On a Mac, you can use "QuickTime Player's" built-in screen recording feature to capture your screen with audio. With macOS, there is a pre-installed program called QuickTime Player that lets you record everything that happens on your screen, including system audio and microphone input. You can learn how to record your screen and audio by following the steps below:
Open QuickTime Player: Launch the QuickTime Player application, which you can find in the "Applications" folder or by using the Spotlight search (Cmd + Space).
Start a New Screen Recording: In QuickTime Player, navigate to the "File" menu in the menu bar and select "New Screen Recording."
Adjust Recording Settings: After choosing "New Screen Recording," a small recording control window will appear. By default, audio is not included in the recording. To add audio, click the small arrow next to the red record button to reveal additional recording options.
Select Audio Source: Within the recording options, you can choose the microphone you want to use for audio input. To record both screen and microphone audio, select your preferred microphone from the list. For capturing system audio (e.g., sound from videos or applications), ensure the "Built-in Microphone" or "Internal Microphone" is selected.
Begin Recording: Once you've selected your audio source, click the red record button in the recording control window to initiate the screen recording.
Record Your Screen: Click anywhere on your screen to start recording the entire screen. If you prefer to record a specific area, click and drag to select the desired region.
Stop Recording: To end the recording, click on the "Stop" button in the menu bar at the top of your screen. Alternatively, you can use the "Control + Cmd + Esc" keyboard shortcut to stop the recording.
Save Your Recording: After stopping the recording, QuickTime Player will open the recording as a new window. You can review your recording and save it by clicking "File" in the menu bar and selecting "Save."
Choose a location on your Mac where you want to save the recording, give it a suitable name, and click "Save."
Following these steps, you can successfully record your screen with audio using QuickTime Player on your Mac.
