How do I record from the Internet?

Last updated on 3/28/2016

If your recording files from YouTube or something similar, a stream converting site like this one is the way to go. Just enter the link and convert the incoming stream to the format of your choice.

XP Users
Please go to Start | Settings | Control Panel | Sounds then click the Recording Tab. Make sure the correct source is selected (Line-in). Click Properties to adjust the input level. You can also reach this by going to Start | Run and type in either SNDVOL32 or SNDVOL32 -R. Now look for the slider marked What you Hear or Stereo Mix, check the box at the bottom marked Select and make sure that the volume fader is up. You may need to click "Properties" on this input. Close the window down, and open up your internet radio.

Next, Audio Creator users need to open the "Editor" module in the Toolbar; Vinyl Recorder users need to open the "Recorder". Press the [Record] button to arm the recorder. You should be getting a signal. Press [Play] to start the recording. If this does not work, try the Windows Sound Recorder. If it doesn't work here either, your sound card or driver may not be capable of rerouting the output to an input. You could always try using a stereo 1/8th inch cable and connect the Speaker jack to the Line-in jack.

Go to Start | Control Panel and open "Sound". Click the "Recording" tab and look for something like "Stereo Mix", "What You Hear" or something similar. We're looking for the input that records everything coming out of your outputs. If you don't see an options like that, it is possible that it is hidden. To show the hidden items:
1) In the Control Panel, click on Classic view.
2) Click on Sound.
3) Select the Recording tab.
4) Right-click any of the devices that are listed.
5) Check "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices."
6) The Stereo Mix option should appear.
7) Save as your default settings.
