Record Sound from Your Browser

If you ever wanted to record sound from YouTube videos or Flash players on your favorite band’s site now you can! Well, you could’ve done that for a while now, but I just now found out about it.

Anyway, the plugin is called FreeCorder and you can get it for Firefox and even IE (of all things), and the new version even works on Vista (you poor, poor soul…). Download it here.

So after you install the plugin, it adds a hideous little toolbar to your browser with a bunch of buttons. Before you start recording, go to Settings and under Prompt for Filename select Before Recording. I didn’t do that on my first try and thought it was recording. When it was done the file was nonexistent. Not sure what happened there, but after I changed the prompt thing it worked. No need to change anything else. You have the option of MP3 and WAV. Mine was an MP3 and it played back flawlessly.

The only drawback is the annoying toolbar which adds 26 pixels of extra chrome, so after recording what I needed, I had to disable it, which is easy enough.

    Girl, You’re a dime! Thank you for solving my problem! All this week I’ve been trying to extract a song i couldn’t find anywhere to buy or download and here you are! You solved the problem just like that. Thank you for that! I was that poor soul for real trying to find that song i wanted (It’s very rare), and you helped me out a lot. I hope you’ll read this post sweetheart. P.S. you’re beautiful too;) Thank you again!
