Hiya,

I want to record some tutorials using something like screen record but I have a windows laptop. I have been recommended Camtasia, but that seems a bit pricey for the half a dozen times I would actually use it.

Any suggestions as to what I could use instead?

Thanks :)

I use Bandicam but the trial version is rather limited, however paid licences are very reasonably priced, depending on what you think 'reasonable' is. (We've got it licensed on three PCs in the house.)

The full version is $39, whatever that works out to in real money.

Holy shitballs Camtasia is £249! Maybe give Bandicam a go and see if you like it? If you decide to license it you just apply the licence code to the already installed trial version.

I've used ActivePresenter in the past, but the free version has watermarks on the output. (the paid version is $199, so not cheap either)

OBS (Open Broadcast software) is free and works well. It's designed for streaming but works for recording too

Another vote for OBS here; it’s what I use.

Thanks guys, I'll try OBS, and if not I'll give Bandicam a go. :)

Isn't it built in to Windows 10? Something to do with Xbox?

I did a search but it just directed me to the web page to download it. So apparently not. :shrug:

It probably comes with the optional games stuff.

It is pretty basic, but it records the screen, and if that's all you need to do...

Well it would be useful if it recorded me speaking too - but essential.

I'm going to have a go with what I've downloaded loaded anyway thank you. It looks straight forward enough (famous last words...).

You should have asked, we use something at work, but I don't actually use it, so can't remember what it is.

This could have all been avoided if GJ would have bought Bandicam but now everything is ruined.

Yes. That's why Grim... didn't quote anything to do with OBS.

Buy a Mac and then you can use Quicktime to record the screen (or a portion of)

Or strap your phone to your forehead while it's recording video

In fairness, the way he worded it made it sound like he was talking about OBS. Directly after a post mentioning OBS he said, "Isn't it built in to Windows 10? Something to do with Xbox?" which reads very much like the 'it' being referred to is OBS.

And then Jazzy responded to it. I was just trying to point out the misunderstanding, albeit facetiously.
