If you want to record a YouTube video without using third-party software or apps, try Xbox Game Bar on Windows and QuickTime Player on Mac. These two are built-in screen recording tools that can capture YouTube videos with simple clicks.

Record a YouTube video with Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10 and later:

Step 1. Press the "Windows" + "G" keys simultaneously on your keyboard to open the Xbox Game Bar.

Step 2. Click on the "Capture" icon to toggle your Capture widget. Then, click on the camera icon to start recording.

Step 3. Hit the stop button or press "Windows" + "ALT" + "R" on your keyboard to end the recording.

Record a YouTube video with QuickTime Player on Mac:

Step 1. Run QuickTime Player on your Mac computer and go to "File" then "New Movie Recording".

Step 2. Go to the YouTube web page you want to record and click the "Record" button to start recording.

Step 3. Click the "Stop" button or press "Command + Control + Esc (Escape)" to stop the recording.

However, Xbox Game Bar and QuickTime Player only offer basic recording features. To record YouTube videos without a time limit or taking up too much storage space, you can try EaseUS RecExperts.
