Description from store Chrome Audio Capture is a Chrome extension that allows users to capture any audio playing on the current tab. Multiple tabs can be captured simultaneously. Captures can be saved as either .mp3 or .wav files. Users will have the option to mute tabs that are currently being captured. To begin capture on a tab simply click on the Chrome Audio Capture icon and use the interface or hotkeys to start and stop the capture. Once the capture is stopped or when the time limit is reached, a new tab will be opened for you to save and name your audio file. Make sure to save your file before closing the tab, otherwise the file will be lost! Check the options page for different output file formats and other features! If you enjoyed the extension, please leave a review on the extension page! Please report any bugs or suggestions using the support tab of the extension page. Note: Currently captures are limited to 20 minutes due to Chrome memory constraints.

  • (2019-12-22) Andre: So far it's doing everything I want it to do very well! I'm super impressed as I've wanted something like this for a long while but only just now found it.
  • (2019-12-20) Archibald Tuttle: Works as described, well! One must be judicious in its use, refraining from ripping off sound tracks that should be paid for. On the other hand, many things are not available by any other means. Further, if you want good quality, you need source material other than MP3 files - I know, I'm an audiophool and a snob. If you have a really good system anyone, anyone, should be able to hear the difference. So when tracks become available I buy FLACs and similar.

    where are the files saved in W10 ? There is no option of specifying a location in any settings very poor interface imo
  • (2019-10-12, v:1.1.1) ghgiaoer: suggestion for the app
    I really do love this app. It has been one of the most helpful things ever on the internet. One thing that happens to me sometimes when I have a long clip is it is not done processing to mp3 and I think it is done, it takes a long time, the red bar has become very long and I am in a hurry and not paying close attention, I click on the button to download and it is the close button instead!!! Oh this is very sad when this happens, I have to start all over. It would be lovely if when it is not done processing and you click close, it gives you a warning, do you mean to close this? and you can save yourself from yourself. Or another idea would be to make the close button red and the download button green. This would require way less code. Thank you.

  • (2019-04-23, v:1.1.1) Richard Amster: No audio in captured file.
    I just tried this for the first time on my Windows 10 PC. There is no audio in the capture file - it is silent. Earlier today I used the app on my chromebook and it worked fine. Any thoughts?

  • (2019-02-12, v:1.1.1) Ross Koning: Snap Crackle Pop = Chrome Audio Capture
    I'm capturing a 3-minute audio clip. The original audio sounds perfect even with headphones and volume cranked, but the Chrome Audio Capture app somehow inserts lots of very obvious clicks, crackles, and snaps into the resulting audio file that it creates. I've tried the mp3 and the wav file formats with identical results. There are too many to use Sound Studio to remove them all. I LOVE the idea of this app and could use this often, but the degraded audio quality prevents it from being useful to me. Is there a fix?
  • (2019-01-23, v:1.1.1) Recorded audio is silent
    I'm able to record audio on various websites successfully. But when I use the plugin the save audio file is silent. This is using a chromebook and not just the chrome browser. Is there something I need to do to get this to work? It seems very simple, there's just no audio in the saved file.
  • (2018-11-26, v:1.1.1) Lori: No sound
    I get no sound when I save
