I am trying to save an asf streaming wma audio file (of a foreign language pronunciation) as an mp3 using the following method but no luck :
A resultant mp3 file with 0 bytes is created but cannot be played. The VLC is the portable version 2.2.4. VLC has no issue playing the stream.
This is the link : http://184.108.40.206:80/audio/E133195.wma?MSWMExt=.asf
Pls advise if this method still works or if I needed extra codecs or if there are other ways of saving the stream.
I am trying to learn a foreign language and would like to play local versions of the pronunciation instead of always needing to connect to the internet.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks very much for your reply.
I was able to download about 7 individual clips successfully using the command line then after that vlc kept crashing.
I rebooted, removed the portable folder, re-unzipped and tried again but still no luck. Error is :
Oops: VLC media player just crashed.
Would you like to send a bug report to the developers team?
I have no problem running vlc gui.
Is there a limit to the number of clips that can be saved this way?
EDIT : just tried again. While vlc did not crash, an mp3 was created with 0 bytes and when I played it, the error is : Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file.
