    "Disappointing"

    January 22, 2012  |   By beckyy92

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    It caps in pretty good quality

    Cons

    Can't use this app well on video screen capturing games. I tried playing a game and running this up. It made it a little box in the left corner of the screen. Even when adjusting settings I couldn't change it.
    Also, it lags very bad and is extremely slow to run.
    Skips seconds when you play it back. It will cut them out all together.
    Makes files only AVI and not any file. Which means you can't use it in any other program. Not idea how to fix it!
    Sound sounds awful and hard to hear. Even with speakers up pretty loud.

    Summary

    Waste of time.

    Updated on Jan 22, 2012

    just a pain because no screen capturing program has worked well for me so far. There is some problem with all of them! Any one have any suggestions on a good one?!

    "Works great! Exactly what i was looking for"

    January 7, 2012  |   By twincitiesgolf

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    Was looking for an easy to use screen capture video program that i can use to create training videos for my staff and clients. Downloaded the free trial version and it worked great so just purchased for $39

    Cons

    It's not HD quality (or maybe i haven't figured out how to adjust the settings) but still very satisfied

    "Bizarre awesome!"

    December 14, 2011  |   By gorocketgo

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    On sale for 40 dollars. Full function.
    NO rendering time needed. How do they do it. I have tried all the screen capture programs. Almost wrote a check for 350.00 for a top rated competitor. This is TRULY my software purchase of the year (and last year).

    Saves in 720HD .mov which is easy to edit. Just a wonderful product. Might try some of their other products.

    Note: People always ask me for computer help. I just record my screen and upload it to GoogleDocs. They have my help whenever they need it. Saves me a trip.

    Bravo guys, bravo!

    Cons

    Needs to be easier to pause/unpause. Waaah! (just whining)

    Summary

    I put a "buy" on this awesome program. Its ease of use will change your life.

    "Pretty good software"

    December 6, 2011  |   By paulettepromero

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    Has many different recording options like including avi, wmv, flv, mpg, 3gp, mp4, mov and more

    Cons

    Audio doesnt work when recording with .flv

    Summary

    I have a Windows 7 machine with 3GB of ram and the software worked pretty well for me. I was basically looking for something that could record webinars because I had registered for 20 in one week. I had issues with the audio when recording in .flv format, so I switched to .avi and it worked great. I probably recorded like 17 of them in .avi and they all look and sound good. The 1 hour long webinars recorded in .avi came to approximately 100mb each for the videos, which isn't a lot. Bear in mind that the software uses the microphone in your webcam to pick up the audio. Someone else may have figured out another way to pick up the audio but that's how it worked on my computer.

    "I couldn't get it to work. Maybe it's me??"

    November 25, 2011  |   By thomas_trotter

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    I don't know. I wanted to record an audio visualization with the audio to either .avi or .wmv format. Neither one worked. Maybe I didn't have something set right. But it seems to me, for what they're charging, they should have some automatic settings for doing what I wanted to do. It wasn't covered in their faq. I followed the directions and it didn't work for me.

    Cons

    No support either.

    Summary

    I want something that has presets for recording both the audio and the video from audio visualisations in WinAmp and Windows Media Player. This didn't seem to have anything like that.

    "Best audio/video screen capture software I've found"

    November 13, 2011  |   By ewhampton

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    * Works as expected (a lot of these types of programs are based on the same open source code that doesn't work right).
    * Has lots of current encoders to choose from. Downloads codecs on demand as necessary.
    * Shows audio levels on screen so you can see if your audio is being captured properly.
    * This is the first software I've found that flawlessly synced the audio and video over 2.5 minutes.

    Cons

    No apparent option to exclude mouse movements from being captured.

    Summary

    After trying out software all day long, I am relieved to finally find this program that works as expected. I was afraid I was going to have to write it myself.

    "Hard to un-install"

    November 9, 2011  |   By dcnllaw

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    Has several good features.

    Cons

    Help seemed a little on the wanting side

    Summary

    I downloaded the free trial. Before I could get it doing what I needed it to time ran out and I was not ready to buy. The uninstall left all the NCH Software folders in Windows\Programs and left hundreds of Registry entries. Had quite a time getting it all cleaned out.

    "Reverted to v1.61"

    October 28, 2011  |   By clemenzina

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    Fairly easy for a non-techie to set up and use. Good screen capture when it works.

    Cons

    1.62 the capture area wouldn't hold, either for video recording or for screenshots. 1.61 does hold the area for video recording but not for screenshots, the capture area slews across the screen when you hit the hotkey.

    No support from Debut if you haven't paid extra on top of the licence payment.

    Summary

    Reverted to 1.61, which I only use for screen capture (a live video stream) and use it a lot, but the lack of working screenshot is a real drag, if only it worked as it's supposed to it would be so slick.

    If you are going to pay for software, go for one where you get some kind of support included in the price. They're disingenuous insisting on a support fee when they must know their software is buggy.
