Easy, efficient tool to record on-screen activity

- Quick way to create desktop videos
- Can capture sound and mouse events
- Support for several video formats
- Some minor problems when recording mouse events
Sometimes the best way to explain something to someone who's not very skillful with computer is showing them a video. And Free Screen to Video is one of the easiest ways to record your screen.
Free Screen to Video is a simple video utility that saves any activity on your screen to several video formats, including AVI and SWF (Flash). You have three capturing options (full screen, active window or user-selected area) plus the ability to optionally record sound and capture mouse events as well. The program's configuration settings enable you to configure several technical parameters regarding audio and video capturing.
That said, don't expect Free Screen to Video to be some sort of free, stripped-down Camtasia. This tool is meant to be very simple in usage and functionalities; it doesn't have any video editing options and the results are not perfect – especially when capturing the mouse: in my tests the cursor was always a few centimeters away from the actual mouse action!
Nevertheless, Free Screen to Video is still a handy tool to record quick desktop videos for tutorials, demos and other educational purposes.
With Free Screen to Video you'll be able to capture any on-screen activity and save it to various video formats, in a very simple way.
