Which One Did We Choose As The Best Free Screen Recorder?

There are many reasons why downloading a free screen recorder can be beneficial to you. If you own a website, screen recorders are a fantastic way to show your visitors what you are talking about.

Things that may be difficult to show in just pictures can easily be shown in a video.

And with sites like Google Video, YouTube, and MySpace receiving massive amounts of traffic. There isn't a better time to make a video.

So what is there to look for in a screen recorder?

Most of them allow you to do three things...

  • Capture the entire screen
  • Capture a selected area
  • Capture a specific window
  • Despite the fact that most of these programs all do the same thing, some of them make things way to complicated!

    If you are like us, you like downloading things that get the job done without all of the confusion.

    So which one is our favorite?

    After downloading all of the most popular free screen recorders, CamStudio was our personal favorite. You hit record and it records your screen at a very high quality. It also saves it in .AVI format which is our preferred choice.

    *Note* DO NOT purchase CamStudio anywhere. It can be downloaded at a number of sites for free. We downloaded our version from BrotherSoft.
