QuickTime has a neat little trick that some may not know about, it can record your screen.
Use it to record a how-to video how to navigate System Preferences, or how to use Final Cut Pro, or record a MacDevOps:YVR talk.
The first two MacDevOps:YVR conferences needed to be converted to a suitable format for YouTube and using QuickTime screen recording + Soundflower is the way I chose to do it.
Note: Soundflower is needed to redirect the audio to QuickTime. Screenrecording with QuickTime does not capture the audio without Soundflower.
MacDevOps Screen recording steps
- Install Soundflower (Soundflower-2.0b2.dmg)
- Set audio output to SoundFlower 2ch
- Set QT screen recording to Soundflower audio
- Start screen recording (select screen area)
- Play website audio / video (Safari / Other )
- Stop both. Edit and trim QT video as needed
- Upload to YouTube
- Tag video (mdoyvr, yvr, MacDevOps, MacAdmin, MacIT), put in proper playlist
I own Rogue Amoeba’s excellent Audio Hijack application and have used this app for audio capture (podcast interviews, etc), but I couldn’t get it to work in this case. It might have also required their Rogue Amoeba’s Loopback app which I did not own. Since I’ve used Soundflower previously I used it here in this case.
