Hi everyone
I'm looking for a software (either free or paid preferably free) that could record a program (what it's doing)and save it in a video format (MPEG,AVI,etc.)
I already found FRAPS which can record up to 30 sec.s only (Paid version has unlimited time)
FRAPS can record Game play and is quite an excellent software I have found.
But do you have any other suggestions on other softwares that I can try out?
Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Sorry though I've forgot to mentioned I've already tried Cam Studio recently...
It can record as long as you want but the problem is...the sound
Cam Studio can't record the sound..
I try recording it from my microphone but nothing happens...then I did it on speakers...It came out still with no sound..
I made sure that my settings were accurate but none of them seem to explain why can't it record sound
Any other suggestions?
Thanks :thumbsup:

Could record with Windows Movie Maker Simultaneously.

just hit the narrate timeline button (the microphone above the clips) and set your settings so your audio device is your speakers and your Audio input source is Stereo Mix.

Record, then open up Cam Studio.

Worth a shot I guess.

It worked! Thanks Sp0nge :thumbsup:
But the sound when I recorded it in Windows Media Player seems to be different..it came out not exactly it was supposed to
Also,How would I record both sound and visual during game play?

I found a trial software which was Camtasia free 30 day trial
Decided to try it out but if it wouldn't work,I'd then switch to River Past Screen Recorder
Thanks for the help :thumbsup:
If there are other softwares which you may have found,pls. feel free to suggest.

Good idea SpOnge!, how about this, bit long winded but it may work.

- How about you record your screen activity with camstudio.
- Loop a 3.5mm audio cable from your speakers into your mic input and use audacity to record the sound
- Use Windows movie maker to pair together
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

It worked :thumbsup:
Although the problem is, each time I record it in video (on during gameplay) it shows nothing but black...
same is for the rest of the other softwares I tried...
The only software that worked was FRAPS which records fps
I'm currently looking for softwares that can record game play
But out of luck,I found none and as I search,many of the sites were loaded with malware (by Site advisor)
Any other software suggestions? (either free or paid)

What do you mean FRAPS just records fps?

FRAPS does record gameplay. Atleast for me.

As far as I've search,FRAPS is the only software that can record gameplay....
From several other forums...
If you try it with softwares like Camtasia Studio,RiverPast..it would work since all I see when I play the video is black

I like to record with FRAPs, and then add realistic sounds. Adds to the atmosphere IMO :thumbsup:

just my 2 cents
