Apologies for the delay; a buddy dropped by for awhile. My last post fetched some non-NPR site that I figure was the "adv" that helps pay for the songs/talk space and bandwitdh. I finally used "mplayer rtsp://foobar/..../" and it loooked as though the entire don would take 20-30 minutes to download. Not a problem; this ex-hacker turnd singer (V. Teng) has a voice worth waiting for. My IDSL like is 144k... pretty slow. I'll test with the -dumpaudio -dumpfile "xyz" and see what happens. gary Rats. Here's what happened whn I added the two switches to mplayer. Anybody know why the streamm bmbed out?? pm 17:15 <tao>  sh -x YY1.sh + mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile /tmp/vT1 rtsp://real.npr.org:80/real.npr.na-central/news.db.rm?v1st=8AB1883F11EB3EE3&mt=4 MPlayer 1.0pre7try2-3.4.2 (C) 2000-2005 MPlayer Team CPU: Intel Celeron 2/Pentium III Coppermine,Geyserville (Family: 6, Stepping: 6) Detected cache-line size is 32 bytes CPUflags: MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 0 3DNow2: 0 SSE: 1 SSE2: 0 Compiled with runtime CPU detection - WARNING - this is not optimal!
