Hi Petro,

Thanks for your message. Unfortunately the archives appear in a drop-down list, not as links, and there's another menu for selecting the date once you select the show. (In order to get to those in the first place the link for the on demand archives is accessed from within the live stream.) It's all quite cumbersome and I'll be contacting the station about this, but thank you for the info.

Try this:

Find the first RP archive link.
That is be on the link.
Do a insert+F7.
Press your tab key 1 time.
Press space bar 1 time.
Press your applications key.
Choose copy shortcut.
You have copied the link to your clipboard.

Go to:


Press your E keyboard key.
You will land in a edit field box with "http://"; in that edit
In this edit box press your spacebar 1 time.
You will be in forms mode now.
Press your end key, then do a shift+home key to select the
http:// in the edit box.
Press your backspace key.
What you have done here is delete the "http://"; in the edit box.
Your cursor is still in this edit box so do a ctrl+v to paste in
the copied shortcut you did earlier.
You have pasted in the URL address in the edit box.
Press your PC cursor keyboard key to get out of forms mode.
Tab 2 times to the view source button and press enter key on
this button.

Wait a few seconds.

You will see the source code for the copied URL.

Look for http://, rtsp:// type links in the code.

Copy such links to a word processor like NotePad.

With JAWS you can use Windows key +C to copy multiple links to
the clipboard.

You may see multiple links in the code.

Open your email program.

Send an email to yourself.

In the body of the message paste the http:// links you found.

Send the message.

Open that email message you sent to yourself.

Look at the body of email message and you will notice the
http:// links you pasted are actual live links like you see in
web pages.

Go to the link with http:.

Be on that link.

Press insert+F7.
Press tab key 1 time.
Press spacebar 1 time.

Press your applications key.
Choose save target as.

Save the file to your hard drive.

Open Replay Converter to convert the file you have copied to
your hard drive to another format of your choice.

Since you do not have Real Player on yur computer this is the
way I would do it here.

There maybe another way but I don't know everything here.

Thinking a bit more here.

See if Winamp will play those RP Files for you. Are they in .m3u
or .pls?

If you can play the archived files with Winamp then Replay AV 8
can record these for you in another format like .mp3.

Just for you to know:

I have a blog at:

Hello all,

I recently downloaded a demo of Replay AV 8 and joined this
list. The station whose radio on demand archives I'm trying to
access is PBS 106.7FM. The station's website is at
and their live stream is in Windows Media, but the radio on
demand archives, unlike the live stream, are streamed in
RealPlayer and are only available to people signed up to the
station's website (which is free). After signing up to the
site you get an activation email with a link to click on (or
Enter on) to activate your account, and then you need to be
logged into the site to get to the archives. I don't wish to
download/install RealPlayer and have been told Replay AV can
still record such content (and convert it to formats such as
mp3 etc so I can listen to it in Winamp). But I don't know how
to do it - especially as I have no way of knowing the stream
has started. Is anyone on this list signed up to the station's
website and familiar with accessing the archives? Any help
including step-by-step instructions on recording them with
Replay AV would be greatly appreciated. I have successfully
recorded/captured a snippet from the live stream (the few
minutes the demo allows for). I can't remember the exact steps
I went through, but I was already tuning into the stream at
the time and I selected the station within Replay AV by
accessing the station option from the menu bar. The station
was added to the media guide after I contacted Leslie at
Applian (it's listed as "PBS 106.7"), but I don't know what
I'd do in the case of these archives. I presume they would
have a different feed any way and I'm not even sure how to get
that info (as opposed to the web address etc). A total newbie
to this, as you've probably gathered. I'm using Windows XP
Home with Jaws 8 and Internet Explorer 6. Hope someone can
