    "GPF on Windows XP"

    February 2, 2013  |   By alexferri2

    Version: Desktop Video Recorder 3.0

    Pros

    I wish I could add pros here but the software didn't start on my XP. Straight out GPF.

    Cons

    Would not run

    Summary

    Maybe it is good but I could not run it so I remain defending 1AVCapture as the best desktop recorder out there, not so much because of its screen capture abilities but also because it records audio tracks as well.

    "BUGGY BUGGY BUGGY"

    July 8, 2012  |   By brainout

    Version: Desktop Video Recorder 3.0

    Pros

    no pro features

    Cons

    1. Beware default installation toolbars are selected.
    2. Requires Camtasia TechSmith codec, which means you must have Camtasia. Warning message starts the program, and maybe is the cause of bug #3.
    3. BUGGY after installation, have to keep using TaskMaster. The tabs don't work, so you can't even set up your preferences.
    4. HAS NO UNINSTALL. I had to use Norton GoBack to uninstall the program.

    Summary

    Snotty program which won't even let you check it out, unless you have installed the Camtasia TechSmith codec. Which, I actually have, but it didn't detect. XP Home, Acer Inspire One was the machine on which I tried to install.

    Really, if you want to sell a program, make the trial version usable on a common machine.

    "Next to being the best Video Recorder for Desktop."

    March 20, 2010  |   By rokcett

    Version: Desktop Video Recorder 3.0

    Pros

    Simple to use interface.
    Very good audio recording.
    Excellent Quality video recording-given you have good compressors/codecs.
    Records for hours and does NOT crash!

    Cons

    Price= $49.99.

    Summary

    If you're used to having your Desktop video recording programs crashing when you try to record for over an hour, then witness the savior. Desktop Video Recorder. Probably the best Desktop Video Recording Software.
    It records ,surprisingly, very good audio. And has nice options to let you set up the audio-but it's bare bones.
    The video recording is what really counts in a software like this, and this doesn't disappoint. his Video Recorder does not crash when recording for over an hour. This is huge in a program like this. Have you used CamStudio? Then you know the ability to record for over 10 minutes without a program crashing is heaven.
    There is almost no wait time after you record as the file is ready for you the second you press stop. But make sure you have enough space on your system, one recording I did of 59 minutes took up around 24GB of space on a 32 bit system set up. This software allows to record for hours. For those who only want to put up clips of their favorite film on YouTube this isn't that important. But for those who want the ability to record hours of Desktop activity for Tutorials, or record masterpiece films and then put it on YouTube or other website (a lot of people do that now a days in the age of easy piracy). This software will allow you to do all that. Press Record and you're off.

    If you have good compressors and Codecs you can get DVD quality video. Provided of course you have a PC powerhouse that won't dip the frame rates.
    Visually it's nothing too special. Simple and clean, gray and white look. It's a good thing because it's simple to navigate and find you need.

    The biggest draw back is the price. At $49.99 It's pretty high, especially that apart from recording video it doesn't allow you to do anything else with it. You can't edit it with this software. With a price like that you would expect the ability to edit your videos. But what you do get is the most stable Desktop Video Recording software.
