Will Audios Be Recorded with Video?

Yes, most screen recording tools, including the built-in screen recorder on Android and third-party apps like AZ Screen Recorder and Google Play Games, allow you to record audio along with the video. You can choose to record the device's internal audio, your voice via the microphone, or both.

How to Record Screen Only with Internal Audio?

To record your screen with internal audio only, you need to turn off or mute your device's microphone. In the recording settings of your screen recording tool, look for an option to record internal audio or system sounds. Make sure this option is turned on, and the microphone option is turned off or muted.

Why Can't I Screen Record When Watching a Streaming Service?

Some streaming services, like Netflix and Hulu, have copyright protection measures in place that prevent screen recording. When you try to record the screen while watching a show or movie on these services, the recorded video will be blacked out. This is to prevent piracy and illegal distribution of copyrighted content.
