ScreenPal best practices for recording camera over screen

Choose what to share from your Google Chrome browser

Chrome provides three choices for recording your screen: Entire Screen, Window, or Chrome Tab.  When you choose to record both the screen and webcam, you should not select Window, as the camera cannot be recorded in an application window.  Instead, select either Entire Screen or Chrome Tab to record both your camera and screen. 

Full screen recording with camera

If your computer is connected to multiple monitors when recording your full screen and camera for a picture in picture effect (for example, when you connect your laptop to a monitor), be sure that the webcam is positioned on the screen you are recording to best capture you on camera with the screen.
