    "CamStudio20 Review"

    July 24, 2011  |   By FranOnTheEdge


    Easy to use from the first, audio okay, video looked okay too.


    Caused Bryce7 pro to freeze halfway through the animation/video, and then caused the PC to freeze and the screen to constantly flash green light - this obliterated all progs running including the Task Manager when I tried to close CamStudio via that.


    I hope the newer version is better - I can't use version 2. Will download 2.6 now.

    Updated on Aug 1, 2011

    There's no change with version 2.6 - it still crashes, so it's not useable. Which is a real pity because right up until it crashes it works beautifully. But if it crashes before you've said what you wanted to say, right in the middle of a sentence, before you've been able to demonstrate anything at all - it's just plain useless.
    If it ever gets fixed, I would like to know, but until then I'll just have to forget it. Sorry.
