Chrome Audio Capture is a Chrome extension that allows users to record any audio playing on the current tab. Multiple tabs can be recorded simultaneously. Recordings can be saved as either .mp3 or .wav files. Users will have the option to mute tabs that are currently being recorded.

To begin recording on a tab simply click on the extension icon and use the interface or hotkeys to start and stop the recording. Once the recording is stopped or when the time limit is reached, a new tab will be opened for you to save and name your audio file. Make sure to save your file before closing the tab, otherwise the file will be lost! Check the options page for different output file formats and other features!

If you enjoyed the extension, please leave a review on the extension page! Please report any bugs or suggestions using the support tab of the extension page.

Note: Currently recordings are limited to 20 minutes due to Chrome memory constraints. Limit can be bypassed, but it is not recommended as more testing is required to determine the maximum time for lower quality settings.

Version History:

version 1.1.1 - Some fixes improvements

version 1.1.0 - The long awaited MP3 update! Along with other new features and improvements

Risk impact

Chrome Audio Capture requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Chrome Audio Capture has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
