Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: ThePhin on Feb 02, '05 12:23:56AM

I tried this.

- Installed RealPlayer10.
- grabbed latest*.zip and installed mplayer and mencoder into /usr/local/bin
- created the link to the RealPlayer codec dir, and for good measure, created a directory of links to the individual bundles in /usr/local/lib/mplayer

Doesn't do what is described:

<code>

Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: bedouin on Feb 02, '05 01:08:04AM

This hint isn't for streaming audio, which is what you're trying to capture. If you want to capture streaming audio to WAV issue the following command:

mplayer -playlist file.ram -ao pcm -aofile file.wav -vc dummy -vo null

This, of course, won't convert the stream to MP3, nor add ID3 tags.

When you're done capturing the stream (if it is 24 hour), press enter and it should stop, otherwise I'm assuming it will stop by itself. If you add the "-playlist" toggle to the script I provided, it would probably work fine for .RAM (streaming) files as well.

Here are the codecs that came with RealPlayer10:

I'll try Googling for racook tomorrow. Thanks.

Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: bedouin on Feb 02, '05 02:11:36AM

Two things to verify. First, make sure you downloaded the files from the Sourceforge link entitled "last mencoder & mplayer binaries." I wrote this is in the original submission but I guess the editor thought it was a mistake and changed it to "newest" or something to that effect.

Second thing, make sure you linked the codecs exactly as described. Aliases created with Finder DO NOT work. It appears you've done something awkward at the linking stage. If you can't figure it out, copy the files to the ffmpegX directory. If you haven't done anything wrong with linking, the version of mplayer you're using is looking for the files in another place; use the newest version.

Lastly, I was able to capture the stream in question (Family Physics) to WAV with no problem. I didn't complete the entire file, but it looked something like this . . .

Just as a precaution I checked my hint from beginning to end on another machine without LAME, mplayer, or any other stuff installed. I didn't encounter any problems.

Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: ThePhin on Feb 02, '05 10:49:47AM

Okay, I'm running Mac OS X 10.3.7. I have Real Player 10.0.0 (v325).

I went to the mplayer Sourceforge link you supplied, and followed the link labelled "Last Mencoder&Mplayer binary". I was offered multiple choices for a download, and took ffmpegxbinaries.sit. This yielded a folder, binaries_for_ffmpegX. Then I Unix cp'ed 'em:

<code>

[megumi:/usr/local/bin] donaldwa% ls -l mencoder mplayer

As for the link to the Real Player codec support:

The stream is playable by RealPlayer (I checked right after the above run).

I'll try deleting the symbolic link and doing a Unix 'cp -R' of the bundles into a genuine /Library/Application Support/ffmpegx/reallib/ directory this evening.

Thanks for all the help.

I too am trying to convert a stream to .wav, then to .mp3, in this case a segment of a Prairie Home Companion show. I got the newest binaries I could find, in this case Intel builds, and used the command for streams given in this thread, and it seemed to work perfectly:

And in fact the file, rope.wav, was created. However, it converted only a little 33-second snip of the show segment (which is around a half-hour, I think) that I was trying to convert, and I'm not even sure what it created was from the right segment of the show. as you can see, at the end of the rtsp link, there's a timecode reference,
031101_phc.rm?start=00:00:47:40.0&end=00:01:18:56.0.
I believe that's the part that's messing up. Anyone have any words of wisdom for me? Thanks in advance.

Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: RiotNrrrd on Feb 02, '05 03:33:51AM
If you don't have a .ram file, as long as you can get at the original stream URL (via View Source or similar), you can do

mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile [filename] rtsp://host.do.main/full/url

to dump live RealAudio streams to disk to create your own .rm files that you can then massage into MP3's.

As for this mess:

author=`mplayer "$1" -vo null -ss 10:00:00 | grep author | sed -e 's/.*:\s*\(.*\)/\1/'`
title=`mplayer "$1" -vo null -ss 10:00:00 | grep name | sed -e 's/.*:\s*\(.*\)/\1/'`


How about this instead?

IFS=";" title_author=`mplayer "$1" -quiet -vo null -ss 10:00:00 2>&1 | awk -F: 'BEGIN { ORS = ";" } ; $1 ~ /name|author/ { print $2 }'`
title=${title_author[0])
author=${title_author[1])


A little more legible to the uninitiated, perhaps ...

(And you get a free "Oh I didn't know awk was that cool!" and "Fun with BASH arrays" lesson out of it! ;-) )

I do this having made the following preparations:
  • Real Player 10 installed
  • symbolic link to codecs in RP10 created at /Library/Application\ Support/ffmpegX/reallib
  • mplayer from ffmpegXbinaries230105.zip
Doing the same with some ram-files from amazon.de (containing besides the pnm-url another url of type rtsp) everthing works (almost...) as expected.

Not sure if you tried this - but if you enter that URL in RealPlayer it asks to update to the Dolby 3 plugin. I did so, thinking that would resolve problem with mplayer - but it does not. Sorry.

Yes, I entered the URL in Real Player. A download of some plug-in started (I don't remember, whether it was Dolb 3) and then it played.
And, yes, it didn't make mplayer play it.

update prebindings & reboot
Authored by: manos on Jul 09, '05 10:07:47PM

I had this problem until I updated the pre-bindings (I used YASU to do this step)...

I downloaded the latest Mac OS X build from http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/index.html (note, they are taking some heat on patenting in the EU) (so you might want to download the source for your archives, too) ;-)

I thieved the mplayer.app from the package contents in the resource section of the package contents to the mplayer os x.app and stuck it in /usr/bin/local (they build it with static libraries, so all you need is the .app)...

put the links to the Real Player helix dna codecs (from the Real 10) in the ~/library/apllication support/... (see above) folder...

ran it and got those errors, so I ran YASU to update prebindings, restarted and it worked like a charm...
