    Maybe because video is not recorded, just screen captures.

    Excellent choice of screen capture solutions but I think you might consider adding 1AVCapture and ScreenCamera to your list of screen recording products.

    Im Gonna Try This!

  • Amy

    I have tried Ezcid, sucks. Apowersoft Online Screen Recorder is much better to use. Guys you can use it here http://www.apowersoft.com/free-online-screen-recorder for free. Great Supply~

  • YaktaAnderson

    Screenpresso makes it better.

  • Obidjon

    I do NOT agree, EZVID is very bad program, just wasted my presious time, you can not SAVE the movie to your hard drive only to Youtube.

  • Obidjon

    it is not FREE

  • Harry Xing

    downloaded Jing and found that the blurb it offered was dishonest. Guess what ? it offers some really really “extra” stuff you didn’t expect. uninstalled immediately
