How to record a live stream

Live streams are not only gamers' turf. Lots of vloggers stream from time to time to establish closer rapport with their audience, throw a Q&A session, and just have a good time. But are these nuggets of wisdom doomed to be lost? Not at all.

With our online solution, you don't need to buy and install a special streaming video recorder or depend on the mercy of the streamer. Clideo's Video Editor allows you to record the screen, the webcam video, or both, then edit the recording and combine it with other visuals and an audio track, if needed.

To avail of our service, you don't have to sign up or update your account to Clideo Pro, as you'll still have 15 minutes of free recording. But if you need more time, consider purchasing a subscription.

Like other Clideo tools, Video Editor is user-friendly and easy to utilize. But just in case you like reading manuals, here it is.

  1. Open the Editor

    Go to Video Editor and hit the "Get started" button.
