Streaming radio recording program problem

Q: Streaming radio recording program problem

I'm trying to use 2 demo streaming radio recording programs separately. I get an error message saying that I'm not connected to the internet when I am. My OS is Vista buisiness. I can browse, download & connect to streaming radio stations, but the recording programs can't connect to the internet. I'm using IE7.
Any ideas how I can fix this so that I can record streaming radio?

Preferred Solution: Streaming radio recording program problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Problems with the audio playback when recording streaming audio :

I have downloaded several 'what you hear' recording apps. Tonight was Audacity with Lame encoder and then when that did not work, downloaded and installed MP3MyMP3.

Since they do not come with great instructions, all I did was go to my favorite streaming audio from a local radio station ; got the show playing through my speakers; opened up the recording app and then pressed the record button. Both apps seemed to be recording and both saved to mp3 files. But when I play them back there is no audio. Am I missing a step ?

my audio card is NVIDAI(R)nFORCE AUDIO. OS is XP.

We want to start recording a short program that will go out over shortwave radio. We aren't sure what would be the best software to do this. We will need to be able to record and edit 2 different tracks. Then we will put the program onto a cd that will be sent to the station to then be put on the air. We only have the basic sound card that came with our Dell computer and realize we may need to upgrade it. If anyone can offer us advise on this we would really appreciate it.

when I click a online streaming radio link, for example, mms://media.lewisnews.com/TVNEWSLies . Real Player pops out and tries to play it, but Windows Media Player throws an error:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. In the Open URL dialog, try opening the file using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").

The error code is C00D11BB, according to MS Windows solution, Tools > Options > Network, and tick all Streaming Protocols (UDP, TCP, HTTP) can solve the problem. But, it din't work at all~

I have tried reinstall Real Player and also reinstall Windows Media Player (but, Windows Media Player doesn't allow me to uninstall it), it throws the same error again.

Can someone give some advices?

I have a Realtek HD Audio sound card, and I'm trying to record a snippet of sound from a streaming source, but it never records on my audio program. I think what it is is this; when I go into my Volume properties to change my settings, although it gives me the options of setting the controls for wave output, there's none for wave input (just CD, mic volume, front mic, and line).

Set the default recording device to Stereo Mix if you have it.

Right click on the Microsoft Speaker icon in the task bar, select recording devices.
Right click anywhere in the window that opens and enable both "Show Disconnected" and "Show Disabled Devices" do you see "Stereo Mix" as an option? If so, select it and click the "Set Default" button.

I have this desire to record a particular FM radio station to CD-ROM. The period of interest is 4 hours long.

I have found the Radio Stations detail's but haven't actually got it to play on the Web yet. Part of the problem looks like it is going to be; it uses a Media Player format. Due to the way it streams music in real time apparently there is a degrading of quality. Got other stations to play but not this particular one. They don't seem to be exactly in the forefront of this technology. (WMJX 106.7 Boston)

My other problem is once, I finally get the Radio Station to actually play on my computer, how do I record it? I have ADAPTEC CD CREATOR 4 software and it does have something called Liquid Music Player but leaves me puzzled about exactly how I am going to lash that up in real time. I really prefer not to have to do it as a direct write CD-ROM. OK, maybe I could and then rerecord that.

My other option seems to be record on my Bubblebox on a cassette and then come in via the mic input. Again not sure how I lash that up to actually get ADAPTEC to see it as a record-able file.

Is there some other freebie software to make MP3 or data files of inputs via the mic input on say a hard drive or ZIP drive and then that be converted to CD-ROM in a conventional way?

Does anyone do this type recording now? What are the details to know? Any Websites that can record the time interval and then me download it as a file? Looking for the better mouse trap on this one. ... Read more

Is that possible?
And, if it is, which program should be used?

There is one show ("Sold on song" with GMichael) that's online for just one or two days more and I wonder if I can get my hands on it somehow? It was broadcasted on radio so whoever wanted to record it from UK could? so I guess recording it (if possible) from the net isn't illegal?

I know? this can be rated as a pretty dumb question but when it comes to GM, I am not afraid to ask

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.)

If it can be done can you please tell me how.

I am resident in the UK, though I also spend some time in the USA each year. When in the UK I used to record a number of radio programmes onto cassette or mini-disk (remember them?) from my FM radio, using a timer on the hi-fi system - the programmes were either broadcast when I was out or asleep, which is why the timer is important. Sadly, the hi-fi has died and so neither the cassette not the mini-disk are options for the future. I bought a Roberts DAB radio with a memory card slot to make recordings but this has proved very unreliable (I've had three so far, all of which have failed) and they no longer make a model with a memory card slot. I am not aware of any other radio in the UK which has this facility.

It seems to make sense to record these radio programmes from the internet. Some are available as podcasts from the BBC, but a few aren't. What recommendations do you have for software which will enable me to make these recordings?

Hopefully you may be able to suggest a solution to my issue.

What I am looking for is some software that helps me identify an audio link
so I can play a radio station streaming on the net on windows media player
rather than activating the player that is a pop-up on the web page or in
some cases an embedded player in the web page itself. These players are OK
but are full of adverts and use a bit of internet energy rather than
allowing it all to feature in producing the output via the player.

There are alternative links one occaisionally finds on other web pages which
directly activate the windows media player. The problem is though that
often these links change and sites such as this aren't always updated as
frequently as an avid listener like me would wish, so, I'd like to be able
to work them out for myself when they change so I can listen to them at the
time I want to. Any suggestions as to what software I need to obtain to help
me in this task would be gratefully received .

I want to be able to record internet radio streams such as AOl.
I am running Vista in a new Dell computer.
I first tried using any number of software recorders downloaded and none worked.
Then it occured to me that my computer had only integrated sound and not a sound card which appeared to be necessary to record.
So I bought a SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio card, installed it and downloaded drivers for Vista OS. Still did not work as I discovered there was no "Stereo Mix" or "What U Hear" recording source on this card.
Creativr Labs says its not the card but Vista OS which changed from XP and no longer accomodates recording internet streams.

Does anyone know for sure or is there any way around this bearing in mind the Vista OS and sound card without Stereo Mix function.

Maybe there is some software solution of which I am not aware.

I sure would like to be able to record this stuff.

I listen to a radio station that is only on the net. It is not broadcast. I want to record it. I am downloading demo of replay music's (replay-music.com) product now and they assure that it's all legal.

However, I really don't want to save on my drive, as it may come down to being illegal. (And i read that just the fact that some innocents have legal purchased music residing on their computer, that once they go on the net, they are actually breaking the law, because once they are on the net it's in the public domain.)

Do they make speakers that have a capability that I can use some type of digital recording device, and also a switch, so that i can listen and record at the same time?

Or a double switch to plug into the back of the sound card, one for speakers and the other for some sort of digital recorder?

A recorder that I could buy more medium for?

(I'm way behind the times.)

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

A:Radio streaming while using other applications

Hi there
Much better idea -- don't use a browser - use this application -- Logictech SQUEEZE SERVER with the SQUEEZEPLAY application -- you can play your own Music as well as Internet Radio etc. BOTH FREE. It will also play music from network disks and you can stream music around the house via Wifi etc . You don't need to have the Logitech hardware - Other computers can recive the streamed media too. Uses very little resource, works on W8 x-86 and X-64 and saves you having to be in a browser when you want to do other things on your computer.

This software can also stream to your mobile phone if you download the mobile phone app too.

Some Software Beta Downloads - Version 7.8

download ist two applications in the list

Note - sometimes when using a browser if the Internet Radio pauses it could be one of two things -- your Internet connection isn't fast enough or the server isn't fast enough -- both causes will cause time outs and re-buffering.

The Squeezeplay software allows you to Buffer a certain time before playing which is quite good if you are experiencing a lot of "time outs" - although the application will then take slightly longer to start. Set it say to 25 secs as a test.

I pay for my Internet connection at home, but the kids are tying it up by leaving their computers on with a darn radio station. I keep telling them not to use it, but they don't listen.

So I want to just take streaming away from those computers. It isn't like they don't have a stack of CDs to listen too and I don't want to fork out more money to get a faster connection - just so they can listen to the radio.

A:How does Streaming Audio Radio work

Read other 12 answers


I've been having problems with connecting to all of the stations provided by Virgin Radio's online streaming site on two of my computers. I've done plenty of troubleshooting on one of them and cannot determine the reason why I can't get the stream to work.

The specific one I would like to get working is this one. It works just fine on my desktop, but doesn't work on 2 of my laptops right now. The player loads up just fine and the ads with sound are audible. When the interface that shows the song and artist loads up, I just can't hear the music. I've tried re-installing Flash from the Adobe site, re-installing Java from Sun Micro's site, switching from IE8 to Firefox 3.5, uninstalling Firefox 3.5 and trying Firefox 3.0, accessing the stream from this site via WMP 11 stream, accessing the Toronto station, restoring my hosts file to default settings, uninstalling Spybot S&D and I have no idea what I can try next!

I have this EXACT same problem on two laptops, one of which has Vista Home and the other has XP Home which are both legal copies. Both of these copies were freshly re-installed from scratch as well just last week. Yet, my desktop with Windows 7 and latest version of everything listed does not have this problem at all.

I would appreciate any further suggestions in solving this issue as I'm very frustrated and completely stumped at the moment.
