Hi folks

I wonder if anyone can help me. I’m trying to download a podcast from a particular website and evrytime I try to use the save target as to save it.

It always being saved as html file and not as mp3.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Anthony

What happens if you just click on the link that you are attempting to download? Perhaps it is a show notes page that then has a link to the multi-media file. Another possibility is that the link you aare clicking on starts a HTML5 player for the podcast.

 

Usually in the case of an HTML5 player there will also be a download link.

Some sites won't let you save the file using save target as.  Save target as is described by some people as the way to save everything.  It's not.  You are saving the actual link, the way that site is organized.  Press enter on the play link and let it start to play in whatever browser you are using, if you are using Firefox or Chrome.  Then, when play begins, use the command control s to open a save dialog.  Use that dialog to save the audio file.  I'm not sure that will work in Internet Explorer but if you are using Internet Explorer, I think it will either open the save dialog or it will open Windows Media Player or some other program.  You can tell us what happens and we might be able to tell you how to save the file from the player.

Either your mouse pointer is not actually in the right position to activate the link (if you are using right click, this may well be the case), or, as has already been said, the link takes to you to a page, and isn’t actually an mp3 download. Hit enter and see what happens. I personally much prefer the way Firefox handles downloads….

Some sites actively prohibit downloading of their content. I've noticed this for copyright material, where you can listen but not store locally. there are of course ways around many of these but I'd be a bit worried about mentioning any here except the obvious one of virtunual recorder.

Tell us the site, often they have a different link to download to the play one.
There could be many reasons apart from copyright, it may well be that the files are not in the same place all the time and the html inteermediary page then redirects the user to the right place. Examining some of these downloaded small html files can give a clue to where the file actually is stored but not always.

Please provide full links.  You can go to the page you are having a problem with, in this case the page where the link is you are trying to follow, copy the address to the clipboard from the address bar, then paste it into the message.  That way, people can go to the same page immediately. 
 
The way you are doing it now, people have to verify the address of the site with an Internet search, go to the home page, then look for and go to what they think is the page you are having a problem with.

I looked at the cite.  First, never assume that an audio link leads directly to the audio when you try save target and it doesn't work.  If you follow the link from the home page that says podcast, you are taken to a different web page from which you listen to the podcast.  Not everything that calls itself a podcast can be downloaded.  When you used save target as, you were saving the link to the page you need to go to.  Once you get there, you will see something, but I don't know just what because it may depend on the browser and screen-reader being used.  The combination of NVDA and Firefox shows, partway down the page, a line that says, web player and below that, a line that says application.
Don't down arrow past the line that says web player.  Start tabbing.  You will see a play button.  Press enter on it.  The podcast will start to play.  Using the space bar on the button won't work.  Never assume how things are laid out on web pages.  If something doesn't work and there is a link to follow, such as in this case to the podcast, follow it and see what happens.  Save target as works at times and it doesn't at other times.

That's nice but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try what I said.  You can listen online and you will have such problems in future with various audio streams unless you learn other ways of working with audio sites that have podcasts than just use save target as.

I'm not giving you a hard time.  I'm going to start pointing this out when I see people do this.  I hope it will make not just this list more efficient, but any other lists people who see these messages are on less cluttered as well. 
 
Please don't send thank you messages to everyone who responds.  Thank people in advance in the original message with a general statement such as, thanks in advance for any help or thanks in advance for any information.  Or, if you wish, if you send a final message saying that the problem has been solved, you can thank people in that message.  This is standard e-mail etiquette.  If everyone thanked everyone, the list, and any such list, would be unusable.  Two thirds of messages would be thank you messages.

Please provide full links.  You can go to the page you are having a problem with, in this case the page where the link is you are trying to follow, copy the address to the clipboard from the address bar, then paste it into the message.  That way, people can go to the same page immediately. 

 

The way you are doing it now, people have to verify the address of the site with an Internet search, go to the home page, then look for and go to what they think is the page you are having a problem with.

Tell us the site, often they have a different link to download to the play
one.
 There could be many reasons apart from copyright, it may well be that the
files are not in the same place all the time and the html inteermediary page
then redirects the user to the right place. Examining some of these
downloaded small html files can give a clue to where the file actually is
stored but not always.

What I described about how to listen on this site isn't standard.  How this site works in that respect might be new to a lot of people, even if they use the Internet regulartly. 
 
I didn't know how to work with the player until I experimented.  I pressed enter on the word application but nothing happpened.  I pressed enter on the word web in the phrase web player but nothing happened.  I then tried tabbing instead of down arrowing and I found the buttons I discussed.  I tried various things without having any idea if any would work. This approach did.

That's nice but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try what I said.  You can listen online and you will have such problems in future with various audio streams unless you learn other ways of working with audio sites that have podcasts than just use save target as.

Some sites actively prohibit downloading of their content. I've noticed this
for copyright material, where you can listen but not store locally. there
are of course ways around many of these but I'd be a bit worried about
mentioning any here except the obvious one of virtunual recorder.

Some sites won't let you save the file using save target as.  Save target as

is described by some people as the way to save everything.  It's not.  You
are saving the actual link, the way that site is organized.  Press enter on
the play link and let it start to play in whatever browser you are using, if

you are using Firefox or Chrome.  Then, when play begins, use the command
control s to open a save dialog.  Use that dialog to save the audio file.
I'm not sure that will work in Internet Explorer but if you are using
Internet Explorer, I think it will either open the save dialog or it will
open Windows Media Player or some other program.  You can tell us what
happens and we might be able to tell you how to save the file from the
player.
