Recording from screen

Audials One's Record from screen tool records the output of your computer screen.

The Record from screen tool doesn't work as automated and elegant as Audials One's other video recording tools. For example, the controls of the video player are recorded whenever they are visible.

However, the Record from screen tool is the most reliable tool when it comes to video detection. All that it needs is a video picture on your screen, accompanied by an audio signal. This makes Record from screen a good fallback tool if a video cannot be detected or recorded by the other recordings tools.

Additionally, the Record from screen tool is able to capture videos including subtitles.
