I used to be able to record streaming audio through WMPlayer in my old PC (with the SOUNDMAN audio card) and make an instant MP3 file onto Nero WaveEditor Ultra 6. I had it down, man.....and did it all the time. Nero WaveEditor 6 recognized the source card and recorded it as "stereo mix".
I recently moved to a new PC with a Realtek High Definition Audio card and upgraded to Nero Ultra 7. The specs for this audio card are:
Audio Driver Ver. - 5.10.00.5233
DirectX ver. - DirectX 9.0c
Audio Controller - HD Audio
Audio Codec - ALC 861
The old Nero 6 WaveEditor app had "Stereo Mix" as the only input option, and that was the one that worked.
The Audio > Record drop-down on the new Nero 7 WaveEditor has four choices: 1.)CD Player, 2.) Microphone, 3.) Front Mic, and 4.)Line In. I generally have chosen "Line In".
None work. I've been tinkering around with this now for hours and tried config's with WMPlayer11, Nero WaveEditor 7, and the Realtek HD Audio Manager . Nothing seems to work like it used to. I've tried a few apps to record streaming audio, like Audacity, Mp3MyMp3, etc but none of them seem to work...
The Realtek audio output choices are: Wave, SW Synth, Front, CD Volume, Line Volume, and Mic Volume. (I've tried 'em all, but generally test with Line Volume.
The Realtek audio input choices are the same as displayed in Nero WaveEditor 7, and the WMPlayer....they recognize CD Player, Mic, Front Mic, and Line In.
But I can't seem to record streaming audio off the internet, like I did before in the old PC (with the Soundman audio card). So I am beginning to wonder...did the manufacturer or someone disable these PC soundcards to prevent recording streaming audio from live audio broadcasts ???
Did they make it so you just can't do this ?
It used to work and I did it all the time before.......
Did the manufacturers make this audio card so that it can't record live streaming audio ???
This is the Q!
