first there is capturing which records what you see on the desktop and then there is recording and then there is saving like in downloading.

Most tools that capture or record offer to you some settings to record from source and if you want audio after that it's automatic.
Saving to avi may limit the offers.
First up I use Cam Studio free open source, it's a capture tool as in you need to play the video in the web page the set the regeon to record and set record audio with  and record it, it saves to flv and avi
Configuring CamStudio

WM Recorder has trial I have used this and in the trial only allows a few secs but here you dont have to capture just add the URL and it save the video with audio

are you running cmd's
But if cannot get any recording from speakers are you on a laptop?
Running which windows?

Vista? is it a laptop, to explain
 in order to get the stereomix  you need to unhide it
go to control panel or r/click the volume icon on the taskbar
recording devices>r/click anywhere>  show disabled devices and show  disconnected devices enable

 Now you should see the stereomix highlight it and make default. Now you can record what you hear in the speakers. But if you dont have a full duplex audio card most laptops dont as the internel speakers shares the same resources as the headphones.
Work around is to create a virtual sound card
Total recorder does this.

Looks like you have  a laptop and what I refer to as a half duplex audio card, most laptops have a half duplex audio onboard chip
 the reason being is the speakers are internal and so must share the same source with mic, it is required to switch from one to other not both
in order for you to have record what you hear you'll need a virtual sound card Total Recorder will resolve this for you with recording what you hear, if you have any questions they have good backup and you can contact them and ask them will this resolve your audo recording problem.
