How to Record a Webinar on PC or Mac
Webinars, or online seminars, have become an essential part of our lives. They’re a great way to learn something new and to ask experts for advice in real-time. That's why thousands of webinars on various topics are viewed every day. However, this method of studying has one big drawback: once the webinar is over, it is often not available for later viewing.
The solution is simple. Movavi Screen Capture Studio lets you record any webinar at its best – when it is actually happening! But the program is more than just webinar recording software – you can capture everything that happens on your screen: live streaming, Skype calls, software presentation or demonstration, and more. You can easily save your recordings on your computer in a format suitable for almost any device, so you can watch all your captured videos anytime – even when you are offline!
Download the appropriate version of Movavi Screen Capture Studio and follow these simple steps to record a webinar on your computer. The instructions work for both Windows and Mac versions.
Step 1: Install the Software
Download the setup file for Movavi Screen Capture Studio onto your computer and open it. Follow the installation instructions on your screen to complete the setup process. When it’s done, the program will run automatically. If you use Windows, select Capture screen to launch the screen recording mode, this mode will start automatically for Mac users.
Step 2: Set the Frame and Record Your Webinar
The yellow frame on your screen marks the area that will be captured. Open the webinar site, click the button in the center of the frame and drag the frame to the area on the screen where the video element of the webinar will appear. If necessary, adjust the frame size by pulling on the borders; you can also choose one of the presets on the control panel. Make sure that the System Audio icon has a green checkmark over it and the Microphone icon doesn’t – this way you’ll be capturing just the output of the speakers, without the interfering background noise that may be picked up by your microphone.
When the webinar starts, click the REC and the grabber will start recording after five seconds. Don’t switch to a different window or tab while you’re recording. Once the webinar is over, hit Stop. You can also use the keyboard to control the recorder. If you use Windows, press F10 to start/stop, F9 to pause/resume; to do the same on the Mac, press ⌥ ⌘ 2 and ⌥ ⌘ 1 respectively. You can also use the convenient control panel over the capture frame to manage the recording process and take snapshots during capture.
Step 3: Save the Video on Your Computer
When the capturing process is finished, you’ll see a window where you can play the recording. To cut off any unwanted elements at the beginning and end of the video, move the triangular markers at both ends of the timeline to the appropriate places. If you need to do more detailed video editing (for example, if you’d like to remove some sections, add transitions, or enhance the image quality), press Edit to launch the built-in video editor, which will give you all the necessary tools.
Video doesn’t require editing? Awesome! Let’s move on to saving. To choose the format for your video, open the Save as list and you’ll see the most popular formats. Click Video and audio formats to get a comprehensive list of available formats. Pick the appropriate one, click Save, and your webinar will be ready for repeat watching in a few minutes.
