There is some music or sound effect in certain website that I'm really interested to get a copy from for my own purposes.
My first attempt is to check out the html code, maybe I'm lucky and the audio file is explicitly referenced in there, but sadly it's not the case.
So the next attempt is to look for the file among the temporary files stored by the browser's cache, hopefully I will find an mp3 file in there.
Guess what, there are only extension-less files, whose names tell nothing about their content.
Maybe the most current file using more memory (sound files tend to be heavier in terms of memory usage) is a good candidate, but I cannot tell which file extension should I use to play it (maybe the data was stored in mp3/wav/whatever format, assuming I was lucky enough to pick a sound file to start with ...). So I have the following ideas in my mind:
Somehow let the sound driver tell me which audio files are being played right now, so it would be easy to spot the file that the browser is playing. Is this even possible? [TITLE QUESTION]
Have some program record the audio played by the computer for a while, and then use Audacity to extract the portion I'm interested in. [Any suggestions about programs to record audio being played by the computer?]
If there is any other suggestion about how to retrieve audio files from a website, please feel free to post it.
Here is the link: http://onlinetonegenerator.com/voice-generator.html Just write any custom meaningful string in the input box, and try to spot the file (if any) being played when you click on the Play button.
