  2. Go to the right tab "Capture device";
  3. Select your webcam and the desired audio source;
  4. Choose "Play" at the bottom, instead of "Convert / Save";
  5. All you have to do is right-click on the image being broadcast and click on Record to start the recording session, and press again to cut.
