- Horrible customer support - Video/Sound quality is pretty bad if you're recording both from mic and webcam on messenger - Compatibility problems with (x64bit Win OS) - Compatibility problems with Windows Live Messenger
The concept was a great idea. The customer service used to be decent, but it went downhill when they stop replying to my emails and IM. They did not help me with my problem, but rather to downgrade different versions until it works. As for the newest update (v3.1.08), it has a Custom Region Selection feature that allows you to record a selection of your primary monitor (does not record secondary). Auto Selection does not lock on to the webcam. Sound quality is pretty poor, and has been tested on different computers. The biggest problem is that the files get corrupted at times, during the middle of a conference, or when you press 'Stop' to end the recording. Customer Service still hasn't replied about that situation. Tried many AVI recovery tools, and sadly, it's completely hopeless. For a trial version, feel free to try it out, but it's not worth the purchase.
