COMMENT: Capturing Videos from a Computer Screen to Watch Later with Movavi Screen Capture Studio

What sort of videos do you like to watch on your computer normally? Between the funny YouTube videos, Netflix shows, helpful tutorials, shared Facebook videos, and other types of content there are bound to be at least some favourites that you watch over and over again. Instead of streaming these videos each and every time you choose to watch them – don’t you think it would be nice to save them so that you could watch them later even if you’re offline?

Because online streaming videos generally don’t have the option to ‘save’ videos, most people are unaware that it is actually possible to do so. To pull it off however you’ll need to use a screen recorder and quite literally record the video while it is playing on your computer screen. That isn’t half as hard as it sounds – and with Movavi Screen Capture Studio it can be done in a few simple steps:

  1. Launch Movavi Screen Capture Studio and select ‘Record screen’ in the main menu.
  2. Use the mouse cursor to draw a capture frame over the video that you want to record on your screen, then adjust it manually to fit.
  3. Make sure the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted in green, or click it if not.
  4. When you are ready, press ‘REC’ to start recording after a 5 second delay and play the video at the same time.
  5. Press ‘Stop’ when you are done, then click ‘Save as’ to save the video.

If you want you could set up some of the other recording parameters in Movavi Screen Capture Studio depending on your needs. In particular you may want to adjust the frame rate, capture audio from external devices, or record keyboard and mouse actions. That being said if all you’re interested in is to capture online video – you can ignore these parameters.

The other features in Movavi Screen Capture Studio should not be ignored however, as they consist of an entire suite of editing tools. With these tools you could trim out any footage that was inadvertently recorded, join clips together, improve the video quality, insert animated transitions, include audio tracks, and much more. In short you could make small improvements or large alterations to your videos – all with a few clicks at most.

Given the fact that Movavi Screen Capture Studio makes it so easy to record any videos you want from your screen – why not give it a try? Once you’re able to save your favourite videos and watch them as and when you see fit, you’ll be amazed how convenient and hassle-free it can be.
