Screen Recorder is a lightweight tool designed to help you take screen captures and videos quickly and efficiently, with just a few clicks of the mouse. There are several options included for taking a video, and you can capture high-quality video through any of them.

Pros

Recording options: Through this program, you can record video coming from a webcam, from a selected area of your screen, or a combination. With the picture-in-picture feature, you can record yourself describing what you're doing at the same time as you're demonstrating it on the screen.

Cons

Jumbled interface: This program's interface is not the most intuitive or well laid-out. It opens set to the Camera input option by default, but if you don't have one hooked up or turned on, nothing else on the interface is clickable, and you get an error message when you try to start a recording. After a little poking around, it's possible to get the app off that setting and onto another type of input; but instructions or guidance of some sort would be very helpful, especially for inexperienced users.

No Stop button: When you start a screen capture recording through this program, the main interface window is automatically minimized. But that means that you can't stop the recording without opening that window up again, which will likely interfere with whatever it was you were previously recording. You can set the window not to minimize, but then it remains on the screen and may compromise your shot as well. The addition of an independent Stop button somewhere on the screen during recording would eliminate this complication.

Bottom Line

Screen Recorder is a good, basic program for making videos of yourself or what you're doing onscreen. It doesn't have the nicest interface or a ton of other features, but it's free. So if all you want to do is quickly record, this may be a good option to check out.

"Malware :-("

September 01, 2015

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Could not find program after install

Cons

My computer was infected with spigot malware after install.
Perhaps it came from another program called AutoScreenRecorder, but it definately was installed together with one of these 2 programs.

"Malware/Bloatware"

August 30, 2015  |  By portra777

2015-08-30 17:24:44  |  By portra777

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Not very useful.

Cons

1. You must define screen parameters
2. Does not save in many formats, but only two.
3. Bloatware/Malware

Summary

This program will try to install "Chromium Browser" and "Yahoo search page." It will also try to install "PC..." I forget the name. Anyway, very intrusive program. My malware program immediately popped up when I tried to install. I used a deep uninstaller to get rid of it. All in all, not worth it. Move to something more reputable.

"Bundled with crapware and probably malware."

August 13, 2015  |  By Skybluethinking

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Might work well, but I didn't get that far. Now I have crapware to uninstall.

Cons

Just another disappointing bundle of crapware. Classic bait and switch.

Summary

Find another solution, like VLC Media Player or one of the very cheap options out there.

Pros

None. Do not install this virus-ridden junkware.

It's all bad. Do not install this virus-ridden junkware.

Summary

Avoid like the plague, unless you want to install viruses, spyware and all kinds of nasty junk. Cnet.com really should remove this.

"Full of junk and useless"

February 19, 2015  |  By garfieldgurl

2015-02-19 22:17:57  |  By garfieldgurl

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

-Able to decline to every junk software they wanted to install

Cons

-Not able to by pass their browser installation binki something.
-Every option was grayed out, so I couldn't even try the program

Summary

When clicking on Start recording (the only button on the program I could click on), I was asked to choose video and audio option. Well genius, how am I supposed to do that if all the other buttons are grayed out. I'm a little suspicious of all the 5 stars reviews this thing got. Uninstalled!
