    It works, but not ideally. I work with extended external screens connected to my laptop. Does anyone know how to record only the screen where I'm holding my presentation on? Now I can see all 3 screens in the mp4 and only 1 of them (where I am doing my presentation on) is moving.

    Question 2 years ago on Introduction

    Nice explanation but it doesn't work ! Unfortunately the file created (LearnerDriver.avi) just doen't increase in size beyond 0 or 1 KB. I have tried repeatedly but no luck. I am using Win Pro 64-bit with VLC 3.0.11. Any ideas?

    This is probably one of the best blogs I've ever read. Direct to the point, without beating around the bush. Ive been using Filmora Wondershare only for On-Screen Recording purposes. But, VLC Media Player can just do the job well! Thanks for Posting

    Wow. This is truly remarkable! I have VLC installed in my computer way before since it is great for playing movies and videos. I don't know it has a screen recording function. Usually, I am using Screen Grabber Pro which has great recording functions. But for the mean time, let me try your suggestion. Thank you!
