Editors' Review

+

Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder streamlines the process of downloading music from various online sources for later listening. Its intuitive interface guides you through the process, so you'll have some great playlists of your favorite music in no time.

Pros

Intuitive process: All you have to do to start recording your favorite music through the program is to hit the "Record" button. Once you've done that, the program can automatically begin recording once you're on an online radio site. You can also create playlists of music videos on sites like YouTube, and then just record them as they play.

Automatic tagging: Every song you record will be tagged automatically with information including the song name, artist, and album title. This makes all of your music easy to keep track of and requires no extra work on your part.

Cons

Trial limitations: This app offers a free seven-day trial, but even that comes with some limitations. In fact, the program will only identify the first ten songs you record, so if you don't purchase the full version after that point, you'll be left with a bunch of nameless tracks.

Bottom Line

Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder is a quality program with a good set of features. It runs smoothly, and its accessible interface makes the app manageable for users of all experience levels. A full license costs $29.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1.

"No break in tracks until I stopped it at 24 mins"

January 19, 2015  |  By da3hill

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

Enormous opportunity exists for an app developer to get this right...because this app doesn't. You might think all the great apps have been created - think again.
In it's favor: Rejected all the 'crapware' installs and then clicked on a separately downloaded track, and Itunes opened to play it just fine - so it did not take over as default audio player

Cons

Does not recognize separate tracks, does not pick up commercials despite being set to the default settings (autosplit if silence more than 300ms). One of the songs it did not recognize (unknown artist) was Elvis Costello's "Red shoes".

Summary

Ran the 24 min recording in audacity - and of course it is easy to see the commercials and edit them out. But why pay $$ if you have to take this extra step? If someone could pair up Audacity and Shazam with audio streaming....we might really have something - Please, app developers out there ??

"Would be great, if it worked"

November 17, 2014  |  By ollylambert

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

Does occasionally succeed in recording streamed music, but....

Cons

Infuriatingly riddled with bugs.
The track identifier rarely works, with random artwork being generated, inconsistency of album names, and regular mix ups when the artist is given as the composer and vice versa. Regular hanging on PC. Track identifier works, then doesn't, requiring a completely reinstall. Annoyingly the developers seem to know about this and yet...

Summary

Bloody annoying and not worth buying until they've sorted it out.

"WARNING: Full of spyware and viruses!"

January 07, 2014  |  By CoPatriot

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

It works for 10 songs for free. After that, you have to register and pay.

Cons

It downloaded all kinds of malware to my computer. When I went to Amazon, I kept getting all kinds of pop-ups. I had to run 2 virus scanners to remove all of it! WARNING!!

"WARNING DO NOT DOWNLOAD!"

October 14, 2013  |  By beastiebaz

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

There are no Pros for this program, download at your peril

Cons

I tried the 7 day free trial first
1st problem is on the 7 day free trial you can only identify 10 tracks you have downloaded, so what is the point in a 7 day trial?
It downloaded 10 tracks from a streaming site, but incorrectly identified 3 of them [wrong song and/or wrong artist]Tracks worked OK on identifying on Shazam on iPhone so they were not obscure tracks. Customer service in China? could not help, so I uninstalled. Worse as soon as I uninstalled my wifi internet stack was altered and todate I am still unable to get it running again on the laptop I used.

I contacted customer service in China? and they said reinstall

Summary

I cannot believe the good reviews for this product.....it just does not work properly, giving incorrect info in 30% of downloads
and probably screwing my computers register.

"Gets the job done, but ..."

August 31, 2013  |  By h_alamo

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

Does what is it supposed to do. The trial period was fine, I decided to purchase and works as advertised. Very intuitive. The auto-tag works great (not perfect). BUT...

Cons

.. Like DSunhammer said, I'm glad they didn't get my bank account. The software totally takes over your system and OS. I was able to reject all crapware offers during the install process but still it has a brain of its own. It becomes your default software to open video and audio files. Changing it on the windows preferences only affects that session until the next Windows reboot. Takes longer than itunes or WMP to load so it would definitely NOT be my preferred player.
It affects your audio drivers, volume, delays audio and more while open.

Summary

If you know what you are doing, it is recommended. Otherwise, watch out.

"Blatant Mal/Spyware"

May 23, 2013  |  By DSunhammer

Shame on c/net for not checking software they post.

"Can't scroll the terms and conditions page."

April 02, 2013  |  By jposborne--2008

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

Won't download until terms and conditions page is fixed.

Cons

Won't download until terms and conditions page is fixed.

Summary

Sounds like great software but because of not being able to scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions page I have deleted the program. I have sent e-mail to C-net with no reply. I do not want to agree to anything that I can't see the bottom of. Their phone is in China and I will not be calling them. I get no reply to e-mail.
If anyone can give me a clue please e-mail me jposborne@aol.com

Updated on Apr 25, 2013

After downloading I found out all the features do now work on the trial version, so I purchased the software. The tagging of the songs still does not work, and the chat line never answers. I have tried email and it is several days before I get a reply. I am afraid to call the phone number on their web page because it is in China and I don't want to pay the charges.
