I’ve had my doubts about posting this information because quite honestly I’m a big fan of Favtape.com and I don’t want to see them get in trouble and/or close. That being said, I suppose it can’t hurt that much to put this information out there. Here’s a quick and simple way to download any song that you can play on Favtape.com
- Use Firefox (it’s not required but we all know that when you use IE god will kill kittens).
- Go to Favtape.com (duh) and find a song that you want.
- Click the name of the song to begin playing it.
- When you hover over the name of the song you should see something like this in the status bar: http://favtape.com/play/**Artist**/**Song**.mp3Â (**Artist** and **Song* obviously replaced with the appropriate information). Click on the image to the right if you don’t understand what I just said.
- Now you can’t simply right click and “Save link as”. You actually can’t right click at all. So how do you get the MP3 file?
- Method 1 – no tweaking involved:
- Open a new tab in Firefox (control + t).
- Click + hold the Artist – Song Name and drag this onto the new tab you just created.
- That’s it! The song should not start to download, but you’ll need to rename it because it’ll save as “fetch.mp3”.
- Method 2 – tweaking the Firefox settings:
- In Firefox goes to Tools –> Options
- Go to the “Content” tab
- Find “Disable or replace context menus”. Uncheck this box.
- Click “OK” and then “OK” again.
- Now you can right click on the Artist – Song Name and select “Save link as”.
- That’s it! You can now just save the MP3 file we saw in the status bar earlier.
- Important Note: You may want to re-enable the “Disable or replace context menus” option because many web applications use this functionality.
