    Guys,

    Been experimenting options to record video calls and trying FB Messenger (via rooms and ordinary video call). From my experience, I can record video but no audio. Can you share your experiences and how can you do it?

    No audio. Been trying to find out why but no avail. There are some third-party apps that can solve this but I’d rather suck my thumb than be pulled by these unknown software. Anyway, I’m stuck with videos of my grandson without the audio so I imagine what he’s been saying. Sort of.

    Yes this is odd. Sometimes we need to record.such conversations but not sure how. Hope anyone can share their thoughts on this.

    This is not a quick draw solution, but this is a route gets the job done for me - I use Camtasia to record important meetings. - https://bit.ly/2Bt1T4L

    ^Yes, but for a native app not having that capability to record is grossly unreassuring. Messenger should’ve seen that miles away.

    Agree on the native feature. Have also tried via MBP quicktime player (recording) and audio is not allowed. Some kind of a restrictions
