I am in need of a program for Windows with which to record and possibly cut-edit/save streams of MP3, OGG and Realmedia format.
Cooledit and Goldwave are two that come to mind, but they'll only do mp3. OGG and Realmedia are going to be a pain in the arse unless you get plugins or transcode.
mp3DirectCut will cut mp3s without re-compressing, which is pretty useful.
I asked the same question on the old iichan discussion boards and I think it was you who mentioned some program to me which was supposed to be able to do all this. It was pretty obscure and had no GUI, so I didn't really try at first and then forgot about it. Care to mention it again?
Ah, yes, good old mplayer.
Try the windows version of macamp. just dig up a serial and record away.
BTW, does anybody know how to record an AAC+ (or HE-AAC? or whatever it is called) stream? I've tried to use the modified http plugin for foobar which in theory allows you to save the stream, but it appears that for AAC+ streams the resulting file doesn't seem to be playable somehow.
mplayer won't do it?
Just tried that and yes it does. But the problem remains the same: how do I play back the resulted file? Neither foobar nor mplayer don't recognize it as an mp4 stream no matter which extension I give to the file.
That IS pretty weird.
However, I remember that in the early days of iTunes DRM cracking, somebody made a program that captured the AAC stream out of the file after decrypting but before decoding. However, that stream was also unplayable, but you could fix it with some AAC command-line tool. However, I forget the details. Try to Google for that and see what you find.
That someone was DVD-Jon, Before he got his hands on iTunes RSA keys and found a better way of busting FairPlay.

Thanks for the pointers. I've dug up that old method - it actually involved running the dumped file through faad2 commandline decoder. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work either (for reasons I'm not sure of, maybe because AAC is a different file format than AAC+?). Then I found a similar question in a thread here: http://www.audiocoding.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=220&forum=2 . It says latest faad2 CVS supports it. Too bad binaries aren't available from there. I'll try to compile it under Windows, and if that will succeed I'll post results here.
