Did you know that a lot of the videos that you watch online are actually ‘Flash’ videos? For quite some time, Flash has used to stream videos – and although nowadays there are HTML5 alternatives, it is still popular on various video sharing and social media platforms. On top of that there are also countless Flash-based animations on certain websites too, so there’s really no shortage of Flash videos out there.
Because these videos are streamed, you will need an active internet connection to watch them. However if you know how to ‘grab’ and capture Flash video so that you can save them onto your hard drive, you can then watch them at your own convenience rather than having to stream them every time.
Assuming that piques your interest, all you need is Movavi Screen Capture Studio. With it you can record anything that you need from your screen, and all you need to do is:
- Launch Movavi Screen Capture Studio and select ‘Capture Screen’ in the main menu.
- Adjust the capture frame (i.e. the yellow frame) to encompass the Flash video that you want to record.
- Check that the ‘System Audio’ icon has a green tick so that it will record the audio as well – and click it once so that the tick appears if it isn’t already there.
- Click ‘REC’ and get the recording underway while playing the video at the same time.
- Click ‘Stop’ to stop the recording when it is done, then save it by clicking ‘Save’.
By following these simple steps, you will be able to grab any Flash videos you need and then save them in a format of your choosing. If you want you could explore the other features in Movavi Screen Capture Studio, some of which may be extremely useful.
