<p>Thanks for this tutorial as it saved me from having to download any software that claims to do the job but gives you some crappy output. However, with VLC version 2.2.1 which I am using, you can skip step 4 of creating a container file. Simple add your desired file name in the destination field of the CONVERT dialogue box with the .mp3 extension.</p>
<p>I use Stream Writer now for all my internet radio recording. I updated this instructable with the URL so you can go get a copy for yourself!</p>
The method through VLC is FREE while the radiosure method is $10 after the 48 hour trial. The object of this method is that is costs nothing to the end user. I do understand that there are other methods that cost money including radiosure and the wondershare product. If people want to spend money to accomplish recording radio streams, then I suggest they not bother with this method.
Will this work for vlc 0.8.6i or only for newest release ?
Neat, but I'm a fan of using Audacity to record (and edit) streaming audio--it's a lot easier than jumping through all those hoops.
