I am "attending" an all day webcast next week, but I know I will have to duck out for an hour or so at one stage to deal with another issue.

Previous webcasts I've attended offer an on-demand service so you can watch when it suits, but this particular one doesn't.

Can anyone direct me to some software that would allow me to record the bit of the webcast I'm going to miss - this is very much just for time shifting, I'm not going to post the recording online or anything (even assuming anyone wanted to watch; the subject matter is pretty dry).

Google search produces a fair few results, but I'm not entirely sure of some of their bona fides.

The webcast seems to be using the webcasts.com platform if it helps.

You could use something like OBS to record your screen and computer audio to a video file.  It's free but can be a bit finicky to setup. I would also test it if you can, as sometimes capturing video in a browser doesn't work.

If you a desktop Nvidia GPU you could also try Nvidia Shadowplay.

There are other screen recording options however the free versions tend to have recording time limits or add watermarks.

You should really state what OS you are on. For OS-X there is ScreenFlow which is a really good application for recording your screen and computer audio.

I use it a lot to create screencasts for functionality I build for clients (using my headset microphone). But you can record anything going on your screen with it.

Excellent point. My main notebook is Windows 10, but there are certainly MacBooks floating around at home that I can use for this if it's easiest. Yosemite I think.

(As an aside, what's the deal with the OS covergance on the number 10? Win10, OSX, BB10).

For windows you could use FSCapture.  Works well, but I'd try it beforehand to make sure it captures the sound from the right place..

I've been experimenting with OBS tonight. Seems to work well enough, though @littlehead was dead right about it being fiddly to set up. Webinar isn't until tomorrow and I'm glad I left myself plenty of time to work through the niggles. I can see how if I was doing this (or something else) all the time you'd go for a more polished option.
