    Hey, I want to set the sounds of the computer to be the computer. Like, for example, if I play a video on YouTube, that would be the sound that the "microphone" would record. Anybody knows how to do that?

    Thanks.

    System Preferences -> Sound -> Input -> Internal Microphone

    Make sure your speakers are turned up, and the internal microphone will pick up those sounds (along with any other sounds in the room, of course). For more sophisticated solutions, look at software developed by Rogue Amoeba.

    THis will cause the audio to be lower quality and have lots of background noise.

    Install this... It will let you set an audio source as a "mic".

    Thanks, it now the computer records the output sound, but I can't hear anything. Is it ask too much or can I do both?

    I'd better explain myself. I plan to do some Cookie Monster prank calls, using this:

    The other person needs to hear just this, and I need to hear the other person. Is it possible?
