    "Not good for recording video"

    July 3, 2014  |   By MSLD

    Version: Screenpresso 1.5.1


    Nice interface, easy to navigate
    Records sound


    Video recordings are choppy and laggy
    Free version requires you to be connected to the internet


    I got this software to make some screen recordings of some visuals I am making for a project in a program that doesn't have video output capability. I have a dedicated computer which runs special, show critical programs, and I don't like to connect it to the internet because I have to turn off the firewall for the applications to interact with one another and I fear the system will be compromised. Because the free version doesn't allow you to use it without being connected to the internet, I (unfortunately) purchased the program without trying out the free version first.
    Although the website advertises that it will "capture HD video" and "Record your screen in video," when you open the box to record, a little window pops up to tell you that Screenpresso is optimized for desktop recording, not videos.
    It records natively in it's own codec (SPV1) and then requires you to download a converter (FFMPEG) which turns the file into an MP4.
    It also gives you the option of using several other system codecs.
    In my experience, every one of them was choppy and laggy, regardless of frame rate settings, etc.
    So, I can't say whether this is a good tool to show a simple desktop tutorial or make a screencast, but if you want to record your screen for a video game, a visualizer, or anything movie-like or movement intensive, this might not be the program you are looking for.
