View Full Version : Recording Mixer in Linux

08-07-2011, 02:44 PM
I have a friend who runs Linux and wants to be able to record (when playing) the soundtrack of YouTube videos.

I have helped him install Cool Edit for Linux, a sound recording and editing programme. I use the Windows version and have no problems recording audio when it is playing online, but I can do that because I have enabled the input on my soundcard using Windows Recording Mixer.

My problem is knowing what is the equivalant of the Windows Recording Mixer in Linux and where do I go to access it?

Thanks for your help.:thanks

Probably be easier using firefox and an addon (if they work). Then download the whole song / video

If you wanted to capture the complete video from youtube then VLC player should do it.

Theres a Windows & Linux Version, so I assume both work the same. Just tried it in Windows and it worked nice :) (AND ITS FREE)

JDownloader is great for getting MP3s from youtube vids.
Works on all platforms.
