[blindreplay] Handling Output Files When The Conversion Dosn't Go Smoothly

Recently I have come across some entries in the Replay Recordings folder 
where I can find no .asf or .mp3 files, but only .m3u and .cab files.  I 
trued opening a .m3u file to look for the recoding itself, but could not 
find a way to do it.  I suppose I should have coped it to Notepad,but didn't 
do it.  I did find a number of .cab files and am not sure how to handle 
these.  Of course this begs the question of why the recordings and 
conversions didn't complete correctly.  This drive is getting rather full 
and I have deleted a number of old broadcasts and try to remember to delete 
each as soon as I'm finished with it; but it is not a dedicated drive and 
shares space with many other files.  I'm wondering if the scarcity of space, 
only a couple of gigs or so, has anything to do with the problems I'm 
having.  The problem largely seems to affect recordings from a certain site 
which streams with Media Player; though I have seen some .mp3's there. 
Should I try converting to .mp3 after recording has been completed?  I'd 
like to maintain the ability to listen in Media Player, but for the most 
part these are not to be kept permanently so MP3 would be an option over not 
having the recording at all.

Any help would be appreciated, including strategies on working with the 
output files that have been created.

Thanks in advance.
