Best Browser Extension Video Screen Recorders
Need to record a quick video that shows your desktop or within an app? One of the quickest ways to do that is with a browser extension. Google Chrome Extensions are small software programs that customize the browsing experience. These specialized Chrome extensions allow you to access screen recording from a small icon in the Chrome browser toolbar, rather than opening a separate app to do that. Here are the 3 best extensions I’ve used for recording video of my device screens.
Screencastify is a free Chrome extension that is available right in your browser that makes it easy to record, edit, and share videos of your computer screen. Then the recordings can easily be shared via email, embedding code, YouTube, Google Classroom, and more. Screencastify lets you choose where you store your videos, either in your Google Drive account or locally on your own device.
Why waste time trying to explain something when you can just record it and share it online? Loom is an easy and free screen recorder for Mac, Windows, and Chromebooks. Record your camera and screen with audio directly from your Chrome browser and share the video with your team, friends, and family.
Use the Nimbus Chrome browser extension to capture full web page or any part of the page. Once you’ve captured the video, you can edit and annotate the screenshots. You can also convert video to gif and mp4, then quickly upload and share screenshots and screencasts.
