Could you please recommend a good free software for recoding my screen. I want to record a lecture and upload it to YouTube. I am looking for a software that can allow me to pause while recording. I want to record the screen and my voice with high quality.

    There was a faq with a link at the top of the page... but it is no longer there otherwise I would point you to that... however software, free or not, is also linked to good equipment... – Solar Mike Mar 20 '20 at 5:23

    I don't think you understand... I am recording my voice and use several bits of software all free with the in-built microphone on my macbook pro and get very good results. The point I made about quality hardware still stands. – Solar Mike Mar 20 '20 at 7:37

Try Zoom. I've been doing exactly what you described, sharing my screen with a PDF pulled up and recording me talking through/over it, for my mathematics course.

OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) is a free and open source software application for video recording and streaming. It's commonly used by video game streamers for Twitch, Youtube, etc, but is perfectly good for what you want to do and has tons of control options, including setting hotkeys that allow you to start/pause recording (requires version 24 or newer). OBS is supported on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
