It seems that someone found out a way to create download links to the mp3 files that one can listen to on the profile pages of the bands that have a MySpace website. The script to decode the MySpace url and extract the mp3 links is working well and uses Ajax for ease of use.
All you need to to is supply a website or profile page of a band and the script automatically decodes the information and displays links to all songs that can be listened to on the website. MySpace randomly generates the links every minute which means that sometimes the decode button has to be activated more than once.
You are free to provide the short url of the bands page (ie. www.myspace.com/colbiecaillat) or the long one with parameters which leads to the same website (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=8777613). Both links can be decoded and the songs can be downloaded by right-clicking them and selecting to save the link as..
Due to popular demand I uploaded the script to my web space. Use it to download songs from MySpace.
The script has stopped working and we have removed it from our server again. Please note that it does not seem possible to download music from MySpace right now using a script, browser extension or other program.
What you can do however, what works all the time, is to use an audio recorder to record all audio on your system. While not really practicable, it provides you in theory with options to record any song or audio that is playing on your computer regardless of source or protection it uses.
A program that you can use for this task is Audacity, a free open source audio recorder and editor for Windows, Mac and Linux systems.
