Download and install VideoScribe – Mac

Last updated: 9 November 2017


This instant answer will take you through the process you need to follow to install VideoScribe on a Mac computer.



After signing up for a Sparkol account to use the 7 day free trial, the download of the software will happen automatically. If it’s already downloaded go to Step 3. If you need to download and install the software again start from Step 1.

Step 1. Go to your account, log in with your Sparkol account details and click 'Download' (A).


Step 2. Go to your Downloads folder and double click on the VideoScribe.dmg (B).
If you get an error when double clicking on the .dmg file, you need to Ctrl click on it instead and select ‘Open’ from the menu (C). See the article 'Unidentified developer' message when installing VideoScribe on a Mac for more help.


Step 3. Drag and drop the VideoScribe icon (D) onto the Applications folder (E)

VideoScribe is now installed and you can access it by double clicking on the Applications folder (E) shortcut icon.


Step 4. Your applications will be listed alphabetically and VideoScribe will therefore be listed near the bottom (F).

If you are upgrading VideoScribe from an earlier version, just replace the existing application with the latest version of the app in your Applications folder. This will not affect any of your saved projects.

Make sure that you click and hold on the VideoScribe icon in the dock, when you’ve opened the application, and select ‘Options’ -> ‘Keep in dock’ so it’s easier to find later.

If you have any problems installing, please see Troubleshooting and Minimum system requirements for VideoScribe desktop.
