lmadl software automatically download shows from the live music archive.
lmadl is a script which automates the downloading of shows from the live music archive (archive.org/audio).
lmadl has 1 required argument which is the 5 digit index number of the show to download. This index number is taken from the URL for the "Details and Downloads" page for a particular show.
For example for the URL "http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details- db.php?id=12278" the argument would be 12278.
When shn2make is present on the system, after downloading lossless files (shn and flac), lmadl will automatically call shn2make to prepare the files for processing.
show version identification
do not run shn2make on downloaded lossless files.
When you specify a valid show index, lmadl will display show information, the song names and a list of available formats.
Choose a format and lmadl will begin downloading the files.
You can also choose nothing, or enter "q", in which case lmadl will exit.
When you choose a lossless format (shn or flac) lmadl will also create it's own text file named _LMA.txt which is formatted specifically to use with shn2make and shn2make (V2.12 or later) will automatically choose that file in preference to others. This eliminates the need to ever edit the official .txt/.nfo files to make them work with shn2make.
