Have you ever been watching a video on a particular website and wished that you could save it so that you were able to show it to your friends, or watch it offline yourself at some later date? Although many online streaming videos on websites don’t give you a ready made option to do so, it is actually possible to record the videos directly from your Mac’s screen and then save them.
Of course to do that you’ll need a screen recorder, which is the role that Movavi Screen Capture for Mac will play. It is intuitive enough that you don’t need any special experience to use it, and can start recording by following these steps:
- Launch Movavi Screen Capture for Mac and select ‘Record screen’ in the main menu.
- Draw a frame over the area of your Mac’s screen that you want to record using the mouse cursor.
- Make sure the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted in green or click on it once otherwise.
- Click ‘REC’ to start recording and play the website video at the same time.
- Click ‘Stop’ when the video is done, then click ‘Save as’ to save it.
Right before you save your video, Movavi Screen Capture for Mac will let you review the recording and trim out any parts that you don’t need. All you need to do is position the marker and use the ‘scissors’ icon to split the footage, then select the parts you don’t want and use the ‘trash can’ to remove them.
