Recording Audio from WMP Stream

I have this pls files that allows my media player to play this online radio. I would like to record an interval of the stream and save it to MP3. I could use Virtual Audio Cable and Sound Recorder together to achieve this, but I'm sure there is a better way.

For example, Windows Sound Recorder saves to WMA, and I want MP3. And using Virtual Audio Cable seems like overengineering this solution.

VLC (although not the perfect tool for the job) does this quite easily for you. Using the 'advanced open' dialogue, you can select your stream, and save it to a specific location (in mp3 if you wish).

Further editing can be done using Audacity.

VLC saves to 128 kbps MP3 by default. But I could change it. – Jader Dias May 22 '11 at 23:43

I use "Replay Media Catcher" from Applian for this kind of thing. Very good and can save directly to MP3.

AIMP has that feature build in.
