Hey - great tutorial! Quick question - is it possible to select just a portion of the screen to record?

Depending on the browser, you can select to record the whole screen, just a single application window, or a specific tab. If you need an even more specific portion - e.g. only a section of a specific tab - you could do that in post-processing:

Record the whole tab (or window or screen) and then modify the resulting video so that only the desired portion remains. This "modify the resulting video" is probably quite complicated though. If you find a nice Javascript library for video editing, please let me know!
