To download and burn to CD-R the compressed digital audio files distributed via, you must first download the necessary software. In the software section of the website (aka GreenSite), you will find download links and documentation for all required software. All software we've suggested in this section can be used for free!

To download Shorten files from FTP servers, you will need an FTP client. We very strongly suggest SmartFTP, a free and easy-to-use FTP client for Windows 95/98/Me and NT/2000 users.

To md5check and convert Shorten (SHN) to and from WAV files with Windows, we suggest the mkw Audio Compression Tool.

Once you've converted Shorten (SHN) files to WAV, you'll need to burn the WAV files to audio disc. You may either use the software that came with your CD-R drive, or use Feurio!®, an easy to use shareware software package designed specifically for burning audio CD-R's.

If you want to play Shorten files on your computer in real-time (without converting to WAV), we highly suggest Shnamp, the Shorten plugin for Winamp® for Windows users, or xmms-shn for Linux users.

We have made every attempt in this section to help make the download and installation process of software as painless as possible. If you have any suggestions for making GreenSite easier to use, please email The Server Team. Thanks! | software
