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.

"DO NOT DOWNLOAD! FULL OF VIRUSES!"

September 08, 2014  |  By Bob4744

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

Installer contains 10 viruses including VOPackage, Systweak, Goobzo, pastaleads, SearchModule, YTAHelper, MyPC Backup, RegClean Pro, RocketTab, and YouTube Accelerator. Had to use a combination of Sandboxie, Autoruns, Process Explorer, and Safe Mode to delete them all. The viruses installed a system driver, system services, scheduled tasks, and startup registry keys. The viruses changed the homepages and default search engines in all my browsers, and set up a proxy so that I could not access the Internet after I deleted the programs. Avoid this installer at all costs! Skill needed to uninstall all of this c-rap if you install it accidentally: VERY ADVANCED. After this experience I will not be downloading CNET programs anymore. I recommend Fil-eHippo instead.

"Malware Installer"

August 14, 2014  |  By Pooua

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

I don't care.

Cons

After I installed this software, Google Chrome filled the bottom of my screen with several pop-up ads, including video and sound. Even after I uninstalled this software, the ads persist. I cannot get rid of the popups. If I find out who is responsible, I will prosecute them to the full extent I am able.

Summary

Don't install this piece of garbage!

Pros

It records your every keystroke.

Cons

Full of spyware, adware and other bad stuff. It automatically installs this, even if you don't install the recording program. Don't download it.

DON'T DOWNLOAD IT.

"Spews Malware all over your computer"

May 17, 2014  |  By MiddleAgedWhiteGuy

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

Does provide a simple webcam interface

Cons

Asks you about 6 or so malware in the installations with the "Decline" link almost invisible.
Then, even after you decline them all, it still installs Trovi search and you cannot remove it from Chrome.

Summary

Avoid this unless you enjoy malware all over your computer.

"Now I never miss a topic in my meet review"

May 15, 2014  |  By Raybyerly

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

I can record all the meetings with my clientele and replay them again whenever I want. Now I can finally make a meeting review without missing even a single topic. All I need to do is see the video again and check if I forgot anything. This tool is very simple to use. Just few clicks and it starts working.

Cons

I am very messy with technology but I had no problem in operating it.

"Does what it says but be warned, crapware attached."

May 08, 2014  |  By Helter99

 |  Version: Free Webcam Recorder 1.0

Pros

Easy enough to use.

Cons

Preview aspect ratio distorted. The recording window is not resizeable. Could do with a spell check (Recording Stoped, really? :)
This software should also come with a PC Health Warning. The installer has one of the sneakiest crapware installers I have ever had the misfortune to encounter, see the summary for more.

Summary

Do not be hasty when you install this program but look carefully at what you are installing. When the installer first runs you are presented with something that looks like a T&C's window. READ IT. It is an offer for some crapware. There is only one button, in the bottom right corner, and that's the one that accepts the offer and installs the unwanted software. Look in the bottom left corner and you will see the word DECLINE. It's not a button but it is clickable. Click decline to avoid killing your PC. Now you will be offered a few more unwanted software titles but if you decline them all you should finally get to the actual software installer.
I am using this software at the moment even though the horribly sneaky way they tried to get me to accept the unwanted software did not fill me with confidence. I will be checking my PC to see if there is anything else suspect going on and report here if I come across anything devious looking.
