The picture quality is terrible when recording a music video probably because of the highest frame rate being only 20. that is too slow. Most people don't realize the need for a splitter and stereo wire into the mic.(for more on how to use the splitter look at my suggestion at the top) I compared recording from MTV with this software and Ashampoo Snap 3, RipTiger Ultimate and Aiseesoft Streaming Video Recorder (ASVR). The best recording and video was (ASVR) with Snap 3 coming in second (only problem with Snap 3 was that you needing to keep your levels low or you go to much distortion)

Thanks Martin. Now my only other problem is that I can't get the fixup region to stay in place unless I put the cursor in the middle of the screen. I'll try it again after I restart my computer.

#30 thanks Mike. it's a JVC Digital Video Camera, GR-DA30U, which takes mini DV tapes. as far as i can understand, being an older model, screen capture is the only way to get it on my comp, using the EasyCap USB cable i bought.

Have tried this quite a few times now and works perfectly every time, a great program with many facilities. I certainly have not encountered any bugs to date. Thanks to GAOTD and the publishers.
The quality is excellent and in exe 's can produce quite small files.

I was hoping to be able to record myself speaking on an online video chat site like LiveVideo or Stickam since their recording features have been buggy or entirely not working at all. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the audio to work whether I select mic or computer MCI. Recording sound from the system would be preferable when I have a guest on the screen so that random noises from my house don't affect the sound of the person I'm interviewing.

I'm using Windows 7 64 bit on an Acer Aspire AX1800-U9002. It's a 2.5Ghz quad core with 4GB memory and a 750GB drive. I'm currently using the built-in sound and video cards.

I'm wondering if some who are not getting sound are using Vista or Win 7, where some recording is disabled by default?

Right click the volume icon in the tray, click Recording Devices, and if there is no Stereo Mix available, right click the window, then click on Show Disabled Devices. Stereo Mix should now be available. Right click it and click Set As Default Device, unless you want to use a mic instead, in which case set mic to default. You should now get sound.

#20: "Some computers do not allow you to record audio from your sound card... However, the sound eventually gets out of synch with longer videos."

FWIW, Aplus Screen Recorder is more suited for recording things like tutorials & demonstrations where you'd use a mic to record your dialog or narration -- I wouldn't think recording speaker out would be necessary unless you were recording playing video or a game or something, which this app frankly is ill-suited for with it's 20 fps maximum.

That said, there are several fixes available on-line to restore full audio recording functions -- Google/Bing including model of PC/laptop -- as well as 3rd party audio drivers. I've also read of people using external sound card hardware -- cheap USB devices start at just a few dollars -- but I don't have any experience with them to say how well it works.

As far as audio sync goes, that's a function of your recording software, & when specialized hardware's involved like TV tuners, may be effected by poor driver design as well. The audio (&/or video) source is for the most part irrelevant. It can happen because video uses one clock, audio uses another. Capture/recording software should account for that, speeding up or slowing down one or both streams as needed, writing both streams to disk synced the same way they arrive at whatever signal inputs. A PC/laptop that can't keep up, whether because it's got too much going on or lacks the horsepower, can make a software problem worse, just like poor drivers can slow parts of the process down. If your recording does drift out of sync, record extra duration, time compress the audio [i.e. shorten duration without altering pitch], then trim [i.e. cut off the extra bit you recorded at the end] -- but generally you shouldn't have to.

* * *

#25: "i have a digital camcorder that takes the mini tapes, and would like to get the stuff on tape onto my comp to burn to DVD,would this be good for that?"

You don't give your model # or info on what sort of tapes etc. so all I can suggest is Google/Bing &/or reading the docs for your camera. Screen capture is likely the worst possible way to get your camera's video on hdd.

Installed and works fine on Vista Home Premium.

As a technologies teacher, I've been looking for something like this for a long time that works well. All other comments and objections above aside, it does exactly what I need - simple to use, good capture quality, and will be an asset to me as a teacher.

Very similar to the free Camstudio, Aplus Screen Recorder is a somewhat buggy app that none-the-less does work. Rather than come with it's own codec, it uses [hopefully] your choice of installed VFW [Video For Windows] codecs, defaulting to the ancient Microsoft Video 1. In tests I had some problems getting Aplus Screen Recorder to actually use the codec I chose -- it kept reverting to an .exe file using *I think* that poor MS codec -- but when it did work it worked fairly well, with the main limitation of having a max 20 fps possible... set it any higher & it reverts to 20 fps after giving you an error message. It also has a somewhat un-intuitive annotation feature -- IMHO you'd be well off to download Camstudio for it's capture codec & help file, which explains how to use annotations & should apply well enough that you'll understand the basics.

RE: errors setting/using codecs, you may or may not have problems -- I have a lot of video software, a couple of Direct Show based tuner cards, & the latest related updates, so some older VFW stuff just doesn't work well, if at all. I have problems using Camstudio -- I can't record with it at all -- while Aplus Screen Recorder does work. VFW codecs are available in a wide range of *flavors*, including Windows Media [which does work with today's GOTD BTW] -- you may have to try more than one though, as not all codecs are intended to be fast enough for video capture of any sort. Check out videohelp.com's Tools page, &/or Google/Bing for Camstudio & VFW codecs.

Aplus Screen Recorder is almost portable, relying just on the program's registry key -- IOW no classes or components or anything beyond that key plus one for uninstall are added. The program's folder itself is ~8 MB holding 11 files, & the only other thing added to your hard drive is the Start Menu Shortcuts. With the exception of the Annotations stuff this screen recorder is pretty easy to figure out & use... Under Hotkey Setting you set keys for Record/Pause, Stop, & Cancel. Basic setting is where you set the destination folder, Record Region, Record Audio, & whether to record an .avi or .exe file, with what codec. Record, Sound, & Curser tabs or dialogs let you further control how the app behaves. In the lower right you open the Annotation dialog, & clicking the Camera button brings up a very simple video source dialog window -- it might work for you using a webcam or other video source, but I wouldn't count on it a whole lot.

There have been several alternatives on GOTD, or you can use the free Windows Media Encoder, or try the Free VirtualDub's screen capture in Capture mode, or use the free Unreal screen capture DS filter with most any video capture app, including VirtualDub's Capture mode. Camtasia I think has the most bells & whistles for recording things like tutorial videos, & every once in a while they give away older versions, while Fraps has long been a std for recording high fps screen video while gaming.

I did a video review using the software: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEuPPHgSncM

Long story short, it's not quite ready for primetime. Screen artifacts, image quality, difficulty dealing with gradients and animations, could not get audio to record from online sources (my own website!).

Another screencap prog gave me this no sound problem wanting only to record MIC. this turned out to be a soundcard driver issue since laptops usually dont have Line input or mixer options.SOLUTION..give it what it wants with HARDWARE..use a 3.5to3.5 stereo patch lead,very cheap from Cricklewood or Maplin amd connect the Headphone output to the Mic input,set the levels as low as possible to avoid overload distortion on the mic input and away you go recording from Mic input!well,it worked for me.

No audio for me as well. I have wasted an hour of my day trying to configure this for sound to work. I have done all that has been suggested above, and yet still no sound. I urge others to not waste your time with this software unless you do not mind not having sound.

Thanks anyway.

Some computers do not allow you to record audio from your sound card as a protection against copyright infringement. A work around is set your sound input to "mic" and get a cable with two male stereo connectors and plug one end into your headphone jack and the other end into your mic jack. The stereo connector I'm talking about is the same as the small one on a stereo headset. It worked with a previous program like this one. However, the sound eventually gets out of synch with longer videos.

This program registered easily and works. I heard no sound from what I recorded but this isn't a tool to copy netflix vids or other media you wish to copy. It's a way to create tutorials for teachers to narrate while the video is playing.

It's purpose is great for school teachers, home schoolers and people or companies who want to present a video tutorial of how to do something on the net.

I was recently hired to do a language editing program for a software company and a soundless video was linked in an email to show how to use it. It did include text though. Can this allow me to insert text instructions for clarification?

Nevertheless, I have always wanted a tool like this. It seems buggy. The vid was a smaller resolution than my actual demonstration. (The text size seemed two font size smaller than what I used)

It will take time to see what options I have but if I can't insert audio,I need to insert text unless I am there for the presentation.

The last program I downloaded like this had a RAT (Remote Access Trojan) They recored keylogs and vids of what you do. I am sure this company isn't doing that but I wonder who they ticked of to write this about their site

@ttrax (Or anyone else that might be thinking along the same lines): Don't use any type of "screen capture" software to save videos from YouTube. YouTube doesn't technically "stream" videos, they are downloaded to your computer and played using flash within your web browser.

So you computer will actually hold the video file (usually a *.flv file).

You need a software program that will capture and allow you to save the *.flv file.

As far as this software is concerned, I haven't tried it yet, but it probably would best be used (as far as I'm concerned) to capture video game action, and turn it into a movie of the action.

There is of course other software out there that is famous for capturing video game action, but it's not free (like this one is today), and the "demo" version only limits you to like 50 seconds recording time or something like that.

Installs and registers OK. I doubt that this should be the most perfect program for screen recording, though. The GUI is hard to read. Even at hi rate there are many "fall outs" during replay, and the recorded cursor jumps from place to place. I adjusted the sound module to fit my sound card, and yet no sound was recorded. The Start button works, but the Stop button doesn't (I had to use the short cut in stead).
I'm sorry, guys, but I have tried better tools for screen recording than this one.

Response to #2 (Audio Issues)
Under "Basic Settings" it appears by default "Record Audio" is disabled. Also, if you have a computer with IDT audio and both Internal Mic and Mic port, check the settings. The Default might be set to the opposite of the one you are trying to use.

Notes and BUGS:
- Company and Program name is in lower case in the Start menu, icons, and directories.

- You must select SAVE after any changes and after creating Video. This is because you can continue right from where you left off. Save ends the video and saves it.

- BUG: Basic Settings > Record Video > Settings Compressor Info > Type: Two exact version of Intel IYUV codec

- BUG: Basic Settings > Record Video > Settings > Compressor Info > Type: Intel IYUV codec (#1) = Color distored or missing. Grainy (possibly 4bit color?)

- BUG: Basic Settings > Record Video > Settings > Compressor Info > Type: Intel IYUV codec (#2) = No video

- BUG: Basic Settings > Record Video > Settings > Compressor Info > Type: Intel IYUV codec (#1) = Color distored or missing in video.

- BUG: Basic Settings > Record Region: Apointed region = Generates error and asks that you change region. Setting to Full works.

- BUG: Basic Settings > Record Region: Apointed region = Need better naming or a dialog box if you hover over a selection so one understands the option.

All test conducted on DELL Precision M2400, T9900 (3.06Ghz) 6GB Ram, VLAN, SPlayer and Windows Media Player 12.

Ok, I got this program, installed it, and tried recording video. It stops before it even starts recording and says "No wave device is installed that can record files in the current format". This has never happened to me before with any other screen and audio capturing programs. Also, does anyone know how to make this also record the audio FROM THE COMPUTER, not just from a mic?

If you're using your computer's internal sound card, you should have "stereo mix" enabled as input source in your recording software. However, if you're using an external recording interface (via USB or Firewire), you'll probably only hear the streaming audio but won't get it recorded. That's a provision by the manufacturer against recording of copyright-protected audio. Your mic recording will still get recorded if you select mic input in your hardware's recording app.

@ttrax (comment #2): Make sure "Stereo Mix" is selected. If you want to record Youtube Video with sound then Mic will not be of any help for this. I've not downloaded or tried this software as yet. I've developed one similar application before and offered an option to select Audio Input device just for this purpose. I hope this software also has such option, else you can always go to your System's Sound Settings and select Stereo Mix as your default Audio Input device.

I hope this will help you (and others who're interested in similar activity)! :-) Of course, Vincent (the support guy of this software; ref: comment #1) is already here and he may give you all a better guidance than me.

Cheers,

Ruturaaj.
