Sometimes, you may want to save an audio on web browsers like Chrome, Safari or other browsers on computer. It might be an attractive background music, an audiobook that can't downloaded or some other audio files.

Recording audio on Chrome is not a difficult task as long as you get a Chrome audio recorder. Next, we will show you how to use an audio recorder for Chrome to grab audio from web page.


Get A Chrome Audio Recorder to Record Audio on Chrome

What if I told you there is a program that can record all the audio from the browser in almost lossless sound quality, and the format of the audio is optional? Well, recently I tried using the recorder to record an audiobook on Chrome. It works fairly well than the other recorders I used before. It's called VideoSolo Screen Recorder. From its name, we know it can record the computer screen. Actually, it can also record audio only. Whatever sound that coming out from the computer can be recorded, including the browser audio of course. In this article, I will teach how to record audio from the browser with this program.

Step 1. Enable the "Audio Recorder" Option for Recording Audio

Run the program. Select "Audio Recorder" because we just need to record audio with no picture.

Step 2. Adjust the System Sound and Output Settings

• Adjust the system sound. You can adjust it in your operating system, or you can slide the slide bar directly in VideoSolo Screen Recorder. While your adjusting, you can play a video to feel whether the recording volume is appropriate.

• If you only want to record the web browser sound, do not want to record the sound of yourself and the external environment, you must remember to turn off the button of "Microphone".

Adjust Audio Settings

• The default audio recording format is MP3. MP3 is a very common audio format but if you want to change, you can click on "More settings - Output". There are WMA, M4A and AAC format optional. The default quality is "High", you can adjust to a higher quality according to your requirements. This software offers a lossless option that gives you the perfect browser audio recording experience.

Step 3. Press "REC" and Mark Down the Hotkey if You Hide the Float Bar

• Press "REC". A pop-up box will remind you that you can use hotkeys to control the record. Better be warned that you can mark down on a note or something. If you have previously set hide float bar while recording and forgot the hotkey, don't worry. You can still find the program in the system's taskbar. Double-click the icon, or right-click it to show the main interface, the bar will come out again.

• Click "OK" in the pop-up box and the record will start in three seconds. Then start playing the browser audio you want to record. The volume is adjustable during recording.
