Computers have countless uses these days, and when using a PC as a teaching tool or a demonstrative one, recording the desktop activity can come in handy, so as to avoid needing to perform the same presentation over and over again. A specialized application is needed, so Webcam and Screen Recorder can be given a try.
Webcam and Screen Recorder can capture one's desktop and create a video that can be later played on a wide range of devices, since the formats (AVI or WMV) are widely supported. Users can choose the type of capture they require, as the app provides three modes: full screen, selected window or selected area.
Once can enable the software to record the audio stream coming from the device they prefer, then compress it using the audio codec that suits their needs best.
If they want to compress their video, users can choose the video codec and the frame rate, but they can also leave it in a RAW format, without any additional encoding or compression.
In order to make sure that the capture will contain only the needed desktop activity, the application can be minimized to tray once the recording is initiated, along with hiding or showing the mouse pointer.
Since Webcam and Screen Recorder is meant to be used for creating live demonstrations, some users might resort to supported application hotkeys for stopping the recording without actually accessing the application.
Overall, Webcam and Screen Recorder is a reliable tool for recording desktop actions and save it to a video format of their choice so it is worth testing its functions during the evaluation period.
