    One of the difficulties with using Fedora (or

in mind.

For some time, I have been using this product
forWindows, which allows me to record streaming audio
as I play itfrom one of the on-demand music services.
Nice thing about it is,you're still paying for the
music, but you can save and play laterwithout being
online. If you are ethical--as are we all--and don't
giveaway or sell the resulting MP3s, you're still
legal (even while you'renot hampered by the ridiculous
DRM schemes--another plus).

Anyway, I am wondering what, if any, Linux software is
available to dothis. I get the impression that mplayer
will doit--although the documentation for that
application, like so manyothers in the Linux world, is
far from explicit in that regard. Again,it looks like
if you're savvy about this stuff--maybe you have to
beable to read the source, I dunno--then you can
figure it out. But I'mnot, or I don't have time to get
up to speed. I'm looking for somethingthat "just
works" on Fedora Linux.

There is a program called streamripper.  It allows you
to capture streams from the internet to your machine.
RPMS for FC5 are available at

Try them and hope that this helps.



Of course, I can always move over to a Windows machine
and do this, butI'm trying earnestly to move 100% over
to Linux now, and this is one ofthose "must have"
functions I'm looking to implement accordingly.

Any advice would be MOST welcome.
