So it has annoyed my for a long time that i couldn't take the recordings from tune in radio and listen/transfer them to my pc/mp3 player. this is a step by step guide on how to do it.

*important* make sure you know what format you made the recordings in (mp3/aac). just look on the right hand side of the track progress bar while recording live (see screenshot below) in this example it is recorded in aac. tune in will automatically record in mp3 format usually.

so, once you have the recording saved, connect your phone to pc via usb. navigate to your tunein folder, usually mnt/sdcard/tunein. find the recording you want to listen to/copy, it will look something like this; 20111131-074437. copy it over to your pc.

now, just add .aac or .mp3 to your file name. (.aac or .mp3 depending on what it was recorded as)

good? done! that's it. you now have your tunein recording as a readable file on your pc. if you want to remove ads/tracks in the recording, use an audio editor to do so. i use this; http://www.nch.com.au/splitter/index.html

it should be noted that for recordings 50mb+ it can be hit or miss with this method. so try to keep your recordings below about 2 hours long...

Need update
This method no longer works. Is there an updated process for exporting the recordings?

Unhappy
Hello ,

I am using Tunein for my Samsung Galaxy S2 (Android Ice Cream) and i am very happy with it .
I tryed to use the Recording for an Interview of mine.
In my screen (when the station played) i saw the *wma format.
Was exactly the same like ur attached pictured but with the wma as the format .
Recording it and i hearing it from my phone was fine.
Later i tryed to copy it and played in my PC.
I was very sad when i realized that i couldn't hear it or even opened it .
The recorded File didnt had any extation , so when i copyed to the Pc, could not recognized what program to use in order to play it.
Looking in the internet i saw several technik's but with No results . I also downloaded some wma convertes .
The problem is that Windows can not recognize the file .
When i simple change the extension to *wma (as u say in ur Post) again didnt worked.

PLz Help me ,
how i could play the file ( of my Radio Interview) in my PC and use-convert it as a common for exaple *mp3 file .

Tnk you .

I wish you a Happy New YEAR 2013

If it was streamed in wma format then thats what you have to save it as. Now, on PC vlc player can play wma files, if it doesn't for you then try installing the k-lite codec pack. that should take care of it.

Just download vlc player app from play store. It supports and plays the files once you rename them.

I tried this a year or so ago, and it failed - I used Windows Media Player, and Cool Edit Pro. Upon seeing your suggestion I tried it again, but with Audacity. So far, it works on the first few files. Will it work on the remainder? I hope so. Oh, The Hope of Audacity

Lightbulb HOW TO Play TuneIn Radio Recordings
TuneIn Radio Pro makes recordings in whatever format (MP3, AAC, WMA, etc) a source streams in,
but does not create legal container files, making recordings (deliberately) hard to play outside of TuneIn.
To determine the format of a given source, start a manual recording and note the format shown on the TuneIn screen.
To play a recording, copy the file from the TuneIn folder on the device to a computer,
and then rename the file to give it an appropriate file extension; e.g., .mp3 for MP3 audio.
The file should now be playable in VLC Media Player.
To play in other players less forgiving of file format issues, it will need to be converted with a tool like foobar2000 or Audacity.

^This, a simple batch file for Windows that will convert anything VLC can play to 128k MP3 can be done using something like this:
Code:
@echo off

:infile
set /p infile=Input File: 
set /p outfile=Output File: 
echo.
echo Converting...

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" "%infile%" --sout=#transcode{vcodec=none,acodec=mp3,ab=128,channels=2,samplerate=44100}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=mp3,dst="%output%"}} vlc://quit

echo Done!
echo.
goto infile
