I'm looking for software which can simultaneously record video from my computer's web cam at the same time as recording the content displayed on screen.
More Detailed Requirements
- Run on Windows 7
- Be cheap (< ~70 USD)
- Be simple (i.e. easy to learn for basic recording features at least)
- Record videos up to 3 hours in length.
- Quality is not overly important so long as it's possible to see and hear what's going on.
- The video will be published as a file; we don't need any broadcast/streaming facilities
- Basic post production video editing tools (examples below) would be useful, though not essential
- adjust audio levels in sections of the video
- cutting and splicing facilities
- ability to switch between cam, screen, and composite feeds
My specific use case: we're about to have a number of software demos for various products and would like to record these. We can then make these videos available to the end users so they can see what was said & get an idea of what the products looked like without them needing to sit through each demo (saving them time, easing the logistics of organising the demos and keeping number of people present down to avoid too many tangents). We're likely to also use this tool for some user training videos once the eventual products are selected.
So far I've found a number of potential solutions, but have no personal experience with any. Reading their sites though they claim to record from various input sources it's not clear if simultaneous input (i.e. cam & screen) recording is possible, or if there are limits on video length.
