Preferred Solution: The best screen recording program - Which one?

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.)

Hello there!
I chatted with a Microsoft technician and he referred me to this forum.
I would like to download the same screen recording program as Microsoft use to record the tutorials on the Windows website (if you have no idea what they use, please suggest another program (but let me know if Microsoft are using it or not)).
Here's one of the videos: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/help/videos/personalizing-your-pc#tab=newto
Please c/p this link, I'm not able to post links until my account is verified.
Also, how can the screen recording program in the video be invisible? There are no running programs in the taskbar.

I don't know if I posted this in the right forum category.

Thanks

i cant seem to get above 13fps with any screen capture program or codec. i can have absoultly nothing running, except for windows, and set a program such as camtasia to 640x480 and i wont get above 13fps.

ive eliminated any interfering programs as the issue(nothing but stock windows and hp coolsense)

ive already ran a virus scan, in my case a full boot time scan with avast

ive tried multiple programs with several different codecs, including xvid.

all my drivers are at there latest

as for hardware, i have an old mid end laptop from 2006(with identical software/os) that can get 30fps easy on a 640x480 capture resolution, so why do i have issues on an even faster computer.

am i missing anything obvious? because at this point i am stuck.

Can you list the specs of the old laptop? also, screen capturing is a heavy program, and given your specs, 13-20 fps might be fine. Did you perhaps try another program, like FRAPS ? or bandicam?

So i'm thinking of making video clips or tutorials for games using a good software. I'd like it if its free, or considerably cheap. I've tried Fraps but the files were a little big and it slowed my computer down very low (though I still have it to record FPS). I've tried Growler Guncam and it didn't work with my computer (the "sound" and "gmp, jpg, etc" folders were hidden). I was thinking of getting Camtasia or CamStudio, but my friends said it is not good for gaming.

Okay, so I use Recordpad version 4.18 for some recording work I do with my cousin, we chose the program because it writes the sound file as it's recording (We tried Audacity before which doesn't do that, it was a pain to work with), and it also has a setting that stops the current recording and makes a new one after a set time (2 hours in our case).

Now the only problem is there's about a 1.8 second delay between the recording stopping and the new one starting up, so if we're saying something at that point it'll get partially cut off. I don't know if this is because of recordpad or because of the computer, so I thought I'd ask.

Do any versions of recordpad have a more acceptable delay between recordings, or no delay. Or would anyone be able to recommend me a sound recorder that has the same feature with a better delay?

A:Need a sound recording program suggestion

I don't use that software (I have a recording studio using Sonar X3) but I would suspect the delay is the time between the program finalizing the first recording and initializing for the next recording period.

From what I see of the program it is probably the best for your situation, since you don't like Audacity. Other recording studio programs, such as my Sonar or any other will work the same as Audacity.

Hey guys, just thought I'd share this with ya!

I found a great program called MP3myMP3 (CNET Review here: MP3 My MP3 Recorder - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com) that records sounds that your PC makes.
In other words, the sound that YOU hear from it.
E.G. If you wanted to record an error sound that Windows Makes (I know that they're in C: Somewhere this is just an example) you'd just press record and then play the sound and press stop. Simple.

Just thought I'd share as it came in handy for me.

I have an old disk for Roxio Inc.'s 'CD Recording Software'. It's pretty plain, in a paper case and everything...Anyway, I installed it on my Toshiba Satellite A205-S5831 (although I doubt that will be any use to anyone). My laptop is running Vista.After installing it, I started thinking 'Oh... well, I don't really need this', so I did the senseable thing and uninstalled it. The next reset I got this.In fact, I got this twice in a row. Every restart. Now, I notoriously click 'please do not remove' to any driver or file that may be a shared file, so I figured, hey, these drivers must be running without the program... so I went in and reinstalled the program, restarted, and uninstalling it, clicking 'No to All' for the shared driver thing.The first couple resets I was fine, but here the thing is again! I don't understand why it'd still be doing this.I searched through RegEdit for 'Roxio' and 'CD Recording Software' and got no hits. I checked the MSConfig and can't find anything that would relate to the program. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

Hello there!
I like to record videos for World of Warcraft Events and turning them into some nice basic videos for the attendees to watch. I use Fraps to record and Windows Movie Maker to edit (I know, shame on me).

Recently, black brackets has started to appear on the sides of my recordings, when I put them into Movie Maker, this sadly ruins the recordings for me, due to some of the effects I put on them.
I recently changed from my Laptop screen to a monitor (Medion - MD 30159) 16 units wide and 9 units tall. Very old monitor.
I have tried downloading different movie editing programs, and another recording program and nothing has removed the brackets. According to an online guide I found, then I should be able to remove them by clicking from standard to wide, in the Windows Movie Maker program, but this only moved the brackets from the top and bottom of the screen, to the sides.
Could the problem for this be that my old monitor's proportions does not fit with the recording/editing programs?
Would it help me if I got a new monitor with other proportions?
Is there any possible way that I can remove the brackets of my current recordings? As I would hate to loose them (In another editing program? Settings in windows? Anything!)
- I use Windows 10 on a Lenovo Notebook (I think)

Thank you for taking your time to read this.

Depending on the software used, it will either record using the desktop resolution or give you the option to choose your own resolution. If you are getting black bars, you are not recording the desktop resolution.

For best results and clarity, you should be using the screens native resolution in Windows and your games. In this case, that appears to be 1440 x 900.

A:Screen recording DOS VM?

I suggest changing the MS-Dos window to a larger font size, and leave the window 'windowed'. Switching to full-screen MS-Dos causes the video driver to actually switch down to a plain VGA mode which is also character-based resolution rather than pixel-based.

If you click on the upper-left corner of the MS-Dos session, select 'properties' and pick a Lucida Console font -- maybe 20 points or higher. This should make your screen recordings readable

Hey all,

I've been spending the past week evaluating screen recording applications for my company's training dept.

So far my favorite is Camtasia by Techsmith.com for features, price, and ease of use.
($299 or less depending on number of licenses ordered)

Are there any other good ones I should try out?

It needs to be able to do AVI, WMV, SWF formats, with quiz/survey ability and have decent features for editing the recorded video.

We would probably need 5-10 licenses and not want to go over $250 per license.

Thanks for the info. JP
