Free Webcam Recorder allows you to record video through your webcam. Likewise, it can take snapshots. Yet, it is a pity that, unlike other tools of its type, the tool cannot record audio.
The program’s interface could not be any simpler. First, you need to select the camera you will be recording from. After this initial step, you will be able to monitor your webcam’s signal from your computer screen. In spite of the fact that the functions of the tool’s buttons are extremely obvious, you can get tips on their usage from the main window itself. As a result, this product is probably the easiest to use around. However, it is a shame that it does not allow using hotkeys combinations.
Free Webcam Recorder can only export video as AVI and photos as JPG. What is worse, it does not allow to customize specific output parameters as quality and resolution. It is true, though, that the resulting files are quite small and have a good quality.
If you are looking for a simple tool that allows you to capture video and take snapshots with a minimal effort, Free Webcam Recorder can be the right product for you; but, unfortunately, you should go on looking if you need to do more than that. In fact, the list of the things this tool cannot do is far longer than that of its features. For instance, it cannot stream video over a network or connect to a remote camera. Neither can this program upload footage or pictures to the cloud.
