How to record screen video quickly, easily and free
There are a few ways to show onscreen activity:
Use camera or camcorder to record what you see. This is not the best way because the video quality will be low and the result file size will be huge.
Create emulation of screen activity. This is the most time consuming way which also requires special knowledge.
The easiest and quickest way to capture screen video is using screen recording software.
Screen video recorders became more and more popular because they let easily create:
Software demonstration – screen record which shows how the program works. A picture’s worth a thousand words. A video’s worth a thousand still pictures or screenshots because it shows a real work process. Of course, you need a good description of the product you sell. Still, a good video presentation is better for convincing prospects to buy your product, because people believe what they see more that what they read.
Video tutorial – the most convenient form of learning. Video tutorial is much more comprehensible than a text tutorial. It can be delivered to users worldwide regardless of language they speak. Even when the narration is in foreign language, video instructions will give the information you want to share. Screencast is cheap and effective means of demonstrating and teaching software features.
Video report on technical issues is the easiest way to report software or system problems. It gives support team the most precise information, while the written descriptions are often not full or not correct. It also helps to show even the problems you can’t understand and describe.
Screen recorder allows to record desktop, mouse movements and clicks, add sound or voice to desktop video.
All these options are great, but what if you don’t need to use screen capture software often? Is it wise to pay for the product which will be used only once or twice? Bytescout offers a free solution – Bytescout Screen Capturing freeware.

I recently downloaded the demo version of ByteScout’s PDF text extractor. For most PDF files I tried, the software worked well. Unfortunately, for a series of PDFs central to my application, the PDF author had encoded the files in such a way that the text could not be extracted, so in the end, I couldn’t use the product. But while the ByteScout support agent and I were working through the issue, his attempts to help were simply outstanding. I never waited more than a day or so for a response to an email, and the responses were very detailed, helpful and easy to understand. He provided the kind of support that used to be the standard years ago but that you very seldom get from a vendor today. He even helped me find a workaround that let me accomplish my goals, even though it didn’t require me to purchase his product. If I ever need another product from ByteScout’s offerings, I won’t hesitate to try it based on the support I know I’ll get. — Alan Holbrook
