Download Napster Songs For Free

Picture of Download Napster Songs For Free
Basically the only tools you need are URL Helper, and Sothink Flash Decompiler. This will allow you to get songs right into mp3 format, and you won't have to use some sound recording software that makes it so you can't do anything else. Plus the bitrate is low, and so the songs are downloaded quickly, this is a perfect tool for Dial Up users.

Step 1: Find your song.

First go to napster and find the song you want to download. But do not click play yet.

http://free.napster.com/

Step 2: Open URL Helper

Open up URL Helper. If you don't have it then obtain it by any means you can but I will not be held liable if you obtain the program illegally. Once it is open, select the adapter your internet is running on and then start sniffing for URLs. Now click the play button for the song you want.

Step 3: Download the Song

Now a lot of links will pop up in URL helper. Look for the following link. http://63.241.45.44/stream.swf , Right click the link and then select Download Immediately. This will download it to what ever the save folder is and the default is c:\URLHelper\.

Step 4: Export the MP3

Okay now that the file has downloaded open up Sothink SWF Decompiler. If you do not have it obtain it but I will not be held liable if you obtain the program illegaly. Open up the .swf file, stop the music from playing. In the top left corner select stream.swf>Sound>streamsound 0. Finally click Export Resources, be sure Sound is set to Sound(*.wav,*.mp3) then choose where to export it to and click ok.
Now you have the song :)

Well actually, Limewire isn't free at all. The free version is severely limited and doesn't offer the same connections speed as the payed pro version. Odd as the network it browses isn't built to facilitate such payed and non-payed accounts, instead it is free to all with all the speed you want. Alternatively to limewire you should use frostwire, it is basically the same program, only really free. Google it or something. Have fun downloading music and movies.. hey I can say it because I am from the Netherlands, we ARE allowed to download anything except software legally. :)

The fact that you have to include that probably means that this way isn't entirely legal, so why bother.. download from limewire. Note that I'm not endorsing the illegal downloading of music, I'm just saying call it what it is...
