User: "Video capture is not working. Clips are always played back with a black screen. Audio works. Any idea? This is my device list on Windows 10:(in Spanish)
Support: "This is likely caused by a wrong video card. You may either update the current video card driver or, use a different video card.
From your list, it seems there are two video cards installed on the PC, Intel and NVidia, which one is used? What if you switch cards?"
User: "Solved by changing the default graphic video to NVIDIA with the advance NVIDIA options.
Thank you :-)"
Another User: "I disabled the GeForce GTX 1050 card. I am using the Intel HD Graphics 630. MOVIE CAPTURE IS NOW WORKING!!!!! I like this App."
Actually, no. It depends on the power of your computer.
If you have a slow computer and you set up the video quality at 100%, and the frame rate at a maximum of 100, it may actually result in a slow, inconsistent video when you play it back.
3 things happen when you record your screen:
It captures your screen.
It processes the captured screen to data that is in a video format.
It saves the video data to a video file on your hard drive.
If any of these takes too long to process (CPU, memory, hard drive type), you will see lagging in the final video playback. In some cases, the video may not play.
When deciding the quality, there are a few things to keep in mind:
How big is the area that I'm recording on-screen?
A full HD screen of 1920x1080 pixels will have 4x the amount of data than a half-size 960x540 video.
How detailed does my video need to be?
An increase in quality may significantly increase the amount of data needed. For example, when your quality is over 90%, 1% increase in quality, the video file size may have doubled.
What is my frame rate?
An increase in your frame rate will also result in an increased amount of data.
When recording a high-quality video that spans your entire screen, the quality typically does not need to exceed 90%
and the frame rate shouldn't be more than 20 fps.
Depending on how powerful your machine is, you can increase your quality from there but always double-check the result to make sure first.
We would recommend an internal SSD to save the video, especially when a large area of the screen is recorded. The SSD speed is usually over 400m/s, an external USB v.3.0 hard drive is about 100m/s, and a USB v. 2.0 flash drive is about 20-50m/s. If the speed is too slow, it may lose the connection that too much data is backed up waiting to write to the drive.
BMP files. Although bitmap or BMP files are large and uncompressed, it takes little time to convert and process.
It is the fastest for saving to the hard drive. When you need to capture a lot of big images, you can choose BMP to save and
convert them to other formats later.
The ScreenHunter 7 Pro package comes with a Regular program and an Admin program. They have identical functionalities. The only difference is the admin program runs with administrator privileges (same as Run as administrator), and the other one doesn't. They are installed at the same time.
By default, ScreenHunter 7 Pro runs the Regular program.
When a hotkey is not working in ScreenHunter 7, there are two possible reasons:
Sign out of Windows and sign back in may also solve this issue.
Some Windows programs disable regular programs hotkeys. That is why we include an Admin program of ScreenHunter.
In this case, you need to run the admin program. E.g. only the admin program can capture a Windows Task Manager screen.
You need to Quit the regular program before you run the admin program.
Yes, AutoScreenRecorder 5 and ScreenHunter 7 Pro will record "Internal Audio", which means it will record from the sound card directly.
If you don't want to hear it, you can turn off the speakers, and the output audio can still be recorded.
