I want to make a tutorial about how to use particular software and then send the video to my cousin abroad. However, I don’t know how to record the screen of my computer. Could you help me on this? Thank you!
Aside from recording the screen for tutorials, a screen recorder is needed for people who want to make video demos, presentations and trainings. Additionally, some people use it to record live streaming, and video calls. It is indeed so hard to record software tutorial on computer especially if you do not have a screen recorder. With this, I will give you some screen recorder suggestions for you to be able to use in making your software tutorial video.
1.Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder
This is a web-based online tool which can help you record the screen of your computer in order for you to make a tutorial. It does not need installation and it does not require users to register for an account. It can record a video and audio from microphone or system sound at the same time. Moreover, this online tool allows users to record videos with no maximum time which is actually good in making tutorial videos as everything can be discussed very well. Here is how to record software tutorial on PC using this tool:
Step 2: Click on “Start Recording” button and wait for the tool to appear on the screen.
Step 3: Drop down “Audio Input” and choose where to record the audio then drop down “Record” to decide which part of the screen to be recorded.
Step 4: Click on “Start” button to begin recording.
Step 5: Start with your software tutorial
Step 6: Click “Stop” once you’re done.
Step 7: To watch the software tutorial you made, just click “Play” button which is located at the lower part of the tool.
In addition to this, it as well has a desktop version which is called as Apowersoft Screen Recorder pro. Aside from having all the features of the online tool, this pro version allows users to edit the video tutorial made by using the editing tool it possesses. You can add arrows, shapes, texts, lines, which is a big help in making a video of software tutorial.
2.EZVid This screen recorder will require you to install it in your computer for you to be able to use it. Just like the first one, this tool also has an editing tool allowing you to put effects, lines, shapes and anything that can help in the enhancement of the video tutorial. On the other hand, although the makers of this tool said that it’s free, they still require users to donate $9 for the continuous development of the tool.
3.Screenr This is a free online tool but it needs installation and registration to be able to use it. Actually, this is one of the easiest tools to use. However, it only has a maximum of no more than 5 minutes of video recording. So if you are making a long tutorial, you’ll need to stop recording every 5 minutes and then just continue with another one. You’ll also be needing an editing tool which can help you in merging them all. Unfortunately, this tool does not have an editing tool as well.
Those are the screen recorders I can recommend in recording software tutorial on PC. You can now do any video tutorial in your computer in as easy as 1,2 and 3. Although all of these are recommended, choose the best one which you think can fit your needs.
