Well obviously it would use ffmpeg if you set it up. Media Tomb uses anything if you set it up to do so rolleyes.gif. However in the default config (on Arch at least), MT uses VLC for transcoding.

Well if you want to take it there fine, I wasn't arguing I was just stating my side/opinion. But if you really want me to be a dick, that's cool. Damn boy, you can't actually have any good discussion with you without you believing it's an argument, you get raised that way? I'm aware VLC can run headless, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered typing cvlc would I? That's just pretty redundant of you to even respond to that isn't it? I mean seriously, you even QUOTED that line. Don't respond if the quote has the same answer your responding too, it doesn't make you look any better. I'm not the only dick, and at least I do it honestly. So get off your high horse and become a regular person like the rest of us because it's pretty nice down here.

Have you never thought that the reason I lose my patience with you is because you're an arrogant tosser who argues about anything in every bloody thread? Then you come in here and launch into a page of mindless drivel about how you prefer mplayer to VLC for some arbitrary reason that nobody give a **** about.

The only reason I suggested VLC on Windows was because there was a (slim) chance he might already have it installed. I wasn't aware such a comment warranted this much scrutiny you've since it clearly does, I'll let you address this thread on your own.

Ok so yeah guys. I'm lost between all that. For now things are on hold for automation on my end at least as I don't have something setup with automation.

My thinking is for a nub like me the easiest solution is to use AutoHotKey action recorder in Windows to record an automated task, then either via Task Scheduler + Batch or just AHK or however I can get it working the way I want, will be a solution via Windows instead of Linux.

I had dreams of automating a bunch of things and that was my intention - use a bunch of VM's to do 1-4 automated tasks (like recording audio, as well as other things) - but anyways... biggrin.gif

No need for bickering. I ended up like a straight Debian build better than Mint anyways and I prefer XFCE over KDE/GNOME. biggrin.gif

So... until I have more time to put it all in motion and play around with what I want done I'm just sourcing ideas and automation ideas. thumb.gif

I'm sorry, next time I'll just go out and say I'm biased off the bat. Though most advice is slanted any ways but I just wanted to make that clear. If you thought the poster might have it installed you should say something about it instead of leaving it out. It's hard for us to guess intentions unless they are made known, I was just trying to state I personally see mplayer as a more headless solution but there is a standalone version of vlc that would work too.

I know I'm an arrogant prick, I've made it known in many threads and I continue to make it known. I'm not here to be a nice guy, I'm not here to make friends. I'm here to give advice and try and discuss about crap. I don't get personal or mean unless somebody else does but my responses are generally abrasive. Mainly because I don't care to write nice and cosy replies, I'm not here to be all hugs. I'm sorry if you take that as an argument mentality, if you were on any debate team you'd get the same attitude. Oh well, that's your personal attitude issue not mine. Whatev though, take my replies however you want.

If you went linux you could set up jobs on a time basis, I don't know how that would work in windows but I'd use cron in linux. Would go every day at X time, then your script could run for a set duration and be done. Regardless of how you record, that would be the basis of doing a time based record every day.

[edit] What page are you using to grab the audio? A specific url?

[example of what I'm doing with youtube for fun]
Code:
#!/bin/bash
i="_URL"
url=$(youtube-dl -gf 34 --cookies .yt-cookie.txt $i) 
mplayer2 -nocache -fs $url -vo null -ao pcm:file=output.wav
ffmpeg -i output.wav -ab 192000 output.mp3
rm output.wav

I've yet to go into making it more automatic and doing file names based off a variable. I first had to figure some things out, mplayer was giving me trouble. mplayer/mplayer2 are interchangeable as well as that line should work if you modify it to be player specific. Youtube-dl is a nice script that's included in some linux repos but is also available via download (somewhere). I'm just doing this for some fun, so the script probably won't change beyond that as a proof of concept. It's a neat idea though, I'm sure you could figure out the youtube-dl script to modify it for other URLs as well.
