Hi forum,

I want to video record my working steps in my screen. Is there any windows built-in tool I can use to video recording my computer screen ?

(Yes, I know there is other alternative to do it, suhc as ask my mum to hand-held my camera to capture my screen during I am working. But the quality is no good, blur and shaking all the time.)

If windows has no built-in tool to do it. Do you have other third part software recommend ?

Thanks.

As far as I know, there is no built in Windows 7 feature to do this. However, there is alot of 3rd party software that will allow you to do this easily. Below are links to two of the more popular ones:

Cam Studio (Freeware/Open Source): http://camstudio.org/

HyperCam (free version has watermark, paid version is watermark-free): http://www.hyperionics.com/hc/


There's also more listed on Cnet:

Thanks.

Cam Studio has no Win 7 version. I guess this software is fading out from the market.

HyperCam is difficult to use. The output is seperate into video and audio, user have to combine it after recording. This makes me a bit confuse to use.

Would there has the simplest UI of screen capture softwares ?

I've used CamStudio on Windows 7 (in fact, I have it installed right now).

Are you having problems installing it? Normally if software is compatible with Vista, it'll work on Win 7.

I found CamStudio in CNET: http://download.cnet.com/CamStudio/3000-13633_4-10067101.html?tag=mncol;2

please see the left comlumn which has no Win7 version.

Then, I don't want to get into the trobule of installation and removal process. So, I didn't installed and replied you the situation.

How's your Win7 running the CamStudio ? Is it the version 2.6b ?

Do you have any idea which screen capture UI is the most simplest to use ? Complexity makes me hard to use.

Thanks.

I have Version 2.6. No B on it. I doubt that will matter though. It should work, because as I said - if it works for Vista it normally works on Windows 7. I recommended CamStudio because, in my opinion, it is the easiest to use.

I would also recommend downloading directly from the site (http://www.camstudio.org/) instead of the CNET link. That way you will get the most current version.

While researching, I came across another screen recorder: Jing. http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html I've never used it, but you may want to look into it.

If you want to record video in win7 than many software available for making some best video recording of the music. I always prefer some best software for recording the video on my computer.

It is based on Java so you should install JAVA JRE first.
