Follow the steps below to save your recording/recorded video to Local (a local disk of your computer) from the AwesomeScreenshot extension.
- Select Local from the drop-down menu which is above Start Recording of the extension to record.
- After the recording is done, please click Download to save it to your Downloads folder, and then you can move it to a specific folder.
If you select to save your recording/recorded video to Local, the recording is temporarily saved in My Local Recordings (a temporary folder in your browser) and it is not saved on our server, so it is prone to be lost due to the browser update, cleanup, unexpected system error, or unexpected browser error. Therefore, we cannot retrieve videos recorded under the Local mode.
To temporarily access your local recordings, please click My Local Recordings by hovering your cursor to the icon highlighted below.
You can upload a local recording/video to AwesomeScreenshot.com Cloud to generate a shareable link or edit it after recording. Simply click on Upload next to the video. Alternatively, you can select the video by clicking on its thumbnail in My Local Recordings, and then click on Upload next to the video to upload it.
