Suggestions for full screen recording software?
« on: December 04, 2018, 06:05:35 PM »
I occasionally want to record some online video. Have been using ATOMI ActivePresenter but the new version mostly crashes when attempting to record and won't relaunch without a computer restart (and they've removed the older versions).

Any suggestions. Relatively simple and free would be best.

Thanks.

I have used the free version of screencast-o-matic without any problems. I think the free version is only 15 minute limit and every time you create a video of automatically shuts down and you have to open it again to make another capture.

Simplest: You could use your phone's camera to video record your computer screen.

Simple: If you have an Apple device on IOS 11, it has a built in screen recorder to record the screen.

Another option is to use a video downloader to download the video from whatever site you're viewing it from.

There's also this OBS Software but I've never used it before. https://obsproject.com

Thanks to respondents.  :shaka:

I solved the problem by downloading an earlier version of the software I had been using. In a moment of weakness I had clicked on "Download updated version"... even though my experience is "never do that" due to "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

I've used OBS with positive results.
