Discuss free screen recording software for Windows. Preferably stuff that's relatively unknown and isn't on the first page of Google's search results, since they're all shit.
>Camstudio is completely broken when you try to manually select a region, performs like shit
>http://chehraz.ir/projects/screenrecorder/ is exactly the kind of program I'm looking for, but requires .Net framework 2.0. and only records to Avi
>Screen Video Recorder by DVD Video Soft is same as above
>Bandicam is excellent but has a watermark unless you register it
>Everything else I've found is web 2.0 faggot tier or bloatware.
>Best found so far is Srecorder but it has literally no options except selecting a region to record to MP4 and literally no other information.
Any other stuff you guys know about?
>Awful software desu senpai. Bloated, requires you to edit shit in their little editor, multiple steps just to start recording, etc.
Sharex is pretty gewd
but you could've found this shit on the wiki you fucking plebe
I am actually completely blown away by just how good ShareX is. It is beyond anything I could have imagined and perfect in every way, and open source on top of it all. Absolutely incredible, thank you for posting this.
This thing shows up nowhere on search engines, and that's a huge shame. The YouTube videos on it only have a few hundred views.
It may be what you said but I'm pretty sure it can accomplish what you want, you just want something simpler. It's stop good for you basically. Not fair to call it shit because it does more than you expected it too.
I still use Windows Media Encoder x64 edition myself, works just fucking fine without issues. Not the easiest thing to set up - it ain't no "start the app, click a button and record" kind of thing, it's vastly more customizable than that and can do live streaming as well with a built-in server.
Again, not for the faint of heart but pretty much a Swiss Army Knife of screen capping and other tools as well.
HATERS GONNA HATE
I work at a university as the person in charge of all online education videos. We currently use Camtasia but I'm not to satisfied with anything other than the compression of their codec. Thanks for the heads up on this I will definitely be checking it out. /g/ can do good things
camtasia is shit.. not sure why but for some reason it can't do like above 20fps recording
obs and sharex can both do 60fps easily.. though you might need a decent gpu if you do fullscreen 1080p 60fps recording
Absolutely my feeling when I first discovered it two years or so ago. It's not a very good screen recorder, though.
I recommend Open Broadcaster Software (OBS). The quality is really great.
I didn't bother to read your post, though, so I don't know what you want.
Shadowplay and Dxtory. Both record on hardware level into raw video with lossless compression, almost no impast on performance. The former only works on Nvidia GPUs, the latter isn't very stable and sometimes desyncs sound or has wacky framerates.
>get told to google it like that is a good way to good software efficiently or even hardware reviews
Obs.started using it today. If your video card can handle it, you might want to use a custom buffer rate and set the max bitrate to 0. I used the stock settings and 60fps was a blurry mess whenever I can around in game(dark souls 2). Setting to 0 tells the program to go as high as it wants. Built in x264 encoding too. 6 minute video of me getting butt fucked on ng+3 and bonfire ascetic 8 Throne Watched and defender was only 242MB. Saves it as a standard .mp4 file where you want.
/g/ approved too because available on all platforms, free as in freedom (I think), and completely open source.
Use OBS, lads. Even a shitty Intel HD from 2011 can handle 60fps recording.
For some reason my system only has x264, so webm conversion comes later.
Works great on Windows and Linux!
How does that infinite loop not cause a memory leak...? I figure they would've programmed that kind of thing out of an application designed to run also on shittier OSes like one of the more poorly kerneled Linux software package distributions.
