downloading mp3 from listening sites


I am using ubuntu 8.04 with firefox browser.

There are some sites which allow you to listen the mp3 song like
http://player.pz10.com/api/?song=8304

I have found the most simple way to get mp3 file
(1)
Sometimes you get address ending with .mp3 so just copy the whole URI and use in terminal
wget "PasteWhatYouCopied"
(2)But in the link I have mentioned there is no mp3 link in address bar.
here I found out in totem-plugin-viewer(that is the thing that plays your file in browser).Just Click the button next to sound and select copy
in example taken above it is
http://media.cdn.pz10.com/mm/files/4...8779584162259c
and use just like before
wget "PasteWhatYouCopied" -O output.wma
Also notice that you have the song as output.wma in current folder of terminal.
(3)If there is a video on webpage then either wait for it to get completely downloaded & get it from /tmp.Remember don't close the page till video gets downloaded completely & you copied it from /tmp then only close that tab.
(4)There is a firefox addon 'unplug' which can help for flv because after sending file to download via unplug you can close that tab.

Just I wanted to share.
Thank you.

I also want to request moderator or anybody who has sufficient rights to change the thread subject to "downloading mp3 and video from webpages".

I found this site www.bollyfm.net that plays music online using a swf player.There should be some way to get the music after all firefox downloads the song being played.
What do you say ?
It is just my curiosity.

i got it with somebody's help

You can clear cache (through tools>clear private data) before playing song or video then you get less results to analyze.
(NOTE:Be careful.Select only cache otherwise you may lose your saved passwords & browsing history)

(5)The long way:
I found the song of 4.5 MB named as A1E89355d01 in .mozilla/firefox/m0p26gqk.default/Cache/ folder.
i will suggest
$find ~/.mozilla -type f -size +1M
(1)You should have some idea of file size to further reduce results.
(2)Use trid(http://mark0.net/soft-trid-e.html) on results to determine file type.

(6)Another better option is run in address bar
about:cache?device=disk
Nothing weird just checking in disk cache device search 'mp3' & click on that key then see "file on disk" entry.
Also you can see the mp3 location if you want to wget though no reason to do it because already on disk so why bother.That's it.

(7)I also found out flv file.But here it had 'youtube or whatever your website name is' in keyname.
then rest is same as (6).

I just wanted to explore.It is fun.
Thank You.

guys! it's very simple!

Just install an add-on DownloadHelper to your Firefox. Very easy to use, very helpful! It will make it possible to download both audio and video files, playing online in your browser.

Cheers

A few days ago I have noticed for the 1st time that DownloadHelper couldn't download video from http://www.khl.ru/video/

Maybe there's some kind of video-protection? And the same about your second link...

In http://www.khl.ru/video/ and http://player.pz10.com/api/?song=8304.
The way is to clear cache before playing the video or music then you can use my (6) way to get that audio or video.
Because whatever you play it ultimately is downloaded by the browser.Just a matter of digging out from cache.

I could not get mp3 song from
http://www.dhingana.com/play/sun-sun...D/pop/1?beta=0

In firefox
I found out that it stores the song in memory cache instead of disk cache.
In case of disk cache you see the location of file on hard disk hence no problem
But here the data is in memory .
How can I get it ?
If I click on key it says 'access denied'
if I save the key link then I get the html file displaying key , fetch count , whole file in hex mode etc. etc. not the 2686247 byte mp3 file.
If I wget the link then I just get a 13byte file.
So what can I do ?
Surprise surprise
in Internet explorer
I found that temporary files were stored in
C:\Users\Guest1\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files folder
In this folder I found .php file which has to be just renamed to mp3 after whole song has been buffered.
I wish firefox could also get the needed file as I rate it above internet explorer.
What do you suggest ?
