I struggled with recording the cursor with OBS for quite some time now. It did not bother me as much until I actually need the cursor for one of the recordings at JSecademy. I decided to figure out how to actually go about setting up OBS to record the Cursor.
The two main topics that you need to know about are the following.
- Display Capture: Record the entire monitor with cursor included
- Window Capture: Record the window without the cursor
Once you understand those two parts you will be able to record the cursor.
