Editors' Review

+

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.

"Marvelous screen recorder."

December 18, 2014  |  By dolfcasady

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0.0.4

Pros

I owe a lot to the developers of this app as this is like a life saver tool for me. The screen recorder is very simple to use and the step by step guide is very useful for the beginners.

Cons

The optional downloads include some malware and toolbar which are not very welcome.

"The best app for students and business."

December 11, 2014  |  By edgardaaber

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0.0.4

Pros

This screen recorder software is probably the best as it gives me a clear screen recorder which no other programs perform. It is suitable for my personal and professional work and compatible with my Windows version which offers error less recordings.

Cons

Use it according to your purpose and score good results.

"doesn't work, only downloads advertising"

November 14, 2014  |  By esg20851

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.1

Pros

There are NO pros to this software. It is a scam to infect your computer with advertising.

Cons

First of all, the program itself doesn't even work with Firefox 33.1 (the current version). When you click on Video Device, it doesn't let you select your computer screen or any other device. Clicking does nothing!
Second, the download forces you to say "no" to lots of programs you don't want, but they install anyway. Now I have to uninstall the program that is constantly putting intrusive video advertising on my screen (which I had declined to download).

Summary

Stay away from this program. It's a scam and a waste of your time.

"Beware of Malware"

October 31, 2014  |  By JGKthegr8

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.1

Pros

Not sure of features, I had to cancel the installation at the middle as I see my computer is getting altered by Malwares during the installation of this tool.

Cons

#1.745K size is not true. It download around 12Mb + as I execute the downloaded file.
#2.While installing, it offers several unwanted free/malwares to get installed, you had to choose to skip / cancel
#3. Still somehow it installed sweet-page.com addon which changes your all browser home pages, search engines etc etc.

Summary

Avoid downloading this..unless you are ready to spend time in cleaning up your system for several days..

"Limited audio options, adds web URL to video"

October 10, 2014  |  By XNam360

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0.0.4

Pros

It seems to work okay if you don't mind all the problems

Cons

-Adds "freerecorders.com" in blue text into the bottom right corner of your video.
-Only records the sounds picked up by your microphone; no option to record the system audio directly.
-I got poor framerate when I tried recording with the default settings. I did not mess with the options long enough to see if this can be fixed.

Summary

It works, but it's not good enough

"VIRUS! Real live thing! Not kidding!"

September 23, 2014  |  By james121219

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0

Pros

None work getting your system hijacked over....

Cons

I declined all the Adware it wanted to install, checked "no" to all the "accept conditions" boxes and it STILL installed associated adware. It would ONLY run from my administrator account.... Then I noticed I was getting all my webpages re-directed to advertizing. Went into my control panel and uninstalled all the programs it added... THEN my internet stopped working because it had my LAN using a proxy (theirs Haha :( ). I Followed the instructions in Chrome removing the proxy.. Guess What..? I can't deselect the "use proxy" button!!! Just started my virus scanner and found 6 virus threats!.. be back in a minute to see if it can fix them (........) OK.. it moved them to quarratine and is re-booting to do a boot-up scan before windows starts (fingers crossed!) .. Well I don't know what to do if this does not work. Reinstall everything??? It really dug deep into windows.
DON' EVER GET THIS.

"Spam installer, behaves like a virus"

September 17, 2014  |  By This_is_Spyware

 |  Version: Screen Recorder 1.0

Pros

None that I can see.

Cons

Installer doesn't respond to install requests without spam. Installs software anyway when the cancel/decline buttons are pressed. Why am I on download.CNET anyway? Everything here is loaded with malware.

Summary

I hate this.
