Saving Internet audio
shows using stream URL
In order to record an Internet audio show you need to know the URL
(Internet address) of the audio stream. Usually this URL is not the same as
the website URL and is not available. You can use a software programs like
WM Recorder to capture stream URL's by monitoring the network traffic.
Recording and converting
WM Audio records using the default WAV format of
your computer. The default audio format can be found under Playback devices/Properties/Advanced.
To see this right click the speaker icon on your taskbar. Most of Windows
7/8 computers are setup to output a format with a sample rate of 48000 Hz /
16 bit. The recorded file size is proportional to the sample rate and for 48000 samples
per second is about 10 MB/min. Higher sample rates will produce larger
files. Converting to MP3, AAC (MP4) or WMA usually reduces the file size by
a factor of 10.
Recorded WAV files are automatically converted to
the selected format when recording is finished. To select a conversion
format click Settings then click
