Customize video settings

Screencastify makes it easy to customize your video recoding settings. By default, Screencastify records at the maximum possible resolution based on your device's screen, and maximum possible frame rate based on your device's available processing power. 

However, you can limit both resolution and frame rate if you'd like to reduce your video's file size.

TIP

Screen recording inherently requires significant processing power. If your frame rate is very low or your video appears choppy, try closing out extra browser tabs and applications. This will free up some memory for screen recording.

Customize video settings for a tab recording

If you recording your browser tab, you can customize maximum frame rate, resolution, and resize your tab to popular video dimensions.

  2. Select "TAB" recording option
  3. Click themenu-iconicon to open up the advanced video options
  4. Set your maximum frame rate or resolution
