    I just downloaded a song from last.fm that was a full song stream but not downloadable, and no, I didn't capture the audio stream via Audacity or the like, nor did I do anything involving temporary internet data folders. Just some code-reading and a little trick I figured out without hacking anything. So, just so everyone knows, most if not all last.fm streaming songs *CAN* be yours at 128kbps quality.

    if your on a mac open it in safari then look at the activity window.

    The current file loading is the song.. pretty easy.

    Otherwise you can just look at the activity of any browser on any platform and download the files.

    Your trick isn't exactly difficult.

    nothing that goes through your browser can be fully protected. Nothing can scape a print screen or monitor video recording or audio recording software for that matter. Although in most cases all u need to find is the URL of the file being streamed.
