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 Streaming Video Recorder

Wait until the download is finished then run the installation file and follow simple instructions on how to install the program.

Step 2: Set the Capture Parameters

Step 2 - Start using Movavi streaming video recorder

After launching the program, you will see a yellow frame that marks the boundaries of the capture area. Adjust the frame according to the size of the web video window. If you’re going to view and record the video at maximum resolution, we'd recommend you to open the list of size presets, and select your monitor name in the Fullscreen section.

Next, make sure that the System Audio icon has a green checkmark over it. If not, simply click the icon.

Step 2.2 - Click the button to record streaming video

If you need to leave your computer for a while, use the capture timer and the program will stop recording at the designated time. Simply click the timer icon, check Stop capture after, and select the required duration.

Step 3: Record the Webcast

Step 3 - Copy streaming video and edit the result

Click the REC button to start the screen video recording and Play to view the online streaming video at the same time.

Step 4: Edit and Export Your Screencast

Step 4 - Use live video capturer and save the result

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. To edit your recording (e.g. apply some artistic effects), click the Edit button.

If you don’t need video editing, save your recording in any video format or convert it for any mobile device right after the stop of screen capturing. To do it, open the formats list, and choose one of the video/audio formats (AVI, MP4, FLV, MKV, etc.) or devices (iPod, Android, Nokia, Sony PSP, etc.). Then click Save so the program begins saving your clip to the chosen format.

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 the Movavi internet video downloader.
