I'm a brand new Linux user and I was able to follow your directions perfectly.

Thank you, I was beginning to withdraw from listening to Howard Stern while playing in Linux.

Default beta gui

I'm working on a gui. Opening a terminal takes up a lot of screen space, adding a tinny gui solves that. That in mind the gui is designed around taking up as little space as possible.

If anyone wants to test it you can get the gui version at http://eli.criffield.net/sipie/xsipie. Eventaly the gui will be an option of the main
version, but for now its separate. (for now you had to start the gui in a terminal to see some of the output, thus not saving you the space of a terminal, but once its running you can background sipie and close the terminal)

And if you have version under 1166069711 Please upgrade, the playlists now come from my servers so we won't bogdown dogstarrradio.com.

I'm running ubuntu 6.10. When I exit the terminal after starting up the gui (it works great btw - is there a way to put in an option to sort the channel names in the drop down, or perhaps put in channel #s?) the program exits.

Well I must say IMO the gui is just a waste of space

For starters I don't see any place in the gui that shows what songs are playing. And I don't want to have a terminal and a gui open. I think it might be better if we can get a list of songs in the gui?

Also how do you test sipie without going over the 10 login limit per day?

Not yet, When i get a chance i'll make finding your favorite channels in the gui much easer.

Eventaly the gui will have the "Now Playing in it" . Sipie will always have the comand line version avalible, just set trygui = False in ~/.sipie/config if you don't like the gui.

As for testing without going over the 10 login per day limit, There is no way around it. I test by only testing parts of the code at a time and using local copies of the html pages, that way i don't really hit the 10 limit per day login, and i only have to actully connect to sirius.com once to make sure i did everything right, The other thing is if you don't ever close it, it never has to relogin. Just like there web based player.

You are missing the readline module in python. Its normal distributed with a base install of python. You'll have to find out how to install that module, Probably an rpm or .deb check with your distibutions rpms to see wich one you need.

Would you add an option to pipe the output?
I want to pipe the authenticated stream into faac to encode it into an m4a for later listening on an iPod.
Something like login and stream for 1 hour;
# sipie howardstern100 -t 3600 |faac -P -b 97 - -o /stern/06.12.14.m4a

Sirius doesn't allow "recording" with there online player so i'm not going to attept it with mine. I don't know if they would specificaly disallow it or not, but if they desided they didn't want my player to work anymore it would be easy for them to block it from any access at all. Now if you want to write your own player, it shouldn't be that hard to do whatever you want, just remember if they figure out your the guy recording howard and sharing it with the rest of the world, you may lose access.

I understand your position regarding your application.
However, I have never shared my recordings, nor do I intend to.
There is nothing wrong with recording something and listening to it later.
The recording of content for personal use is protected by law, it was made so by the VCR decision a long time ago.

I agree, you paid for the content, you should be able to do whatever you want with it short of giving it to someone who didn't pay for it or sell it. But the sipie is just going to give linux users an easy way to listen to sirius on linux, not extend in any way what the web player on windows does.

Hey, man, thank a TON for writing this app. It's killer. Much easier (and prettier) than ffox + mplayerplug-in.

It's a snap to get working on Gentoo, BTW. I gaveyou a plug, on the Gentoo forum: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p...6.html#3810036
