downloading embed to mp3 file

Hello I am new to the forum and I need your help. There is a song on a website that does not allow me to download it but it has an embed code for youtube, myspace, facebook, etc. but I want to download it to an mp3 file so that I am able to burn it on a cd for example. How can I do that? I prefer using an online converter if there is one before using programs to convert. Is it possible? Thanks.

Re: downloading embed to mp3 file

O.K. I just checked the site. I downloaded the music that is playing using FireFox with Download Helper. The files are FLV. I don't know what browser you are using but after the song you want has finished playing just check your cache folder and copy the file with the .flv extension to you desktop or wherever you want to save it.

If you can play it, then you can use an audio recording/editing app like Audacity, to record it and save as wav or mp3....

Thanks I just added Download Helper to Firefox but I can't figure out how to use it. When I click on it, I get the list but which one is the one I am looking for? Thanks.

Re: downloading embed to mp3 file

First, open the page with the embedded song and wait until it buffers. Then click the arrow beside the download helper logo (but not the animated helper icon itself):



Click the title that appears below it and in the save box specify where to save it. Once saved, open it with your preferred media player (e.g. VLC)

After I download and save it, it doesn't play. It opens with RealPlayer but it doesn't play at all. I don't know what's wrong. Any help? Appreciate the extra assistance.

Re: downloading embed to mp3 file

Does the file you downloaded have the extension .flv? If it does, you need to convert it to mp3. Use this program http://www.formatoz.com/.
Select the audio tab, select All to mp3, then add your file and convert it.

Re: downloading embed to mp3 file

Try right-clicking on it and select "Open with... " and choose a different media player (e.g. Winamp if you've it installed).

It's worth installing VLC or Winamp if you don't have either program, as these will both play FLV files.

Edit: Didn't see Whappo's suggestion until after posting this. That's another option.
