Pydar is a digital audio recorder providing scheduled recording of radio programs. It provides scheduling recording of radio programmes. Pydar can compress programmes on the fly into either Ogg Vorbis or Ogg Speex formats as well as recording to uncompressed Microsoft WAV files. Pydar is free software licensed under the GNU General Public License.
Pydar will run only on GNU/Linux or similar operating systems which have the Linux binary interface exactly (pydar directly uses the kernel interface to tune the radio.
Pydar requires Python >= 2.2 (probably), PyGTK >= 2.0.0, Libglade >= 2.0.0 to run together with at and sox to schedule recordings. Pydar does not require any GNOME specific libraries but does follow the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines (please report deviations from the HIG as bugs).
Users running Redhat GNU/Linux 9.0 must upgrade PyGTK before pydar will function correctly. The RPMs provided in Fedora Core (pygtk2, pygtk2-devel, pygtk2-libglade) have been tested and are known to work.
