    Is there anyway to download a song from a webpage where it doesn't have the download option?

    For example the page has its own player and you can only press play or stop but that is it.
    Is there anyway to get that song?

    In firefox, you can right click on a page and view the page info. In that window, you can hit the media tab and it will show all the pics and video and let you save any of the files individually. I have never tried that with audio, but it seems likely.

    You could always plug the output cable into a recorder and snag it that way.

    What about if you can open it in Media Player but it won't let me save it. Is there any other programs that will let me save?

    It might be in your temp internet files if it has to open media player.

    If it's streaming content then you'll need some other software to record it, but I don't know offhand what to suggest.
