Any way to capture a live webcast through RealAudio?

There's a live ReadAudio webcast I would like to capture/save. Anyone know how to do it?

Thanks

Last time this came up someone mentioned "X-File Get".

I think it may be called something else now....

.... I don't use the program and am unaware of its efficacy or whether the practice of "saving" webcasts is legal.

Heh..this is uplifting:

Note! This program is no longer supported by the author. Streambox had legal difficulties with RealNetworks Inc. and therefor this program is illegal to use in the United States -- U.S. users should not download this program!.

I use an old version of Streambox (probably the one posted above). The reason it is no longer supported is because it downloads Real Media files (even those that are copyrighted). They were sued by Real Media and removed that feature from future versions - luckily it still works in the old version. I've never tried capturing an audio stream, but I'm sure it would work via Streambox.

P.S. - Streambox is not the same as X-Fileget

P.P.S. - For some reason Streambox now has difficulties downloading Real Video files - I think that Real has come out with some sort of patch that degrades the quality of Streambox downloads when trying to get video. Good luck with the audio capture.

Ah! I may have misread something when I was checking out the question.

Anyhoo, FWIW, I found these links to X File Get: link.

(As always, it is best to use a virus checker when downloading from an unknown source and before running the .exe).

Ok...now for the next step...I've got the file but how can I convert it to say mp3 or wav?



The software worked like a charm audio wise. However, it didn't capture the video feed except for one still image. Perhaps I didn't have it set-up right. Didn't get a whole lot of time to mess with it prior to needing it. Audio sound is good though.
