I need to find a Windows program that allows to record both an area of the screen and video from my webcam (preferably a small, resizable window I can place at the bottom of that area).

The exact same functionality is provided by Vokoscreen on Linux.

I'd go with Open Broadcaster Software. It can use both, screen and webcam as a source and even pictures or text.

Here it is, a screenshot of the scene configuration with a monitor and a webcam as source (extra scary).

OBS Screenshot

The usability could probably be improved. Consider some time to get familiar with it and try it intensively before recording or streaming important videos.

There are at least 3 ways of adding things to a scene. To get started, I recommend:

  1. start the preview
  2. right click into the preview
  3. Choose add > something

You can then click on an item and resize it or right click and change the properties.

  • thank you! This was exactly what I was looking for.

  • Unfortunately OBS didn't work on my laptop, but I'll give it a try on my desktop.
