01-04-2004, 09:44 PM
I want to record a late night radio show that you can listen to online. Would i beable to save the show as a mp3 file.
I listen to the show with realone player.
Would i beable to get an audio cable that goes form my snd card "out" and plug it in to my "line-in" and save from line in.
I heard music match can save form line-in but would that be the best choice it this situation even works. What would be the best free or inexpensive software to record then cut up the show as mp3. thanks

I have no clue if that will work. Though I know for sure it's unnecessary. Double click on the sound icon in your system tray. Click "options" > "properties" > "recording" > "ok"
A new panel of audio ports will come up for recording options. Select the Stereo Mix, or Wave Out, or whatever it states in those options for output.
Now when you open your application to record, just click record when the radio show plays and it will automatically record whatever is being outputted to ur speakers.

If you have a recentish Soundblaster card there is an option called "what you hear" which will allow you to record anything that comes out of your speakers. But you still need a program to record the audio with.

thanks singularity2006 i got that working :) but saving wav takes to much space. do you know a program that saves streaming as mp3.

I'm not sure of anything that can save the stream directly, though there is probably something. Go to www.download.com and browse around. U might find something.
Anyhow, what happens when I do recordings with Acid Pro 4.0 is that it records whatever is being outputted as a wave file (uncompressed) and then I convert the project to mp3 after I'm done.... depending on the audio stream, ur probably gonna need a whole lot of free space to record it that way.

winamp has a plugin that does the same but to mp3. But winamp doenst support mms streaming audio.
