Windows 10: suggestions for a desktop video & sound capture program
You will have a folder with 2 shortcuts in it. One is the encoder the other is the screencapture program. The screencapture has a red dot on it. Like this
When it opens the controls will look like this bar The cog wheel is for the settings, if you push the red dot it will give you a box to select the part of the screen to capture. Once you do that, you will have the recording controls. Press the red record button and it will do a countdown from 3 and start recording whatever is on your screen. Audio is set in the settings.
When you finish recording click the square in the middle of the control and it will start. You can then send it to the encoder where you can edit, set the recording quality and encode it into whatever format you want.
It is a very good program once you figure it out, but is pretty easy. When installing it will ask for a key. Just press continue, you do not need a key. There is no watermark or restrictions on it.
Thanks, will definitely give this a go....
Another solution is to do it via Hardware-- you'll need two bits of kit
1) Hardware capture device
2) HDMI splitter (cheap Chinese ones are best as they strip off any DRM - up to Full HD 1080p resolution on the output pass thru -- nobody has yet managed 4K HDMI splitter to pass thru without problems - but somebody will soon enough I suspect).
While this is obviously more expensive than the freebie it's infinitely more flexible. For example I capture SKY Q HD TV, AMAZON stuff as well etc so I can watch later.
Most of these devices also can capture directly to an SD card or external USB device so you can get HQ streams whatever the resolution of your laptop / computer.
Might be overkill for what you need but I've found this really useful - especially as things like Amazon don't normally allow to save to PC -- funnily enough Android slabs and phones are allowed.
Video format is usually in m2ts which is easily converted to mkv/mp4 etc and in any case W10 movie player plays it with no prob. PLEX will also stream it.
So what you'll need is from the computer--->HDMI splitter --> Capture device --USB back to computer. Start the capture program on PC and you can monitor in real time what you are capturing.
You won't get feedback error since the captured video is entered via the USB device.
Thanks, but would be overkill, as only need for a few days hopefully
thanks formthe advice though

I am not too sure if this the correct sub-forum to post this in.
I'm looking for more programs that are 'MUST HAVE' for Windows, I currently use CCleaner and Driver Booster,
