I don't have ffmpeg console output.  I'm playing the file
with another application (mozilla).  I want to know if I can use ffmpeg
to capture that audio and store in a file.

I want to record whatever if playing on my PC to the PC's
speakers, whether it's a stream, or whatever.  I don't have
any ffmpeg console output to show since I don't know how to
do this.
