Hi

Maybe this is old news, but I just read that the new "iTunes-killer" Spotify (http://www.spotify.com/en/ )
uses Ogg Vorbis (q5, ~160 kb/s) for their streaming service.

(reference: http://getsatisfaction.com/spotify/topics/soundquality )

Nice to see that they're using an open source encoder! smile.gif

regards
Magnus

First say thanks for showing me spotify, really nice music collection.
Now comes my question. I found a web page http://www.spotifyripping.com/?page_id=11 which states that ripping music from spotify is legal but if you do it you are breaking the end user agreement. I would like to know if it is true that is legal rip from spotify.

One of the lovely gray-zones that noone really knows anything about. I little digging with google turned up "SpotSave" which seems even nicer, as it rips the original stream.

However I will only recommend this for making the music portable, which is not possible with Spotify yet. Artists still need the royalties from your playcount wink.gif

A spotify-plugin for ones favorite mediaplayer would be really nice though.

Can't wait for a HD-AAC encoder :P

Thanks, spotsave seems really nice. However I wasn't able to find a spotsave working version on the net (or maybe it works but it's my fault).
Have you successfully tested it? if so please tell me where can i find a working version.
Thanks in advance.

SpotSave is now unusable as Spotify has effectively blocked it. You can use something like Replay Music or even Audacity to record your Spotify streams. Replay Music will separately record individual tracks automatically.

Thanks for the info, but I would like something that records before decoding the ogg file.
I was overviewing despotify code and i think it's possible to dump the stream before decoding, adding a few lines to /src/clients/gateway/gw-stream.c to write plaintext to a file.
Since I'm not a good coder and I can't test it without a premium account, I'm not sure if it is possible or if I'm wrong. I would appreciate if anyone can confirm it or give a proper solution.
Thanks in advance
