How to keep those iFestival concerts

by Volker Weber

Apple is having another month of free concerts in London. iTunes Festival. You can watch the concerts through iTunes and iDevices (including Apple TV), live and later. Eventually they will disappear. But since this is a video on demand stream, you can save also save those files to local disk. This is no rocket science, but also a lot of work unless you have Max Bäumle's handy tool. It watches your network interface, while iTunes starts playing the concert. Once it has grabbed the beginning of that transmission, you can stop iTunes and let iFestivalDownloader save the file for you. en0 is your wired connection, en1 your Wifi. The software is for educational purposes only and available as open source. Once you have the MPEG2 transport stream on file, you may want to convert it to an MPEG4 stream with Handbrake.

Need somebody to write an iOS app? Check out what Max can do for you.

Wie startet man das Programm denn? Auf Github sehe ich innerhalb des Pakets keine ausführbare Datei. Muss ich mir da mit Xcode noch etwas zusammen basteln?

Ja. XCode runterladen (AppStore) und dann dort Run. Danach gibt es eine .app die ausfuehrbar ist.
War auch fuer mich das erste Mal :) Aber funktioniert richtig gut.

@Bernd Schuster: Danke! Xcode hatte ich schon (benötige FileMerge ab und an), aber hatte sonst noch nichts damit gemacht.

Freut mich - ich hatte aus dem Vorjahresartikel von Volker den Hinweis auf XCode gefunden und danach installiert und etwas herumprobiert - und ploetzlich war es compiliert :)
