Can I record audio when screen recording? Are there settings for the quality of recording, etc?

    Can I record audio when screen recording?

    Depends on which app you are using and what form of audio you want to record. E.g., QT X can record audio via the line in or built-in microphone option but not the system audio. On the other hand, an application like Snapz Pro X can record microphone and/or the Mac system audio.

     

     

    Are there settings for the quality of recording, etc?

    QT X has two quality presets from which to choose. Third-party screen capture apps may have other options. E.g., Snapz Pro X allows the user to select any of audio and/or video compression options for which the system is configured for final output.

    I had this same problem. I fixed it by:

     

    - run QT

    - select new screen recording

    - before clicking the red record button, click the small triangle on the right side of that window. It will show options

    - the first recording I performed, the audio was set to "none". Change this setting to your internal microphone.

     

    Now record.

    I think it's cRaZy that it doesn't have "system audio out" as an option for recording these screen captures. 

     

    I figured I needed soundflower or use an old Mac with audio in / out jacks (to run a cable) but I thought I'd Google it and all I find is a bunch of people with the same problem (probably) using soundflower as an option (or some other software).

     

    Very silly.

    This is isane how hard it is to just record system audio!

     

    Some company should make it, it would get a ton of downloads!
