How To Record Your Screen And Yourself At The Same Time + Best Teleprompter For Youtube Videos
Wondering how to record your screen and yourself at the same time? In this video marketing for business tutorial, you'll learn how to record your computer screen using QuickTime, as well as how to use the Parrot teleprompter, the best teleprompter for YouTube videos. So let's get right into this screen recording for online business video, so that you can make the most out of your digital marketing corporate streams.
In this video, I'll be sharing how to record just your screen, how to record your screen and yourself at the same time, as well as how to record just yourself. I personally have a Mac, so I use QuickTime, which comes with any Mac computer for free, to record all of my YouTube videos.
To record just your screen, open up QuickTime, click on 'file' from the panel up top, and then on 'new screen recording'. A panel will appear at the bottom of the screen where you can set a number of screen recording settings.
These include capture entire screen, capture selected window, capture selected portion, record entire screen, or record selected portion. You can also click on 'options' to choose where to save your screen recording (desktop, documents, mail, messages, QuickTime Player or other location - I choose QuickTime Player), to select whether to enable or disable a timer (none, 5 seconds or 10 seconds - I select 5 seconds), to choose which microphone to use (none or MacBook Pro microphone - I choose MacBook Pro microphone), as well as to select other options, including show floating thumbnail, remember last selection and show mouse clicks, which is the only one I select.
When recording just my screen, I always choose 'record selected portion', and then capture just my internet browser, for instance, without the URL box, and without my computer's menu and dock bar. To start recording your screen, click on 'record' from QuickTime's panel.
Since my videos are usually tutorials, I always make sure that I open up all the tabs and windows I'll be using in my screen recording beforehand. For instance, for the 'Adding Downloadable Documents On Wix' tutorial I've been referring to in the past few videos, these include Wix's homepage, my own Wix account, as well as tabs with my other videos on 'How To Make Separate Pages In Your Wix Website', 'How To Upload & Change Images On Your Wix Website', as well as 'How To Add, Link & Customize A Button On Wix'.
Since I already scripted the YouTube video, if you want more details on how to do that, make sure to watch my video on 'how to write a script for a YouTube video', I'll leave the link to it in the description box below, I open up the script on my phone, and read it out as I follow the steps. Once you're done recording your screen, click on the stop icon that'll appear on the top, right-hand side of the menu.
To record your screen and yourself at the same time, follow the same steps as before to record just your computer screen. But, before clicking on 'record' from QuickTime's panel, click on 'file' from the menu up top, and then on 'new movie recording'.
You'll notice that your video will now be apparent as well. The first thing you can do is decrease the size of this movie recording window so that it's in its smallest possible size, and move it so that it's either on the top left, top right, bottom left or bottom right of the screen.
Just make sure that the movie recording window is within the selected portion of the screen recording window if you chose that option rather than to do a screen recording of the entire screen. Also, with the movie recording window selected, click on 'view' from the menu up top, and then on 'float on top'.
This setting ensures that even if you change tabs in your internet browser for instance, or open up another window, the movie recording window is always apparent. This is how you guarantee that you record your screen and yourself at the same time.
Now all that's left to do is click on 'record' from QuickTime's panel on the screen recording. Do not click on record on the movie recording window since that will already be captured as well.
Record whatever you wish. Once you're done recording your screen, click on the stop icon that'll appear on the top, right-hand side of the menu.
Now I'm going to show you how to record yourself. To record just yourself, open up QuickTime, click on 'file' from the panel up top, and then on 'new movie recording'. You'll notice that your video will now be apparent, but don't worry since the video has not yet started to record.
You can click on the downward pointing arrow next to the record button to change cameras (in my case, FaceTime HD Camera or iPhone), microphone (in my case, MacBook Pro Microphone or iPhone), as well as set the quality (high or maximum - I set mine to maximum). To start recording yourself, click on the red record button.
Just to be safe, I always wait 5 seconds before talking. If you're recording yourself and following a YouTube video script at the same time, feel free to open up that video script up on your screen. I also like resizing the movie recording window and making it smaller, so I can easily see the script and myself.
Since you're just recording yourself, and not recording your screen and yourself at the same time, just your video will be visible. Before I purchased a teleprompter, which we'll be talking about in more detail in a bit, I would read and memorize the first sentence I wanted to record, in this case 'Wondering how to add downloadable documents on Wix?', look straight into the camera, say that sentence, 'Wondering how to add downloadable documents on Wix?', then look back at my YouTube video script, read and memorize the second sentence I wanted to record, and repeat this same process over and over until I recorded both my YouTube video's intro and outro.
There's no need to stop and start the video recording with your face each time you record a new sentence. You can just record it as one long video with pauses, and then edit those pauses out and separate the YouTube video's intro and outro when editing the video, which we'll be talking about in more detail in my next video, so stay tuned for that.
Now if you'd like to take your video recording to the next level, I'd highly suggest purchasing a teleprompter. Since I started using a teleprompter to record my YouTube video's intros and outros, I not only cut my video recording time in half, but also cut in half the time it takes to edit those intros and outros.
In my opinion, the best teleprompter for YouTube videos is the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter, which I'll link to in the description box below. Since I often use my laptop's camera to record YouTube videos, I also purchased the Universal Parrot Teleprompter Mount, which comes with this clip on attachment to easily connect your teleprompter with your computer.
The only downside of the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter is that it doesn't come with clear instructions on how to set it up, so it took me a while to figure everything out. The teleprompter comes with 13 mounting rings which you can connect to your camera lens.
If you're using the clip on Universal Parrot Teleprompter Mount, you'll need to switch the ring that comes with the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter to the smallest one, and press on the Universal Parrot Teleprompter Mount to that ring so that they connect.
To start using this best teleprompter for YouTube videos, slide out the protective case and dust protector. The very bottom of the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter has a push-down phone tray, where you can place your phone and then have the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter mirror your script.
The Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter actually has a free app that you can download, called Parrot, where you can import your video scripts to be mirrored. So let's do that. I'll click on the + sign on the apps top, right-hand side, add as the filename Wix downloads, and where it says 'script content', paste my YouTube video's intro and outro that I want to record with the best teleprompter for YouTube videos. Once you're done adding everything in, click on 'save' on the top, right-hand side.
You can also change the teleprompter settings on the left of the screen. I set my font size to 40, scroll speed to 3, margins to 200, turn mirror mode on and lock orientation. Once you have set everything, place your smartphone on the push-down phone tray.
If you click on the script, you'll now see that it's mirrored on the teleprompter. Now all that's left to do is clip on the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter over your camera, press play on QuickTime's movie recording of yourself, press play on your smartphone's teleprompter either with your finger or using the included Parrot Bluetooth Remote, and start recording.
I'm actually going to mount the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter on my computer, and show you what I see on my end when using the best teleprompter for YouTube videos. I'm actually recording this on my iPad so hopefully you can see clearly.
When I click on play on the teleprompter, the words start to move down. I've noticed that I naturally talk at the scroll speed setting of 3, but feel free to change that setting for yourself if you talk faster or slower.
Then all that's left to do is look into the camera lens, read out what's on the teleprompter and you're good to go. It won't even look like you're reading.
If you want an example, check out this very video's intro and outro, which was recorded with this teleprompter. Once you're done recording yourself, click on pause on the teleprompter, as well as on stop in QuickTime.
