  • (2023-10-13, v:1.1.2) Cheri: can't hear the recordings on my media player
    it plays but I can't hear it.
  • (2023-10-12, v:1.1.2) Alan Sargent: time limit unlimit?
    Really hope that there will be a workaround for the time limit. Want to use it for recording stream of several hours. Audacity can do that, but it can't ignore sounds or alerts from other apps. Even just dumping a sequence of 20 minute files would be OK, I can join them later myself.
  • (2023-09-23, v:1.1.2) Paulo Salvador: Dúvida

  • (2023-05-07, v:1.1.2) Babak Kamali: Where are the output files?
    They are not in Chrome download folder if this is what you mean by download folder. I am not a newbie. I have been a programmer, project manage and CTO. If I can't find it easily, you should amend your documentation at least. I look forward to a response.

    Hello - Chrome Audio Capture is capturing the audio, but when it opens the tab for encoding it, the 'encoding progress' bar is not moving, and nothing happens after this.

    Hello there! As many other users of your extension (which works really great when you don't forget to save...) I have forgotten to save the audio file. I have looked into the Cache folder of Chrome and it seems that I have located a file that could have the audio. Is it possible to encode it as the extension does? Thanks in advance!

    Hi I just started using the extension and it's been helpful. One thing though - when I accidentally close the window I am recording (which happens most of the times actually because I close the tab the moment a video conference ends), is there a way to autosave the audio for the closed tab? So far I have not been able to do it. Thanks.

  • (2020-05-20, v:1.1.1) Mark Guthrie: No sound

  • (2020-05-19, v:1.1.1) Connor Dietrich: I am unable to save a cancel captures once I start.
