Where to find screenshots
By default, screenshots save to your desktop with the name ”Screen Shot [date] at [time].png.”
In macOS Mojave or later, you can change the default location of saved screenshots from the Options menu in the Screenshot app. You can also drag the thumbnail to a folder or document.
I use LaunchBar to start the ScreenCapture app (it used to be called Grab) so you can search for that as well. Spotlight or any other launcher should work.
Take the screen shot locally on the Mac is my advice and then save it to a cloud sync folder or otherwise get it to your remote is my advice. You get the standard keys and best resolution / drop shadow, ...
On occasion, I too have graphic image data from a screen shot on the clipboard and have used a very stripped down version of the example AppleScript code shown further below to write it to a disk file. However, I've rewritten it so all you have to do is set the value for two variables, read the comments in the code, then save the script using Script Editor. ...
I created an automator workflow to solve this problem
Bottom line: the solution allows you to save an image from the clipboard anywhere with one keystroke (you have to show it where to go in the save dialogue, obviously)
The workflow opens preview, creates a new file from the clipboard, and saves the file (opening the save as dialogue). You can then put ...
Edit/Re-Write # 2:
My earlier answers were wrong, and while troubleshooting, new (and likely better) answers have been posted. Nevertheless, I've finally got a correct answer, so I'm going to post it. I've tested it with screenshots on my 10.15.4 system, and it worked reliably in my (limited) testing. As there were already answers to this question that ...
Use Background Music.
To install, either:
brew cask install background-music
Or go to https://github.com/kyleneideck/BackgroundMusic and install the .pkg file.
Now, in Quicktime Screen Recording, you will see an option for Microphone for "Background Music". Select "Background Music". Then when you do the screen recording, it will record the System Audio.
To me this looks like ffmpeg ignores the arguments in the command line. What is the problem?
The flags capture_cursor and capture_mouse_clicks are boolean and defaulted to "0"; set them to "1" and put them before the first input.
The format that you want to use for ffmpeg goes like this:
% ffmpeg [input1 flags] -i input1 \
[input2 flags] -i input2 \
CMD + SHIFT + 5 to pop the config bar.
Click Options and Make sure you have selected Save to Desktop or whatever you want to do every time you press CMD + SHIFT + 3
Now, some short explanation:
For my scenario, I use Quicktime a lot to record screen. Since macOS Catalina, Quicktime toolbar changed and somehow that same toolbar controls you screen-...
Note: This answer doesn’t use libav but this question comes up first when searching for “mac screen record command line” in Google.
As of macOS Catalina, you can now record screen from your command line using the screencapture tool with -v flag.
See the help page (screencapture --help) for a description of all options. The options listed in the man page ...
