Free Movie Recorder for Your Computer Screen
TipCamp is a new screen recording software for Windows that can help you to make your desktop screen or even remote computer movies. The software is available as a free download.
TipCamp is a new screen recording software for Windows that is similar to other screencasting tools like Jing, Cametia Studios or Camstudio.
You can record a full desktop screen or just a portion of the video. The app also supports pan and zoom so that the recording area can easily follow the activities of your mouse cursor – very useful when creating a video for a small screen like iPod.
Another unique feature – it is possible to have a remote computer screen record with TipCom, provided the computer is running VNC server.
Like the Jing Project, TipCamp also offers an online space (250 MB) where after the production of your screencast videos are uploaded automatically.
While Jing and Camstudio present desktop screen recording video in SWF format, TipCamp uses Flash Video (FLV) which makes me always feel more comfortable, especially when the screencast size is more than a few hundred kilobytes.
Sites such as Blip.tv support the FLV format and therefore the quality of screencast video is preserved, because the video should not be encoded again before streaming.
