LiteCam

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.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of LiteCam 3.8.

    "Great product, Great Customer Service"

    January 27, 2014  |   By malanb5

    Version: LiteCam 4.8.0.2

    Pros

    Works as advertised, intuitive design, easy to use, great functionality without sacrificing computer performance. Money well spent. Even more impressive than the program is the customer service--very fast response time. I emailed and got an almost immediate response that was helpful and well informed. Can't rave about this company and program enough.

    Cons

    Had a little difficulty running this program on different user accounts on the same computer.

    "liteCam - The missing link for video downloads"

    January 26, 2014  |   By cddettman

    Version: LiteCam 4.8.0.2

    Pros

    I work with an educational non-profit in South Africa, working with youngsters from highly disadvantaged backgrounds (including youth offenders in prison), and we use a lot of video materials in our classes. It's hard to overstate how glad I am to have found liteCam! It fills a crucial gap for me. There's nothing more frustrating than finding a great video clip for illustrating some important point in class, and then not being able to download it. Now, whenever that happens, I use my liteCam. It's a relatively small programme, but so effective and easy to use! The variable image size and the screenshot facilities are a real boon too.

    Cons

    It would be that much better if one could use the screenshot utility without having to run the video capture

    Pros

    Simple enough for a novice to operate; yet, sophisticated enough to create great screen shots and videos. Instructions are easy to follow.

    Cons

    None noted

    Summary

    I recommend this program to anyone new to screen copying.

    "LiteCam HD is AMAZING! And easy to use, too!"

    December 23, 2013  |   By GraysonTumult

    Version: LiteCam 4.8.0.2

    Pros

    The best thing about LiteCam HD is its simplicity of use. The recording quality is top-notch and the number of file conversion options is excellent. I have been using it to create on-line software tutorials and videos of power point presentations for my freelance business and have to say that this software is by far the best I have tried.

    Cons

    The only con I have is that when I pause during the recording, I get a "click" sound which I have to edit out during post production. No matter how lightly I press the pause, I get the extraneous noise.

    Summary

    Anyone in need of screen capture software should look no further than LiteCam HD. The recording is the highest quality and it is so simple to use, there is no learning curve needed. Just install it and away you go. Its really that easy.

    "Brilliant and extremely useful."

    December 23, 2013  |   By RGJMedic

    Version: LiteCam 4.8.0.2

    Pros

    This new version of LiteCam, the HD version allows for a more accurate screen capture, with a greater selection of features and options.

    Cons

    None found so far.

    Summary

    This new software will I expect show a few bugs over time as things change, but my experience of the support offered by the Company to date, assures me that they will meet any challenge placed in their path.

    "Use to work. Now all I get is a blank video with audio"

    December 16, 2013  |   By sblevine

    Version: LiteCam 4.8.0.2

    Pros

    when it worked it was good

    Cons

    I bought litecam 3 and used it a lot. Recently it stopped working. WHen I record all I get is a blank video with audio. Since they have no good online support, no forum, no faq, I downloaded the latest version 4, and get the same result. Obviously there must be an incompatibility with something else running on my computer but I don't have any idea what it is and since I have lots of stuff on my computer I'm not going to start deleting everything to see what the problem is.

    Summary

    Used to work no it doesn't

    "Easy to use High end video capture software!!"

    November 27, 2013  |   By Draycass

    Version: LiteCam 4.8.0.2

    Pros

    HD recording
    Record any on screen activity
    One click record
    Lots of features
    Video editing
    File conversions
    Show webcam during record
    Add title, end credit, logo
    Record mic input
    Audio extract from recordings

    Cons

    Only one output option - to AVI initially

    Summary

    If you are looking for an affordable programme that let's you record anything on your computer screen from movies, gameplay, software tutorials etc then you can't go far wrong with liteCam HD.

    With an intuitive, easy to use interface liteCamHD gives the user complete control over what and how they want to record.

    You will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of features that are available to you: video and audio options, logo addition, webcam recording, frame rate, title screen, credit screen, record location, mic recording time recordings - the list goes on!

    Key Features:
    Game recording @max 60fps / video recording @max 30fps
    Dual Sound Input
    Record skype chat/mic input for narration
    PIP webcam recording
    Direct upload to Youtube
    Video editing
    Title and credit display
    Logo display
    Easy to use menu interface

    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.

    Whilst you are recording liteCam HD will stamp your logo on the screen, as well as your webcam recording and mic narration making you look every inch the pro!

    You can edit the video and upload direct to YouTube, so if you want to keep things simple you will not need separate video editing software.

    For those of you that want to record software/game tutorials there is another great little feature, you have the option to hide or show the mouse cursor and use mouse affects on click (circles where you are clicking etc)

    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.

    If you want an easy to use recording software that offers you all the features of the high end video recording market then you can't go wrong with liteCam HD - highly recommended!!
