Engagement is the key to success on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. And adding facecam to your videos is exactly one of the effective methods. It helps build connection and trust between you and your audiences in a short time. Many videos that got 100k+ views include faces of the YouTubers while they are explaining something, playing games, or watching some stuff that they are reacting to.

Also, it is an easy trick for everyone to learn. All you need to do is just, recording yourself in a screen recorder with facecam while you are playing a game, making a screencast, or using an application on your computer, then a little touch-up on your video in post-editing.

Preparation: Set up Facecam and Microphone

Before recording, make sure you've got the microphone and facecam ready and set up the screen recorder in VideoProc Converter AI. Otherwise, it'll waste much time to record again and again.

1. Connect a face camera to your computer via a USB cable. If you are going to record the screen with a facecam on a laptop, you can use the built-in face camera. Then plug in your headset to the computer.

1. How do I record myself watching a video on my iPhone?

Neither built-in screen recorder nor third-party app on iPhone enables you to record facecam and screen at the same time. To prevent transferring files between your iPhone and your Mac for post-editing, you can record the iPhone screen with VideoProc Converter AI on Mac and edit it afterward.

2. What if I recorded the facecam and screen separately?

Overlay the facecam on your screen recording by using the non-linear video editing software from VideoProc Converter AI. You just need to load the screen recording to its Video Track and facecam recording to Overlay Track and drag to resize and put the facecam on the recording

3. What facecam recorder do YouTubers use?

Game streamers on YouTube prefer OBS Studio because it allows live streaming with external cameras. But it's not the known-at-a-glance kind and weighs much pressure on the computer. While VideoProc Converter AI is more user-friendly for its straightforward interface and stable performances and also got recommended by many YouTubers from gaming and software tutorial channels.
