How to record movie clips with OBS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I have to make a horror film trailer for class from a existing animated film and I want to record some clips of the movie, but every time I do, the movie doesn't show in the recording, only a black screen. Is there anyway to bypass this?

If you're trying to record a movie from Netflix, keep in mind they thought of people doing this.

If you screen record Netflix (or screenshot it), it will show a black screen (it will still show the subtitles though).

 

You're gonna have to get the movie in a legal way (preferably in an easy to rip way, like a downloadable DRM free file or disc version you can rip (so likely not Blu-ray)) and use the footage that way.

Of course only under the whole "Fair use for education use" part.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Display capture? 

 

And why OBS? Just use Handbrake to cut out the parts you need.

You could just edit the video instead? Try Shotcut.

The film I'm trying to get footage of is Bilal: A New Breed of Hero, which I bought from the Google Play Store so I could watch it on my phone.
