It depends on your recording purposes and the types of videos.

Suppose you intend to use the recorded stuff for earning purposes or commercial purposes without proper authorization from the copyright holder. In that case, it is illegal, as most of the videos on YouTube are copyright protected.

However, if you just record YouTube streaming videos or audio for your personal use, it is not illegal.

In conclusion, while screen recording from YouTube for personal use is generally permissible, remember that it is crucial to respect copyright laws and YouTube's terms of service. If you do no know how to capture video content from YouTube, I always recommend a powerful screen recorder called EaseUS RecExperts.

This program supports capturing up to 8K on your desktop; besides, you can screen record YouTube as long as you want. Unlike other video capture software, it will not learn any watermark on your recordings! Most importantly, you can edit your YouTube recordings immediately here without downloading or installing any third-party software, then export the recordings in your desired video or audio format! Now, let's check the tutorial below:

Step 1. Launch this software on your computer, and play the YouTube video you want to capture.

Step 2. Click Settings to adjust the recording parameters according to your needs, like video quality, FPS, and more.

Step 3. Select a recording mode from Full Screen or Region according to your needs.

Step 4. Once done, you can press the REC button to start your recording.
