Screen recording platform that lets you include youtube clips?

Has anyone found a screen recording platform that lets you record youtube videos? I've been making video lectures for my classes (my voice over a powerpoint presentation), but I would love to be able to include links to demos within the powerpoint. I've tried loom, screencast-o-matic, and several others with no luck. The audio always sounds garbled. So I do the video, and email them the power point presentation with the links to the demos. I ask them to pause my video and watch the demo and, then, come back. It's very clunky!

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Sorry, I removed my response because I did not quite understand the question until afterward.  Seems like you have found your answer!

For a windows computer, you can use Windows/Microsoft movie maker to cut, insert, edit audio and video together. There are also screen recording apps. They are OBS Studio, FlashBack Express and FlashBack Pro. I know you can use a video editor to insert or overlay screens and links. 

For Macbook or Apple, iMovie can have links added or you can cut and instert different video files. You can use Quicktime's recorder function to do a screen recording and then splice the recording together with links or other video in iMovie.

Hope that helps.

Hi, Gabe. The problem was that the youtube link within my PowerPoint presentation would get garbled when I used a screen-recording app. (We're doing video lessons for our students, and I wanted all of my resources in one lesson.) But Loom has since let me beta test their newest screenrecording update, so, now when I record my PowerPoints with youtube links integrated, the audio is fine.

Thank you for responding!

Sounds like you may have already come up with an answer to your question, but I wanted to throw in another option...

In PowerPoint, if you go to Insert then there should be a "media" category in the toolbar. Within the media category, there is a "screen recording" option. This feature has allowed me to do exactly what you're envisioning by screen recording only the video on the YouTube webpage and automatically putting it into your presentation. PowerPoint also has features that allow you to trim the video, make it play and loop automatically, and adjust the volume or mute the clip. 

Hope this helps!

Thank you, Erica! That's great to know (Loom occasionally has glitches, so I love having a backup plan).
