Do you use free screen recording software?

by Jacky Nguyen 15 replies
Hi guys,
Recording computer screen has become one of my favourite activities everyday. It can not only show what i am doing with my computer but also showing my audience about useful tips on SEO, marketing as well as product demonstration. I especially like to discover new FREE SCREEN RECORDING SOFTWARE that work well.
And of course, this activity is one of the most important part for my marketing campaign.

I am currently working with ActivePresenter, created by Atomi Systems. It allow me to do such work like:
- Recording computer screen in full motion, high quality videos.
- Customized screen area for recording.
- Record mouse cursor path that is very useful when you want your audience to look at the movement of the mouse.
- Some basic video editing feature to create screencast.

So, that what I wanna share with you. How about other free screen recording software you are using? Share with me.

    I've used TinyTake and Open Broadcaster so far. Haven't come across the one you're using, but almost all screen recording software are the same. It's just a matter of choosing which one you're comfortable with while getting the results that you like.

      It seems to have recording time limit in OBS, right?

    If you're a Mac user, then, the QuickTime player is integrated for free, it works on HD and lets you capture and record the screen while doing tasks and that's great for tutorials, demonstrations etc.

    I've tested at least 8-9 different free screen recording programs and Active Presenter is by far the most powerful of the bunch.


    The downside is that with more power (features) is that it has a higher learning curve. What separates Active Presenter from the other free options is that it has a built in video editor that's pretty decent.

    Do any of these software packages provide password blurring? FWIW I use FlashBack Express Recorder. It doesn't do the blurry bit - wish it did - but apart from that it's really good IMO.
