Screen Recordster v1.2

Current Version: 1.2 
OS: Win 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP  
Free: as in free 

Screen Recordster v1.2 is a tool used for recording screen activity into standard AVI video files. If you move the cursor, launch a new program, type some text, click a few buttons, or select some menus -- anything that you see on your screen – Screen Recordster will be able to record and allow you to play them back later on.

You can use Screen Recordster to develop videos to demonstrate features of a new software, for creating movies used in user training, for tracking the progress of a program that executes for a long time, or for recording the sequence of steps that cause the occurrence of bugs in faulty software. Very nice tool for teachers, computer instructors, private tutors, etc.


Moving images impact our lives heavily nowadays. A changing image speaks much more than a stationary snapshot. Any one who has watched a movie understands how the power of animation can immensely enhance the process of communication. By capturing the moving action faithfully on your computer screen, Screen Recordster is essentially putting this power right onto your computer desktop.

The video files created by Screen Recordster are saved in the standard AVI (Audio Video Interleave) format, which is used pervasively in many Windows applications that support video, including MS Office. (You can effectively paste an AVI file into an Office application just like pasting text.)

This ensures maximum compatibility with other software, and you can easily edit the output with a video editor, which by the way, we are in the process of developing and will be released very soon.

Uses of Screen Recordster…

* You can create demonstrations of programs by recording the movement of the cursor, the selection of menus, the entering of text or the display of messages. These demonstrations, when shown to users, can illustrate features and usage of the program in a short period time with maximum clarity.

* Very nice tool for teachers, computer instructors, private tutors, etc.

* The recorded movies can be added to the accompanying help files of commercial software to make them more professional.

* The recorded videos, if converted to a stream-able format, can also be posted to your web sites to enliven them.

* Use the included Viewer to preview your created AVI files.
