Editors' Review

by   / September 10, 2012

HyperCam 2 is a free software program that gives you a way to capture your screen in AVI video, showing cursor movement and every task accomplished on your desktop.

The interface is a little advanced for a novice computer user. Its overall look is a little crowded and therefore not as easy to navigate as we would hope. Its basic functions are at least easy to use, though it produced video of variable quality. We tested how it would function with a YouTube video capture and Select Window resulted in a delayed and out-of-sync recording. Select Region had good quality, but both options had very poor volume level. There are certain features, such as in the AVI File options, that are meant for more advanced users, which again doesn't make this a good choice for novice users.

We experienced a glitch while trying to install this program and had to restart the installation process to get it to work. There was also a toolbar installation option during the process, which was set up to make it easy to accidentally install it. Fortunately, uninstalling HyperCam 2 is easier than installing it. While it seems like a stable program, there are too many downsides to it for us to recommend it to anyone, even a more advanced user.
