I would like to record videos from some games I am playing. I tried Fraps, but it had problems sometimes with recording audio. To be more precise, it was missing sometimes. I need software which would record such video without any limitations in time. What I definitely don´t want to have are some annoying watermarks. It doesn't matter if software is free, it just needs to meet the requirements mentioned above.
Why are everyone answering the duplicate, ffs?– NakilonJun 1, 2022 at 18:59
Does this answer your question? A free, lightweight but quality video capture software for Windows?– NakilonJun 1, 2022 at 19:00
@Nakilon I need it for Windows 7, not 8.1.– user80078Jun 10, 2022 at 12:40
I would recommend:
- OBS Studio: https://obsproject.com/
- VLC, how to do it: https://www.wikihow.com/Screen-Capture-to-File-Using-VLC
- ScreenToGif https://www.screentogif.com/ -it is also possible to install some plugins for video formats.
One can use TechSmith Camtasia:
- Windows 7 (and >7)
- plenty of features
- high-quality recording
I've used it to record video games.
"non-free" But there seems to bee a free version as well, or what that Free download mean?– convertFeb 7 at 20:34

2Note that Nvidia Shadowplay works through Geforce Experience and a supported dedicated Nvidia GPU, which is basically any GTX or RTX GPU since the 600 series (but not the mobile GT versions).– NzallMay 29, 2022 at 20:29
If I like 2 out of your 5 suggestions, should I upvote 0.4 or downvote 0.6? Please don't suggest multiple tools in one answer. Also, please provide details on how each tool solves the problem and meets the requirements. Jan 11 at 18:47
Bandicam does not list Windows 7 as a valid OS. Jan 11 at 18:50
Nvidia Shadowplay does not list Windows 7 as a valid OS. 10 and 11 only Jan 11 at 18:52
1@Thomas Weller It saies for Вandicam Screen Recorder "Windows 10, 11 compatible", but that doesn´t automatically mean that Windows 7 is not suported. I read somewhere it even still suports XP.– convertJan 11 at 19:13
VSDC Video Editor has Screen Recorder function to record video. I have to admit that it's not the best solution, but the other 2 solutions that I would prefer to this one count as spam here.
1"it's not the best solution" - Why is it not the "best" solution? Does it meet the requirements mentioned above? "the other 2 solutions that I would prefer to this one count as spam here" - What do you mean? What "other 2 solutions"?– MrWhiteFeb 7 at 14:17
