YouTube is a well-liked website where users may watch videos
on a variety of subjects. Some of these videos might be good candidates for
saving so you can watch them later or use them as references. You can
accomplish this by screen-capturing the video as it is being played on your computer
First off, it's crucial to be aware that YouTube's terms of
service forbid downloading videos from their platform unless the owner of the
video or YouTube's download tool specifically permits it. As you are making a
duplicate of the movie for personal use, screen recording a video is
technically a kind of downloading.
As long as you're not sharing or distributing the video,
screen recording a YouTube video for personal use may not necessarily be
against YouTube's terms of service. But, if you want to share the video with
others or use it for business purposes, you need ask the owner of the video for
permission before doing so or look into other ways to get the video.
So, how can a YouTube video be screen recorded? There are
generally two ways to achieve it: using built-in screen recording features or
third-party screen recording software. The process differs depending on the
device and operating system you're using.
You can record YouTube videos using the built-in screen
recording feature on devices running iOS 11 or later. To do this, slide up from
the bottom of the screen to reveal the Control Center. Then, hit the screen
recording icon and, if you wish to record audio along with the video, choose
the microphone option. Next, find the video you want to record in the YouTube
app, open it, and begin watching it. When you're finished, tap the red bar at
the top of the screen or the screen recording icon in the Control Center to end
The procedure is the same on Android smartphones. For
smartphones running Android 10 or later, you can utilize the built-in screen
recording feature by touching the Screen Record icon, sliding down from the top
of the screen to open the Quick Settings panel, and choosing whether you want
to record audio from the video or via your device's microphone. Next, find the
video you want to record in the YouTube app, open it, and begin watching it.
When you're finished recording, hit the Screen Record icon in the Quick
Settings panel to end the screen capture.
As an alternative, you can record YouTube videos on iOS and
Android smartphones using third-party screen recording applications. The App
Store and Google Play Store both offer a wide variety of screen recording
applications, including DU Recorder and AZ Screen Recorder.
To start and stop recording, you tap on a floating icon that
is typically created by these programs on your screen. Before downloading, make
sure to do your homework and read reviews because some of these apps can ask
you to root your device or pay for extra features.
