    I came across this problem once and found some instructions on the 'net which described how to add the "Stereo Mix" feature back by editing the drivers INF file IIRC.

    but don't seem to have an option to change to wave or stereo mix
    Sometimes it needs to be selected in your advanced audio settings or jsut use tape to tape - speaker out from one comp to line in on another comp

    regards

    I restored the Stereo Mix option by installing Intel generic audio drivers for the motherboard audio on a Dell.

    Before that I used a cable to connect the front headphone socket to the rear line in socket and that worked too.

    Although you have done it now, you may want to give StreamTransport a try if you need to do this again in the future. I used it yesterday to download a radio programme from iPlayer and it worked perfectly. It can also be used to download videos from sites like YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion etc. and ones which use the RTMP protocol like iPlayer and Demand Five.

    It's very easy to use. Once you have found the audio or video clip using the built-in web browser, just highlight the relevant URL displayed in the lower-half of the window and click the Download button on the right. After it has finished downloading from iPlayer you will end up with a FLV file. Although the next step is entirely optional, I would recommend extracting the audio from the FLV wrapper using FLVExtract since the AAC file it produces will be compatible with a wider range of programs and devices. The extension can be changed to MP4 or M4A.

    The advantages to using StreamTransport compared to the method in Accura2000's post above are the you only need one PC, you can do other things while it's downloading, you don't lose any quality or capture other unintended noises (such as sounds from Windows programs) and you won't have the edit the file afterwards to remove any gaps.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but that program doesn't appear to do anything that you can't do with Audacity (for free). It also has one of the worst GUIs I have ever seen.

    Rip audio from BBC's iPlayer

    One year old question. If you are looking for ways to rip audio from BBC Radio on Windows, you probably could try to use a sound recorder. Like what is discussed on the above, you need to play radio and then choose to record from stereo mix.

    ^ Why buy Streaming Audio Recorder when programs like Radio Downloader and iPlayer Automator are free?

    Has anyone considered that maybe the reason that there's no podcast is because it would breach the copyright arrangements of the piece to offer it as a download, therefore all of the ripping/downloading processes are illegal, or do we not worry about the legalities of things like this any more?

    Dont know re legal but Audacity and an audio cable between line in and speaker out will record anything playing through the speaker socket simple but true
