I'm listening to an mp3 file from the web. However I cant store it on my machine since it is on a website. However I want to listen to this on my MP3 file. Does anyone know how it can be done? eg is there some way of recording the sounds played on my soundcard and if so how do i do it?

Player,If you use WinAmp, there is an add on called "Stream Ripper". It will simply rip the music to an MP3 file. I think that would be the easiest way.Good luck Terror

First look for it in your temporary internet files, and the secret directory Content.IE5.The next easiest, but imperfect solution, is to get "Virtual Audio Cable" off some torrent. Then you set one end of the cable as your speakers, and another end as the mic from your recording application. The imperfect aspect is that it is decompressed and recompressed.It is also possible you could use VideoLan ("VLC") to play it from the web address and dump it to a file.Or, you could just search for it on Limewire like a normal person.

If it's on a website it has a URL. View the HTML source of the page it's on and work out the direct link. Download that. If it's a podcast look at the XML file and get the direct link from there.
