Step by step guide to screen record Netflix

Here's how to screen record Netflix using Vmaker!

Step 1: Open Netflix in your browser and launch Vmaker 

Tip: Pin Vmaker’s chrome extension to your browser for the ease of accessibility

Step 2: Select "Current tab recording" mode to record your video with internal audio

Note: There are two main modes of screen recording in Vmaker - "Screen" and "Screen + Webcam," and by default, Vmaker will be in "Screen" mode.

But if you wish to record your video along with a webcam bubble then you can select the “Screen + Webcam” mode.

Step 3: Now go to Preferences under settings and enable "Use system audio' to record your internal audio.

Note: Just make sure that your external microphone is muted since you're trying to record only your internal audio. If not, then you can keep your external microphone on.

Step 4: That's it. Now you are all set to screen record your Netflix video. Just click on the "start recording" button and play your video in full-screen mode.

Step 5 To stop recording, click on the red dock buttons or use the shortcut keys. Once you stop the recording, your video will be automatically uploaded to your private Vmaker cloud account.

Note: Since all your recordings will be stored in your private cloud account, you can record your videos without worrying about filling up your computer’s memory.

Step 6 Edit, download and share your recording.

Once you finish your recording, a player page will pop up from where you can edit, download, and share your video.

Tips for screen recording Netflix

  • Closeout all the external tabs and applications: External tabs and applications can push distracting notifications, or they can slow down your system's processing power. So just make sure while recording keeps things as minimal as possible just to be on the safer side.
  • Record with a stable internet connection: A fluctuating internet connection can deter the quality of your video being streamed and recorded. So just make sure that you have a stable internet connection while recording. 
  • Mute your external microphone: Since you're planning to capture your videos only with your system audio, just make sure that your external microphone is muted before starting your recording.
