How to video yourself speaking on a Mac

How to make a video of yourself speaking on a Mac

1) Open Photobooth.  The simplest way to find it on any mac is to go to the spotlight search bar in the top right of your screen and type “photo booth” and click on the Photo Booth listed under Applications.

2) Smile (optional, but helpful step)

3) Select video and record – Video is the third option, just below the bottom left of the video screen; Record is the red button in the middle that I am indicating here:

4) Start speaking (please not “testing, testing, 1, 2, 3…” please)
5) Hit stop

Well done.  You have created a video.  I am sure that you can figure out with a few clicks how to replay your video.  You might even have the desire to change some things and make another video…

I need some help
Does anyone have a Windows machine and would be willing to write a how to for windows?  and for Linux?

  1. Thank you for these instructions, really helpful!! I used to record my webcam with acethinker screen recorder, free and works pretty well. It is a web-based tool that lets you record your screen right from your browser. Share it here as an alternative.

  2. You should plug your Mac in!

    1. Hehe – just saw the battery level! – I often write posts with the power unplugged so that I have to finish and post before I run out of battery – forces me to finish!

  3. […] Other video options on a Mac Use Photobooth. […]
