    Well the easiest way is to get a 1/8" stereo jack y, then replace where you plug in your speakers and headphones, with the y, then plug your speakers into one end of the y and the other end into the line in or mic. Then use sound recorder, winamp or any other recording program. there are software programs out there but I can not remember them

    No way thorugh RealPlayer

    Realplayer sucks anyways, has very poor compression.



    edit: YEAH, worse than FM radio

    WinAmp also has internet radio, and sounds much better.

    Thats what we use here, and there is a "streamripper" program so you can save the "program" to your computer.

    http://www.shoutcast.com/

    and you don't need WinAmp to listen to the Shoutcast music, just for the Streamripper program.

    The shoutcast plays in mediaplayer too

    Not a problem, it was actually my brother sitting next to me on his computer that mentioned this stuff.

    He stays up all night chatting with people all over the world, and then some i think:crazy: .

    He just finished up with all the computer programming and technical stuff in college, he can do some funky sheot on a computer i have never seen before.

    But anyways, he knows ALOT of stuff about alot of programs out there running around, what is good, what is not, what is decent, for instance, this Firefox program that alot of people on here talk highly about, is having alot of compatability problems i guess.

    He knows about certain programs with security and spyware problems, RealPlayer being one of them.

    Anyway, hope you like the WinAmp prog, i really do, really don't use anything else for music.

    making it your default player, is in the settings somewhere, not sure right off, it's the file extensions your looking for, for WinAmp to recognize and play, or you could just select them all, but that might include some videos, which i personally keep as mediaplayer format.
