recording using windows media player

  pprbh 20:22 27 Nov 2005


i was wondering whether anyone could tell me how to record either audio or video streams using windows media player (or other software) that i could keep on my hard drive and perhaps transfer to disk (either wav/mp3 etc). Is there software with a record button or something? Any help would be appreciated.

These files.. Have you tried Right Clicking the link and Selecting SAVE AS?

I don't know if WMP will 'record' Streaming Media. But, I know this works with Flash Movies. If you search your Temp Internet files, you can copy the 'copy' to a new folder and save it that way. .

There is a Player called HiNetRecorder which claims to record Streaming Media.

I have used it and it is a bit "hit and miss"

Cheers Kev.

Replay Radio can record audio streams. You can download a limited (15 minutes) version from their website.

AFAIK, WMP only records streams that are, in effect, downloads. This is because they have to be cached and not all streams are cached. For those that are, File and Save As works fine. For things like radio streams, you'll need an app that can capture it "live", such as Audacity. Jet Audio also has this capability, though I couldn't get it to work.

Audacity - see ade.h's post - is free click here. G

Thanks alot people. I've just tried Audacity and that works great and is easy to export as a wav file as well. PPrbh
