"I am most thankful for this free product; however..."

July 14, 2011  |  By ncdf001

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.24.01

Pros

Free! Free! Free!

If you don't bother with adding audio to your videos, HyperCam is for you. Otherwise, I hope you may have to upgrade to get this bug conquered.

"Works fairly well, but installs PUAs"

July 10, 2011

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.24.01

Pros

Works fairly well, but the default encoder settings result in huge AVI files. It is better to use a different codec.

Cons

My chief complaint is that this program installs Potentially Unwanted Applications (browser toolbars) and changes the home page of all browsers to point to somoto.com.

Summary

The installer requests internet access through a firewall. After installation, the program itself requests internet access on startup. Uninstalling the toolbar via Add/Remove Programs requires a computer restart in order to complete, implying that some sort of kernel level hooking is present which is probably used to track the user's internet activities. In short, THIS PROGRAM IS SPYWARE which is thinly wrapped into a supposedly "useful" and "free" screen capture utility.

"Terrible spyware product"

July 01, 2011  |  By VegeanceS

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.24.01

Pros

Works as advertised though.

Cons

Spyware. Nothing less. Nothing more.

Summary

After noticing that it subtly redirected my Firefox to somoto.com crap ****** website engine, even though I unchecked the INSTALL SPYWARE TOOLBAR option; I decided to uninstall it altogether. You can of course just uninstall the toolbar but yeah ..

"DO NOT DOWNLOAD! SPYWARE!"

June 19, 2011  |  By scheissypoo

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.24.01

Pros

Recording works. Great, except...

Cons

SPYWARE! I anticipate it will take me hours if not days to clean the spyware off my computer now. I cannot use Internet Explorer at all. Even when I directly type a url into the address bar, "bigseekpro" redirects me.

Summary

Clearly, the creator's of HyperCam decided to cash in and bundle their product with some internet mafia's spyware. Great, a free screen recorder! But it's like a free Ferrari with a bomb installed on the ignition. There might have been an "opt-out" checkbox that I needed to uncheck, but I don't think it's fair to blow up someone's computer because they forgot to uncheck a box. People should spend a long time in jail for this. When you waste 10's of thousands of people's time, you should go to jail.
Anyway, don't download this crap now. Wait until they release a version without the spyware or download something else. There's is no telling what kind of damage they are willing to do to you.

"It's awesome :D"

June 09, 2011  |  By JustinQueefer

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.24.01

Pros

It's good to use. It has smooth recording. It's really a simple program so it's easy to use and too complicated.

Cons

It could make my computer lagg a bit.

Summary

I would recommend this the most out of all the other recording programs.
But of course that's just in my opinion.

"Used to be a great software"

June 08, 2011  |  By birdtech345

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.24.01

Pros

It does exactly as it says in the description, albiet quite laggy.

Cons

The program decided to hijack my browser, despite me opting out of it.

Summary

I strongly suggest not using this program, as it basically installs spyware. There are other viable alternatives programs out there.
