Chapter in this post:
DejaVideo is a handy little Mac app from developer Jasper Hartong. The free software records the screen under macOS and immediately outputs the last 60 seconds at the user's request. The rest can also be spent, it just takes longer. To speed up the process, 3 fps and a 50% smaller scaled image is used. However, developers can see where they made a mistake in programs, for example. Or you can recreate the crashed Word document. DejaVideo can also be useful when working on WordPress, writing scripts and using plugins.
The developer promises on the Download websitethat the program under no circumstances interacts with the Internet. He gives a 100% offline guarantee; not even updates for the app are automatically checked. No usage statistics are collected or other user data is stored, passed on and/or processed. The user can decide for himself whether and when to start and end his screen recording. After the output of the last session, the video can then be viewed in Apple Quicktime trim at will. So you could also work for the support if you have recorded your error.

I would install DejaVideo in order to be able to restore texts that have been lost due to any crashes or faulty WordPress sessions. With many “I didn't do anything!” Support problems, it would also help to see what the person concerned did. But mostly the causes are days ago and the request only comes when the error can no longer be traced. That being said, looking at what happened on someone else's desktop for a long time is quite an invasion of privacy. Then better AnyDesk use and try to solve the problem remotely;)
What do you think? For which work and projects would you use DejaVideo? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic!
