Recording a video has never been so simple! 🎬
It's time for your first video recording! We put together this quick video to help you get started with Loom on day 1.
How to start recording
You can start recording by clicking on the Loom Chrome extension, as shown below.
From here, you can decide what part of your screen you want to capture: Full Screen, Window, or Current Tab. You can choose Camera only if you don't want to record any of your screens.
Choose if you want to record your Screen and Camera by toggling your Camera on or off.
Select a microphone source or turn off your microphone. You will also see an audio indicator capturing audio before you start recording. This helps ensure sound in your recordings.
To remove recording controls or adjust for low light, visit your Setting under the three dots '...' at the top of your recording menu.
Once you're satisfied with your Recording Settings, go ahead and click Start Recording.🎉
💡Note your recording settings will automatically default to those you had set previously.
Chrome Extension Limitations
You cannot record your camera on PDF documents within Chrome.
You cannot record your camera bubble when you are recording a different application other than the Chrome browser.
The pinned tab is a requirement of the new Manifest Version 3 architecture. It’s a requirement from Google. You can safely ignore it - it will go away when you’re done recording.
Within your setting, you can adjust Auto lighting, Flip Camera, Remove the recording countdown, and recording time display (the settings chosen will remain as the default unless changed).
