If you’re looking to record what’s happening on your Mac’s screen, you have 3 main options at your disposal: QuickTime Player, virtual machine software, and screen recording software. This article will help you better understand each of these three options so that you can choose the right one for your needs and use it effectively. Before we go on, let’s take a look at why you might want to record your screen in the first place.
1) Use QuickTime Player
QuickTime Player is an intuitive way to record your screen, but it doesn’t offer everything you need. Capturing video of your entire screen using QuickTime can take up a lot of hard drive space and requires you to remember to press the Stop Recording button.
If you want something more straightforward, open Mac’s built-in camera. Make sure you have enough lighting in the room and that nothing important is happening outside of your computer’s view; otherwise, that’s just going to show up in the video as well. Take a few seconds of footage from various angles so there will be no hiccups when it comes time for editing.
To record your screen using QuickTime, you’ll need: A Mac computer with QuickTime Player installed (you can download it for free from Apple’s site). Your Mac camera is set up and positioned. The OBS open source software. An HDMI cable.
Use OBS – Second Paragraph: Open Broadcaster Software is a program that makes it easy to capture footage from your screen, video, or audio input devices or webcams. You can also use it to stream live videos online. This flexibility comes at a cost of simplicity; getting set up isn’t as straightforward as pressing a record in QuickTime, but it’s still relatively easy.
2) Use QuickTime Pro
If you want more flexibility, check out QuickTime Pro. You can record the audio of your screen as well as video, and even add commentary or subtitles if you like. This gives you more flexibility in editing and makes it easier to generate screencasts that are clear and easy-to-follow, without any of the hassles of converting files or running other third-party software. All you need is a Mac computer with QuickTime installed. Here’s how to get started recording your screen:
1) Open up QuickTime Pro
2) Open your screenshot using Finder and drag it into the preview window at the top left corner of the QuickTime window
3) Press Record (if there’s an + next to it)
3) Use AirServer
AirServer is the best way to record your screen if you have a Mac computer. It can connect via WiFi or ethernet, and streams whatever is on your computer directly onto your phone. No additional hardware or software installation is required for the streamer. The best part? You don’t need any cables! Once the app is downloaded, all you need to do is follow the easy-to-use setup guide and wait for it to connect with AirPlay. You can then start recording anything that’s showing up on your screen. What’s even better than being able to easily record everything on your screen? The fact that there are lots of different options available!
AirServer is available for download on both Windows and Mac computers, so you can record your screen no matter what type of computer you have. As long as you have an AirPlay-enabled device, all you need to do is make sure that your computer is connected to Wi-Fi or ethernet and then select from one of several types of recording options, including a full stream, part stream (such as just displaying video), whole display or single window. It also includes built-in features for audio recording, so if audio needs to be included in your video capture you don’t need any additional software! In addition to being able to edit what was recorded and choosing where it should save, AirServer allows you view other applications while screencasting—no multi-screening required!
