Easy Video Recorder for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Easy Video Recorder is a stripped-down screen capture tool to record whatever you are doing on your computer's screen, whether for presentation, tutorial, or storage. The result is an easy-to-use tool that will capture the basics on your screen without any advanced editing features -- a perfect companion if you need to make a quick video with no bells and whistles.

After installing Easy Video Recorder, the interface will pop up, showing you a small window with a handful of options. From these options you can choose the size of what you will capture, whether to capture audio with it, mouse cursor, and a few other options for what will appear onscreen, as well as where the captured video file will be stored. All of this can be adjusted rather quickly so you can start recording in just a few seconds. The recording process works seamlessly, allowing you to move into and out of recording with keystrokes. All files are saved as QuickTime video for editing, though you can also record other types of media into MOV files.

Easy Video Recorder is not a powerful video creation tool. It lacks a lot of the advanced editing, input source selection, and other recording tools that you'll find in some of the pricier options on the market; but it works very well for what it is and the interface shows you all the tools you'll need. While not a perfect solution, it is a low-cost one and it offers a free trial with all features unlocked, so you can check if it is a good fit for your needs.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Easy Video Recorder for Mac 1.5.
