burn cds off the internet for freeEveryone loves music right?

There is an inherent value found in the relationships that people have around and through music. Unless you’ve been sleeping for a while (like 12 years), finding and listening to good music has become an increasingly social experience. It’s really simple, it goes something like this: “Hey, I found this song online, it’s really groovy. You should listen to it too… and here you can have it for free.”

This is of course great news for people on a limited budget who really love music. It is also great news for the artists who experience an incredible amount of joy and creative fulfillment when they discover that hundreds of thousands of people all around the globe are enjoying their music.

Web savvy companies and artists are changing their business models and offering great music for free online. There are plenty of sites available where you can download songs and burn CDs for free. If you don’t have CD burning software, just click the orange button in the top right corner of the page and download RealPlayer. It comes with free CD burning software.


Looking for free music you can download and then burn CDs for free? Many sites such as Google Play offers a free song of the day. It’s a great way to discover new music and artists online. Just check the site daily to see if it’s a song you want to download. In the meantime, we’ve rounded up websites where you can download free music and burn CDS off the Internet for free.

Amazon’s Free Songs:

Amazon hosts 1,000’s of free MP3 songs on its site. You can either play them straight from Amazon’s cloud or download them straight to your computers library. Then burn a CD with them and take it with you to listen in the car.

Discovering new music can be invigorating. Why not take it with you wherever you go? Use RealPlayer to transfer music on your computer to your phone and listen to it on the go.

The Live Music Archive:

The Internet Archive and teamed up to provide as many live concerts as possible in an easy to download format.

This is a great site for video makers and podcasters to visit to find free music. One out of 6 tracks out of the thousands of tracks available on dig.ccmixter have already been used as soundtracks.

The musicians who are part of this community are committed to making modern and satisfying music with a strong cinematic vibe. All the music here is licensed under Creative Commons. If you want to use the music in a video, you’ll need to provide a credit to the artist.

The Free Music Archives

Run by the WFMU, a famous freeform radio station in the USA, the Free Music Archive is seen as an extension of the origins of radio, created specifically for the Internet. Throughout history radio has offered people access to free music and this is just an online continuation of the practice.

This is an interactive library of high-quality legal downloads. How you use the music downloaded from the site depends solely on the rights holders of each individual track. This is a great site for podcasters, radio producers, video producers, remix artists or simply music lovers looking for new sounds.

The sense of altruistic sharing between artists online is growing with the formation of online communities to facilitate the creative and artistic exchanges. New and exciting business models are springing up that challenge the old system of simply selling a product in units.

You will always be able to pay for music, but you will probably always be able to find a place where you can listen to it for free. It’s a great way to discover new music.

Hi, My wonderful husband of 46 years recently passed. He asked me to record a CD for him – I promised him I would, but time ran out on us. (I was a professional singer for several years.) There is a song I am particularly fond of, by Engelbert Humperdinck called “How Do I Stop Loving You.” It is available at and also on YouTube. My problem is that I do not know how to download it and burn it to a CD. Could you please help me? Could you record the CD for me? I, of course, would pay you whatever. I’m not very savvy about computers and explanations just seem to confuse me. I want to place the CD where he now lies and a copy within a Legacy Album I am creating for him. I would be so appreciative.
Sincerely, Grace

This site sucks no offense but I remember back in the day when I could use the real player that already had music on it and it would down load the songs if I liked them and choose them. Something different is going on now at this time. I don’t understand the nation needs it so that we can get music from the the player and not just videos those are hard to put on to cds but if you had it like you used to then people would have 100′s of thousands songs with titles and artists they could choose what they wanted and then they could save it to the computer then eventually go through them again and make all kinds of cds why not now. IF you know a way of doing it then email me I hope you have an answer. SO many of the sites are false and want to charge it should be free. I want to be happy

21 RealPlayer Team September 18, 2013 at 1:02 pm

Some file requires Plus feature to play/convert. Try installing QuickTime/iTunes to enable the necessary codec for RealPlayer to play/convert .mp4 files.

1: QuickTime :


2: iTunes

After installing QuickTime/iTunes, try playing/converting the files through RealPlayer.

If this doesn’t work, please send an email to, include a brief description of the issue, copy and paste the link to this thread within the email for further assistance.

Does realplayer cloud let me download free music so I can make Cd’s? also, I tried viewing a video and i could not view it although i have adobe installed, what do I do?

25 RealPlayer Team April 29, 2014 at 5:43 pm

Yes. You can download videos from popular web sites like YouTube, Metacafe, DailyMotion, etc and burn them as an audio to an audio CD for free. By default, RealPlayer can play RealAudio, RealVideo, and MPEG files. For a list of supported file types, visit the Media Types page in RealPlayer Help. ( It can also play other media types if the appropriate plug-ins and codecs (compression/decompression systems) are installed.

However, RealPlayer cannot play files that your computer does not recognize. Try installing free codec pack like Klite and QuickTime Player.

Klite Codec Pack:


Still if the issue persists, please send an email to

Can I transfer stuff from an older version of RealPlayer to the cloud RealPlayer?

29 RealPlayer Team June 12, 2014 at 8:30 pm

Yes. You can import media files from older RealPlayer to RealPlayer Cloud. If you are on the same computer, follow this link to import media files:

If you are using different PC, you’ll need to transfer the media files to external hard drive or thumb drive first and then import the media files to RealPlayer Cloud.
