“Does OBS record Discord audio? If it does, how can I add Discord audio to OBS so that the software can capture the audio?”

Yes, OBS does record Discord audio as long as you select the proper audio recording source. OBS Studio can record various types of audio sources on your computer, including app audio, microphone, desktop audio, and more, fulfilling your needs for capturing Discord audio. However, since OBS works to record videos by default, you can’t record Discord audio only to get an audio file.

To capture Discord audio with OBS Studio:

Step 1. Download and install OBS Studio on your computer.

Step 2. Go to the Sources panel and click Add.

Step 3. Select Application Audio Capture or Audio Output Device and set it up. By doing so, you can let OBS capture Discord audio.

Step 4. Continue adding the recording sources you need.

Step 5. When you are ready, click Start Recording.

The recorded video will contain the Discord audio you need. If you only need to capture Discord audio, using SurFlex Screen Recorder is a more suitable choice. Its audio recording option can capture internal audio, external audio, or both. When you wish to record a Discord call, you can choose to Record System sound or System Sound and Microphone to achieve your goal.
