Do you find that there are some online videos and streams that you like to watch over and over again? It could be an informative video guide that you are trying to learn from, or it may even just be a funny video that brightens your day. Whatever the case, rather than having to be online every time you want to watch that video – why not save it onto your hard drive instead?

  4. Click ‘Stop’ to stop recording when it is done.
