"Good for Screen/Video Capture"

April 14, 2012  |  By Glowdie

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.25.01

Pros

Very easy to use, cool pan option, perfect for school projects and YouTube videos (computer-related tutorials). Quick download and free for all.

Cons

Sound sometimes... has bad quality. Maybe my fault... yeah, maybe. Can't happen to use the Single Frame Shot in pause mode (read the complete instructions, still can't use it). If it had a zoom function, could have been better.

Summary

Recommended for people who need an easy to use screen-capture/video program without that many complicated features.

"best free video recorder you can get"

March 13, 2012  |  By theelitecommando

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.25.01

Pros

FREE ( no license required with no watermark)
best free thing you can get
ADJUSTABLE FRAMERATE
ACCEPTS EXTERNAL MICROPHONES

Cons

outdated, but who cares?

Summary

you first guy, its free, if you dont like the extras, why didnt you disable them in the setup?
PS: if you never used hyper cam, its basically a video recording snipping tool

Updated on Mar 13, 2012

i have windows 7 64 bit too!, simply plug a 3.5 mm to 3.5 mm male cable into the audio out and mic. jacks and then select external mic. and vola! (if you want to listen while recording, get a splitter and speakers)
LINK FOR CABLE http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Unlimited-AUD-1100-06-6-Feet-Stereo/dp/B000SE6IV8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331691376&sr=8-1
PS: its $1.10 USD , if you cant afford that, i'll laugh at you

"Easy install, just works, not perfect, but worth it"

March 09, 2012  |  By Himself

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.25.01

Pros

No problems working on my laptop running Windows 7. I feared a complicated setup, but there was almost none. You might want to adjust the default settings, but that's super easy.

Cons

The still captures seems a bit buggy, or maybe I didn't read the instructions. Yeah. I didn't read the instructions. You, too, will be inclined to NOT read the instructions.

Summary

If you want to capture video on your computer, you should just get this app. It works really well and is super easy. If you have problems installing or running it, like some people complained about, then uninstall and re-install and enjoy.

"Good Program - Bad Glitch"

January 23, 2012  |  By renewitsolutions

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.25.01

Pros

Super easy to manage and modify. It has really powerful options that $50 programs have. You can pick just about any record and export options you want. Spits out in avi but a highly customized avi.

Cons

The worst CON of all- The video doesn't sync up with the audio unless you degrade the screen resolution. I don't want to have to change my bit depth from 32 down to 16 every time I record. There has to be a better way. Sorry HC2, I love you, but I'm gonna keep looking.

Summary

Apparently there is a fix for the audio lag or video speed but after messing with it for two hours I still couldn't get it to work.

"Simple and effective"

January 17, 2012  |  By EnigmaHeart

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.25.01

Pros

A video capture program that is very easy to use. It has a neat feature where you can choose just one window to record from - you can even set your own dimensions.

Simple, lightweight program that works.

Cons

Some of the available options are not explained (or explained well enough), and when choosing a single window to record from, the screen will pan around as you use the mouse. It looks as though you are supposed to be able to lock it in place, however, I haven't been able to get that to work yet myself.

Summary

I like it, it does the job.

"It's okay..."

January 16, 2012  |  By spacegiant

 |  Version: HyperCam 2.25.01

Pros

Fast easy install. Sorta works. No malware that I've noticed

Cons

Awkward user interface. Terrible sound. Fair video quality.

Summary

64bit W7. No problems with download/install. Make sure to decline the toolbar and homepage offers.
Your options for capture area are 1)specify start and number of pixels in both X and Y axis, or 2)select window, upon which it jumps back to the Hypercam window, so there is a lot of juggling tabs before you can record. All manual; there is no area select by cursor. Cumbersome, antiquated process.
Records only in avi at a choppy default of 10 fps; you can change fps manually, but at 30fps the playback was in 3X fast motion (sound was at normal 1X), so you are screwed there. Playback resolution was as good as original, but a limited color palette gives it a paint-by-numbers trippy dream sequence look.
Sound (streaming, not mic) is horrible, almost muted and with very prominent background hiss.
Okay for tutorials or just playing around, but low quality recording makes it useless for the most part.
