How do I get Winamp to save a music stream coming from a web page, while it is playing through my sound system, when the web page only allows me to click and listen to the song as there is no file of the song available for me to download?

I tried the Ctrl+L and entering linein:// then hitting play on Winamp and then played the song off of the URL "http://www.weblog2000.com/barneyskidspag/temp/wheels.html" (this is the song I want for my daughter). But either this function is not for my purpose or I am incorrect with the procedure if this is the correct function item.

Any ideas? Is it possible for Winamp to capture and store a music stream to disk as a WAV file as the song is being played through the PC sound system off of a web page?

I ckecked out the page, this is a shockwave movie.
What you can do is use a program such as Memoweb to retrieve the file and save it to your HD.
Then, you can open the swf file in Flash and export the sound to wav.

Thankyou Twilightseer! I am almost there. I have the wheels.swf file on my hard drive and can play it in IE5. However, after installing Macromedia Flash (it just installs off of the web) I can play the SWF in my browser, but do not understand how to save as a WAV file. Can you point me to the appropriate tech doc that will educate me?

Thankyou, ancientepic

Launch Flash.
Choose "import" in the file menu, select your swf file.
Choose "export" in the file menu, and choose"wav" as file type.

That should work (I'm not too familiar with this stuff)
Also, check out Flash's Help file.
