    Hi there,

    Does anyone know how you can capture the currently playing audio using
    Java Sound? For instance, if I'm playing something with WinAmp, I'd
    like to capture that, for recording to file or compress-and-broadcast
    purposes. I can capture from the microphone no problems, but I
    effectively want access to the sound that is being sent to the

    Any help much appreciated,

    Thanks Andrew. Turns out I was on the right track, but did not have
    audio loopback enabled so was getting no signal. Once that was
    enabled it was all good!

    Thanks again,

  4. Your future lack of 'full quoting' will be
    thanks enough!
    Aha! Those damn audio loopbacks are a huge
    hurdle for deploying Java sound apps.
    Could you give us some more details of the
    OS and hardware?
    Excellent. Glad you sorted it.
