    This tutorial will teach you how to record online radio into mp3!

    In this tutorial, you will need any good sound editor like Audacity or Adobe Audition. I used Audition 1.5 for this tutorial but this doesn't matter.

    1. Now to access online radio, just copy and paste the links from the following quote in Windows Media Player using File>Open URL..
    2. Now we need to record the streaming sound from the net.
    So double click your Volume icon in the taskbar. Then goto Option>Properties.
    Select Recording and check besides the Stereo Mix.
    Image:[​IMG]

    3. Now goto your sound editor and hit the record bitton. Accept the settings and your recording will now start. Save the file as per your preference.


    [COLOR=#9719256] Note: [/COLOR][COLOR=#9719256]The radio stations in the quote is just the copy paste from the text file that i found on the net. But it will get you started.
    Most(or all?) of the radio stations are streaming at 17-48kbps which is very poor bitrate for mp3 file. But you could search in the Google for higher bitrate online radio links(audio feeds). Some of few I have listed below but if 'd come across such link please post it here:

    I liked this sofware. I recorded directly to mp3. It even automatically adjusts itself for breakages due to buffering etc. Really good piece of software. Thank you for recommending.

    Screamer Radio is interesting, as all the other streamers that appeared at first as free on the market. But very few features on it unfortunatelly :(
    __________
    Well, sad news for me....just ended a crushing spree on my brand new installed Screamer radio...i guess it has un-install written all over it. Gonna get back to my pro streamer :(

    I didn't say it wasn't a nice application, but take the example of Station Reaper that was free at the begining and now it's shareware or smth..then it's gonna be only trial :) And screamer radio just don't cut it for me...

    Bottom line to this is, that I want a free tool that can provide free music for me. I am not into fancy settings or options.
    And what is your pro streamer ? If I might ask ? Or maybe I should start a thread about this, I am curious what people use
