Best & Free Online Screen Recorder

Last updated on November 22, 2018 by

With a free screen recorder, we don’t need to purchase for the software account to use the recording functions, and with an online screen recorder, we don’t need to download the desktop program and go through the installation as well as the registration process. Now, if we have a free online screen recorder, wouldn’t it be perfect for us to record screen anytime and anywhere?

Screencast-O-Matic is an easy-to-use and web based screen recorder.

However, it’s still a multi-functional screen recorder and is available on Chromebook, Mac and Windows.

  1. Go to the website of Screencast-O-Matic.
  2. Click on “Launch Free Recorder”. For first-time users, please download the launcher, and then, the recorder will be automatcially opened once the installation is finished.
