Is there a good software to record programma's? =D

Preferred Solution: Screen recording software

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i like to record myself playing BF3, but it is very difficult to doso because of quality, fraps slows to 5fps, though i have friends with lesser riggs than mine who record crisp...

i have have been recording with afterburner, but it slows down the recording if it is interfiering with gameplay, problem, its blurry, and after bout 5 min it will drop from full 30-40 fps, whatever i set rcrd speed at, down to 5fps, the 30, then 20, then 5 again, all in a matter of several seconds, and will repeat for the duration. also the recordings colors are off ever so slightly.

if anyone knows of a recorder i may try that may fix these problems im having, id appreciate it.

Recorder and lossless codec availible here CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software and Inno codec availible here: iSCC (inno Screen Capture Codec) - Download.com. Adjust the recorder priority as well as that can help

I want screen recording software.
I need to record 60+ minutes of video.

I have Windows 10. I found it has a built in screen recorder. Which is OK.
But it records in avi (I think) and I get huge big files.
60 minutes would be under 5GB.

So, need something that records to a much smaller file format.

Free and spamware free would be great.
Else, happy to pay a small amount.

Hey all,
So I'm looking for a screen recording program that can record my games (Namely Battlefield 2 for now), I'm aware of Fraps and its' competitors, Fraps works well, problem is, I want it to record my microphone in addition to the game and the game sound.
It gives me the option to record an external sound input in addition to the game sound, but I'm using a program called Mumble along with Battlefield 2. Mumble has 13 Hotkeys to talk, 9 for specific squads, one for local chat, one for squad chat, etc. I want a game recorder to record all of those.
Is there any program which allows me to record from an external input (IE: my mic) with multiple hoykeys for activiation. (Fraps and other programs allow to just constantly record the external input, but then the game has a lot of background noise (and everything echoes))

Had a question for CPU video capture. I'm sort of a FPS gamer and I like to make videos of me playing and such. Video capture software such as Fraps and Growler is good but I have to record at a lower frame rate so it doesn't eat up all my hard-drive space. Also, when im recording with software, anytime I switch screens ( example: Switch from in-game to desktop) my recording turns different colors.

So basically here is my question, is there any stand alone hardware I can purchase for screen recording so it doesn't touch my cpu resources? Im going to purchase a seperate hard-drive soon so that will solve my HD space problem. thanks in advance

Recently someone illegally installed the zdsoft.com screen recording software on my laptop. I have contacted the company directly, however their support department is below par (their response time is lengthy).

Here are some key points that may be helpful to assist me in removing the software:

- I do not have access to the PC that originally downloaded the program from ZDsoft. Apparently there is a log key of some sort that controls the program. So I may have to remove this from my PC manually from the logs/registry. The program is not detected in the install/remove programs list.

- Although I didn't realize it at the time, I experienced Internet connectivity problems during this illegal download unto my computer. The hacker offered to "assist"... immediately after that the software was installed. I'm not sure what he did.

- There are currently 2 PC's in our home. The hacker has been able to access both PC's. Although he hacked into the laptop initially. The software program seems to connect through our Internet hosting company.

- Before removing completely, please provide instructions on maintaining any logs/information that could be helpful for me in the future to prove my PC was illegally hacked into.

- Last, files/documents were remotely downloaded by the hacker. Any way to collect a detailed report of the files that were downloaded?

Thank you, in advance, for your assistance. I will wait for your response.

I would like to know if my Dell Desktop Inspiron 530 running Vista Home Premium is able to record the sound played by a video or web cam when using screen recording software. So far, I have not been able to figure this out and have tried Fraps, BSR, ScreenRecorder Gold and CamStudio. Is it possible that this model of Dell does not have the ability to record the sound other than from a microphone? Strange, it plays videos and SkyPe with no problem.

A:How do I record sound from my computer system from a screen recording software

For a lot of sound such as you want or "streaming audio" from the internet it requires that the sound system have the "System Mixer" capability (SoundBlaster calls this "what you hear").  Unfortunately, many Vista and Win 7 sound modules - all PC's not just Dell - do not have this capability.    You do have the "line in" (for stereo) and Mic (for mono) recording capability. 
To check to see if your system has the System Mixer, click on Start then Control Panel, then Hardware and Sound and finally Sound.  In the Sound panel click on the Recording Tab and if the System Mixer is listed set it as the default playback device.  If the System Mixer is not listed, RIGHT click in a blank area in the Recording Panel and then click the option to show disabled devices.  If the System Mixer was one of the disabled devices it will be displayed and you will be able to set it as default.   If the System Mixer is not one of the disabled devices you do not have this capability. 
You can look around for a non-Dell sound driver for your sound, e.g. RealTek if you have the standard integrated (on the motherboard) audio system.  However, from past posts on this forum it's iffy if you get a non-Dell sound driver to work.   Your other option is to install a PCI sound card that does have the System Mixer/What You Hear capability and is Windows 7 compatible.&nbs...

the idea is a program that constantly records, and has a button that saves a video of the last minute or so. that way, i can just play around with the software, and when a bug occurs, then i can review what i did. (i often encounter a crash, and forget exactly what i did.)

does any thing like this exist?? if so, can i get a link?

In your opinion, what is the best recording software that is compatible with Windows 7 (64 bit) ?

I have tried camstudio but it has an annoying bug.

Also tried hypercam but stops responding after every recording.

A:Best recording software?

What bug are you getting in Camstudio? I had it work fine, aside from an unrelated Mic volume problem (which I have posted in the Audio forum to hopefully find a fix for).

I tried Camtasia, which is what I used on my old XP Pro system, but I couldn't get the actual screen recording portion to launch. The editing, title creation, and audio recording portions all worked fine. Maybe the newer version fixed it, though. I was using an old Camtasia 5 copy because I was being too cheap to pay for another right now.

I am buying a new computer that comes with an LG combo DVD writer - DVD-GSA-4040B/OEM. The software that will come with it, according to the LG site is BHA recording software. Has anyone heard of this? I use Nero for Cds. I can use it for DVDs as well, I think. Should I just not bother installing the BHA software or is it required for the DVD writer to work?

Thanks very much!!!!

What I would do is install the software that comes with the drive. That way you can experiment to find out which works better. Use that, and get rid of the other later. What ever you do update the software and drivers of both programs immediately.

Problem is when i select a type of compression the video slows down and when you play it back it plays back freezing and then playing (like lagging in a game)

both slow

whats some other programs out there or whats a type of compression that takes not much cpu power ?

I am under the requirements (pentium 3 1ghz it needs pentium 4 1.4 ghz but pentium 3 were faster then the early pentiums 3 ! lol)

Well anyway you go the quality is going to be sub-par unless you have video conferencing with good connections like DSL.

Just use Sound Recorder to record the mic noise and the speaker output (the guy talking to you). Save the wave and convert to an mp3 (a program such as Audiograbber can do this for you).

hey all,

i'd like to record them into mp3 format. heres what i've got equipment wise;
2 computers with a good sound cards (1 turtle beach montego, 1 SB audigy), 1 stereo system (pretty standard stuff, it can output to; standard speak wire, "banana clips" whatever that is and standard mini jack), male to male mini jack cables.
my concept was to plug the stereo into the computer (via the M2M cables, headphone jack to microphone jack), set the levels as appropriate then hit record on whatever program i can get my hands on.

so, what free programs are out there (ones that are actually worth recommending i mean) that will record like that to mp3?
or if a better way to record comes to mind, i'd be interested in that as well. the one requirement is that it be very cheap or free, i'm doing this as a present for my parents (its their records) but i have basically no money to do it with. (maybe i could manage $10 US if i scrounge around)
