Having problems downloading the .MP3 file from this URL. A .wax file keeps popping up.

http://10.128.3.175:1755/EO_audios/ondarra031012.mp3?MSWMExt=.asf
http://82.223.131.30:1755/EO_audios/ondarra031012.mp3?MSWMExt=.asf

I had trouble even resolving its IP without a little sniffing. Dont know why its hiding so much.

Can someone tell me how to do it?

Thank you Neowin :)

Tried them all in IDM, the first one picks up the wax file and downloads it, with the second two it picks up the mp3 files but it won't download them it just sticks at "connecting".

EDIT: My bad, just noticed the 3rd link also gives the .wax file so maybe the 2nd link is the best to try and get it from.

Try taking your first link and remove [b]?MSWMExt=.asf[/b] from the end, then try the remaining URL all the way up to [b].mp3[/b] in the DL manager

Play it with the browser and check temp internet files for the .mp3 ?




EDIT - Maybe something like Audacity and Stereo Mix will be able to record it while its streaming

If I remove the [b]?MSWMExt=.asf [/b]from the URL and paste it into the address bar in Firefox, it prompts to download the MP3 just fine for me.

Still just the wax file :( I agree best way to get it would probably just be free audio recording software and just record it from the stream.

Check the size of the .mp3 though, I managed that but it was like 556bytes

Same for me in Chrome, but when I try and play the file in WMP it just says that it encountered a problem and can't play it, plus the MP3 is only 1Kb. Could just be a problem with Chrome though.

How big is the wax file ? Can't you rename / convert to .mp3 ? (Not sure what wax files are)

The wax file is only 1Kb as well, I hadn't encountered it before either but it appears to just allow a stream of the song to your media player. Checked the properties in WMP but the location still points to the wax file :(

Ohh well I'm away to the pub, good luck!

The .wax file is just a shortcut thing for Windows Media Player or whatever you use, to stream the audio, I guess.

Damn I remember I used to be able to use Vista's WMP to download those files that stream instead of download. Forgot the method. :(

You do need to set the stream to "Windows Media Streaming" when adding the URL.
File is 2.78MB

Download them as .wax files and use Freemake Audio Converter ([url="http://www.freemake.com/free_audio_converter/"]http://www.freemake.com/free_audio_converter/[/url]) to convert them into .mp3 :)

If you read previously, the .wax files are basically redirects/shortcuts/whatever.
