Editors' Review

Free Webcam Recorder records and produces video in six different formats using your Webcam. You can also take still pictures with this fast application, but routine crashes and lack of support may discourage you from continued use.

Pros

Excellent, accessible recording: Free Webcam Recorder supports MP4, WMV, FLV, AVI, MPG, and MOV file types, so you will always be able to share and view your videos. All video formats, as well as the still pictures, retained the quality of our native Webcam.

Easy to use: This application is very basic in its design and layout. There are only four main buttons needed for use, and a short, informative guide is located on the bottom of the screen that explains how to use the program.

Cons

No support: Free Webcam Recorder provides a link to its Web site, but no support options were available other than a standard email address. The how-to guide included with the application is sufficient, but there are no options for further advanced questions.

Frequent instability: Our test recordings always resulted in Free Webcam Recorder ceasing to work. Videos were still saved, but the regular crashes slowed down the recording process tremendously.

Bottom Line

Free Webcam Recorder does exactly what it is meant to do, and we see it as a good tool that needs a little more work. Similar applications, like Fotofriend, give you access to special effects during recording. This would be a great addition to Free Webcam Recorder, in our opinion. We recommend you only download Free Webcam Recorder if you can handle the routine instability; otherwise, please explore more helpful programs.

"Records instantly"

July 27, 2015  |  By TanyaCoppage

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

this is a technologically advanced software app which can be used to record webcam images accurately. It supports several file formats such as FLV, AVI, MP4 and so forth. I can now watch videos and even share it with my friends, thanks to this free recorder tool. The app has a few basic features which are quite simple. The installation process hardly requires any effort. It also includes a help guide with a few buttons. The tool is apt for recording video images on the webcams. The app is undoubtedly one of the best tools for a hassle free recording.

Cons

this is an ideal tool without any defects as such. It could however include a few more features to make it perfect.

"Record from your computer"

May 14, 2015  |  By Steve L. Herman

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

Whenever I didn't have my phone or camera handy, I really wanted to use my webcam to record things but I didn't get good results before. For a free app, this one does good work. I like its interface. Most might find it a bit simplistic but I like that its functional. The app works.

Cons

Sluggish sometimes

"Good for little home movies"

April 30, 2015  |  By Sylvia B. Bowles

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

A lovely piece of software if you wanna record home movies on the fly and don't have your camera or phone handy. The user interface is simple and easy to use, won't have any problem figuring out how it works. Not meant for any other purpose.

Cons

Choppy recording and sometimes freezes up.

"Made unwanted modifications to my settings!"

April 15, 2015  |  By Obed Marquez

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

Nothing. The application modified Firefox settings including Homepage. And that just with the downloader, can't imagine what would have done if I installed (and no, there was no Option for it, it just did it)

Cons

The application in itself. If you make changes to the user environment, be it Firefox or absolutely anything without prior asking for it (unless it is part of the application) it sucks.

It changed my Firefox settings just with the downloader, which is fairly common practice, but they always ask. This @#$ program didn't even ask, just did.

Summary

If you want your web explorer being modified without your approval, and probably unwanted and hidden modifications in your computer by installing such an app, go ahead.

"Above average"

March 31, 2015  |  By Michael A. Hendrick

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

This tool works just above average. It is a good recorder and lets you take pictures as well. It also supports different formats of videos. I basically like its simplicity and the ease of use. It acts fast but sometimes it just gets stuck when I am in the middle of taking pictures or recording a video otherwise it works fine

Cons

Just one issue mentioned above.
