Many modern computers with Vista or Windows 7 can't play and record to audio at the same time. This means that the Record button in FTS won't work on those computers. The best program I've found so far is the free:

BB FlasBack Express Player

This records the video as well as the audio. If that's what you need to do you need look no further.

But for audio only then need something else.

Other programs to record directly to audio in Vista and Windows 7


PC Win Speaker Record (Vista or Windows 7 version) (not working on my computer right now - but maybe needs to run as administrator?)

FREECORDER - works within browser, free, BUT USE WITH SOME CARE. It suggests several extras during install so don't just click yes to everything. Yu need to answer "no" to if you don't want them. I also found that it changed the home page of my browser and made some other changes e.g. changed default search. And adds a big tool bar to the browser which takes up a lot of space - though you can hide it.

Anyway none of that any problem for anyone who is reasonably techy but don't like to recommend it to someone who isn't particularly so as you may decide you want your browser web back the way it was and not sure how to do it.

Searched for a free one without those install extras (and ideally also not requiring you to run your browser to access it)

other possibilities here?

Low cost shareware


This works fine in the demo though only records 100 seconds per track, $29.95 to unlock. Basically you start up the program and start recording and it will then record anything played on your computer.
