    I wonder if anyone has any experience in capturing music from an internet radio broadcast.

    The only way I can think of is to tape from the speakers either directly or just by recording outside the speaker. My speakers are built into the monitor so the latter seems like the only way. Unfortunately, the recorded sound quality isn't that great this way, especially from RealAudio.

    (I find WinAmp and WindowsMedia sound is a lot less tinny/scratchy than RealAudio. Does anyone else find this too? Is it possible to play radio broadcasts interchangeably, ie is there any way of making RealAudio broadfcasts play in WinAmp or Windows Media? I run RealPlayer 8 Basic.)

    Thanks.

    Not too sure about the legalities of recording internet radio stations, especially the more established or commercial ones so check first !!

    You can record internet 'audio streams' with the likes of Ultra player which can save in MP3 format.
