How to Record Google Hangout Calls with Movavi Screen Recorder

Using Google Hangouts to make video calls is easy and once you open a Hangout session with them you can start a video call with a click of a button. However unlike messages sent via Google Hangouts there is no way to view past video calls, and it isn’t possible to save your video calls natively.

Although Google Hangouts does not have a feature to save its video calls, you can get around that by recording the calls yourself – using Movavi Screen Recorder. It is a software that will let you record video footage of your screen and anything that is on it, so you can record an ongoing Google Hangouts call and then save it afterwards.

 

If you want to learn how to record a Google Hangout, you’ll find it surprisingly simple. Before you begin your call, launch Movavi Screen Recorder and draw a frame over the area where the call will be located using your mouse cursor. When the interface appears after that, make sure the ‘System Audio’ and ‘Microphone’ icons are both highlighted so that both the incoming and outgoing audio from the call will be recorded.

It is possible to adjust other parameters such as the sound levels and frame rate, or to set Movavi Screen Recorder to display and save keyboard and mouse actions. In this case however none of that is necessary, and you can press ‘REC’ and start recording when you’re ready to begin your call.

After the call is done (or if you want to stop the recording at any point) just click ‘Stop’. As soon as you do Movavi Screen Recorder will save your video in MKV format, but it will also open it in a preview window for you to go over it. In that preview window you can also trim out any parts you don’t want, or click ‘Save As’ to save it once again – perhaps in a different format.

As you can see setting up Movavi Screen Recorder to record Google Hangout calls is straightforward and once you try it out you should be able to set it up in minutes the next time round. Because of how easy it is you should have no trouble quickly starting to record a call, even if you haven’t prepared for it in advance.

Assuming you’d like to save any of your calls on Google Hangouts and be able to watch them again or refer to them in the future – this is the best way to do so. Having the option to save your calls will undoubtedly come in handy, which is why it is a good idea to keep Movavi Screen Recorder around – just in case.

How Does One Earn from Blogging?

Having a corporate job or starting an own business may be the first things that pop into one’s mind when to earning money. This may be something very common to many, but earning doesn’t stop there. And one of the underrated ways to earn is through blogging. It is defined as a personal web log wherein the host of the website shares his/her thoughts regarding various matters depending on the topics discussed. Content may range from fashion, lifestyle, food, travel, current news, and a whole lot more. This is also often associated to social media accounts. What makes it different from websites in general is that it is frequently updated and encourages reader engagement. What used to be just a platform for sharings one’s thoughts and interests, now became a medium for marketing and earning money as well. Continue reading

Japanese Venture Capitalist Firm Pivoting to South East Asian Startups

Innovation Weekend Winner

Japanese venture capitalist firm, Sunbridge Global Ventures, is aggressively moving into the South East Asian startup scene, which has exponential growth over the last couple of years.

Like many savvy incubator investors, Sunbridge Global has recognized the scene is to hot to miss out on. What is more, and unlike Japan in many sectors- it remains relatively unsaturated, as this excellent “opportunity map” from TechinAsia shows:

Sunbridge Global is partnered by some of the biggest corporations in Japan, such as NTT, Kao, VEC and in the US with the likes of Amazon. Last week at the Innovation Weekend at Singapore, hosted by Sunbridge Global Ventures. The winner, StudyPact, and the runner-up Haystakt– both taking the new crowdfunding fad to new and unique levels. Both projects qualified for attendance, and a chance to pitch, at a Tokyo-based pitch contest in December of this year. Joining them will be the winners and runners-up from pitch contests in Boston, London and Osaka this year.

Sunbridge Global, along with many other established and up and coming venture capital firms in Japan- are evolving from being traditional VC types, to “incubators” who provide platforms and guidance to startup ventures. With their Jannovation Week in Silicon Valley, they are investing in companies all over the world, such as the US platform AnyRoad. It is surely a sign of the times that the new way of approaching investment in South East Asia, with many collaborations between Japanese and Chinese VCs and technology firms (such as LanguageCloud, which Sunbridge Global also invested in)- will not be overly influenced by the older generations still harboring grudges over events which happened over 75 years ago, such as the nanking massacre. The younger generations are not only tech savvy and forward looking, along with awareness that previous generations didn’t have (e.g: the environment, health, etc)- but they also recognize that socially aware entrepreneurship and staying connected to their fellow men and women around world, without censorship, is the best chance the world has for peace and prosperity for all.
