Low PC performance may prevent recording. Hardware such as the CPU, memory, and graphics card of the PC has a significant impact on recording. Low PC performance may cause recording to stop in the middle, recorded video cannot be played back, or audio and video may be out of sync.

If your PC does not meet the hardware requirements for recording screen with Wondershare DemoCreator, try the following solution.
- Upgrade your PC's hardware; replacing hardware such as the CPU, memory, or graphics card can improve your PC's performance. However, replacing hardware requires specialized knowledge, skills, and expense. In addition, hardware replacement can be difficult for notebook computers.
- Optimize your computer's software; keeping your computer's software, including the operating system, drivers, and applications, up-to-date can improve performance. Removing unnecessary software and files and closing other applications while recording can lighten the computer and reduce load.
Screen recording may be restricted under certain conditions. Most paid video distribution services have copy protection and recording circumvention features. Examples include U-NEXT, Hulu, dTV, Paravi, FOD, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and dAnime Store.
Content distributed on these sites is DRM-protected and usually cannot be recorded. Many screen recording software, including Wondershare DemoCreator, do not support these protected contents.
In such cases, we recommend using video download software. Let's see in the next section what kind of video download software is best.

- The size of recorded videos will increase. Recorded videos will increase in size, depending on the quality and duration of the recording. Therefore, you need to have enough free space on your computer storage to store the recorded video.
- The quality of recorded video will be degraded. Recorded video quality may be degraded by the recording settings and editing process.
