Recording Internet Radio Streams

  ade.h 16:47 02 Oct 2005

I know that software is available to record Shoutcast output, but is there any way of capturing BBC broadcasts, which are in Real Audio format?

I use Jet Audio to listen to them, but it doesn't cache the entire stream in the way that Windows Media Player does with wma streams (so that you can use File, Save As).

Is there any software that can save the streams?

Audacity: Can Audacity record RealAudio or other streaming audio?
"With most Windows and Linux audio devices, it is possible to record whatever sound the computer is currently playing, including internet radio streams.

In the drop-down menu on Audacity's mixer toolbar, choose “Wave Out” or “Stereo Mix” as the input source. (The exact name may be different, depending on your computer's sound drivers.) When you press the Record button, Audacity will capture whatever sound is playing on your computer's speakers.

If this doesn't work on your computer, you can instead use a cable to connect your computer's “Line Out” (speaker) port to its “Line In” port, and use Audacity to record from Line In."

Thankyou DS; much appreciated. I'll give Audacity a try. I had read about the cable method in PCW but my soundcard only has one output and no inputs.

I've installed and used Audacity. After a bit of playing around, I managed to get it to display a signal from the stream that Jet Audio was playing. However, after saving the file and trying to play it back, nothing happens in the display and there is no sound.

Any ideas what I may be doing wrong?

Many thanks for any help given.

Doh! Figured it out now. Select All, Export As.
