    Excuse the lack of terminology but what im looking to do is......

    A radio station has on its website a program that has already happened and you can listen to it in a stream ( i think its called) but what i want to do is save it onto my computer. I have tried right clicking and pressing 'save target as' but it just saves the link.

    Help!

    Sorry if this has been asked 1000 times before but i just didnt understand the terminology!:)

    A Google search for "save streaming audio" will yield about 400,000 hits. Several on the first page look like they provide the information you're looking for.

    I use Winamp and StreamRipper for compatible stations. There are several types of streaming audio, so you'll have to find the compatible program to capture it.

    Put a patch cable with a switch on it in between the speakers and the microphone, then just record off the mike while you play the streaming sound out the speakers. There's always more than one way to skin a cat.

    Many sound cards come with software that have a recorder incorporated in it. For instance the Sound Blaster cards have Create Recorder as part of the software and there are options within the recorder to select "Record what you hear".
    You may want to check your program files and see if your system has anything like that.

    I wonder if the files are in the windows/temporary internet files folder and one could wipe them clean just before streaming them. You cold find them easier then since they are labled so oddly. They could be even stored in the media players file folder.
