YouTube has grown to be synonymous with viewing online videos, and odds are you watch content on it fairly regularly. In fact there may even be certain videos that you enjoy watching repeatedly due to how funny, inspiring or useful it is.
The only problem with watching your favorite videos repeatedly on YouTube is that you will have to be online every time that you want to do so. Additionally the person who initially uploaded them may take them down without any notice, in which case you won’t be able to watch them.
In both cases the solution is simple: Save the YouTube videos so you can watch them without being online and whenever you want. Since YouTube doesn’t have a feature for you to do that however, your best bet is to use Movavi Screen Capture for Mac to capture the video and then save it after that.
Assuming you’re already on YouTube and have the video open, just launch Movavi Screen Capture for Mac and click on ‘Record screen’. Next define the capture area by drawing a frame on the screen using the mouse cursor.
In the interface that appears you should check to make sure the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted, or click on it once if not. At the same time you may want to ensure the ‘Microphone’ icon isn’t highlighted, so that Movavi Screen Capture for Mac doesn’t record audio from it.
That is really all that you have to set up, and when you’re ready you can click ‘REC’ to start recording and play the YouTube video once you do. Once the recording is complete click ‘Stop’, and Movavi Screen Capture for Mac will automatically save the video to your hard drive and open up a preview window so you can go over it.
Within the preview window you could trim out any excess video that may have been inadvertently recorded by using the ‘Scissors’ icon to split the clip and then the ‘Trash can’ icon to delete the parts you don’t want. When you’re done you can click ‘Save as’ and choose a format or preset to save your video.
It is worth noting that Movavi Screen Capture for Mac will let you control all the other recording parameters as well including the sound levels, frame rate, and so on. It also has features that will allow you to schedule the recording, capture keyboard and mouse actions, or grab webcam footage.
As you can see it is easy to capture YouTube video on Mac with Movavi Screen Capture for Mac. It should only take you a minute or two to set things up, and you can then record any video you like from YouTube so that you can watch it at your pleasure.
