Have you ever been watching a particular video on your computer and wanted to save it so that you could watch it later? Whether it is a livestream, YouTube video, TV show or any other type of content – in some cases you may have the option to do so, but in many you will not.
The only surefire way to be able to save videos from your screen is by capturing them directly from it. For that you’ll need a screen capture program, and there is none that is easier to use than Movavi Screen Capture Studio.
Rest assured Movavi Screen Capture Studio can quickly be set up to record videos from your screen and even if it is your first time using it you won’t need more than a few minutes. Frankly it will probably take much less than that.
Once you launch Movavi Screen Capture Studio and choose to record your screen, it will immediately let you choose the area that you want to capture – by drawing a frame on screen with your mouse cursor, selecting a window, or using one of the preset sizes in the list that is available. In this case you will want to make sure that the area you select encompasses the video that you are trying to save.
The only other option that you need to concern yourself is the audio. By selecting the icons you can choose to record audio from your speakers or an external device (or both) – but you only really need the former for videos. Of course you could also set up the other recording parameters in Movavi Screen Capture Studio if you like, and adjust the frame rate, sound levels, and so on.
Controlling the recording itself is a piece of cake with the on-screen icons, but Movavi Screen Capture Studio also has hotkeys that you can use to achieve the same. Alternatively if you don’t want to babysit the entire recording you can schedule it to automatically start and stop at a specific time, or use the timer to stop it after a certain duration.
When you are done, you should take advantage of the editing features in Movavi Screen Capture Studio before saving your video. More specifically you could trim out unwanted video segments, apply special effects, insert captions, add background music, and much more.
That essentially covers everything you need to know about capturing and saving videos from your screen using Movavi Screen Capture Studio. As you can see it is extremely straightforward, and after you try it out for the first time odds are you’ll be able to set it up in a flash whenever you need to.
