-- Tuesday, July 04, 2017
If you are away and there is a live streaming video you don't want to miss(a Live Sports Match, for example), what would you do? Now, I would recommend a solution for it. The idea would be: download an app on your computer which can automatically record the live streaming video for you even you are not home. When you come back, you can watch the recording video and in this way, you would never miss the live show or match. Now, please continue to check on this guide and you can deal with it on your own in several simple steps.

Guide: Capture Live Stream Videos Easily

To capture live stream videos you like, the Screen Recorder can be a terrific choice for you to use. By using the program, you won't miss a single live streaming video as it allows you to automatically capture videos with its Task Scheduler feature.

Screen Recorder app records any live streaming video from Twitch TV, BBC, CNN, and Live stream, as well as many other live video websites, whether manually or automatically. Now, please continue to read for the details.

Bonus: If you are a Mac user, you can record your Mac screen with the QuickTime Player.

1. Launch the QuickTime Player on Mac and then navigate to "File > New Screen Recording".

2. You can choose to click to record the full screen, or click and drag to select a cropped portion of your display to record.
3. Click on the "Start Recording" and it would automatically record your Mac screen.
4. Click on the stop button in your Menu Bar or simply or press Command-Control-Escape to stop recording your screen.

Bottom Line: As you can see above, the Screen recorder can work well in both Windows and Mac system. The feature which impressed us most would be the possibility to create a task schedule for the live streaming videos. In the other hand, though you can record Mac screen and even edit the recorded video with the built-in QuickTime Player at ease, you are not supported to capture live streaming videos automatically. In this way, you are recommended to use the Screen Recorder to record any live streaming video online.
