recording audio playing through speakers

leave a comment »

wanted to record flash audio playing in a web browser.

Go into the terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
then when that’s finished type:
then start your audio and in another terminal type:
arecord -c 2 -f cd test

note that the pavucontrol (PulseAudio Volume Control) did not need to be running while recording (or loaded before or anything), but I did have to change the default Input Device from “Internal Audio Analog Stereo” to “Monitor of Internal Audio Analog Stereo”.
