Anyone recommend a FREE screen recording tool

Hi, the title more or less says it all. No money to spend, but looking for a decent screen recording too that does not impose too many time related restrictions on recording.

Not looking to re-create Infinity Wars, just a good basic tool

Hi you can use jing from techsmith. It is for free and quite easy to handle.

Thanks, had a look at this. One drawback (for my personal usage), is the 5 min video limit. If I am reading the info correctly

I recently started using iSpring free cam. It has its weaknesses (only being able to save in .wmv, for example), but for my purposes, it’s pretty good.

Oh ok, how long do you want it to be?

I am thinking the max will be around 15 minutes. Still a bit off Infinity Wars, but long I know :slight_smile:

I’ve used CamStudio for a long time. I don’t think there are any limits on it. I haven’t tried it on Windows 10 though… I used to encode to xvid on a framerate of 10/s to keep the file sizes small even on large capture areas. It was a pretty solid capture tool - but it is only that really. There were no bells and whistles, and you have to take a little time to tinker around with the settings to get exactly what you want.
