why do you record the computer screen?
"How to show my gameplay to my friends?", "Can I use some program to record my Webcam chat?" When you have problems of these, you may need a tool to capture your computer screen activity and save it to a video file.

Besides the case we mention above, you will need to record your computer screen in following scenarios.
Screen demos.
Training videos.
Teaching videos.
Animated tutorials.
Animated presentations.
Animated help files

Do you need a camera or camcorder to record the computer screen?

If you want to record every click of what you have been doing on computer, camera is not the only choice.
Because a camera or comcorder in front of your computer to record your screen is not practical with the following reasons:
1. It can not record the screen precisely.
2. The resulting video will be fuzzy.
3. The recording is not easy to edit.
4. The video file is too large for web sharing and transmission

Computer screen recorder is what you need.
You could use some screen software to record desktop screen to video, and save as avi,wmv,swf,flv format,which could upload to Youtube and other blog or video share website immediately.Also, the record video file size is much less that the camera.

How to record your screen with screen recorder?

To record your screen activity with Total Screen Recorder, you have 2 steps to go:

Ludovici (or anyone else), would you please submit the executable to virustotal?

This might be a legitim program but the past two topics from this member were exactly equal to this one but were pointing people to download the software from rapidshare.

If I'm mistaken my apologies for being suspicious, otherwise better safe than sorry.

Thanks.

Can we use a Freeware app instead? ;)

A few of them in no particular order (and rigorously NOT tested by yours truly)
http://camstudio.org/
http://johnbokma.com...enrecorder.html
http://www.splitmedi...-screen-capture
http://www.bobyte.com/
http://www.bobyte.co...creen/index.asp

It is of course a simple coincidence or a common act of patriotism that the domain is from China:

Registrant:
Organization : Guangzhou Shenhua Information and Technology Co., Ltd.
Name : Mowei Deng
Address : Building A, No.11,Caipin Road, GuangDong Software Science Park,
City : GuangZhou
Province/State : Guangdong
Country : CN
Postal Code : 510663

and the user promoting it's use is also from China.

I guess Rule #4 is there for a reason.

Can anyone try to fill the <_< ?

Here they seem to become ;)

recently, why google retreat from china. it says china is too sticky on its censorship policy.while it upholds freedom. so why i am here, you treat me like an intruder?

Not at all, I am personally treating you like a nice guy at his first post that missed the fact that we have a Rule against promoting Commercial/Sharerware apps on the boot-land site.

You might also want to know that we like so much Chinese people :) that an exception was made, exactly for a Chinese product/firm, as you can see here:
http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=3082
Please take your time reading here:
http://www.boot-land...?...=3082&st=10
what are the intended policies, explained in detail.

I couldn't care less about the relationships between China's Government and Google, both, each in their respective field, are big enough to need not my advice or help. :)

I am still looking for BOTH the knowledge you are sharing AND the people that judged it useful here on boot-land:

yes, i am promoting. but at the same time, i am promoting knoweledge. why some people saw it, and judged it is useful. ?

but I seem not be able to find ANYthing like that.

However I see that you have quite a lot of people writing you to tell how great is your program
http://www.totalscre...n-recorder.html
which is a good thing.

WOW! 5 (five) contented users' reports and a survey carried out via e-mail comprising 4 (four) people. :)

I always use acethinker screen grabber online to capture my laptop screen to make video tutorials, it's an online app, free and easy to use, no need to download or install anything. You might check it out.

Good :).

 

I am perplexed by the "no need to download or install anything" :dubbio:, attempting to use it I got:

Please download launcher and install it before you start recording

 

 

Personally (for the very little uses I need) I use this nowadays, just for the record:

I personally just use Fraps. But it's mostly good for recording gameplay. It saves in AVI format, and file size can get really big. The biggest advantage is that it can record fullscreen applications. If you just want to record the desktop and such, Camtasia Studio is far better.

Isn't this topic, well....way off topic? It reads like one of the advert threads the spammer known as 'The Hive' would post.

"TheHive" is a spammer only in your mind.

 

For all the other people he is one of the earliest members of the Community, member #5 for the record, and a much esteemed one.

 

He also contributed to the design of several of the logos and bootscreens used in various Winbuilder Projects, example:
http://reboot.pro/to...79-livexp-logo/

but then what do I know, I am also a spammer, according to you.

Then maybe someone should tell him to stop posting his BS advert threads. Because if you ask me, the evidence says he's a spammer, respected or not. Michael Jackson was a highly respected musician, but he was a pedophile too. The fact that he was respected doesn't change what he was.

To clear things.

REX2010 is (was) a spammer (but of the nice kind, i.e. first thing a human, to which one can talk), see (JFYI):
http://reboot.pro/to...why-a-notebook/

13 out of 15 posts are about promoting this or that tool

 

jeffcard 99.99(9)% is a spammer (very likely an automated robot), as he joined the board only to provide his suggestion by bumping a 6 (six) years old thread (and placing a link to another Commercial software site in his member profile).

 

And he joined lately a lot of boards, in all of them praising (at his first or second post) the same acethinker thingy, *like*:
http://www.pctechbyt...#comment-161274

http://en.community....3517/t/19621593

http://forum.superce...S-Devices/page2

http://www.minecraft...o-jailbreak#c12

 

And other sites:
http://www.asknguyen...e-5-screen.html

http://www.pcmag.com...phone-or-tablet

 

He is even on Reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/user/jeffcard/

 

AND he is also already on the NoForumSpam list:
https://stopforumspa...ck/47.89.40.132

 

 

Out of the 4098 (fourthousandninetyeight) posts by TheHive on this board spanning roughly 10 (ten) years , maybe there are a few that could be mistaken for spam, of course, but no, he is not a spammer (but if you are convinced of him being one, and it disturbs you so much, you should e-mail Nuno and he will surely take adequate actions).

You are(TheAntiFinder (Someone changed their nickname) hilarious. You seem to be the spammer of rumors :wheelchair: .

If you know how to use a PC then you should be able to stop popups or other things that spring up when visiting posted links. Personally haven't seen much ads,popups, or such. Try using a condom and not a plastic bag. :loleverybody: :rofle: 

 

 

Anyways! Here is a recommendation from a real old thread towards using Camstudio. Link to thread at bottom of my posts. :dubbio: :wub:
