Video Recorder Software VS Online YouTube Downloader

In past times, you can download YouTube videos for free with many online services. Once you search “download YouTube videos” or other similar words in Google, there are various online YouTube video downloaders. It seems that you can download a YouTube video by pasting its URL easily. Sadly, it is not a smart choice in recent years.

- “Why can’t I download YouTube videos anymore in 2018?”

- “I’m unable to save YouTube videos offline using the free YouTube downloader…”

There are many complaints about “can’t download YouTube videos”. Because YouTube improves the codes and site layouts constantly. Thus, it will be harder than before to post a video on Instagram from a link of YouTube.

During this time, you can record YouTube videos instead. It is a good way to post YouTube videos on Instagram without the copyright protection and other limitations. The most important thing is that you can choose which video part to download freely.

Steps to Record a YouTube Video as a MP4 File

Step 1 Choose the video recorder

Step 2 Set the screen size and audio source

You need to set the recording area first. Choose “Full Screen”, “Fixed Region” or “Custom Region” from the “Display” drop-down menu. Well, you can drag and drop the screen area with your mouse freely. If you want to record yourself in the video, you can turn on “Webcam” too.

Later, turn on “System Sound” and “Microphone” options based on your need. For instance, if you want to record the streaming system audio only, you can turn on “System Sound” and turn off “Microphone”. It’s also supported to add your oral explanation to the video. In addition, you can volume up or down manually.
