ScreenPal best practices for recording camera over screen

Choose what to share from Chrome browser

Chrome provides three selections for recording your screen: your entire screen, a window, or a specific Chrome tab.   When you select to record both the screen and webcam, you should not select the option "Window" from "Choose what to share" as the camera can't be recorded in an application window.  Choose either "Entire Screen" or "Chrome Tab" to record both camera and screen. 


Full screen recording with camera

When recording your full screen and camera for picture in picture effect and your computer is connected to multiple monitors (for example when you connect your laptop to a monitor)  you need to make sure the webcam is positioned on the screen you are recording to capture the camera with screen.
