BB FlashBack Express
BB FlashBack Express is a software application which allows you to record your screen in a user-friendly environment. It can be seamlessly handled, even by less experienced users.
The app is based on a plain and uncomplicated interface where you can record the full screen, region or window, as well as the sound and webcam footage. BB FlashBack Express may be minimized to the system tray during the recording session, so it doesn't appear in the footage.
Several configuration settings area seamlessly accessible through this app, such as selecting the sound source (microphone, PC speakers or others) and customizing the sound format (sample rate, channel mode, MP3 compression usage, quality).
In addition, you can pick the recording mode between automatic and manual. The latter option allows you to select the frames per second and quality, as well as one of the GDI, MPEG or capture driver modes.
Furthermore, you can reduce the movie file size through several methods (e.g. by switching off the Windows graphic effects), change the resolution while recording, enable keystrokes capturing, reconfigure keyboard shortcuts, and limit file sizes. But many other customization preferences are available for skilled users in the 'Options' screen.
The application has a good response time, includes help documentation, uses a moderate amount of system resources, and delivers videos with a good image and sound quality. No error dialogs have been displayed during our evaluation and BB FlashBack Express did not freeze or crash. This program can be used for recording video tutorials that you can publish on YouTube, for example.
