When you come across a video on your Mac that you’d like to watch later, you may look for a way to save it. In some cases that may be possible, but for many online streaming videos, TV shows and other types of content – it is not. However there is a relatively easy way around this problem: Capture the videos you want to watch later directly from your screen and then save them.

As much as that may sound difficult at first glance, it won’t take you long to set up Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac and start capturing any video you want from your screen. Due to its intuitive nature you don’t need any prior experience to use it as a screen recorder for Mac, and it shouldn’t take more than a minute or two for you to get started.

Essentially to set up Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac so that it captures a video from your screen for you to watch later, you just need to define the area that you want to record so that it encompasses the video and make sure that the audio is recorded as well. The former can be performed immediately after you launch the software and choose to ‘Record screen’ – as you can then use the mouse cursor to draw a frame directly over the video you intend to record.

Once you’ve drawn a frame, the recording interface will appear and you can adjust any of the settings there – including redefining the capture area. At that point you can make sure Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac will record audio from your speakers, by checking that the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted. Additionally you may also want to adjust the volume levels, set the frame rate, or explore its other features that will let you record audio from external devices (i.e. a microphone) or capture keyboard and mouse actions.

In any case that is all that needs to be set up, and once you’re satisfied you can start to record and play the video at the same time so that it is captured. When you’re done and you stop recording you can save the video in a format of your choosing, or by using the built-in presets in Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac to automatically optimize it for various devices and platforms.

It is worth noting that instead of saving the video immediately, you could use Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac to edit it first. With its built-in editor you can trim out unnecessary footage, enhance the video quality, apply special effects, add captions, merge clips together, and much more.

As you can see it really is fairly easy to capture different videos to watch later with the help of Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac. Frankly as you’ve probably gathered its features extend far beyond that, and if you wish you could use it to create high quality and professional-looking video content of any kind.
