Probably a simple question, but I'm confused nonetheless

Hi. I just downloaded Audacity 2.0.0 and am running Windows Vista and need some help. I am trying to figure out how to use Audacity to record the audio coming out of my computer speakers (Im listening to a web stream). I tried selecting the various input options, but, I can’t seem to get it to record anything. Whenever I do a sample recording, there is no audio. Can you give me a push in the right direction please?

Vista and Win7 make it harder and harder to find the services and settings to do this. The problem is Windows makes business machines and establishing the recursive pathways needed to record YouTube makes corporate conferencing unstable.

Sometimes you just can’t get there and you have to add software.
