The Best Video Screen Capture For Mac

How many times have you clicked shift + command + 4 to screen capture on Mac and your clipping disappears into the black hole of randomly auto-named files on your computer? With CloudApp, your video screen capture on Mac automatically gets save to your CloudApp toolbar so you can access and share easily. CloudApp also allows you to search your screenshots by color, keywords and pictures - just in case.

Share Videos Regardless Of File Size

Video files are typically large and difficult to share via email or even the most commonly used cloud sharing tools. Use CloudApp's video screen recorder to record your Mac screen and easily generate a direct link to your video to share with your content -- or use our drag and drop feature. No maximum file size. No waiting for uploads or downloads.

Clear And Concise Communication

Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. We say a video is worth ten thousand words. CloudApp’s free screen video capture, for Mac, iOS, and also accessible via a Chrome Extension, is the best way to explain difficult concepts or complicated directions through video. Instantly share video directly from your screen -- both recorded with your webcam or already existing content from a file or the internet.

Record Video to GIFs And Annotate

Capturing your screen and turning video to GIF's still not enough? Enhance your video with GIF annotations. Think text, emojis, arrows, circles - whatever your heart desires -- to help you get your point across as easily and efficiently as possible. Even use annotation to blur out any sensitive information that the free video screen capture may have picked up. But ultimately, don’t forget to have fun with it.
