Over the last couple of years the number of websites serving up video content has steadily increased. That includes big platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo as well as smaller individual websites that either embed or self-host videos as a form of content too.
As a rule of thumb, most of the video content on websites is in the form of online streaming videos. The reason for this is mostly because it is a convenient and effective way of serving up videos, as the video can start to play immediately and download as it goes along. However as much as online streaming videos are a great way to provide videos, they do come with one drawback: If you want to watch them later you need to be online and re-stream the video.
Needless to say this can be less than ideal and in some situations may not even be possible. At very least it will eat into your available data and bandwidth, which can be an issue especially for mobile internet users. Fortunately there is a way to get around this problem, and all you need is to know how to record the videos you want to watch later from websites using Movavi Screen Capture for Mac.
