A user-friendly program for capturing screenshots or recording the desktop screen, supporting various video codecs and sound recording
oCam is an intuitive software application designed to help users capture and record their desktop activity. The program provides two different modes for taking screenshots and recording videos, namely full screen or a selected area.
It sports a minimalist window which allows users to set up the entire process with just a few clicks. The video files and images are automatically saved to the specified directory. Plus, you can open the saving folder directly from the primary panel.
The video files are exported to AVI format, while the images are saved to PNG. The selected area can be manually adjusted with the use of the mouse cursor, but you can also choose from different preset sizes.
The application offers support for audio recording options as well, and you can pick the device, channel and sample rate.
Other important features worth mentioning give users the possibility of configuring the video parameters by specifying the FPS and bitrate, and including the cursor in the video recording sessions.
Hotkeys are available for a better control over the entire process and they can be reassigned. You can also choose a default saving directory and limit the recording time.
What’s more, it is possible to pick the video codecs directly from the primary panel, as the program lists the ones that are currently installed on your computer.
All things considered, oCam offers very good image and video quality and doesn’t hamper system performance. Although it doesn’t bundle many audio and video recording features, it provides a user-friendly environment for helping you capture and record your screen activity.
