2 Select recording area and audio

When you are going to capture the desktop screen or record online videos, you should set the recording area and audio well. There are some conditions you should pay attention to:

a. If you are going to record YouTube videos or other online videos, you should make sure whether you want to record with full screen mode or choose the recording area by yourself. For the full screen videos, you need to choose a high resolution of your video, or the recorded video might not meet your requirement. At the same time, you should turn off microphone as the outside noise around you will decrease the quality of your captured video.

b. If you only need the microphone voice, you should turn off the system audio with one click. For example, if you are going to make a video guide, you need to explain the steps of your presentation. Here, you do not need the system audio. Any audio in your computer will makes people uncomfortable during the whole representing process.

c. It is available for Skype video calls and other similar conditions. Under this circumstance, you should keep both system audio and microphone on. Why? Because if you want to capture the whole chatting record with your friend, you should make sure both your voice and your friend's voice can be heard and captured.
