Recording Streaming Videos on Mac with the Movavi Screen Capture Studio for Mac Review

  2. Click ‘REC’ to start the recording, and play the video that you want to record simultaneously.
  3. Stop the recording when you’re done, and save it by clicking ‘Save as’ and choosing a format that fits. If you like you can optimize it for various devices and platforms using the presets that are available.

Not only can you record streaming video on Mac in this way, but you can also use the other features of the software to help you out too.
