Editors' review

This program makes capturing screenshots of PC activities a hassle-free affair, although it has a few shortcomings. Easy Video Capture's main window isn't tough to comprehend, and we appreciate that basic recording functions can be performed via hot keys. Still, we wished the program could record clips in a format other than AVI. You can not only set audio and video quality, you also can decide what area of the screen you want to capture and then disable the cursor from appearing in your clip. The full version lets you annotate your clips with captions, although the trial version won't let you access that feature. If you're using an older computer, be forewarned that Easy Video Capture may take a toll on your PC's performance, though we had no problems when using a standard machine. Desktop-support specialists and computer instructors will like this program's no-nonsense approach.

    "When it works - it works great"

    March 04, 2008   |   By davidj2i

    Version: Easy Video Capture 1.3

    Pros

    Easy to use, being able to hide the mouse and select a certain area of your screen to capture is exactly what I was looking to find. You can also modify the quality of the recording easily. Inexpensive.

    Cons

    I had to re-install everytime I wanted to demo. I'll probably buy. I can re-install when I need it if necessary. Not as full featured as more expensive options.

    "Not immediately useful"

    February 18, 2007   |   By simono1958

    Version: Easy Video Capture 1.3

    Pros

    Free to try and quick to download.

    Cons

    I couldn't get it to work. With me it failed to capture the screen. I tried a few things. Perhaps it can be made to work (some clearly have done so) but I need something I can just "plug and play."

    "Works well, but slow."

    September 23, 2005   |   By Music540genhill

    Version: Easy Video Capture 1.3

    Pros

    It's easy to use, only takes seconds to get it up and running.

    Cons

    Made my computer run slowly (and my computer is full of RAM etc.). When you play it back, it's clear but not as clear as the original.

    "works but sloooooooow"

    September 16, 2005   |   By fixindan

    Version: Easy Video Capture 1.3

    Pros

    it does record. those that only see a blank recording need to check the "full screen" box under either video settings or recording settings (can't remember which, and i've already uninstalled it). it also has a lot of features.

    Cons

    this thing is so slow. it hogs up 96% of my cpu capacity when it's recording, and my laptop is not extremely old (1.4 GHz). thus i can't do anything when it's recording, and the recorded video is very choppy (almost like a slide show). bottom line is it didn't work me.

    "Amazing how easy it is."

    August 16, 2005   |   By Mr.Fox

    Version: Easy Video Capture 1.3

    Pros

    I tried to download two other products that didn't even work, but this one I was actually using in 30 seconds. It does everything I need and is really simple. Click the record button and it gives you a cursor to outline the area you want to record and then it starts. That easy.

    Cons

    It slowed my computer down some while recording with the stock video card but I'll buy a new one tomorrow. It doesn't appear to have a million features, but I don't need them anyway.
