Desktop recorder

Record your actions with this simple program.

YouRecorder provides a simple set of controls for recording all desktop action on a computer. With its incredibly simple controls and impressive results, this is a great tool for documenting your work.

YouRecorder's iPhone-mimicking interface is easy to operate and understand from the start. We never felt lost or confused since its commands are so intuitive. The program provides four distinct functions, all of which operate in basically the same manner. Whether you want to record your entire desktop, part of the screen, a small window, a video game, or a Webcam, the controls are a simple RECORD and STOP button buried in the corner of your screen. While the Webcam option distinguishes itself from the rest of the features by providing a small video monitor for recording, the video game setting doesn't seem much different from what many other programs offer. Nevertheless, it records game play as advertised. You can watch a playback of the onscreen action in real time. It feels like a great tool for documenting actions such as software controls or for creating instructional films. The program's strongest feature is its single-button conversion of recordings to .wmv or .avi file formats. However, at every turn this program is simple to operate and provides impressive results.

YouRecorder's trial period limits you to 100-second recordings with watermarks. It installs desktop icons without permission and leaves folders after uninstalling.
