AnsweredHow Do I Capture a Live Stream Video Source From YouTube?

I'm trying to stream with a camera on the stream. I stream to YouTube and I window capture on OBS. I used to have two monitors so I would fully screen the source and it would look good and I could record on OBS, but currently, I only have a Windows laptop so is it possible to just capture the video?

Yes, you can capture a live stream video source from YouTube with only one monitor. You can either choose the Windows built-in to record or a more professional screen recorder. I will provide both methods for you. Read through and follow the steps. 

🚩Record with Windows Xbox GameBar:

Step 1. Press "Windows" and "G" together to initiate the GameBar on your computer. Click on the "Capture" icon.

Step 2. Press the "Record" button to begin recording on your Windows computer. You should know that the built-in recording feature doesn't allow recording the desktop and file explorer. If you need to record them together, try a more professional screen recorder. 

Step 3. You can choose to record with "Microphone" or not. Click the "Stop" button to finish recording. 

🚩Record with a third-party recording tool:

Before guiding you with steps, I should let you know my recommendation first, EaseUS RecExperts. This screen recorder performs more powerfully than the Windows screen recorder as it is designed for both novices and pros. You can press the download button below. Now, let's see how to use EaseUS RecExperts to record your streaming without time lag.

Step 1. Open EaseUS RecExperts on your computer. Choose the "Region" option to record your streaming window only. 

Step 2. Switch on "Webcam" and "Microphone" on its main interface. Then, click the red "Rec" button to begin your recording. 

Step 3. Press "Stop" to stop your recording. You will see the recorded files stored on your computer automatically.

I hope this post has solved your problem.
