Capture your gameplay, record the desktop activity or a specific application to create tutorials, or capture video from devices such as webcams
There are various reasons why you might want to share video content with the world. Whether it is a troubleshooting or application usage tutorial, a walkthrough clip in your gameplay, or an educational or business presentation, you can turn to a recording software utility, such as CyberLink Screen Recorder.
Hiding behind a name that might be a bit minimalistic compared to the application’s capabilities, the feature set of CyberLink Screen Recorder is not limited to capturing the screen activity, as you might think. Instead, its developers aim to provide an all-in-one recording tool that also allows video editing, sharing and streaming, in the attempt to avoid having to install separate applications to carry out all these tasks.
Record the screen activity or your gaming sessions
The interface is simple and functional. To begin with, CyberLink Screen Recorder enables you to choose what to record. It can capture the desktop activity targeting either the entire screen, a custom rectangular area, or the window of a specific application. Alternatively, you can configure it to record your game session, or capture the input of a device, such as a webcam. Resolutions up to 1080p and frame rates up to 120 fps are supported.
Optionally, CyberLink Screen Recorder can also capture mouse clicks, webcam, and microphone input. In other words, you can use it to create videos that are accompanied by audio comments or background music.
Custom control hotkeys and time-limited recording
The recorder has a default set of hotkeys associated with its main functions, such as starting or stopping the recording, pausing and resuming, toggling the microphone or the webcam on or off, or taking screenshots. You can customize them from the Settings window.
It’s possible to set a time limit for the recording but, on the other hand, there are no scheduling or delayed capturing options available.
Video editing, sharing, and live streaming
CyberLink Screen Recorder also comes with an integrated video editor that enables you to enhance your footage. You can add titles and transitions, attach background music, or remove sections you don’t like.
Once your video is ready to be shown to the world, you can share it on Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Youku, or Niconico. On the other hand, bolder users can run live streaming sessions on Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook.
Stream live content, or record, edit and share videos
The goal of CyberLink Screen Recorder is to avoid having to download separate applications for recording, editing, sharing or streaming video content. Indeed, this application has it all bundled into a single package. With a few small improvements here and there, such as scheduling, delayed capturing, and extra items in the editor’s toolbox (e.g., effects, watermarking, etc.), this application can become a real asset.
