This extension captures the audio on the current tab and saves the output file on your computer when the capture is complete

Image from store Chrome Audio Capture
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. Limit can be bypassed, but it is not recommended as more testing is required to determine the maximum time for lower quality settings.

    From time to time, after saving, short pauses appear in the saved file, which are perceived as crackling. What can be the reason?
  • (2020-07-05, v:1.1.1) Gerson Pinto: Not working
    I have two pcs and the extension not record nothing. The file recorded is mute (no sound). Windows 10 and last chrome. Maybe the app not access the microphone or sound system? Other extension ask me for permissions (mic and cam for example). Your extension don`t ask for permissions...

  • (2020-06-01, v:1.1.1) Eden Durant: Recover canceled audio capture
    I accidentally pressed to cancel the audio capture instead of stopping it to save. Is there any way to recover the audio from a temp file? I have not recorded any additional captures since and I thought that the data might be in a temp file somewhere. Thank you.
  • (2020-05-20, v:1.1.1) Mark Guthrie: No sound
    This is probably my issue. I have a new chromebook. The recording is captured but no sound. I don't believe it is the replay as I can listen to YouTube, for example. Perhaps my microphone is off...but I don't know how to check.
  • (2020-05-19, v:1.1.1) Connor Dietrich: I am unable to save a cancel captures once I start.
    I am unable to save a cancel captures once I start. I can rarely ever actually capture an audio file. When the timer runs out on the capture I have to uninstall this extension to unfreeze it.
  • (2020-05-14, v:1.1.1) Sam Siegel: Ctrl + Shift + S to start capture on current tab
    I start the recording and then press, Ctrl + Shift + S to start audio capture. Unfortunately, Ctrl + Shift + S refreshes the Chrome tab and doesn't start Chrome Audio Capture. I am not fast enough to start the recording and then left-click on the extension to start the capture. Suggestions? Thanks

  • (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.
