Loooking for components that do streaming audio format conversion

Posted on 2007-08-05
Last Modified: 2013-12-03
In a project that listens to incoming audio stream on the Internet in Windows Media Audio, and is required to save it to disk as an MP3 file, I am looking for an ActiveX (or regular COM server) that would do the actual conversion.  Would like to get recommendations for such a tool. Any links to articles, code snippets in this area will be most welcome

    Thanks a lot.  As a complete newbie to audio programming (But having been a C++ Windows programmer for 15 years), I think I would need a general overview that would put thing is order in my mind (e.g. what directX, directSound, directShow).

    Specifically, I would like to know what's the flow of data and process when knowing the URL of an Internet Radio Station, I connect with it, and get the data.  Do I use plain Winsock library calls or a higher level library?

    Thanks for the articles.  I will wait a little more.
