Can I record streaming audio onto my hard drive? and if so, how do I do it?
There are programs that can do this...like Advanced Audio Recorder. There are probably free alternatives though....wait for more/better input from our members.
Audacity(freeware)..Or Goldwave(not free)....if you can hear it from your speakers, you can record (what u hear)....
Free Sound Recorder: http://www.sound-recorder.biz/freesoundrecorder.html.
Audacity is also good but Free Sound Recorder is not a sound editor like Audacity. It's just a recorder.
Vlc can also capture streaming audio.
