Record your computer's screen with just one click!

What is Screen Recorder?
"Screen Recorder" is a Firefox add-on that lets you record videos straight from your computer's screen. The recording process is initiated by a single click from the toolbar button. Users have the flexibility to select their video source, be it their screen, a window, or a tab. The video is automatically downloaded to your computer in a default WebM format. For different video format, external software may be required. Please note, the current version doesn't support audio recording.

Summary

Screen Recorder addon helps you record video from the computer's screen.

To work with this addon, please click on the toolbar button. Once the recorder interface appears, please adjust desired options, and then click the - Start - button. The video source could be your screen, window, or tab. The audio source can be the system's audio, microphone, mixed, or no audio at all. When you click the start button, a popup will appear within the interface. This popup window allows you to select the desired screen, tab, or window. To start recording please click on the - Share - button. When you are done recording the screen, please press the toolbar button (or the stop button on the app interface) to stop the recording process. The recorded video will be download to your computer automatically (on the default download location).

By default, recorded media is in - webm - format. To get more information about webm video format, please visit this Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebM). If you want to change this format to a different one, please use a different software.

Note: currently in Firefox, recording the audio is not supported. "navigator.mediaDevices.getDisplayMedia" API, does not have audio capabilities. In the future, if this capability is added to the API, it will be included in the addon automatically.

Works great! Simple, but better than any alternatives that I've used. The only problem I had (initially) was finding the recording that had been made, but turns out it was saved automatically to the downloads folder. Nice work, thank you Bernard!
