How can I prevent screen recording and screenshot?

A constant presence throughout the history of the content industry has been the struggle against unlawful material leakage. In the world of movie content piracy, the so-called cam version is one of the most conventional tactics used.

Anyone may now illegally record and leak the latest blockbusters from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need to discreetly film in the cinema.

Although it is not unlawful to use the application in and of itself, the recording capability can be abused to duplicate content in an unauthorized fashion.

However, there are several situations in which using multi-DRM alone will not be sufficient to prevent the recording from occurring. This is about web browsers that use Widevine DRM at the software level, such as Chrome and Firefox, among others.

Because the Chrome browser, in particular, has a large proportion of the PC environment, the fact that Widevine DRM content played on it can be simply reproduced with a screen recording program can be a significant problem.

As an alternative to implementing an anti-capture solution, service providers might choose to discontinue support for browsers (such as Chrome, Firefox, and others) that are known to be vulnerable to screen capture.

Also, it is possible to reduce the amount of pain experienced by users by limiting the resolution of the material supplied to their browsers.

If you limit the resolution of the content served to browsers such as Chrome to 720p or 576p, you can reduce the amount of damage caused by leaked content.

A visible watermarking technique overlays visible text on top of the video that is now being played on the screen. When the ID of the service user or the IP address of the client device is displayed on a screen, it is possible to identify and trace down the user from the content leaked.

How can I screen record in Windows 11?

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million words, and vice versa. Screen recording in Windows is a useful tool for demonstrating how to execute a task in a critical application or for demonstrating your gaming skills to friends and family.

Fortunately, screen recording is built right into Windows 11 as part of the Xbox Game Bar function, and utilizing it is quite simple, even if you want to capture your activities in a non-gaming program.

However, there are some restrictions to Game Bar, so if you’re doing something more sophisticated than simply capturing one application at a time, you may want to consider using a third-party app for screen recording rather than Game Bar.

With a number of features meant to improve your gaming experience, the Xbox Game Bar is included in both Windows 11 and Windows 10. These capabilities include easy access to Xbox chat as well as a glimpse into your CPU and GPU activity.

Nevertheless, its most helpful feature – regardless of whether you are a gamer or not – is the ability to screen record MP4 videos. In order to screen record from within an application, the feature must be active at the moment of recording.

Besides Xbox Game Bar, you could use another third-party app such as ABBYY ScreenShot Reader, about which you can learn more by checking out our ABBYY FineReader article.

It will not record the Windows desktop or the File Explorer while inactive. Consequently, if you want to demonstrate an activity that requires the use of different programs, like programming in a code editor and then viewing it in a browser, you would need to collect a number of video clips.

And, if you want to demonstrate anything in the Windows 11 or 10 user interface, such as how to use the Start menu or how to fix a certain error, you won’t be able to do so with Xbox Game Bar alone.
