If you are a video tutorial enthusiast and you want to record one or, on the other hand, you just want to record what happens on your desktop, Free Screen Video Recorder is a very interesting application for this purpose, because it allows us to take screenshots as well as recording everything that happens in the most popular video formats.
The perfect tool to create video tutorials
This small software application has several tools with which to capture the full screen, only part of it, or the active window. Free Screen Video Recorder takes full care of saving everything in the proper format and will show a recording icon in the system tray.
The software is really light, but despite this, it can encode in the most popular formats and use all the codecs that are installed on the computer. By default, it captures video as AVI, but among the options available, we'll be able to find Microsoft codecs, DivX, Helix, Xvid or any other formats recognized by this software.
With regard to saving screenshots, it works like any other software with this same purpose, allowing us to take a photo of the screen and save it as BMP, JPG and PNG.
