    Please add ScreenVirtuoso PRO to your review.

  2. CamStudio is perfectly fine for a free screen recording app 😉

  3. TerDale

    And why not mentioning “Windows 7”-provided PSR?

  4. Juan Figueroa

    Maybe because video is not recorded, just screen captures.

  5. 4pointscoaching

    there is also another great screen recording software – Ezvid Free Screen Recorder for Windows

    hope you can add it to the list. im loving it so far 😀

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

  7. Sally

    Im Gonna Try This!

  8. Amy

    I have tried Ezcid, sucks. Apowersoft Online Screen Recorder is much better to use. Guys you can use it here for free. Great Supply~

  9. YaktaAnderson

    Screenpresso makes it better.

  10. 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.

  11. Obidjon

    it is not FREE

  12. 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

  13. Ryan Strobach

    I’ve tried EZVid. It will not record both types of audio, which sucks…

    While GoMeetNow is a full-featured web conferencing solution, it allows you to record your screen or an individual application. The trial allows you to have 40 minute meetings. The paid service is $12.95/month.



  16. .

    Neplex really wants you to purchase it. It’s $50 if you buy right away, $70 if you buy it later ! Talk about high-pressure sales !

    Jing is ok, but -if you want to use it- you MUST join some photo collection site. Sheesh !

    There is some misunderstanding here, this post talks about a free of cost software Nepflex and does not cover any paid software.

    Good to know these screen recording tools and thanks for the sharing. I’d also recommend Acethinker Screen Recorder which I have been using for many years. It is a free online tool that lets you record your screen right from the browser. You don’t have to install any additional plug-ins or add-ons. You may add it to the list as well.
