Online streaming video has become the norm nowadays, and websites such as YouTube, Facebook as well as numerous others that provide such content are immeasurably popular. However the one downside of most streaming video is that there is no convenient option to ‘save’ them so that you can watch them later without needing to be online.
In most cases this is not an issue – but let us say you wanted to save a video to your smartphone because you have restricted data usage on it, or if your internet connection can be unstable so you’d rather just not stream the video in the first place. To get around this, the best way to save videos that are being streamed is by recording them using screen capture software.
If you think about it, this really makes a lot of sense. Screen capture software allows you to record whatever is on your screen, so all you need to do to record streaming video is to play the video and then capture it directly from your screen. Assuming you want to do just that, you can use the Movavi Screen Capture Studio as a streaming video recorder.
All that you need to do is set it up to record the video that is playing. Be sure to set the capture area accordingly, and also check the audio source is set on ‘system audio’ so that it records the audio from the streaming video itself.
To stop the recording automatically, just set the corresponding duration on the timer and then click the ‘REC’ button to start recording. Once the recording is done, you can choose to edit it by clicking the ‘Edit’ button, and trim away any unwanted segments of the video, add music, include stylish transitions – and much more.
Whenever you’re satisfied, click ‘Save’ and choose the most appropriate preset to automatically save it with the optimal settings based on the platform or device that you’re using. That’s really all there is to it, and as you can see – recording streaming video with the Movavi Screen Capture Studio really is a piece of cake.
