A Screen Recorder can be useful to you when you wish to clearly answer some frequently asked questions, to show someone a how-to-do video, or just record a game walk-through. These recorders just capture what you do on your screen in a video format (along with the audio) and then you can share the video with your friends on various video sharing websites. Many Screen recording software have made it to the market. So here’s a quick look on few of the best FREE Screen recorders.
This is one of the most popular screen recording software. With this open source software, you can record your activities on the screen and get high standard AVI files. The best thing about this software is that it gives you complete control on the video that you wish to record.
Not only can you record only a section of a screen (if you wish to), but also you can minimize the quality if you wish to obtain smaller videos. Of course, you can have high quality videos for burning onto CDs / DVDs, etc. Not to forget, you can customize the cursors appearing on screen and also the audio to be recorded.
Webinaria is another open source free screen recording software that creates AVI files of your screen recordings. This software also provides you with the option of creating FLV files. Just like CamStudio, Webinaria also allows to add voice commentary of your choice. Another feature that gives this software an edge over the others is that it can combine another video like that of a webcam with the process of screen recording.
This is an online screen recording software that gives you instant screen recordings without the need for you to download anything other than Java on your computer. All you need to do is to create an account in which the recordings are saved. Once the screencast is recorded, it is easy for you to share on various sites by copying the URL. However, the only set back with this is that recording can be done only for a maximum of five minutes. Otherwise, this one is fun!
