AmaRecCo is a simple tool that allows you to capture any section on the screen to a video file. For instance, you can use it to create video tutorials and publish them to YouTube or share them with a friend.
This is a portable piece of kit, so installing AmaRecCo is not necessary. In other words, you can simply drop the program files to any location on the hard drive and run the executable directly.
Alternatively, you can save AmaRecCo to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, and run it on any computer. Thus, the app is kept in your pocket whenever you're on the move.
What's more important is that the utility does not work with Registry entries and does not leave files behind after removing it.
The interface of the program is made from two windows - one for configuring settings and one for the actual recording session; this latter window can be moved to any position on the screen. Plus, you can make AmaRecCo record an active window or the full screen, as well as take snapshots.
During the recording session, you can view the current CPU level, recording time and current file size. All videos are automatically saved to the same location as the program files, and they have the AVI format.
However, you can make some adjustments from the Config menu. For instance, you can change the default output directory, set the region size, insert a timestamp into the video, include the mouse cursor and make the app automatically open the target folder when the recording is stopped.
The video recording tool is low-demanding when it comes to system resources consumption, so it does not put a strain on the computer's performance. It has a good response time, and the resulted clips run smoothly. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the app did not hang or crash. Although some improvements are welcomed in the interface department, since it's not very well put together, AmaRecCo should please the entire audience.
