloading. If I connect the powerbook directly to the modem all works fine so it must be an issue with the basestation (which happens whether I am connecting wirelessly or wired). Any suggestions?

Just some odd behaviour I thought you might appreciate me reporting...

Choosing not to add recordings to iTunes has no effect - Radio2ipod has a stab at it either way.

The entries that automatically appear in iTunes, however, are unusable because it claims not to be able to locate the original files even though they haven't been moved from the desktop. To play them back or move them to your iPod you have to manually import them and delete the original entry from the library.

Just upgraded to the latest version and noticed that it plays what it's recording out loud making it impossible to listen to other audio at the same time.

I can't seem to find a way to mute the app independent of other system sounds. Any help would be much appreciated.

This would be a very nice application, if I could get it to work.

So far I have not found a single link on the BBC Radio website that actually does anything other that briefly appear in "Stream Recorder's" window, and then disappear with nothing happening in iTunes, and no internet activity.

Developer David Griffiths, please help.

It's not impossible that there is something wrong with my system. Lately I've been getting some weird problems with Applescript applications.

Oh dear - looks like it is still at version one-dot-oh-my-god it isn't working :-) Could you let me know what version of OS X you are running and an example of a URL that didn't work?

I particularly want to download the programme

"Programme 1: Lupus, the Misunderstood Epidemic"

on the page

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/science/ourlivesinourhands.shtml

(The link is entitled

"Listen again to Programme 1")

I have just tried it with the new bug-fixed version (now uploaded to MacUpdate) and it seemed to work fine. That said - I am running Tiger. Could you try it again?

Still no luck. I even tried restarting my computer just in case that might help - it didn't. I tried "Stream Recorder 1.01". I got the following (different result from before) in console.log:
