"User Friendly and Does a Phenomenal Job capturing everything you need"

The quality of the output once you finish recording is top-notch. Very intuitive and made it a breeze for me to do quick videos for clients and was easy to share to them across multiple mediums.

"Need to record? Vmaker is the tool!"

I like the possibility of saving the screen and also having video of myself explaining. I love to share my browser and show what I'm doing to my clients. It's great versus other similar apps, the chrome extension works wonderfully!

"More intuitive to use than Loom and VidYard, plus has virtual background, More reliable than vidyard"

Good UI. Virtual backgrounds are great, editor is very easy to use. Seems to be very reliable so far (some of the other online tools glitch out and fail)

Vmaker Mac recorder supports macOS 10.14 (Mojave), macOS 10.15 (Catalina), macOS 11.1 (BigSur), macOS 12 (Monterey), and macOS 13 (Ventura).

QuickTime can only record your screen with microphone audio. It cannot capture your system audio. But, don’t worry. You can use a third-party mac screen recording application like Vmaker to capture both internal (system) audio and external (microphone) audio.

Vmaker is one of the best free screen recorders available online for Mac, Windows, and Chromebooks.

Here are some of the popular YouTube Recorders available online:
  • Vmaker
  • Ezvid
  • Filmora Wondershare
  • Bandicam
  • Screencast-O-Matic
Yes! You can screen record on Mac using the shortcut key combination (Shift + Command + 5). But, this built-in Mac recorder doesn't record the internal audio (computer audio). It only captures the external audio (microphone audio). You would need an external mac screen recording tool like Vmaker to record both internal and mic audio on Mac.
You can record any number of presentations and tutorials using a Mac screen recording software like Vmaker. Follow these five simple steps to get started:
  • Sign up & Install the application
  • Select your recording preferences
  • Start the recording
  • Stop the recording
  • Edit & share with others
Both the in-built screen recording tools on Mac are only capable of recording external (microphone) audio. If you want to record the internal audio (computer audio), then, you would need the help of an external Mac screen recorder like Vmaker.

QuickTime Player is definitely a good screen recorder. But, it does have some serious disadvantages. It doesn't capture system audio and mic audio simultaneously. This is the reason most people prefer to use a third-party screen recording tool like Vmaker.
QuickTime Player doesn't have any fixed time limits for your recordings. However, it's important to note that its recording functionalities are limited.
Yes. Mac has two in-built screen recorders. But unfortunately, neither of them are built to capture the computer & mic audio at the same time. That's why we recommend you use a third party screen recorder like Vmaker. Usually, third party screen recorders come with advanced features and allow you to capture both computer and mic audio simultaneously.
To screen record a video without background noise, you can choose a screen recorder that comes with a built-in noise control feature. Today, most of the popular screen recording software like Vmaker, Ease US RecExperts, and Loom come with a built-in noise control feature. All you have to do is enable the feature before you start recording your screen! Here's how to do it using Vmaker:
  • Open the Vmaker application
  • Click on the three dots on the top-right corner of your recoding pop-up and choose 'Preferences.'
  • Enable the 'Noise control' feature
  • Start recording your screen
If you want to capture your computer audio, then you will need the help of a third-party screen recording application like Vmaker.
