I'm going to watch a ball game on Safari today. Is there any way to record it? I looked at Quicktime 10 and Quicktime 7, but neither seemed to have recording capability. Is there a Mac app that does have that capability?

Snapz Pro X will record video, but the file size and saving time will be massive for a whole game – almost real time, in my experience.

It's a moving screen grab. You drag a window over the application in which you are watching the game. Anything that goes through that window is also recorded, like a cursor. So, you can't really be doing anything else while watching the game.

Thank you. After reading your observations, I decided to bag it. Thanks. I had hoped that QuickTime would record a game, but I didn't see how that could be done.
