At one point in time Flash videos and online streaming video were inseparable, as it was the format and delivery method of choice of any and all streamed content. Today that is no longer the case, but many online streaming videos still utilize a Flash-based format, and some of the old Flash animations are still around as well.
Just like other online streaming videos however, it tends to be difficult to save Flash videos and watch them offline as most platforms don’t provide that option. As such you will need an alternative, and the most reliable is to record Flash videos from your screen using Movavi Screen Recorder so that you can save them afterwards.
Although initially that may seem like a fairly complicated alternative, in reality it is anything but. In fact if you want to capture Flash videos using Movavi Screen Recorder you can set it up and start recording in minutes – at most.
All that you need to do is launch Movavi Screen Recorder and define the capture area by drawing a frame over the Flash video with your mouse cursor. Then make sure it is set to record audio from your speakers, by checking that the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted or clicking on it once if it isn’t.
After you’ve done both those things you can click ‘REC’ to start recording and play the Flash video within 3 seconds of doing so. Using the controls in Movavi Screen Recorder’s interface you can cancel, stop, or pause the recording at any point.
When you do click ‘Stop’, Movavi Screen Recorder will open a preview window where you can go over the footage you’ve recorded. In that window you’ll also be able to trim out any unwanted parts of the footage that was captured, then save it in a format of your choice.
As you can see it’s really very simple, but if you want more detailed instructions you’ll find them at www.movavi.com/support/how-to/how-to-capture-flash-video.html.
Make no mistake you can adjust the other recording parameters as well, such as the frame rate, sound levels, or set Movavi Screen Recorder to capture keyboard and mouse actions. Additionally the recording itself can be automated as well, and scheduled to start or stop at a specific time. Be sure to explore these features, as they could make it that much more convenient to record Flash (and other) videos.
