How to Record WhatsApp Video Calls on PC/Mobile
How to record WhatsApp video calls with audio on a PC
Step 1. Install the WhatsApp call recorder
Download the Movavi Screen Recorder installation file to access the WhatsApp Call recorder. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the program on your PC.
Step 2. Adjust the recording parameters
Open WhatsApp on your computer and launch the Screen Recorder. Choose the recording tool and determine the size of the area you want to capture.
Check the System Audio and Microphone icons – they should be highlighted in green to ensure the participants’ voices will be recorded. If you have more than one input device, open the menu above the microphone icon and choose the appropriate device.
Step 3. Record a WhatsApp video call
Hitting the REC button launches the recording process after three seconds. If you do not want to miss the beginning of the conversation, be sure to select it before starting the video call. By clicking on the Pause, Stop, and Cancel buttons, you can control the recording. Take care, though: if you press Cancel, your call will not be saved.
The hotkeys are different for Windows and Mac. For Windows, F9 is Pause and F10 is Stop. If you have a Mac, the hotkeys are ⌥ ⌘ 1 and ⌥ ⌘ 2, respectively. After you finish recording, your video will be automatically saved in MKV format. Before saving, the Screen Recorder will show you a preview version so you can check it.
Step 4. Edit and save the record
In the preview window, you can cut out unwanted parts of the conversation or shorten it. Use the Scissors icon to select the unwanted segment, then delete it by clicking the Trash can button.
When you’re finished editing, hit Export and change the format if needed. Enter the name of the video in the File name field and choose a folder in the Save to field. Finally, click Save.
Congratulations, your WhatsApp call has been captured and saved to your hard disk! You can do more editing later if you wish, make the recording a part of a movie or presentation, or share it with friends.
