I am running Ubuntu 20.04.02 LTS with Audacity version 2.4.2.
I am unable to record streaming music. The recording is always using the laptop microphone. I have tried settings but with no luck. Wondering if someone can share what the settings should be to record music being streamed an not from the microphone. I use Spotify.
I been following the instructions and set them as per manual. However, the screen interface is different than what the manual shows. I am using version 2.4.2. With mine interface do not see the following: “Capture from” dropdown, select the “Monitor” option of the playback device used by the application you want to record from.
That’s probably because Audacity is not recording or monitoring the input.
Try clicking on the recording meter (in Audacity) so that it is monitoring the input, then open PulseAudio Volume Control again.
