freeware to record sounds from various apps

I'm looking for a freeware that could record the sounds that came out from
various apps : can be youtube, zoom,  browser playing a website, a VLC player:
only the sound without the video/screen.

Best if the audio can be saved into various common formats.

Ideally the software is portable (ie just run without installation) but this
feature is optional.


Question2:
sometimes a few apps are playing concurrently (eg: a few youtube
videos are playing): is there any way to audio-record only for a particular
youtube (the tab that I could select to record) or it'll just record the
jumbled sounds?  Purpose is to record a specific video's sound while
I'm playing another one

I got this portable CamStudio:

what's the difference between recording from 'speaker' vs 'mic' as shown in screen 1?

Screen 2 shows an error pops up if I select 'speaker' option: what's the cause?
So I can only select 'mic' option?

This error on screen 2 related to your sound card options 

Go to your sound card options under the record tap enable the onboard speaker device to record what you hear if it not work try option 1
