I was running into trouble getting LICEcap to work in Catalina (the previous 32-bit app wouldn't run and I had to install the latest release). Running LICEcap wasn't as seamless as below. The solution proposed here worked like a charm!

  • Step 1: Run the below code in a bash shell
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/LICEcap.app
  • Step 2: Allow LICEcap to record screen


  • Step 3: Allow LICEcap to monitor input strokes. I use this for enabling the shortcut to stop LICEcap animation recording
