how to record video with no sound

Generally speaking, most people know how to record a video. But as people's needs are constantly changing, so are their requirements for recording. For example, how to record a video without audio?

It might occur to you to disable the sound at the start of the recording. This is indeed a solution, but it is a clumsy and obviously flawed one. When you are recording a video on your computer, you may remember to disable the computer speaker. But when you use your Android phone or iPhone to record video, you will find that the phone's built-in recording function will record the sound inside the video as well, and it only supports disabling the microphone voice.

So, back to the topic, how to record a video without sound? If you have the same question, then you've come to the right place. We'll show you the ways to record video with no sound. Read on for more information.

Part 1. How to Record Video with No Sound on Windows & Mac

Part 2. How to Record a Video without Sound Online

This section is for those who just want to record videos online without sound. After many trials, we have found a great free online screen recorder, Screen Capture, to be a free and trustworthy online video recording tool. This online tool allows you to record videos without audio, including the option to disable system sound and microphone separately.

The downside is that it records videos with a watermark that cannot be removed, the video quality is not as good as that of TunesKit Screen Recorder, and it only exports in MP4 format. But the good thing is that it doesn't limit the length of recording. So if you're not serious about video quality, you can use it to record a video without sound. You can refer to the following steps.

How to Capture a Video without Sound

Step 1: Get prepared for the target video. Open a browser and visit Screen Capture. First, turn off the Microphone and Sound option and tap Start Recording.

Part 3. How to Record Video without Sound on iPhone/Android Phone

As mentioned above, the recording function on both Android phones and iPhones can be done without recording the sound of the microphone. And it can capture the video without audio as long as you turn down the volume of the video.

However, if you also tap the screen during the recording and accidentally turn up the volume, the sound will be recorded in full. To record video without sound on an Android or iPhone, you need a third-party app. After testing, we found a video recording app that is compatible with both Android and iOS, called DU Screen Recorder.

DU Screen Recorder can smoothly record anything you want on your phone, including games, lessons, videos, and more. What makes it possible to record videos without sound is that it also supports individual settings to disable sound or not.

So all you need to do is turn off the sound option in the settings before you start recording, and it will successfully capture the video without sound. The method of use is not entirely the same, as systems are different. We will list a separate guide on how to use the app to record silent video on Android phones and iPhones.

3.1 How to Record Video without Sound on Android Phone

Step 1: Open Google Play and install DU Screen Recorder on your phone. After the installation, it will display a small record icon on your screen.

Step 2: Before you start recording, tap the small icon and go to Settings. Find the Audio source option in Settings, and select No audio.

Step 1: Go to Apple Store and install DU Screen Recorder on your iPhone. Then, go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls. Disable the Screen Recording first and add it again to the list.
