Long did I look for a program to make instant shots of live videos from a webcam. Fortunately this Any Video Recorder showed up. And it does exactly what I want it to do: recording videoshots for sharing in social media. Quick and easy.
Excellent free software. Thanks!
There are a few recorders out there that will do what this does, and better without the sound lag or even video munch you can get from this app. After using 5 screen recorders, this was the laggiest of all, skipping in higher quality video, not real good.
I have the AMD Radeon HD 6900 g-card which is flawless in any other scenario, plus quad core phenom, ddr3, I have no lag issues with anything.
That said, this needs some improvement.
This video recorder looks great! However, there is a 3 to 5 second delay in audio. Which kind of sucks when you are recording movies.
I have two applications for a video recorder: preparing tutorials and recording sessions of join.me which we use for training sessions.
The first shortcoming is that the cursor isn't recorded. I can understand why, but it ought to be an option; without it the program is useless for tutorials
The second shortcoming regards sound,.It records sounds coming down from the internet nicely, but for tutorials I need it to record from a mike. I monkeyed around for some time using the windows 7 sound settings and found it's device but I couldn't find any way to get sound to it. One panel came up saying it wanted a mike in a jack in the back of the machine, so I put one in there with no luck.
Neither of these areas were mentioned in the help section.
Other than these items the program is really neat. Recording in MP4 is a big plus, and defining the areas of interest on the desktop is a big plus too. One screen that says to "record now" leads to another which works with defining the area to be recorded, and only then does a button click result in recording. The first one should be "Prepare to record" or something like that.
It looks like the program is still in development,and I anticipate the issues I've mentioned above will be taken care of. Since somewhere along the installation line it referred to "evaluation something" I suspect it will go for a price when sufficiently mature. If the issues I mention above are fixed and the price is reasonable I'd be a customer.
Excellent software, small and does what it's supposed to. I can see me using this often to capture shot loops of video. Very handy piece of software!
