Easy to use. Works great. Highly recommend.

I’ve used a few different screen capturing programs before, and as is mentioned in a few other reviews audio is always the issue with these programs - and sometimes the developers don’t make it clear whether or not you can capture quality audio to go with the video.

This application makes it easy to capture both the screen and internal system audio from your computer. There’s a driver you need to down load from the company’s website, and it takes about 30 seconds to do so. When you open the recording screen and click on the audio recorder, you’ll be taken to the program’s website to download the plug-in. Double click, it installs and you're set. No set up, no fiddling around with creating different profiles in your audio system. More, when you return to the app it recognizes that the plug-in is installed and works instantly to record audio. No need to restart, which was great.

Video quality was perfect for what I was doing. It’s pricy at $30, but well worth the money based on the time, engery and frustration I’ve had with other apps. Happy to recommend this product.

5 minutes in and I’ve recorded off my Mac screen


Only 5 minutes into using this software so keep that in mind but it’s super easy to figure out recording the screen. Four minutes were spent trying to figure out if it records sound which it does but only if you download another file called Movavi Sound Grabber. After a couple recordings it popped up a link to it. I turned on my System Audio and maxed it out and turned on my microphone and chose Soundflower 64channel. I’m not sure if Soundflower came from my Audacity install or not but when I recorded I got a great video with great sound. It will be fun playing with this software.

Thank you for the positive feedback! We're always trying to make our software easy to use.

Great product EXCEPT...


System audio was not something that I could enable; clicking on the button to enable it brought me to the Movavi download page for AudioGrabber. While I wouldn’t have minded that extra step, the link to download AudioGrabber did not work…the request simply timed out. So, no system audio available when I needed it, which was the entire reason for this purchase…bummer.

UPDATE: My workaround was to download the free trial version of Screen Capture directly from Movavi, NOT through the App Store, and that seemed to install whatever was missing, so when I relaunched the App Store version, I had system audio. Still displeased to have spent so much time figuring out a workaround when the beauty of the App Store should be that you install the app…and it just works.
