Editors' Review


As screencasting software gets better and easier to use, people have found more and more uses for recording and sharing live video from their Mac's screen--from hands-on tech support to online gaming braggadocio. Screenium has long been one of the best options for Mac users who want to record video and audio captured from their desktops, and the jump to 2.0 has made the app even better.

Screenium can help you record full-screen, or in a single window or prescribed area, and the app captures anything and everything -- including streaming video, microphone audio commentary, picture-in-picture of your iSight or other camera, and a virtually unlimited number of video sources. The best improvement in the updated Screenium is an integrated, multitrack video and audio editor, so you don't need to rely on a separate editor or iMovie to clean up and organize your screencasts. Screenium also makes it easy to export your finished product (in any format supported by QuickTime), and Screenium add lots of cool extras, like options that let viewers know what's happening with your mouse clicks while you're narrating the onscreen action.

With its easy interface and copious capabilities, Screenium is still one of the best values out there for screencasting software.

"Frustrating to use"

December 10, 2014  |  By jlhost

 |  Version: Screenium 2.1.8


Records screens fine


The hot key for pause doesn't work, and you need to right click and find "stop" or "pause" in the menu to stop recording. The support is almost non-existent. There is a pdf user guide, but they don't even address how to use the editing part of the software. It's crashed a few times and I've had to restart it because it was glitchy several times too. And the trial versions with the "watermark" features a logo that bounces around the screen, getting in the way of the video. Completely unusable.


I'm sorry I bought this. I'm frustrated and unhappy with the product. I am glad I have Adobe Premiere Pro to edit with, at least.
