How to Set Video and Audio Settings

Once CaptureSpace Lite is launched, the Desktop Recorder toolbox will appear in the corner of the screen

Click the "Settings" tab

Choose settings according to your needs

File Storage

Assign a place to store files locally (on your computer) before they're uploaded to your MediaSpace account.  You can use the default location or choose an alternate location.

Webcam Sources

Click the "Select a Webcam" menu to choose a camera source. This can be your laptop's built-in webcam or a camera you've attached.

Note: The small preview of the video may be distorted. Don't worry about this, video will be captured without distortion.

Microphone Sources

Click the "Select a Microphone" menu to choose an audio source. This can be your laptop's microphone or a mic you've attached.

Camera Recording Quality

Select the recording quality you wish to capture from your camera:

For the webcam:

  • 480P is "regular definition", as in the traditional TV format, with a 4:3 aspect ratio
  • 720P is "high definition" or HD, with a 16:9 aspect ratio -- we recommend this setting

Note: P stands for "progressive-scan" meaning: the number of horizontal scan-lines that comprise the image

For more camera resolution options, click "More>" and choose from the menu

 

Screen Capture Recording Quality

Select the recording quality you wish to capture from your screen:

For screen capture, both are 16:9 aspect ratio:

  • HD 720P is "high definition" or HD, with a 16:9 aspect ratio
  • HD 1080P is "full high definition" or FHD, with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a slightly clearer image -- we recommend this setting

Click "SAVE" at the bottom right of the window to save your settings
