colin, from the FFMPEG website I have no idea BUT certain Chinese developers have built 4.0 and 4.1 versions without the windows 7 dependancy BUT never released the source code and just privatly used it in their products against the terms of GPLv3. I have found the binaries for the staticly linked FFMPEG.EXE and the dynamically linked FFMPEG.EXE, FFPROBE.EXE and the DLL's and am willing to share them via a onedrive public URL if any developer wants to maintain Vista compatability but I cannot provide the source code obviously.

Thanks everyone before me for all the detailed comments. I've been very happy with ZDsoft Screen Recorder but got a marketing email saying I could download VOV Screen Recorder for free, and then saw it on GOTD, so I thought I would check it out. It's obviously not going to find a home in my system! No sound? It erases previous recordings without warning? Doesn't save any settings? Recording region lines show up in video?

Maybe if they offered it as a beta test to get some feedback and were up front about this not being a complete product.... But to offer this for sale? Very glad to have such thoughtful community members save my day!

To keep a long story short:
• I also find Vovsoft dubious but have no proof. So just avoid in order to manage the risk.
• If you have ZDsoft Screen Recorder and/or the recent Tuneskit Screen Recorder, then you do NOT need this Vov Screen Recorder.

Seriously! Was this some kid's show and tell project! An abysmal attempt, doesn't record, no pause and no instructions ... And worst of all they want us to buy it! Could have knocked up better in my spare time using Visual Basic.

Doesn't record anything. Have tried multiple times and it appears to be recording, but when I go to the folder, nothing is there.

No instructions of any kind. For example how do you move the recording area to the area you want to record? I've looked online and Vov website, not an inkling. Looks like another waste of time!

rabbit, rabbit, You click on the "region" and move it to where you want it and then close region.The trouble for me is it records the region i want but the output video has two of the region lines moved to the center of the video.Weird...Uninstalled.

The worst screen recorder I have ever tested!

I have tested many many screen recorders on Windows, just to find one that can fully record screen together with AUDIOS playing from my PDF files (so far only one could!)

This software could not, either. But it was even worst:

- Downloaded zip file from GATD, unzipped it and installed on Win 7, x64 without problem. Activated the software successfully as guided in the Readme file, but you would have to type the code MANUALLY, not copy & paste. Not sure why, since it showed a Paste button to the right!!!

- The software allowed you to select your own output destination for recorded videos, BUT you would have to first create a folder in Windows Explorer (or others). It only allowed you to select an existing folder!!! Crazy enough?

- I tested to record one video in MP4 format, and nothing happened! No output file found! Then I changed to record in MOV format. And it worked. Then changed again to record in MP4, and it worked! Again, and agan. BUT, I found that the output file names always were "output" AND the software would automatically erase the previous output file of the SAME format. It means if you forgot to rename or move the recorded files, you may lose them forever just by recording a new screen! Hmmm!!!!

- Even with those bad things, I thought I might still keep this software if it could record audios inside my PDF files. But it could not do that.

- And you also see the software has an outdated UI.

Definitely uninstalled this software. There are many free, open source screen recorders that can do much better than this.

HQ, Found much the same, plus - jerky video (definition was ok) and no sound (MP4)

@HQ, you wrote this:

Which screen recorder was it that was so good?

Reply   |   Comment by Brian  –  24 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Brian,

That is Movavi Screen Capture. I think I got it from GATD too. It is good screen recorder but not the best, but the only one that allows me to capture audio playing inside PDF files after some changes in its preferences setting.

If you don't care about audio from PDF files, ZDsoft Screen Recorder (I got from GATD too) seems better. It records audio from the system or mic, but not from PDF.

Good free screen recorders can be Camstudio, or Ispring...

If you replace the FFMPEG.EXE with a build that runs under windows Vista the program works as designed under Vista just fine BUT it's got several things lacking in the design.
1: It does not even attempt to capture any audio from the system or default record device so the resultant video capture has no audio stream.
2: when you stop capture FFMPEG.EXE continues on with no progress notification or completion notification when it has finally finished encoding the captured vide.
3: you cannot know within the program when it is ok to play the encoded captured video file without using a tool like task manager to watcg FFMPEG.EXE process and wait for it to end, only then is the output video file valid and safe to view in an external player.

One good thing is the mp4 profile it uses does not subsample the chroma so colours captured are as close to original as possible with AVC x264 encoding. Colour is encoded YUV 4:4:4

It is nice to see the vendor admitting they used FFMPEG in their program up front! Does that mean vovsoft is going to honour the GPLv3 license they are using it under and make the source available for the entire product since that's one of the terms if you build FFMPEG.EXE with GPLv3 licensing enabled and incorporate it into your own project! They should also include the file GPLv3.TXT with the program too in order to be compliant with the FFMPEG license.

TK, It does not remember any choices made when running it. It defaults to placing captured video file onto the current users desktop and while it can be changed you can browser to a different folder or drive letter but you cannot create a new folder in the folder selection form. When you close the program and restart it reverts back to dropping the captured video on the current users desktop and always defaults to H264 MP4 file type. There are no program settings files and the registry entry :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VOVSOFT\Vov Screen Recorder

is completley empty of any values.

They should save chosen video file type, they should save currently selected capture area and whether it is capturinng the selected area or full screen and they should save the user selected output location and permit file creation and rename in the folder selection form dialog. The should also capture WASAPI audio and let the user select the sound object to capture and permit capturing the default input device at the same time. matteres not if they save these parameters in the above mentioned key or in the current users %APPDATA%\Vov Screen Recorder\settings.ini file or xml file but it's got to do more and do it better than this!
