My System is pretty low end in terms of specs, but I want to record it's Screen while I work on it, mainly while using Unity.

Which is the best Screen Recording Software for the purpose

My PC Specs :
OS : Windows 10
Processor : i5-2520M
Graphics Card : None (Intel Integrated Graphics 32 MB)

  • There are many Unitys out there. Do you mean this Unity for game development? I guess that'll be hard, since Unity might use a lot of RAM already. Jan 20, 2022 at 13:57

Windows 10 comes with its own screen capture software. It's part of the 'Game Bar'. You can open it by pressing ⊞ Win+g.
Since it's part of Windows 10 by default, I imagine it being optimized, but my specs are a little better, so I can't tell for sure (besides, it still is Microsoft).

  • Unfortunately this software is not working on a hardware without advanced graphik card.

VSDC free screen recorder should be just the right program for a low end PC. My PC has almost exactly the same specs and the program still works perfectly.

You call it low? I have recorded on my old Windows XP PC with single core processor and less then 1 GB RAM. So here a list of free software solutions:

Debut Video Capture and Screen Recorder Software
Free Cam
DVDVideoSoft’s Free Screen Video Recorder
ShareX (even open source)
OBS Studio (open source and cross platform)


Something like ffmpeg that's run through CLI should be fast: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Capture/Desktop ShareX that was recommended by someone also uses ffmpeg under the hood and is more user-friendly if needed.

  • I have mentioned ShareX.
