You can read on to be informed and inspired by the following guides and related software recommendations for different platforms.

How to Make Screen Video on Windows (10) and macOS (11)?

With desktops, laptops, and notebooks, our appetite for video is increasing. That’s because video messaging/chatting is more widely used to improve communication efficiency. And video tutorials and classes have become an emerging trend in distance education. In addition, video blogging is also on the rise for people or enterprises to reach a massive audience. Being a video information receiver or a content creator, you must have a chance to record a PC screen.

Before the detailed steps, you should know that newer operation systems of Windows and macOS do have system-built screen recording utilities. You can use Game Bar from Windows 10 and QuickTime from Mac for instant screen capture. However, due to copyright issues and varying features, these internal tools usually lack recording flexibility and are unfriendly to system audio capture.

Therefore, a desktop screen recorder called RecMaster is especially recommended here. It’s an easy and versatile screencasting program available for both Windows and macOS. And it’s able to grab any action (with audio) and stream content (both video and video included) on the monitor.

Advanced users are also free to customize the recording.

The benefits includes:

  • Adjusting the target area
  • Self-defining the recording time,
  • Adding webcam/watermark overlay
  • Mixing voiceover from a microphone
  • Defining mouse cursor effects
  • Taking annotations
  • Easy editing
  • One-click YouTube sharing.

Now you can give it a free download and then start recording your computer screen as easily as A-B-C.

STEP 1. Download, install, and launch.

Once your system is supported by RecMaster, download it above and finish the setup by following the wizard. Whenever you want to make a video of the computer screen, open it up to go ahead.

STEP 2. Finish recording settings.

Depending on your actual capture demand, you should pick the most proper recording mode from RecMaster’s main UI.

And then confirm the details regarding format, quality, frame rate, audio device/volume, and monitor (if there are multiple ones).

You can also schedule time (if you want to create an automatic recording), add watermarks, set cursor effects, etc.

STEP 3. Start the recording and annotate it if necessary.

When your preparation is done, it’s time to get recording started with RecMaster.

You can use either the software button or keyboard hotkeys.

While capturing, to highlight key points and annotation, you can click the drawing pen icon on the floating toolbar. This will pop up the control panel, and then make any annotations you like.

By using the Mac version of RecMaster, you can click on the pen icon on the interface to pop up the annotation tool.

STEP 4. Stop the recording.

Click the stop button or press the right shortcuts to end the recording and load the file into the recording list. Now it’s time to preview, rename, edit, and share it with your audience.

With the Mac and Windows versions of RecMaster, you can cut and import videos to merge.

When you import a video, the aspect ratio and resolution should be consistent with the original video. Otherwise, the video may be stretched.

Recording certain streaming content comes with a caveat. If the content is protected, your screen recording will be detected and blocked by the platform. So the final recording would be a black-screen video. Under this circumstance, you will have to rely on a professional streaming recorder.

How to Make Screen Video on iPhone or Android (11/10)?

Since iOS 11 was released in 2017, iPhones have integrated with a system-attached screen recorder to produce screen video with sound.

Google once built this kind of functionality into its Android 10 beta, but quit it in the official release. Some other manufacturers add this feature to their Android 10 devices by themselves to optimize the user experience. The noted brands include Samsung, OnePlus, LG, Xiaomi, and Huawei.

Luckily, later on, among the new tricks of Android 11, Screen Recorder is finally opened for more to help people document or share what’s going on on their small screen.

To use the native screen recorder on mobile devices, just access it from the quick setting panel/notification bar and tap its icon. Different Android mobiles may have varying recording capabilities. If you have problems with the integrated screen recorder, you can refer to its official support center for more details.

It’s possible that your phone’s operating system is too old to use the screen recording feature. Or the system-contained tool fails to capture sound from the phone. In that case, you can use another standalone screen recorder app. Screen recorders such as AZ/Mobizen for Android and Du for iOS are examples.

Alternatively, why not mirror your phone to a PC for smoother capture? Or, why not initiate the same recording on a more powerful and safer computer to avoid weak performance or security risks?


All in all, there is a broad range of decent screen recorder options from both system and software providers. While you needn’t worry about how to make screen videos on any of your smart devices easily. Instead, simply take your time to choose the one that is most convenient for you within your budget. >> How to choose a screen recorder
