Webcam Video Capture can record video directly from your screen. The tool has a neat and compact interface that anyone can use without any difficulty whatsoever. It allows recording the whole screen as well as the selected window or a specific region. Moreover, it can be set to capture the mouse pointer.
The program hides in the System Tray and starts recording automatically after you select the desired screen area. Then, it can be stopped from there or by using a customized hotkey combination. Besides, it is possible to record audio, such as a narration from the microphone or any other kind of audio from the sound card. The tool supports two video formats, WMV and AVI. Luckily, it allows video and audio compression and, in this regard, it lets you pick the desired codec.
Unfortunately, this tool is not as sophisticated as other similar programs. In fact, it is possible to make quite an extensive list of all the things you cannot do with it. For example, it cannot record gameplay properly. Neither does it allow basic editing operations, like trimming or cropping. In addition, applying any type of effects is not supported.
All in all, Webcam Video Capture has the main advantage of being very easy to use. It may come in handy when you are creating software demonstrations as well as tutorials. The product is free to try and has a very reasonable price.
