Questions and answers about streaming

I clicked Audio recording, but no music files are being recorded. Can I still record music while surfing?
If the Audio recording function does not record every song, you may select Sound recording continuously.
Note: As opposed to the Audio recording function, Sound recording continuously records the audio 1:1 as it is played. Incidental noises, such as those from a chat program will also be recorded.
