  1. A Prairie Home Companion
    Weekly radio show with Garrison Keillor that has been broadcast for past 40 years.

    Note: You can listen to old shows on demand streaming audio by going to:
    http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/programs/

    If you want to download a show (like to put on your mp3 player), you can use the following url:
    http://167.88.156.221/phc/2014/06/28/phc_20140628_128.mp3
    This will download the June 28, 2014 show.

    To download other show dates, go to:
    http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/programs/

    and get the exact date for the show that you want, then
    modify the url (use above url ending in mp3 as pattern) in 2 places as shown in the following example. For example, to download the April 5 show (2014/04/05),
    use the following url:
    http://167.88.156.221/phc/2014/04/05/phc_20140405_128.mp3
    So you can use the following url as a pattern to download any show ( replace x with show date in proper format as shown in above examples.
    http://167.88.156.221/phc/xxxx/xx/xx/phc_xxxxxxxx_128.mp3

    Note:
    Previous URL (http://50.31.167.247/phc/xxxx/xx/xx/phc_xxxxxxxx_128.mp3) doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Thank you so much--been trying various time-consuming methods and streaming audio recorders, etc., for several years now. Time to download before he retires...

  3. I tried the url recommended for download, but the only dates it work with are the ones given as examples. When I put another date it does not work.

  4. Well, things always change.
    You can try this different one which seems to work now:
    http://167.88.156.221/phc/xxxx/xx/xx/phc_xxxxxxxx_128.mp3
    So for example if you want to download April 16, 2016 use the following:
    http://167.88.156.221/phc/2016/04/16/phc_20160416_128.mp3
    Or for example if you want to download March 5, 2016 use the following:
    http://167.88.156.221/phc/2016/03/05/phc_20160305_128.mp3
    But I think Prairie Home Companion knows their days are soon over, and now they just let you download the show directly from their website. I am using Foxfire 25.0 and I now get this message when I go to their website - they say my browser/computer is too old and just click to download the show (see screenshot red circle).

  6. How far back does that go...I tried a show from 1999 and it didn't work.
    It would take someone from Vermont to ask that kind of question.
    I'll give a description of how to download older shows, but it seems to take several hours to download one 2 hour show. Maybe someone here can pipe in with a faster easier method. Example given is for October 25, 1997 show.
    First download and install Orbit which you can get here:
    http://files.videohelp.com/u/61125/OrbitDownloaderSetup242.exe
    Then go to Prairie Home Companion website and click on "Listen to the whole show" (maybe right click) to download the
    25_phc
    (see screenshot)
    Open this file in Notepad and you should see this:
    http://www.publicradio.org/tools/media/player/start/00:00:00:14.0/end/00:02:00:18.0/ph...10/25_phc.smil
    Put the above in Firefox and download the
    25_phc.smil
    Open that file in Notepad and look through you should find this (starts with rtsp and ends in rm):
    rtsp://mprrm.publicradio.org/5559/phc/1997/10/25_phc.rm
    Start Orbit, open main screen from taskbar and enter above rtsp (file>enter new url to download).
    (see screenshot)
    It should start downloading and be in C:\Downloads

  8. aazerty:
    1) Does it it take 2 hours to download via ffmpeg?
    2) When using ffmpeg, is there a way just to download the rm stream (not convert to mp3)?
    3) If so, what is the complete code to do that for the above example?
    4) Also, if I use ffmpeg to convert to mp3 (like the example you gave), what additional software do I need to get ffmpeg to convert to mp3?
    5) How do I install that software into ffmpeg?

        comment         : Minnesota Public Radio Minnesota Public Radio,2003
      Duration: 02:00:20.24, start: 0.023000, bitrate: N/A
        Stream #0:0: Audio: cook (cook / 0x6B6F6F63), 22050 Hz, mono, fltp, 20 kb/s

    1) Does it it take 2 hours to download via ffmpeg?
    _ Duration 2H for the video . Not for the download , witch can be different !

    2) Audio: cook <= I don't know witch codec to be used .
    That's why I choosed 'libmp3lame' as it is a standard .

    3) No codec more , it is inclued in ffmpeg

    4) additional software , no one

    5) Nothing

    Cheers .
