For playing from multiple sources, ALSA plus the version of .asoundrc
below has been rock-solid for a couple of years now:
I now want to use things like "recordmydesktop" which work fine with the
mic but they do not record sound from audio or video clips that are
playing eg from YouTube or local mpv etc. So, yet again, I started to
try and make sense of JACK because I was pretty sure that it could solve
this problem - but I have found sound on linux has always been a major
pain and messing around with configs and rebooting etc on my big
workstation is tedious so I think I will try to get something working on
my laptop to begin with.
Hopefully some jack gurus will have some suggestions about how to do
what I want to do? I presume it is possible?

# This is the microphone
