If you encounter a similar situation when you want to rip music from website, but do not know how to do it, you are in the right place. Here you will find three ways to rip music to your hard drive.

Since HTML5 standard has become popular there is no need to use flash-player. The direct URL of the music file will be visible in the HTML code of the web page. Just righ-click in web browser and select "View source". Press "Ctrl+F" to open a search window and enter ".mp3". Found it? Download it!

2Looking for music file in temporary internet files

If the website uses a special player to play music, then you will not find direct link to the audio file.
