video screen capture

  dlguk 14:49 12 Feb 2011


I would like to be able to save things like tutorials, you tube videos etc. I tried a few and found NCH Debut the easiest to use but the audio is out of sync with the video.
Can anyone recommend an alternative?

Thank you.

Hi, yea I used to use Realplayer, as i I moused over a clip I would get the option of downloading it, which I used. It stopped working and i have tried d/loading it again but no joy :(

Re install it, then uninstall it using Revo Uninstaller (free version) at Advanced level. Reboot, and Re install Real Player.

I carried out your instruction to the letter, RealPlayer still won’t work as it used to. I am using the free (Basic) version.

Try My Screen Recorder. It is extremely easy to use, and creates standard AVI or Windows Media format files. It always keeps my screen recording audio/video in synchronization. You can download it here: click here. If you are mostly downloading from YouTube or web media, I suggest using Digital Media Converter Pro - click here

I'm sorry that didn't work for you. I'm afraid I don't know why, but I suggest Orbit Downloader (my other link) It's free and works well.

My Screenn Recorder "easy to use". Not to me it wasn't. In fact, I can't make head or tail of it!
I had a video playing and clicked the record button & it told me it was recording. Stopped it but no trace of the recording & no help to find it.
Tried with video full screen but then cannot get to the recorder control screen.
The video was click here
Using Firefox because since I tried Rawprawn's recommendation & then uninstalled GEDIT, video won't play in IE

Two more to try,
YouTube downloader; click here

aTube Catcher; click here
Remember to untick boxes for toolbars etc., when downloading.

Thank you all who contributed, YouTube Download, what a breeze, I didn’t expect to get such a neat program for free. I am a subscriber to CNet and get their newsletter yet didn’t think to look there (what a numpty),
Ty once again to you all even if what you suggested didn't work for me it’s good to have a go and for others to try.

I use the You Tube downloader it's good and can convert some formats, as a Firefox user i also have this addon
click here
it sits on the toolbar for convenience
