    "Works great!"

    February 5, 2012  |   By Lynn06

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    I downloaded the FREE version, not the trial version, since I only wanted software to capture the video and audio from some instructional videos on the internet. If I use it for anything else it will be to make a few instructional videos for my office. So...for my simple needs it gets an A+++. The included tutorial is good although I had to play with the software a few minutes 'cause it didn't work quite the same as in the tutorials but I suppose it will be different on everyone's computer. Be sure to tick off your selections in the File/Options menu. I have Windows 7, 64 bit and no issues. I have not tried to use it with my webcam nor have I tried the scheduling. If you want something really simple to do just plain video/audio capture by all means try the free version and be sure to watch the tutorial (in the edit menu). I couldn't be happier. And what's better than free?

    Cons

    I haven't used it enough to find any.

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    Can't give any pros. Software did not work for me!

    Cons

    I downloaded this in hopes of making a video with my webcam, but it didn't work at all so I deleted it.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time with it.

    "Disappointing"

    February 1, 2012  |   By gogoplex

    Version: Debut Video Capture Software 1.64

    Pros

    It worked during the trial period

    Cons

    After I paid for the professional version and registered it it stopped working,I emailed customer support and they have not replied for two weeks. The program will not run except in compatibility mode for XP 2sp, then it will not completely shut down. When I uninstalled the program all of my video software stopped working, so I had to restore my system files to get my other software working.

    Summary

    Debut ver 1.64 does not work after you pay for it, there is no refund, and you can't uninstall it with its built in uninstall.exe, Windows Uninstaller, or Revo Uninstaller Without Major Problems with other Video Capture Software installed on your PC.

    "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?!

    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.
