CamStudio at a GlanceCamStudio is a compact little program with some nice features tucked away to maximize its allure. Installation is a breeze. However, when you launch CamStudio, a private product upgrade is offered that has not been verified by SourceForge. You’ll have to decide if you want to take a chance on CamStudio’s private upgrade or not. Yet, once you launch CamStudio, you’ll find several helpful features to make your screen recording journey quite enjoyable. For example, controls to record an entire screen or a portion of it, sound options, and the ability to add comments to videos and screen captures. CamStudio and its codec are released under GPL license.

CamStudio records screen and audio activity on your computer to create AVI video files and turns them into bandwidth-friendly, streaming Flash videos (SWF). CamStudio also lets you add screen captions or video annotations to your recordings through anti-aliased images, or by producing a Webcam movie of yourself (screen in screen) on your desktop. And CamStudio comes with its own lossless codec that produces crystal clear results with a much smaller filesize compared some popular codecs, like Microsoft Video 1. Additional options include cursor controls, the ability to record an entire screen or a portion of it, and selections for output quality. Best of all, CamStudio is easy to use and navigate, plus it includes a built-in Help file.

Used to be good . Now it is like the cancer in human body . I completely formated the computer!!!!!!!!!! Antiviruses can't do nothing for this cancer . Excellent alternative is OBS STUDIO .
Useless program. Chock full of adware with a very confusing installation process that makes you think you are declining the adware but it installs it anyway. The program did not work. Would not let me change region size for capture so the only choices were tiny square, full window or full screen. After recording 15 minutes of screen interactions I clicked Stop, it asked me for the filename, I entered a name, and it saved a huge mp4 and then popped up a whole bunch of error windows. I had to kill the program using pskill. Sourceforge should not be allowing this garbage on their site.
Hey SourceForge, How can you allow this garbage to remain on this site? VirusTotal shows 29 virus scanners are indicating malware, Trojans, Adware and more from reputable virus scanners like AVG, Viper, Kapersky, McAfee and Sophos. This needs to be removed from SourceForge. People DO NOT download this. You have been warned.
I have used this for many years now. The latest version is downloading virus / malware / Adware. Thankfully the antivirus utility got hold of it. Never again.
In the early days this was some great open source no nonsense software, It could of been annexed as a gift to mankind, but the project was taken over by a man filled with greed. He let anyone holding a wad of cash stuff adware, malware and viruses into the installer. Virus's so hard to remove they require the download of removal tools, yes other good people had to step in to make removal tools for us. Avoid downloading this, don't compromise your systems security by downloading after all it will be you paying with time / money to have it removed. Unless your an advanced computer user with at least a memory sandbox, I would avoid this at all costs and I did some tests, it still installs malware even if you decline the questions.
