Step 3. Then move down to modify the recording settings. You can choose your preferred recording format, quality, and frame rate, or just leave them as defaults. Then choose to turn the GPU acceleration on or off. Check the boxes to select the audio source (system sound and microphone) you want to record. Don’t forget to specify an output path for the recorded videos.

Once you finish the recording, a window will pop up to show you the recorded file. You can then quit the screen recorder module and enter the “Converter” module for editing or playing.
If you’re a Mac user and want to record Hulu content for offline watching on your Mac, you can just rely on a Mac built-in application - QuickTime Player. It is a multi-functional video player and has a screen recording feature that can help you record screen activities without downloading a third-party screen recorder. QuickTime Player allows you to capture any part of the screen, audio, and even take screenshots.
