There are gigabytes of videos on the internet: YouTube clips, live streams of gigs and sporting events, educational videos, and TV shows. But what if you want to save streaming video and watch it again later?
Unfortunately, online sharing websites do not offer any downloading options, and watching high quality online videos often becomes a mess. If your bandwidth is not enough, it can take too much time to load the video. As for the live streaming videos which aren’t available for download or purchase, you can’t review them as well. Unless you have Movavi Screen Capture Studio — a handy software for capturing online video or any other kind of screen activity. With Screen Capture Studio you can record online video without slowdowns and save it to your hard drive in any format or for any mobile device you like. Let’s see how to record streaming video with this brand new Movavi capturing software.
Download Screen Capture Studio right now and capture any web video!
Step 1: Install Screen Capture Studio
Wait until the download is finished then run the installation file and follow simple instructions on how to install the program.
Step 2: Select the Online Video mode
Run the application and click the icon on the upper-right corner to open the capture modes menu. Select the Online Video preset which has optimal settings for recording streaming movies and shows. You will see a red frame showing the capture area. Adjust it according to the size of the web video window or click the list of capture frames and select Fullscreen if you’re going to view and record the video at maximum resolution.
Step 3: Record the webcast
Open the online video, move the frame to capture the exact area you need. Click the REC button to start the screen video recording and Play to view the online streaming video at the same time. Make sure the Audio option is enabled in the Recording Source area.
Step 4: Edit and export your screencast
Once you’ve captured the video from the internet, click Stop. You will see a Preview window which allows you to check the captured material and choose one of three options to continue. Click Share to upload the video to YouTube, Facebook, and other websites using the Share Online application or click Edit to improve the screencast within a built-in video editor by cutting or merging it with other video files, adding titles and special effects. The video editor also enables you to burn video files to DVD discs.
Step 5: Save captured video in the selected format
If you don’t need video editing and online sharing, save your recording in any video format or convert it for any mobile device right after the stop of screen capturing. Tick the Convert to option and choose one of the video/audio formats (AVI, MP4, FLV, MKV, etc.) or devices (iPod, Android Phones, Nokia, Sony PSP, etc.) from the list below. Then click Convert.
Now you know how to capture streaming video in the most efficient way. Add some creativity and turn your recording into a featured video with Screen Capture Studio.
