General Information

CamStudio is an Audio/Video recording application designed for recording what is on the desktop. CamStudio is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files; using its built-in SWF Producer it can even turn AVI files into bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs). CamStudio is a versatile and easy-to-use multimedia tool for students interested in creating digital media from their personal computer.

  • As of beginning of 2015 CamStudio installation is still distributing a malicious software, though the prior uninfected installers can be obtained from SourceForge.

Frequently Asked Questions  (FAQs)

After I've minimized CamStudio, I am unable to find it in the taskbar.  How can I restore CamStudio?
Starting from Version 1.2, CamStudio is minimized to the system tray instead of the taskbar. To Restore CamStudio, double-click CamStudio's icon in the system tray.

Can I use the AVI files recorded with CamStudio for commercial purposes?
Yes, of course. The AVI files created with CamStudio may be used for any purposes, including commercial purposes. You may sell your recorded .AVI files or charge users for products that include those AVIs.

Does CamStudio record DirectX, OpenGL applications and special windows such as the Office Assistant in MS Word?
This actually depends on your system. For most cases, CamStudio should be able to record DirectX and OpenGL programs if they are running in windowed mode rather than full-screen mode.( I successfully recorded the Office Assistant in one computer running Win Me, but could not do so in another with Win 2000 installed.)
