Is it possible to record streaming audio for a web site that uses a Flash Player or Silverlight player? I thought at times it might be nice to record the live radio and play it back later, but the sites I've listened to are Flash/Silverlight, with no public WMA or ASMX link...

You should be able to do this for free using a few piece of open source software. You would route the audio from your browser and plugins to a virtual output, then the output into recording software.

For the recording side, Audacity is a great open source recording application. For routing the audio, you can use Soundflower.

This can also be accomplished using just Audio Hijack, which can be bought for 32 dollars:

Good luck!
