How to Record Internet Radio

Review of Popular Internet Radio Recording Packages

If you're looking to record internet radio, this site will help you decide between the most popular advertised packages. These packages are not "stream rippers" that have dubious legality and can only record Shoutcast stations. Rather, the packages listed here excel at recording streaming audio for making recordings of radio broadcasts from popular stations, for your personal use. You might think of this like a TiVo or VCR for the radio.

All software packages reviewed here require a Windows PC.

Summary

After testing and comparing the packages, Replay A/V 8 from Applian Technologies is the clear winner. It uses a combination of Stream Capture technology to make perfect bit-for-bit recordings of broadcast feeds, as well as Sound Card Recording for stations that cannot be recorded using Stream Capture. Replay A/V has the by far best media guide for picking shows and stations, and can record a wider variety of audio than any other package. (It even records streaming video!) Although it is slightly more expensive than the other programs, we feel it is the best value.
