I'm not sure if this is possible so I'll ask here. I listen to a radio program that is streamed in Real Audio. I wanted to convert that to an mp3 so I can listen to it on my mp3 player on the way to work. My question is how do you record something that is playing on your computer. This is what I tried using lame, but it didn't work (i.e. the program wasn't recorded in mp3, only some fuzz). this is what I tried:
/bin/cat /dev/dsp | /usr/local/bin/lame -m j -s 24.000000 -b <Bitrate>
-r -x -S -h --lowpass 15 --lowpass-width 0 --noshort --nohist -
Is that the right /dev file to record? Thanks for any help. Maybe it isn't possible. And by the way sound quality isn't that important as long as I can hear it.
