Legal issues aside. Those file are DRM "protected" WMA files. Due to restrictions from Microsoft on the format they bypass Winamp's Output and DSP (like SHOUTcast) plugins. If you want to play those, you need to use "Soundcard" input on the Input tab. (Set the Recording Mixer to "What U Hear," "Wave Mix" or "Stereo Mix")

Not without further quality loss. And the only real way is to play it, and record what is being played.

OK, I tried using Tunebite to record one of the files intoan mp3, and I cannot really hear a significant difference. I am sure there is, but i can't notice it.

My question is, sinc emost people will be listening to my radio station at their computers, and not on elaborate stereo system, could I use the converted files on my radio station?

I'm looking for some opinions from people who do, and whether they notice a differenc ein quality once the song ha sbeen recorded to mp3.

Thanks much!

could go with the stream what you hear and use your drm protected player to stream the songs....

Or you could go with two sound cards... have the drm software output into the input of another and have winamp stream the input line.

The few songs that I stream from my iTunes drm collection I have converted to audio cds, and re-ripped them as drm free mp3's.

I never suggested circumventing copyright laws though. I did this because I own it and I wanted to stream it and drm got in the way once again.

Ya don't actually "own" the music you have downloaded from those services. You are licensing the use of the music under their terms of where and how it can be played.
