icecream - download icecast and shoutcast streams, redirecting all fetched content to
stdout and/or to disk at the same time


icecream [OPTIONS] URL [URL..]


icecream is a lightweight, non-interactive, stream download utility. It connects to
icecast and shoutcast servers or direct stream URLs, and redirects all fetched content to
stdout and/or to media files on your disk.

Listen to the stream piping the output to a stdin-capable media player. Save the stream
to a named file or split it into different tracks. It is possible to redirect the stream
and save it to disk at the same time.

icecream is able to parse pls and m3u playlists, and to download mp3 and ogg direct stream
URLs. If the stream is anonymous it will be saved as 'stream-time.mp3', where time is
actual timestamp.
