It sometimes actually works.
Horribly amaturish-looking interface. Does a "wizard" type setup for each recording, which would be great, except unnecessarily huge windows pop up, usually in a position on top of something I need to see during the setup. For me, this is a small annoyance because my screen resolution is set to 1024x768. I can't imagine that someone set to 800x600 (which most home users are) could find this less than irritating. The worst thing about this software is that it doesn't work about 40% of the time, and until you're done recording, you have no clue that you've recorded a BLANK SCREEN! After some experimentation I have discovered that this usually happens with relatively long recording sessions (over 30 minutes), so DON'T rely on this for security! Also, there were many files that I could not open after recording. Some were the result of the fact that I ran out of disk space and this thing is too stupid to see that coming and just crashes while recording. This is an inexcusable oversite in a supposedly "professionally" written piece of software such as this. Sometimes I did not run out of disk space, but this happened anyway. If you stop a recording, then click "Record" again to start a new recording, it will automatically use your last profile. This would certainly be nice in some situations, but if you have changed the position of the desired video on your screen, then you have to shut down Webcam Recorder completely and start over. Why not just give the user a choice? One last thing...the "watermark" that this software puts on the screen in the demo version is so big that it makes judging the quality just about impossible. Why not just a time limit, or a transluscent watermark, or God forbid, a SMALLER watermark instead of the big ugly black lettering? Every other recorder I've tried is way better than this one. I'm amazed that they are asking this price. Don't waste your time or money.
