Recording audio streaming via Real Audio or Media Player?

Discussion in 'Computing' started by Martin Taylor, Aug 24, 2005.

  1. I'm currently listening to an ABC audio stream Sydney's ABC 702 via
    Media Player. I have Cool Edit 2000 installed. I'm wondering if there is
    a way that I can record to wav or mp3 file the audio stream, other than
    outputing it to another device, (tape recorder, laptop via line in,
    etc.).

    I want to be able to record an upcoming program soon.

    Thanks

    If you haven't worked this out by now you should have.
    ABC was down when I tested this so I had some yank
    station streaming.
    I don't use Cool Ed so I had to install it for the test.
    while Media Player was streaming I just hit record on Cool Ed
    and bingo it recorded the stream, Hit stop then save as MP3.
    Couldn't have been more simple I'm sorry to say.
    Keep in mind, The higher the sample/bit rate the larger the saved
    file will be. I did my test using only 16000-8bit-mono and got just
    over 1mb per minute.

    What settings have got set in Cool Edit? Presumably you're running CE
    2000? What version Media Player. I'm running Ver 10.

    I have uninstalled Cool Ed again as I don't like it, I find Soundforge
    or something like that to be much better.
    I ran Cool Ed with the default settings it installed with.
    Running XP sp2 and media player 9 as I find ver 10 too
    intrusive as far as internet options are concerned.
