Do you sometimes wish you were able to grab some of the videos that you see on certain websites so that you could save them on your Mac, watch them later, or maybe even show and share them with your friends?
Although most of the videos on websites are online streams and there is no option available to save them, it is actually possible to grab them – if you know how.
The trick that you need to use is to use screen capture and quite literally record the video while it is playing on your screen.
By using Movavi Screen Capture for Mac you’ll be able to do that, and indeed there is no easier way to record your screen on a Mac than by using it.
Fully Control the Video That is Recorded
When you start to use Movavi Screen Capture for Mac, you’ll immediately be able to adjust the capture frame so that it encompasses the video that you want to record.
All you need to do is resize and re-position that frame, or select one of the preset sizes in the drop-down menu.
If you want to you can select the audio source to record from your speakers, a microphone, or even an external device, and you can also configure the frame rate too.
For some videos it may even be helpful to utilize Movavi Screen Capture for Mac’s ability to record keyboard and mouse actions, and although that is situational it is a nice feature in recording software for Mac.
Once you’ve set up the parameters, all you need to do is start recording.
With the hotkeys in Movavi Screen Capture for Mac you should be able to control the recording conveniently, and there is even a timer that can help you to automatically stop it after a certain duration so you don’t need to sit there and ‘babysit’ it.
After the recording is complete you can save it on your Mac in a format of your choosing or use the presets in Movavi Screen Capture for Mac to optimize it for a specific device or platform.
Effectively you will have grabbed a copy of the video that you wanted from a website, and now that it is saved on your hard drive you can watch it whenever you desire or transfer it over to other devices if you want to.
