I'd like to save this mp3:

http://www.nhk.or.jp/lesson/english/lesson1.mp3

Is there any way to do this instead of it playing in the browser?

Depending on what browser you have, just right-click that link you just made and do "Save linked content as..." or whatever it is called in your browser.

If you are using linux you can open a console window and do

wget http://www.nhk.or.jp/lesson/english/lesson1.mp3

not to be nasty but if you know how to use linux and a shell, you have already figured out saving files :) – bryan Aug 8 '10 at 17:54
    
@bryan: Not necessarily...there a lot of people out there who figured out how to install Linux but still have no clue about anything. – Bobby Aug 8 '10 at 18:22
    
installing linux, yes, being familiar with the shell and where to find files created/edited from the shell...i don't think so. – bryan Aug 8 '10 at 19:51
    
@bryan: Yeah, I know. Just figured I could throw it in there :p – Svish Aug 9 '10 at 10:58

Right click on the link. Select "Save Link As...". Choose a destination

Right click on the link you provided, click "Save Link As..." and save it where you want it.

Some browsers call it (Save Target As...).

Download your desired MP3 songs from your browser. But I don't know if you want to seek for a downloader to download MP3 songs with ease and free since I can't easily download songs from across the web free. If you are with me, a free MP3 downloader is recommended for you. Just like me, I can use Any MP3 Downloader to download a lot of songs. It's really speedy.

You have 2 choice: (WINDOWS)

  • Using a DownloadManager which shows a pop up each time a music or video is being streamed in a page and lets you download it.
  • Using VideoDownloadHelper Firefox plugin (I dont know if it has an alternative forothers or not).
