This webpage surveys the various products on offer to rip (a groovy word meaning ‘record’ I guess) streaming video and audio into files like MP3 files.
I’m not too interested in video, but occasionally want to convert a streaming audio into an MP3 file. So in the very likely event that there’s good advice out there on this matter, I’m asking for it. What I (and perhaps other Troppodillians) am (should this word be ‘are’?) after is a program that’s as easy as possible to use, not chock full of features that will confuse me without giving me any capability I’m likely to use. And of course the closer to free it is – the better.
And the page on MP3 ‘rippers’ is here.
