    Version: HyperCam 2.28.01

    Pros

    Free, easy to set up.

    Cons

    records blank screen, had to add Miso so screen would stay active but everything crashed when hard drive filled up.
    It runs a lot smother on Win 8 then XP pro.

    Summary

    It could use a screen saver and monitor pkg from not shutting down. Should be able to have a timer to make sure that there is no crash

    "MALWARE! Do not install."

    June 28, 2013  |   By RolandRackham

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    None. The HyperCam software never got installed.

    Cons

    Installs junkware from SweetPacks w/o permission.
    Changes homepages w/o permission.
    Junkware can't be removed easily.

    Summary

    During installation, it offers to install a junkware applications. I pressed "do not accept" and it installed the junkware, changed my homepage to sweet packs on both Firefox and IE (Chrome was spared because I use a portable version). The uninstall process is semi-successful but I still wasted half an hour going into the various programs and resetting homepages, and fixing the registry.

    Note to C/Net: This is starting to happen a lot lately with Download.com programs. Quality Control has gone down the drain. Odd since this such an easy problem to fix.

    "DO NOT INSTALL! BUNDLED WITH MALWARE!"

    May 13, 2013  |   By McClain142

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    None
    10characters

    Cons

    MALWARE
    10characters

    Summary

    Despite carefully clicking around the toobar "options," I still ended up with unwanted extensions added to every browser, and a malicious DLL file that thankfully my antivirus caught immediately. If you installed this version, please run antivirus and search your computer for "foodbuzz."

    PLEASE REMOVE!

    "Awesome Recorder"

    January 14, 2013  |   By dewey7z7

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Fairly easy to use. Captures just about everything & anything: youtube, webinars, streaming media, etc. Latest version 2.27 doesn't even have the watermark anymore. Great recorder for the price: free.

    Cons

    No complaints. Just make sure you untick requests to put toolbars & adware to avoid malware junk. Sometimes audio and video are out of sync, but that can be adjusted one way or the other.

    Summary

    I've used hypercam for years with no issues. However on this latest re-install ( PC reformatted to remove nasty viruses) I had no sound, just like the other comments. After searching the forums high & low, finally figured it out: my recorder level was set too low, and my speakers volume was too low. Dble click the speaker icon (by clock icon,righthand corner taskbar): Volume Control > Options > Properties. You should see radio buttons for 'Playback' and 'Recorder'. Click 'Recorder' and make sure volume bar is set adequately. If still no sound, lots of tips on the tech forums, espec. hyperionics ( hypercam) forum.

    The volume setting on your speakers affects how loud you can record. After upgrading to some good stereo speakers, I can fully control the quality and loudness of the recording via those stereo speakers. A graphic equalizer can also help fine-tune audio quality.

    "Works as well as Screencast SMRecorder or CamStudio"

    November 27, 2012  |   By Bob-0

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Has more control than Screencast-O-Matic.
    It DOES NOT install spyware or toolbars. If you are too stupid to uncheck the toolbar option plus the additional software option on the following screen then you deserve to be plagued by them.

    Cons

    Audio didn't record for my video (Dell Optiplex with Realtek audio), but neither did Screencast, SMRecorder or CamStudio so it must be my PC. Interface is not as slick as the others but effective.

    "Great for training tutorials"

    October 18, 2012  |   By darothwell

    Version: HyperCam 2.27

    Pros

    Easy to install and use.

    Cons

    May need to convert video file type to reduce size and increase compatibility. Any Video Converter is great for that purpose - mpeg4 is a good file type choice.

    Summary

    Great, free, product.
