Free Screen Video Recorder Review

Free Screen Video Recorder: capture video as avi, make screenshots
A review of Free Screen Video Recorder by Tina de Pierre

To date, Free Screen Video Recorder is probably one of the best freeware video capture applications which we have had the pleasure of testing out. This program, like a lot of the other free tools created by this developer, is actually pretty advanced and extremely handy for a freeware utility.

With Free Screen Video Recorder, you are able to create videos from the activities displayed on your monitor. You're able to make full screen video captures, select a rectangular region to capture or only capture a certain window.

The saved files from your video recording projects can be encoded in various different formats, depending on which encoders you have installed on your PC. In our case, we saved our video capture projects as Microsoft Video, but you can presumably save them as DivX or XviD files, too. Just make sure you have the correct encoders installed.

The other part of this software is still captures which do virtually the same thing as the video captures, just as BMP, JPG or PNG images.

When it comes to editing your video captures (whether they be still images or videos), you are resize them, crop them or rotate them.

In this end, this software does a lot of what commercial video capture software does, but for free. We were very impressed with the functionality and highly recommend Free Screen Video Recorder if you're needing to do anything it offers.
