    "Awesome Recorder"

    January 14, 2013  |   By dewey7z7

    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.
