How to Record on ChatRoulette

Save

Chatroulette, an Internet social networking site, is very similar to speed dating in that you have just a few seconds to get to know a stranger via webcam before deciding if you want to stay and chat or spin the wheel in hopes of meeting somebody better. However, with the quick-paced people swapping and no way to rewind, recording the screen has become increasingly popular.

Things You'll Need

  • Screen Recording Software
  • Internet
  • Purchase and install the appropriate software. The program used most often is called Quick Screen Recorder (version 1.5). This software conveniently comes with a free trial, and, once it expires, it is relatively affordable for a permanent renewal.

  • Run your chosen screen recorder by selecting it from your dock (Mac) or your start menu (PC). Click record. Your entire display is now being recorded.

  • Visit chatroulette.com. Upon arrival, you will be prompted with a webcam alert. Press "Allow" to activate your webcam. After that, select the "Start" button at the center of the screen.

  • Open your chosen screen recorder and press "Stop Recording" when you've had enough. Every on-screen activity performed between pressing "Record" and pressing "Stop Recording" will now be converted into a standard audio video interleave (AVI) file. These types of files can be played in all video players, such as QuickTime, Windows Media Player and iTunes.

Tips & Warnings

  • Not only is a screen recorder helpful for Chatroulette, but this type of software can also be used for developing videos to demonstrate on-screen computer instructions.
  • It is wise to tell the people who you encounter on Chatroulette and similar websites that they are being recorded.
