How to Record Periscope on Mac

If you have a Mac where you want to record Periscope, you can either connect your iPhone where the Periscope app is installed to your computer and record from it, or you can record from the web version of Periscope.

Either way, you will be using the free QuickTime Player app on your Mac to record the content. This built-in app on your Mac supports recording your iPhone's screen and your Mac's screen. Since this app is from Apple, it tightly integrates with macOS and provides you with a seamless experience to perform all your recordings.

Just keep in mind that your recorded files might be a bit larger because QuickTime focuses more on the quality of the content and less on optimizing the content. Other than that, you should have no issues, and your recordings will be ready in no time.

The following shows how you can go about recording Periscope on your Mac by connecting your iPhone to the Mac:

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac using a USB cable and launch the "QuickTime" app on your Mac.

Open QuickTime

Step 2. When QuickTime opens, click the option that says "File" in the menu bar and select "New Movie Recording". Although it says movie recording, it will help you record Periscope from your iPhone.
