How to Save Periscope Videos to Your PC or Mac
Periscope is a live video streaming service acquired by Twitter. It enables users to “go live” using their mobile devices, so they can run broadcasts anytime, anywhere. When you want to start watching an interesting one, you just join it. Then you’ll be able to watch a live broadcast in real time, or a replay if you missed one.
Periscope stream shows the whole world including the news in real time, beautiful landscapes and city views, or just everyday life around the world. What it doesn’t do is let users save someone's Periscope video. So, what do you do if you need to download a video from Periscope? Use Movavi Screen Recorder to capture videos from the screen and save the broadcasts from the Web.
From the short guide below, you’ll learn how to download Periscope video without using special Periscope downloaders. So, let’s get started!
Install Movavi Screen Recorder
Download the installation file, open it and follow the onscreen instructions. Launch Movavi Screen Recorder.
Record a Periscope Video
Open Periscope and find a broadcast for recording. Check the sound on the video. It must be on if you want to save the broadcast with sound. Then check the System Audio icon in the Screen Recorder window. It must be displayed in green to rip sound. Before you start playing the video, click the Select Capture Area button and draw the program’s capture frame around the video in Periscope. You can adjust the frame after drawing if you need to.
Click the REC button, wait for the three-second countdown, then start playing the video. While the broadcast is being captured, you can control the process with the Cancel, Pause, and Stop buttons.
Edit and Save the Video
When the video finishes, click Stop. Then, in the preview window, edit the captured video if you wish.
To cut out unwanted segments, move the white marker on the seek bar to the beginning of the section you want to remove and click scissors. Do the same to mark the end of the unwanted section. Click on the unwanted segment, then on the trash can icon.
Click Save As and look at the quick access panel. Here you can choose a preset to convert your video to MP4, AVI or MOV. Select the format you need and click the Save button.
Congratulations! Now you know how to use Movavi Screen Recorder as a Periscope video saver.
