So I have a bit of esssssspionage.. or maybe it's counter-essssspionage.. that I have been charged with carrying out. Suffice to say I'm on the side of good - promise. :)
I need to gather some evidence, including taking video/audio recordings of video playing on a website. I've found a couple of freeware recorders, one of which seems to work very nicely video-wise, but neither of which are capturing audio. Something about my laptop not having the option to turn on stereo-max or something?
To be clear, this is just legitimate info gathering for a legal issue, not an attempt to rip video off a site.
I've tried various recommended fixes and haven't gotten anywhere with that, but now i wonder if I can just run a cable from my audio out to my mic jack, feeding the computer's sound back into itself, and record the audio like that (assuming the mic input works, which I haven't got a mic here to test).
Does that sound feasible, or is sleep deprivation frying my brain? Speaking of which.. sleep is way overdue.. will check back in the morning.
