    You could use an easy/quick app like "cinch" to automatically stretch out the browser to a full screen view and be able to keep the PIP on "float on top" mode.

    does this cancel out external noise when doing a screen and audio recording on quicktime? I have dogs and they bark and I can hear them on the finished video sometimes! Thanks

    So I’m trying to make reaction videos on YouTube, the problem is on the screen recording, when I record a video and play it back after I’m done recording, the video I recorded is laggy, even through while I was doing the reaction, my video plays fine. My question is, is there a way I can prevent the lag from happening?
