When I play BBC radio 4 extra on my Windows Media Player, how can I record it? Thanks to you I now can listen to BBC radio 4 extra on my media player, but I would love to be able to record some of the programs. Please cn you help?

    Great examples above... another software that's actually worked for me is Audacity. It's not built to record radio or tv or anything specific.. the best way to understand is : it records whatever is sent to the speakers on your computer. Don't get me wrong though, it's not the same as holding a tape recorder close to your laptop speakers (that records the sound once the sound is coming out of your speakers) but infact it actually records it as if the computer itself is recording it...

    bah you'll have to give it a try to see what i mean, it's awesome though :)

    the recording of radio streaming using Windows Media Player is not possible. You may use your favorite search engine to search for any third party software to do that.

    Windows media encoder

    Set it capture audio from your soundcard (like the stereo mixer), then
    choose save to file, select the audio quality, name the session etc, and you
    are off... Save the settings and you can reuse it again... remember it will
    reuse the previous output file, but you can change that in the session
    settings each time if you wish...

    try winamp + streamripper
