There are thousands of fascinating Flash videos streaming on the web. Social networks and video hosting sites are full of funny out-takes from shows as well as many other kinds of videos that capture our imagination and sense of humor. You can easily access them on the web, but what if you want to show some of these videos to your friends when you don’t have an Internet connection? For such occasions, it would be a good idea to record your favorite Flash videos from a website and save them on your device for further viewing. Download Movavi Screen Capture Studio and you’ll be able to capture Flash movies with optimal quality, convert them to one of many common video formats and save the result on your computer or mobile device.
Read this step-by-step guide for more about recording Flash videos from websites.
Step 1: Install the Online Video Recorder
First of all, download and open the installation file. Complete the simple registration process and open the program to start capturing streaming Flash videos.
Step 2: Prepare the Program for Video Recording
After opening the program, you will see a yellow frame that represents the capture area. Adjust it to fit the size of the video area you want to capture. You can also open a dropdown list right in the program and select a standard size option.
Step 3: Capture Your Video
Hit the REC button and start playing your video. Now the program is "downloading" your flash video. Click Pause or Stop when you want to take a break or when you’ve finished capturing. You can also manage the process with hot keys: press F9 to pause/resume and F10 to stop recording.
Step 4: Save the Clip
Before saving, you can edit your video. Just press the Edit button and another Movavi program, Video Editor, will open to let you spice up your video with some video effects, subtitles or music.
If you don’t want to edit your video, just open the Save as list and choose your preferred format. If you can’t find the one you need, click Video and audio formats to see the complete list of available formats, or choose Device and pick a preset for your mobile device. When you’re ready, click the Save button. Now you have your captured video. Store it on your device and watch it whenever you want, even if you don’t have Internet access!
