How can I record system sounds (apps) in Audacity?

How can I record sound that's playing? (obviously I don't want to hold a microphone to the speaker for quality's sake).

I tried Audacity, but it didn't help me. Solution with other software would be OK

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You need to enable "Stereo Mix" to be able to capture your system sound. Then you can use that as an ordinary recording device (like a microphone) with any audio recording software. Audacity should work once you do that. See to get started.

For me, recording devices doesn't list 'stereo mix' :( – Colonel Panic Sep 22 '12 at 16:13
