  1. Hi. Thanks for this. It has worked but there is a delay in the recording with my voice being quicker than the actual movie of me talking making it look very badly dubbed. Is there a way around this?

  2. Hi,
    Is there a recommended way to add a background image before I record so that I don’t show my office background but maybe a solid colour or landscape or city backdrop? How can I do this before I press record. Ie: Like adding in a virtual background in Zoom before you join in on a call. Many thanks. Appreciated. Dennis

  3. I tried to use this to record myself talking over a powerpoint presentation, but as soon as I put the powerpoint into slideshow mode the Quicktime controls disappeared. Is it possible to do this?

  4. I am able to record the screen and myself as a preasenter. However I cannot see the presenter window on the screen recording

    1. I had this problem, but I was able to resolve by sliding the mouse pointer out of the camera preview window to the left/right/bottom (instead of top). Once you slide off your mouse in these directions, the controls disappeared.

  5. Nah I can not change taps it wont any one see my face so i can not slid (the for finger slide on mac)with it letting me record

  6. Thank you. I like the simplicity and clarity of your instructions.

    However…one hour later and I was still trying to figure out how to get the screen recording the video of myself PLUS audio! Turns out that’s separate. Who knew? Anyway, I’m giving up for today because I still don’t know how to playback the screen recording with the audio and I’m exhausted.

    1. When you select to screen record, next to the record button is a little down pointing arrow, click it and it will show you your microphone options. Select internal microphone and you should be good to go.

  7. THANK YOU, Serhat. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. And to think the solution was so simple. Great job. I can’t believe it’s so hard to find the solution on Google. I’m glad I kept looking, Thanks!!

  8. I am doing all of the steps you mentioned, yet, when I finish recording and watch the video, I can’t hear myself talking. Is there a way to fix this?

  9. Hi- Great explanation of the process. I tried it and it worked well except for the audio of my voice is off from the PIP video window I put at the bottom of my screen. Any ideas how to fix that?

    1. I had the same issue which I resolved by selecting “Internal Microphone” from the options hidden in the drop-down menu (click the little arrow beside the Record button.

  10. You are AWESOME!!! I just spend a few days trying to find a suitable program to do this and didn’t even think of trying what you suggested here—but it works perfectly!! I LOVE using quicktime so this is just perfect.

    Thanks again!


  11. Great, thanks! I want to record my Keynote slide presentation and also have my face on screen. Is there a way to do that? When I rehearse or record the slideshow, it automatically goes full screen and takes over even when my quicktime window is supposed to be floating on top.

    1. I’m doing the same… The only solution I could come up with was to export my keynote as a PDF, then open it in Preview. You have to view the PDF in window mode, if you go fullscreen you get the same problem as in Keynote. When I did the screen recording I dragged a box so it only shows the PDF pages, not the rest of my screen, or the preview tools etc. Then I could keep my video floating on top, it’s a pity you can’t make the video smaller though, I think the smallest size is still too big and it gets in the way.

  12. Okay I know how to do that now but how do you record yourself and an iPhone screen with the audio and everything perfectly. I want to record myself and a gameplay

  13. This is perfect for what I was looking for. I’d also recommend Acethinker Free Screen Recorder which I have used for many years. It supports recording system and microphone or both. I always take it to record videos and upload to YouTube so that I can share with friends. It works so well that I haven’t found some defects.
