Recording inner sound

So i'm looking for something that could record inner sounds and save it. For example if i'm playing some game i want to record all sounds or if i'm listening to music online.. i don't have a mic so i need something different..

Any ideas?

You should be able to use any sound recorder currently installed on your system, just select the master output as the source in the mixer. You can do this pretty easily through tools like Audacity, and even on the command line using arecord.

I usually use Audacity, but any utility will work as long as you configure it properly.

A better way to rip streaming audio is to use streamripper (if that's what you wanted to do) or you could use mplayer to dump output to a file ... also works with streaming video (usually).
