[FFmpeg-user] I'm playing audio on my Linux PC from the WWW. Can I record it to a file with ffmpeg?

FFmpeg can record from alsa, oss, jack and pulse (and 
this is of course documented).
How to set up the loopback device that is (probably) 
necessary to do what you want may be out-of-scope for 
this mailing list (and I don't know how to do it) but 
I believe this was answered on mplayer-users.
