    I was just wondering how I'd go about capturing sound if the web page has it's own playback device (they use Real Player and Sony ATRAC3 technology). Some songs can be downloaded, while others can only be streamed. I have not been able to find a redirect code, so I can't use Streambox VCR.

    I have Total Recorder and wonder if it'd do the trick. I'm totally new to it and would need a hand as to getting it set up to grab audio. Also, any other recommended software would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, guys.

    It is usually always better to directly download a stream with a streaming media recorder like StreamBox VCR or others, rather than use a audio recorder. A audio recorder like Total Recorder will work but the sound quality will not be as good as if the stream is downloaded.

    Many people use a program called Project URL Snooper to find the stream URL's they need to use in a streaming media recorder.

    There is other URL Snooper and Packet Sniffer software that will also work but that one is the most popular.

    Thanks, Veblin. I know that you had recommended me to use URL Snooper software before; however, until now, I didn't have a need for it. I was able to "view:source" everything...

    By the way, if the captured streaming media is licensed, that means it's gonna report back to the Mothership when I load it up in Real Player or Windows Media, right? :(

    Are there any kinds of software that remove the licensing from protected media?
