CNET Editors' review
LiteCam records video of onscreen activity that you can use in presentations, lessons, manuals, e-greetings, archiving...anything that you can improve with video clips. It not only records video, screenshots, and Webcams but also game activity. It can record and insert picture-in-picture video, so you can record your victories and post the clips online with embedded video of yourself while playing, or insert instructions and comments to create educational and training videos. LiteCam also offers Draw-on-Screen, customizable opacity, and file conversion capabilities. LiteCam's Evaluation release is free to try for 30 days, though it places a watermark on output.
LiteCam's installer displayed our account name and our download's Evaluation status. The registration screen required something in the Company field to activate the Next button. We typed in "x," which was sufficient. LiteCam's Start Menu folder contains four shortcuts: LiteCam, LiteCam Info, LiteCam Website, and Uninstall LiteCam. LiteCam's user interface takes its visual and functional clues from Office, especially with its Ribbon-style toolbar, though instead of a Start button, LiteCam sports a series of quick-access icons on the left end of the Title Bar, with the same commands duplicated in the File Menu and a sidebar: Record Video, Record Screen, Record Game, Record Webcam, and Convert Video File.
The Ribbon-style toolbar offers some advantages; for example, the Home tab contains a set of player controls under Record/Play and a Recording Mode section that lets users select their recording window with a click from Rectangle, Window, Program, Full Screen, and Recording Preview. Clicking one of the Record buttons alters the Home tab's controls to just those feature needs. Each recording choice also displays controls and settings specific to each one in the main window. Under Record Game, we could set Audio Format and Device, Frames per Second, Location, and other options.
Clicking Record brought us dialogs for selecting output format and other options, plus one warning us about the Evaluation watermark. But the program minimized itself, leaving behind an ultrasimple box in the notification area containing Stop and Pause buttons and a neat little Drawing tool. The watermark doesn't obscure LiteCam's quality or versatility, and the full version is worth the cost.

The menu is easy to Navigate with a quick-bar to the most commonly used features with everything else conveniently stored under one menu, laid out in a functional grid formation.
There is nothing complicated about this software, but that does not mean that it does not include any advanced features, they are all there, but easy to find and use - you won't find any perplexity here!
The best feature in liteCam HD is the game recording - If you are a video game blogger you will love this! When you are in game recording mode all you have to do is select the game you want to record. Once in the game just hit 'CTRL & F8' to record and once you are done hit ' CTRL & F10' to finish and save.

The only downside to the software is that the only output for the initial video is AVI, however to counter this RSupport have added a converter, which is conveniently built into the software, allowing you to format your files for different devices, including formats that are compatible with iOS and Android smartphones.
There is also an option for audio only recording, making it a great Podcast recording software, especially as it will record skype conversations....
There support is also to be applauded if you have any problems at all with the software, like video or sound quality not being quite to your liking, send them an email and they will help you get the most out of your computer and the software.

"I have experienced nothing but joy using liteCam HD!"
Version: LiteCam HD 22.214.171.124
The pros of liteCam include getting to try it first for free! Once you do there are no disappointments as far as what is advertised and what you get. There is also the .wmv and .mp4 video formats you can quickly convert the .avi to before even shutting down the software! This saves time as well as software resources. There are so many tools I cannot list them all!
None so far!
It is my opinion that I will never need another software that may be similar to liteCam. It does what it is supposed to do and delivers more with each additional update!
