How To Record Roblox on a Mac
Roblox is a cool online gaming platform where users get to design their own games and interact with other players. Since it allows for unique gameplay, you should have many interesting moments to record for posterity.
It’s quite easy to capture your gameplay regardless of the platform you are using, be it Mac, Windows, iOS, or Android. In this article, we’ll focus on recording Roblox on a Mac, but we’ve included a section on how to do it on iOS as well.
Recording Roblox on a Mac
There are three different ways to record Roblox gameplay on a Mac. You can use QuickTime player, the built-in Roblox recorder, or a third-party app. The following sections will provide you with a step-by-step guide for each method.
Using the QuickTime player is probably the easiest way to capture your gameplay. However, this option means you need to manually upload the recording to YouTube or your preferred video-sharing platform.
Launch the player (press CMD + Space, type Q, and hit enter). Go to the File menu and select New Screen Recording.
To start, click the Record button, and then click the Stop button once you’re done. To save the clip, go back to the File menu, select Save, and choose your destination.
The Roblox recorder is somewhat superior to the QuickTime player, as it doesn’t require you to exit the game. Here’s how to utilize the recording option:
Once inside the game, click Menu (the “hamburger” icon) in the upper left section of the screen.
Choose the Record tab and select one of the video settings. The Save to Disk option saves the clip locally on your computer and Upload to YouTube automatically adds the recording to your channel.
Note: At the time of this writing, the Upload to YouTube option was not working. But Roblox is aware of the problem and this feature should work in the future.
Hit the Record Video button to start, and click on the Record icon to stop (upper left section of the screen) once you are happy with the recording.
The My Videos window will pop up when you finish with the recording. Click on the link inside the window to preview your clip.
FoneLab Screen Recorder
If you want more screen recording options, FoneLab is sure to meet your needs. This software works on both Mac and Windows PC devices, and it allows you to customize the recording to your preferences.
Install the FoneLab app on your Mac and launch it prior to entering the Roblox gameplay. To select a custom recording area, click on the Video Recorder button. Then you can choose your audio recording preferences (microphone voice and system audio).
Hit the Record icon to start and the Stop icon to finish recording. The recording menu also allows you to draw arrows, make annotations, and it can follow your cursor to capture a specific area.
Once you are done, click Save, select the desired destination and format, and you are good to go.
Note: The FoneLab screen recorder is a paid app, and it’s especially suitable for gaming YouTubers. Of course, there are also many freemium options you can look into.
Recording Roblox on iOS
Those who prefer to play Roblox on their iOS devices (iPhone/iPad) have a very convenient way to record the gameplay – the Screen Recording function. This works on iOS 11 and later, and you need to make sure the feature is added to your Control Center. You can do so by following this path:
Settings> Control Center> Customize Controls
Tap on the small “plus” icon in front of Screen Recording, and it will be automatically added to the Control Center.
Here is how to start recording on your iOS device:
Inside the Control Center, you have two options to start screen recording. A simple tap on the button initiates a pre-recording countdown, so you have some time to launch the game.
You can also hold the button to reveal more options and turn on your mic to record game commentaries and explanations. Hit Start Recording when you are ready.
Go back to the Control Center and tap the Record button again to stop. The video is saved to your Camera Roll by default, and you can use the built-in editing tool to trim your clip.
Let the Games Begin
As you can see, recording Roblox on a Mac is a no-brainer and you don’t really need any third-party software to do it. What’s more, the Apple ecosystem gives you a chance to easily transfer your Roblox videos from a Mac to an iPhone/iPad and vice versa.
