    I see your an engineer, and I'm a noob, so if this doesn't apply, disregard.
    Try downloading jack or qjack and routing the sound to go directly from the web browser to the recorder, by bypassing the system as the output of the browser.

    Disclaimer: If you can't download it, you probably want to make sure its not copyrighted before you try and copy it.

    Hi genericuser,

    I found the solution. It is rather simple just setting
    Code:
    Record from Input [Volume]
    Record as [Voice, Lossless (WAV audio)]
    Now recording works.
