💻For Windows users:

Since the reason may be complicated, I suggest you try a comprehensive third-party screen recorder like EaseUS RecExperts.

This screen recording software is compatible with both Windows and Mac devices. It can record the full or part of the screen, record audio, record webcam, record microphone, and even record them all at once.

The best thing is that it offers a schedule recording function, which can record the screen automatically when you don't have time to do it manually, especially when you are playing games. Download it to record your Windows screen without back, lag, or a time limit!

📱For iPhone users:

There are three possible reasons. Below are the reasons and the according solutions:

💡1. Some apps might not allow you to record audio or video.

Don't record the screen while running these apps. 

💡2. You have Screen Recording disabled.

Check if the screen recording feature is disabled. If so, turn it on. Do it by:

  1. 1. Go to Settings and tap Screen Time > tap Turn on Screen Time(twice).
  2. 2. Choose This is My XXX or This is My Child's XXX.
  3. 3. Tap Content & Privacy Restrictions, and turn on Content & Privacy Restrictions.

💡3. The iOS version on your iPhone is outdated.

Try to restart your phone first. If nothing changes, update your iPhone to the latest iOS version.
