Screen recording can help us keep movies from streaming platforms, save gameplay highlights, grab important online classes and meetings, and more for better playback. But sometimes, you may only want to record the screen without any audio or external sound on your devices to a video and add your needed over-voice in post-processing. However, most devices integrate with default video & audio recorders that don't support freely selecting the audio source, so you have to capture your screen and sound simultaneously. If you want to record a video without sound on different devices, read on to see the recommended third-party recording software or adjust the settings of a built-in recorder properly.
