I would like to download the radio station playlists available for free (LQ) by www.di.fm and www.sky.fm, because they offer no web/desktop app! But I don't always use my iPhone or Android Tablet and their website navigation is way too cumbersome.

Is there a quick way to download all their stations *.pls? I want to add them to my internet radio playlist (foobar). The only solution I found is this "hack", but I don't even understand what it says, i.e. where I place those scripts so that they do what they are intended to do.

I would highly appreciate your help in using the above scripts or find another way. Maybe someone of you already made himself the work and can upload the playlist file here. (It doesn't matter for me if sky.fm and di.fm are separated or in one file.)

DI.fm allows you to download as .pls.

As for Sky.fm, you will have to manually download the files by entering this URL: listen.sky.fm/public3/STATIONNAME.pls For example: listen.sky.fm/public3/dreamscapes.pls

My intention was to indeed download all playlists at once and without having to figure out the station name. So while this helps if I am willing to invest the time, it isn't what I am looking for. You can call me lazy. –  grunwald2.0 May 17 '12 at 11:21

I compiled all the stations here :

  1. Save this in a .pls file.
  2. Edit with notepad to replace the text YOUR_KEY by your premium key or delete it if you are not premium.
  3. Open the pls file in your favorite player :)

You can download all the .pls files. After that you open this files in a text editor like notepad++. You´ll discover the true url for the station. Add these url in a streaming audio grabber. You´ll download in real time as the music plays. I recomend StremRipper for winamp (you really don´t need winamp to use it) Open the program, press rightclick and paste the true url from the station like inside the PLS files (listen.sky.fm/public3/STATIONNAME.pls)

Dont forget to configure the output folder.

I asked about how to do that for all stations at once! I know myself that I can download individual stations and I already did that. I also don't need all the technical hoho you described: vlc and others can automatically merge them, so that's no problem too. So that's why I downvoted your answer, you didn't even read my question. The problem is the di.fm/sky.fm websites themselves, that force me to do 5-x clicks to download the respective station, multiply this by 30 and I am busy half an evening just clicking around on di.fm. –  grunwald2.0 Oct 27 '12 at 11:05
