    "Good for general purpose capture."

    May 03, 2013

    Version: AMCap 9.21 build 156.3

    Pros

    Will capture most connected video devices.

    Cons

    Would have gotten 5 stars if it could do time lapse still captures and capture more than one device at a time.

    "Tight, efficient, Windows-friendly utility"

    October 20, 2012   |   By Ignatius_Reilly

    Version: AMCap 9.21 build 156.3

    Pros

    - interface closely adheres to IBM/Microsoft Windows conventions so that it is extremely intuitive for Windows users
    - windows can be sized and dragged exactly as expected
    - quick setup, quick program start, quick video acquisition
    - can run multiple program instances to monitor multiple video streams
    - videos can easily be run "full screen" with no Windows borders

    Cons

    IMO, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this software although I recognize that many people are dissatisfied because they assume that it is something more than it is. It might be regarded as more of a "utility" than a full-featured program.

    Summary

    I have only run AMCap on Windows 7, where it has performed flawlessly. I have had great difficulties with more elaborate programs. I considered just using the software from my hardware manufacturer, a leading vendor of webcams, mice, keyboards and such. I was amazed that their software allows only a smallish window in which to view their 1080p webcam image! And with the vendor software, there is no way to view the output of more than one webcam at a time. AMCap beautifully overcame both these limitations. But it is not the solution for advanced features such as launching an unattended recording session based on movement within the image. Yes, I feel that the rock-solid basic features of AMCap should be standard from the hardware vendor and the base upon which more sophisticated programs are built. Unfortunately, AMCap is the only package I have found that even does these basic things really well.
