How to Add Screen Capture Videos or GIFs to Your Blog Posts

When writing a tutorial for something, sometimes it’s useful to record a screen capture video or GIF to put on your blog. You might want to talk about the things on your screen.

You’ll see multiple examples of me using this trick in this article and I’ll show you how to do it.

Here’s how you do it.

What you’ll need:

Screen Capture Video - Gyazo

Gyazo is an application for Windows and MacOS that allows you take screenshots or screen capture videos of your screen. Once installed, you can right-click a shortcut for two choices:

Capture Image: Similar to a screenshot feature except you get to choose what to capture on your screen by dragging your mouse and creating a box.

Capture GIF: Same as the above except instead of a screenshot, you record a GIF/video of up to 6 seconds long.

When you finished capturing, wait a few seconds and a link will automatically pop up in your browser. You can download the screen capture video in MP4 or GIF format by using the share button at the top.

All that’s left for you to do is add it to your blog post in your desired location and then configure the video details if necessary. There’s some useful features in the video details:

Autoplay: Automatically plays your video when a reader scrolls to it

Loop: Loops your video from start to finish over and over again

That’s it bloggers! Let’s see what screen capture videos you add to your blog posts using this cool new trick.

  2. That’s cool, thanks. Wouldn’t GIFs make blogs slower? Or is it like embedding youtube videos, the GIF will actually load from Gyazo website?
