Step 1: Install Movavi’s Program for Video and Sound Capture

After downloading, run the file to install the program and follow the instructions. You are just in three simple steps away from capturing internet audio!

Step 2: Set the Capturing Parameters

Step 2 - Start using Movavi streaming audio recorder

To capture streaming music or podcasts, you should record the screen and then save it to an audio file. First, make sure that the System Audio icon in the middle of the window has a green checkmark (if not, just click on it). Next, open the web page containing your audio track. If there is a music video clip as well, you’ll probably want to record a video stream too. To do this, adjust the yellow frame to the size of your desired video file. If you want to record audio only, you can simply position the frame anywhere on your screen.

Step 3: Capture the Online Audio Stream

Step 3 - Click the button to record audio from computer

Click REC to start sound recording. It will start in five seconds. If you’re capturing some internet radio, a YouTube clip or other webcast from a video sharing website, start its playback during the countdown. Once you’ve recorded the desirable fragment, click Stop. If you use Windows, you can also stop the recording by pressing F10 on your keyboard. To do the same on a Mac, press ⌥ ⌘ 2.

Step 4: Edit Your Recording if you want, then Save It

Step 4 - Use sound recorder on Windows and save the result

After finishing recording, you’ll see a preview window with several options. If you want to trim the length of your file, drag the triangle markers on the seek bar to the required time points. For more advanced editing options, click the Edit button. You’ll be taken to the built-in video editing app, where you can split your clip into two or more parts, add fade-in or out effects, or process a video stream if you’ve recorded a video clip.

If you don’t need to edit your video, simply expand the Save as list, choose the desired format, and click the Save button. Awesome! Now you know how to record internet radio and save audio from the website of your choice with Movavi Screen Capture Studio – the best online video/audio downloader for your PC or Mac!
