Choosing Your Video Type
From the extension, you'll see a modal presenting you with three different video layouts. You'll be able to choose from
- Screen & face
- Screen only
- Face only
Choose one of the options and then click Start Recording. If you select one of the two options that include recording your screen, you'll then see a modal where you can choose if you'd like to share your entire screen, an application window, or an individual tab.
Once you've made your selection, click Share. You'll see a three second countdown and then your video will begin recording.
If you've chosen Face only, you'll be brought right to the countdown and then your video will begin recording.
Once your video has started recording, you'll see a few things.
At the left of your screen, you'll see a status bar with your length of recording, the red recording symbol, a stop button, and a restart option.
You'll also see a bar appear at the bottom of your screen so you can stop sharing at any time. You can also choose to hide this bar.
When you're finished, use either the stop symbol or click Stop sharing. You'll be brought to a window where you can edit your video, make a gif, and more! Check out our other help articles to learn more about those features!
