First I admire what you do. Very impressive program. And support.
Trying to capture streaming audio from Safari
Mac Mini (Model identifier Macmini7,1
start Safari, go to page
start playing audio track
Click RED dot record
Error Opening recording device
Error Code: 0 Success
The manual says
“this means there is a problem with your Audacity, operating system or sound device recording settings, where xxxx is replaced by a numeric code” Look up code, dead end.
Thanks for the quick reply.
No microphone option.
I’m starting to wonder if this just won’t work BECAUSE it is a “Mac Mini”?
macOS does not directly support recording streaming audio. You need additional software (or a "loopbac cable) to give the Mac that ability.
See: Tutorial - Recording Computer Playback on Mac - Audacity Manual
Inelegant but it works. (having to switch preferences back and forth)
Doesn’t matter. open source and it works.
Also EXCELLENT documentation!
Thanks for the help
Forgot to mention.
Several solutions were offered.
I used the “SoundFlower” option.
