oCam 21.0
A versatile screengrab and desktop capture tool

OCam is a very configurable capture tool which can both record individual images and videos of your desktop activities.

The program starts with a floating, resizable frame, and a simple toolbar. Position and size the frame to the area you'd like to record, and click Capture to record a single image, or Record to start capturing a desktop video (click the button again to stop). Clicking Open then opens the Explorer folder containing your captures, ready for your review.

While this sounds fairly standard, oCam is well implemented, and most of the features have considerable depth. You might first select a capture area by manually moving the selection frame, for example. But click the Resize button and you can also set the frame to a fixed size (640x480, 800x800, 1024x768 and so on), the full screen, or have it capture an application window.

OCam offers considerable control over its video output, too. You're able to set its target frames per second, keyframe rate, audio and video bitrate, export format (MPEG1/2/4, FLV, MOV, TS, VOB, XVID, OpenDIVX, AVI) and more. Captured images can be saved as JPG, BMP, GIF and PNG, and there are assorted other options to explore (hotkeys to launch recording, the audio device to capture, and more).

In our tests this all worked very well, too; the program popped up when we asked, placed minimal demands on our system, and reliably recorded both images and desktop video.

Beware: the installer will by default change your browser start page. If you don't want this, pay close attention during setup and clear the relevant checkbox when it appears.

Version 21.0:
 * Fixed a bug that program screen is recorded together, when the Aero feature is enabled.
 * When the recording screen, by supporting multiple cores, and improved recording performance significantly.
 * After closing About dialog, fixed a bug that does not move the focus to the main form.
 * Fixed that the Save As dialog box to go behind the window in the window 8.1.
 * Add advertising for the livelihood of developers.

Verdict:

OCam could benefit from a few small tweaks, like the ability to minimise it to your system tray. The core desktop video recorder is excellent, though, supremely configurable and easy to use - go grab a copy immediately.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
