Typo in install path in extension makefile


Capture whatever your mac is playing to a .wav file on your Desktop—as simply as a screenshot.

(This is alpha software. It will cause your computer to catch fire. 🔥)


Run the installer.

NB: As of 10.10, OSX now bans drivers that haven't received explicit approval from Apple. The only workaround I'm aware of is to set a system flag to globally allow all unsigned kernel extensions. This means WavTap will not work unless you've enabled kext-dev-mode, using something like this:

sudo nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1

Yes, this sucks.


make uninstall removes everything

WavTap began as a fork of Soundflower. thanks to Cycling '74, tap, ma++ ingalls, and everyone else who's contributed to it.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
