Hi Faisal Aslam! Definitely YES! There are several free online recorders available. I personally use Acethinker's Audio Recorder It just free. Since this records your computer's system sound, you can record audios out of videos saved on your computer. I also use this to record audios when I am streaming online. I used to visit Jango to listen and record songs when I'm too lazy to download them. I hope this information helps.

Dear Faisal Aslam

If you want to record audio independent of what's playing, you can use pulseaudio. Example program: gnome-sound-recorder: Record from input : Capture

Open "pavucontrol", tabpage "Recording" and assign gnome-sound-recorder to the monitor output of your soundcard. Everything played will be recorded.

Good luck

thanks, very much. that help me in simpleScreenRecorder, my videos were recording without sound, I thought "built-in Audio analog stereo" option was the right and I didn't realize of "monitor of built-in audio analog stereo". Changing it let me record video with desktop audio.

Recording of sounds may look strange but I think it worth it, Normally when am streaming from sites like 123 Movies. You may need to record the audio for clarity

I'd recommend Acethinker Audio Recorder which I have been using for many years. It is an online tool that lets you record audio playing right from your web browser. You don't have to install any additional plug-ins or add-ons. Free and easy to use.

Hm. I never needed to record my sound, but i remember when I used Mirillis Action! game recorder, and was irritated because it recorded the system's sound (I wanted to have the video completely silent), because i forgot to change my settings. You can try it, it has 30 day's trial - but no limit when it comes to how long do you want record your audio.

Windows only.
