Webcam Screen Recorder is intended to capture whatever happens on your computer screen. Despite its name, Webcam Screen Recorder cannot record video from a webcam, which is supported by other similar software. It allows selecting all the screen or just a part of it. In addition, the tool can automatically identify the borders of the selected window or follow the mouse pointer. Besides, it is very convenient when you are creating some kind of narration, such as a software presentation or a tutorial, that the program can also record audio from the microphone or the system’s card.

One thing I like about this software is that it has a very straightforward interface, without any unnecessary adornments. A set of self-explicable buttons allow you to control the recording process. When capturing video from the screen, the tool does not interfere with the rest of the windows because it hides in the System Tray. Once you have finished, you can stop the recording directly from there or using a hotkey combination. Then, it is possible to save the footage in any of two popular formats, WMV and AVI. Moreover, you should not worry about excessive file sizes because the program can use video and audio compression codecs.

All in all, Webcam Screen Recorder is a lightweight and easy-to-use program that is appropriate for any kind of user. Unfortunately, it does not allow any kind of after-recording editing actions. I have to alert you that there are many products with the same purpose, and my advice is to try a few before making your choice.
