The interface is so simple that it practically resembles that of a VCR. You will find the usual Record, Pause, Stop and Play buttons, so universal now that they do not need captions anymore.
Nevertheless, this program’s operation might be somewhat tricky at the start. From the title, you may infer that this is another tool that will help you use your webcam, but it is not. In fact, it will not work unless you have proper webcam software. What Webcam Recorder really does is record from a specified screen area. Therefore, once you have understand that, you will find your way around easily. This capability will allow recording not only from webcams but from streaming video or chat clients.
Accordingly, first you set up the recording. If there is any webcam software running, the software will detect it or let you select a screen area. The rest is just pushing the red “Record” button. When you press “Stop”, the program will automatically save the recording to the disk. Additionally, there is a video editor, specifically designed to play the software’s specific video format.
