Introduction

In order to screen record and play music, you will need two things: a screen recording software and a music player. Once you have acquired both of these, you can begin the process of recording and playing your music.

What You’ll Need

To screen record and play music on your device, you’ll need:
– A computer with an internet connection
– A microphone (optional)
– A music player (optional)

Here’s how to do it:

1. Go to the website that you want to record.
2. Press the “record” button on your screen recorder.
3. Start playing the music that you want to record.
4. Press the “stop” button on your screen recorder when you’re finished recording.
5. Your recording will be saved as a video file on your computer.

Setting Up Your Screen Recorder

Before you start recording, you need to set up your audio options.

To do this, open the “Screen Recorder” settings by clicking the 3 dots in the upper right corner of the app.
From here, make sure the “Audio source” is set to “System sound.”
If you want to record audio from your microphone as well, check the “Record microphone” box.

Recording Your Screen

There are a number of reasons you might want to record your screen: You could be making a Let’s Play video for YouTube, recording a software bug to show a support technician, or preparing a tutorial for work or school. No matter the reason, Windows 10 has built-in tools that make recording your screen easy using the Xbox Game bar. Even better: Once you’re done recording, you can use the newly added Timeline feature in the Fall Creators Update to edit your video before sharing it with others.

Here’s how to record your screen in Windows 10 using the Xbox Game bar.

1. Open the Xbox Game Bar by pressing Windows Key+G. You may be prompted to allow the app to access your camera and microphone; select Yes if prompted.

2. Once open, you should see a toolbar appear at the top of your screen with various options and icons. At the far right, you’ll see an icon that looks like a circle with a plus sign in it; this is the Screen Capture button. Click it to begin capturing your screen.

3. By default, the Game bar will only record the active window on your screen; however, you can expand this by clicking on the icon that looks like two overlapping rectangles in the middle of the toolbar (it’s right next to where it says “Capturing for How-To Geek”). This will bring up a menu with various capture options; choose “Captures” from here and then select “Record entire screen” from the pop-out menu that appears next.

4. You can also use this menu to change where your videos are saved by default (we recommend selecting “This PC” from the drop-down menu so you can easily find them later), as well as decide whether or not you want audio recorded along with your video footage. When you’re ready, click “Start recording” at the bottom of this pop-out menu and then begin whatever it is you wanted to record!

5. To stop recording, simply press Windows Key+Alt+R on your keyboard (or click on Stop recording if you still have the Game bar open). Your video will automatically be saved in MP4 format to whichever folder you specified earlier; from here, you can watch it back, share it with others, or edit it using Timeline before saving it again in whichever format you prefer

Playing Music While Recording

There are times when you may want to record a video of your desktop or an app, but you may also want to include music playing in the background. Here’s how you can do that on a Mac.

To record your desktop with audio on a Mac, you’ll need to use QuickTime Player. Launch QuickTime Player from your Applications folder, then click File > New Screen Recording in the menu bar.

A new window will pop up with recording options. Click the downward-facing arrow next to the record button and make sure that Internal Microphone is selected from the drop-down menu. Then, click the record button and start playing your music. To stop recording, just click the stop button in the menu bar.

Editing Your Screen Recording

Now that you’ve recorded your screen and audio, it’s time to edit your video. To do this, open the recording in QuickTime Player and use the built-in editing tools.

1. To trim your recording, click on “Edit” in the top menu bar and then select “Trim…” Alternatively, you can press Command + T on your keyboard.

2. A new window will open showing your entire recording. To trim the beginning or end of your video, simply drag the yellow handles to where you want them. You can also Trim by clicking on the “Trim from Start/End” buttons or by entering specific times in the fields next to them.

3. When you’re finished trimming, click on “Trim” in the bottom right corner of the window to save your changes.

4. If you want to add music to your video, click on “Edit” in the top menu bar and then select “Add Music…” Alternatively, you can press Command + Shift + M on your keyboard.

5. A new window will open where you can choose a song from your iTunes Library or any other music file on your computer. Once you’ve selected a song, click on “Open” in the bottom right corner of the window to add it to your video.

6. The song will be added to your video and will start playing automatically from the beginning. To change when the song starts playing, simply drag it to the desired location on the timeline at the bottom of the window. You can also adjust its volume by dragging the blue line next to it up or down

Sharing Your Screen Recording

You’ve made a amazing screen recording of you and your friends playing music together, and now you want to share it with the world. How can you do that?

There are a few ways that you can share your screen recording of you and your friends playing music. You can post it on social media, like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. You can also upload it to YouTube or another video sharing website. Or, you can email it to your friends or family.

Once you’ve decided how you want to share your screen recording, there are a few things you need to do to make sure it plays correctly. First, check the file size and make sure it’s not too big. If it is, try compressing the file or cutting out some of the footage. Second, test the file by playing it back on your computer before you share it with anyone else. This will ensure that there are no problems with the playback. And finally, be sure to include instructions on how to play the file (for example, what software or hardware is needed) so that your audience can enjoy your screen recording without any issues.
