I recently tried several freeware programs for recording streaming audio from my sound card to .mp3 or .wav files. I have so far found OpD2d simplest to use yet flexible.
I've encountered some problems with recording embedded audio in some websites (separate thread for that) but it records WinAmp streams perfectly, in either .mp3 or .wav
There is another way to download the mp3s at sites such as the one you referred to. I do this in Mozilla Firefox 1.0 but it may also work with other web browsers. Here's how I downloaded the Shane Douglas .mp3 file to my HD:
-go to the page where you found the audio stream link and right-click on the "play" button.
-select "Save link as..." and save the file to your hard drive. This is an .m3u file.
-go to where you saved the .m3u file and right-click on it.
-select "open with..." Open it with notepad.
-inside of notepad, you will find the URL for the actual .mp3 file. Paste this URL into your browser's address window, and you will be given the option to "save file as". You can now save the original .mp3 file, no need to rip or record.
Dear cnet friends,
I'm trying to rip streaming audio using WinAmp. Can anyone help me with this. I'm trying to rip streaming audio files from tnawrestling.com. If you go here (http://www.tnawrestling.com/superstars/main_stars.shtml) and click on a wrestler's name you'll see they have a listen button at the bottom to listen to a 20-second clip of the theme. I want those 20-second clips. I can find the address for the themes, like, for instance, Shane Douglas' theme web address is: http://www.tnawrestling.com/superstars/douglas/theme/Deep(ShaneDouglas).mp3, but I don't know how to take it off the website and I don't know how to rip the stream. Can anyone help or suggest free software. Thanks.
