Nowadays the internet is full of videos, ranging from the ones on YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms – to random websites. If you were hoping to extract videos from these websites using third-party apps, however, you’ll find that it can be difficult.
Generally, most third-party apps tend to be pretty limited, and will only allow you to extract and download videos from certain platforms. On top of that they may have other restrictions, such as the video duration, quality, and so on. That is why if you’d like a universal way to extract videos from websites – you should try using Movavi Screen Recorder.
Unlike other methods, Movavi Screen Recorder won’t ‘download’ the video – but will record it directly from your screen instead. In this way it is able to extract any videos from any websites, and you’ll be able to determine the quality too.
It isn’t difficult to set up Movavi Screen Recorder to extract a video from a website, and if you want to give it a try open up a website with a video that you’d like to save. Once you do, launch the screen recorder and define the capture area by drawing a frame using your mouse cursor.
If the frame isn’t that accurate you can resize and reposition it, or you could use one of the presets in the list on the interface. It may be a good idea to also check that the ‘System Audio’ icon on the interface is highlighted, and click on it if it isn’t so that Movavi Screen Recorder captures the sound from the video that you want to save.
Another helpful feature in Movavi Screen Recorder is its timer that you can set by clicking on the ‘alarm clock’ icon. By setting a timer it will automatically stop recording after a fixed duration, so you don’t need to manually do so.
Assuming all that checks out, you can click ‘REC’ at any time to start recording and either leave it to automatically stop on the timer or click ‘Stop’ when it is done. After the recording is complete Movavi Screen Recorder will automatically save the video to your hard drive as an MKV file and open up a preview window.
That preview window that Movavi Screen Recorder opens up is more useful than you may realize, as it will not only let you go over the video footage that was recorded, but also allow you to trim out any unwanted parts from your video. On top of that you can click ‘Save As’ and save your video, to either save the changes you’ve made or use a different format.
Make no mistake there are lots of other features in Movavi Screen Recorder, some of which will let you capture keyboard and mouse actions, adjust the frame rate, set the volume levels, and so on. If all you want to do is extract video from website you won’t really need to use any of them – but it is handy to know that they’re there nonetheless.
