How to Screen Record iTunes Video

Posted by Nick Orin on Dec 6, 2019 4:49 PM

There are a lot of limitations and restrictions on iTunes movies or TV shows. Even though you have paid for them, you still can't watch them as you want. Not to mention editing or use iTunes movies. In fact, you can only watch them on few authorized devices.

If you want to watch the whole iTunes movie on a bigger screen, I would suggest you use the M4V Video Converter directly. It is designed to convert iTunes movies to common formats so that you can enjoy the playback anytime and anywhere you want. Try TunesKit M4V Converter because it is among the best.

While in some situations, for example, if you only need some parts of the movies for editing videos or making memes, a screen recorder will be a better solution. Screen recording iTunes movies can help you simply extract scenes from the iTunes movies and you don't even need to do the cutting job.

Also, some of you may know that there's no M4V Converter supports macOS 10.13-10.15, which means that you can't convert iTunes movies on the latest Mac system. In this case, screen record video from iTunes is the only way you can convert iTunes movies to MP4.

But how exactly to record video from iTunes? Obviously, we have another tool for you - TunesKit Screen Recorder. TunesKit Screen Recorder can help you record streaming video on your screen, whether it is a purchased or rental one. Now check out how to

How to Record Clips from iTunes Movies

Step 1 Customize Size and Area to Record

Download the iTunes movie you want to record in advance and make sure the movie can well play on your computer. Launch your iTunes or Apple TV, play the movie and adjust the size of the window. If you only need to record a few clips, locate the slide bar to where you want to record.

Step 2 Change Recording Settings

adjust the settings

Click the "cog" icon to open the setting panel. For the basic record options, you can change the output folder and output format as you want. To capture lossless video, choose the format under "HD Video". In the record time options, you can use the time scheduler to set a time to begin and end the recording. This feature is very convenient and you can leave the recorder to finish everything automatically. In the cursor options setting, we suggest you uncheck all the boxes to hide the mouse if you don't want it to show in the recording.

Step 3 Customize Size and Area to Record

In step 3, launch TunesKit Screen Recorder and click the "+" button on the left or the down arrow icon next to it. You can select the recording area using these two buttons. There are many fixed sizes for you to choose or you can customize the area by yourself.

Step 4 Record iTunes Movies

start recording

When all the settings are done, hit on the "REC" button to start recording iTunes movies. Click the "stop" button when you finish the recording. If you set the hotkey to start/stop capture, you can press the hotkey on your keyboard to finish the whole process. After that, you can cut out the unwanted parts with the built-in video cutter.

The Bottom Line

Besides iTunes movies, TunesKit Screen Recorder can also be used to record YouTube videos or any other videos streaming on you computer. It also works as a audio recorder and it is able to capture streaming audio, too. We have both Mac and Win version for you, Just try it!
