Hi there!

As a general rule, YouTube can not detect a screen recorder that is being used to capture YouTube videos. And that is just for the normal videos on YouTube platforms. 

However, if you try to screen record on YouTube Live with a screen recorder, it might detect your recording tool, as you can not capture anything instead of a black image. Of course, some screen recording tools may bypass YouTube Live's detection algorithms (like EaseUS RecExperts), and then you can still capture videos successfully.

So, to ensure you can record any video from YouTube without being detected successfully, finding an excellent YouTube screen recorder is necessary. Based on my recording experience for years, I think EaseUS RecExperts is your destination.

Record Anything on Your Windows PC

Record screen/audio/webcam without a time limit or watermark

Offering various advanced recording features, this software lets you capture YouTube audio or videos in the way you like. Besides, there will be no watermark on your recordings. Most importantly, it provides an Enhanced Video mode that enables you to screen record YouTube Live without a black screen, as it will bypass its detection algorithms. Also, you can choose to record videos from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and more.

But, you need to keep in mind that you cannot upload the videos that you record from YouTube to the same platform, then sooner or later, your videos will eventually get deleted if they are copyrighted.

If my answer is helpful, give me a thumb now!
