So, how do you record Real Player streams?

So, what sort of person needs Audio Hijack Pro? Well, it does a few things, but the key one is this. It grabs the audio output of any other Mac OS X program, and then records it to MP3 (or AIFF, for those with large hard drives) in real time. You can also enhance the sound using all manner of post-processing. If you want.

But if you're like me, you've spent the last year looking at all manner of tempting online audio streams and internet radio stations, and thinking 'gosh, I'd really like to have some of that stuff available to listen to on the iPod; but it's just so hard to convert streaming audio to MP3.' There you go. I can't, off the top of my head, think of a more life-enhancing bit of shareware.
