    I use OBS and it is always reminding me that there is "high CPU usage". Does this software Reaally works Only on web- based ? Is my computer free from risk of high CPU usage also using this ?
    • Hi, Francisco! Sorry to tell you that all the screen recorders (no matter it's web-based or desktop) would occupy CPU when recording. You can try our online screen recorder to check whether it can occupy less CPU when capturing.
