How to Record Computer Screen

Last updated on October 20, 2016 by

Either for work or entertainment, it is a proven fact that something produced on video can fetch a higher interest than the same information illustrated by a long rigmarole and tedious words.

This is because recording video on computer can completely reflect the point, which can allow people to understand better. Therefore, people are more willing to create a tutorial or a demo video to share experience or show latest information.

Choose a good screen video recorder

If you want to create a training video to teach others how to use an application, show your strategies of playing games, present a new product demo or do many other things, you must take screen video recorder into the first consideration. Indeed, there’re two main ways to achieve your goal.

Way1: Online screen recorder to record computer screen

You can choose an online screen recorder like Screencast-O-Matic, which is the original online screen recording software. You can record video for free. But you should install Java on your browser to access the product first. Besides, the recording videos have a watermark on the left. You must pay money to eliminate it.

Way2: Screen recording software to record video from computer screen

By contrast, screen recording software seems to be more practical. There’re many well-known software like Camstudio, Camtasia and Jing. Comparing them, they may be difficult to handle, lag computer speed, cost too much or has time limitation.
