    • Lori

      You’re not supposed to end a sentence with a preposition. You didn’t need to “to”
      That’s like how a lot of people put the word “for” at the end of a sentence which is wrong. An example is, “What did you do that for?” The correct way to form that sentence would be, “Why did you do that?” You know we send our kids to school to learn and they still speak the way they want. I have seen kids graduate not knowing how to read or write. It’s a shame. All those tax dollars wasted.

      • Terry

        Lori, fuck off…to…

        • Peter Petropolis

          When in doubt, just curse. Refuge of the imbecile and coward.

          • Terry

            Oooh keep talking sweet to me…

          • TheDarkKnight

            I think you just confused Terry. Lol. He thinks you’re talking sweet to him.

        • Sean Reeves

          It’s a sad day in life when the general public takes corrections offensively. Get over it, learn, and move on.

        • E.B. H.

          She looks like a troll!

      • JustTheFactsMa’am

        Actually, ending a sentence with a proposition has been well accepted speech for decades. The rule was from Victorian times and was actually only practiced by the self-professed “elite”. Nowadays, if you want to end a sentence with a preposition, it’s ok to. (see what i did there?)

        • Sean Reeves

          I completely disagree. “Well accepted,” by who? Those who refuse to agree with intellect?

          • Timothy Kevin Blankenship

            OMG STFU all of you this is about god damn webcam software who gives a fuck???? no one we are here so we can video our self not talk about stupid fuckin pointless off topic shit now which one of these shitty programs will give me the least amount of malware damn….

          • Eskimo T-Pearl
        • uralldiseased

          The extra ‘to’ is redundant. You already stated “if you want TO”. –If you want to… it’s OK to– sounds dumb.

      • Peter Petropolis

        Lori, am with you absolutely. Only exception “kids.” They are baby goats, not human children.

      • I hate you, Lori!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tried not to

      • cccthornton

        You may want to use a few commas, you have incomplete sentences.

        • I.M. Pistoff

          … and you might want to use a semicolon.

      • C B

        False. The grammatical rule about ending a sentence with a preposition stems from Latin, not English. English is primarily a Germanic language with Latin roots. You most certainly can end your sentences with a preposition and be grammatically correct. Learn yourself some grammar history, lady.

      • cole parker

        I seen this comment, and all i could think is, kill yourself…

        You are correcting grammar on a web cam discussion. None of this matters to anyone, i just think that people like you plague the internet and need to be destroyed!
        – Signed up just to tell you what i think. Take my advice please.

        • ethan

          That’s not fucking cool dude. Suicide is not something to joke about, in any situation. Seriously, what if tomorrow you read online or saw on the news that this Lori person killed herself because of some stupid fucking idiot telling her to kill herself in the comment section of a fucking webpage about RECORDING SOFTWARE!? You’d feel pretty fucking bad (at least I hope you would). For all you know this person could be having suicidal thoughts already. People who correct other people’s grammar just to make themselves fell better are annoying, and I hate it when people do that too, but they aren’t what’s wrong with the world. People like YOU are what’s wrong with this world. Next time you feel the need to post a comment like that, just wait a few moments and think about what you are saying, and the potentially devastating and lasting consequences your comment could have, not just for the person you responded to, but for their family and friends, and even you. Just remember that you don’t know what’s going on in someone’s life. You don’t know what your comment could do to that person. You have no idea how horrible it can feel to have people tell you to kill yourself. The next time you tell someone to kill themselves, they might just do it. You don’t want to have that on your conscience.

      • Lord Dagger

        Are you the grammar police? What do you hope to gain by terrorizing forums with such an attitude? I’m genuinely curious.

      • AbsolutDoc

        Are you kidding? You cannot be serious. This isn’t a resume or a professional setting. This is a comment section, which allows people to speak freely and openly. One of the non requirements is speaking “at ease”. You are wasting your time and infinitely others by nitpicking and pointing out others grammar mistakes and misspellings. This is opposed to be a relaxed area where ones can come and share comments about the topics/products at hand. You are simply impeding that proces and goal and not for nothing, annoying the hell out of everyone. I suggest you take a position in 7th grade English with your Red pen, you’ll piss people off in a more effective way there.

      • Shane Best

        Don’t you have anything better to do? Stupid bitch! LMAO!

  • Be careful downloading some of these! The “Free Screencast” tries to download a lot of miscellaneous other programs, AND it put malware on my computer when I finished the download.

    • Lori

      How much is a lot? Is it a couple, which is two? Is it a few, which is three or four? Is it several, which is more than three or four? When you downloaded the program, did it give you a choice to do a custom install? If so, you would have been able to choose to install those miscellaneous programs. However, you did say the program tried to download miscellaneous programs. Were you able to stop the program from downloading the miscellaneous programs? Were you able to remove the malware from your computer? If so, how did you remove the malware? Did you remove it manually or with another program?

      • JustTheFactsMa’am

        Lori, cut back on you meds, hun. Or the coffee.

        • Peter Petropolis

          What Lori is doing is giving an intelligent response to an what was an vague and un-intelligent review by a person who made accusations about the items but did not give any details. For example, just what “malware” was there that the person complained of? And what “programs” and “a lot” of them did it also try to install. Lori, you are correct. Patronizing, sarcastic advice not needed.

          • Sean Reeves

            I concur, entirely.

          • uralldiseased

            Me three.

          • AbsolutDoc

            four up.

          • MacTheSteve

            Lori comes off as a ragged, controlling bitch. Lori doesn’t realize that education reaches beyond grammar & a precisely researched blog comment. It makes no difference that she’s correct; she failed to learn simple etiquette & that her fellow man is not hers to degrade. She’s miserable.

      • Danessa Jade

        This is an article about Freeware programs, when someone visits or writes a comment it should obtain to the topic at hand, Not chastising people for incorrect spelling and grammar. Not everyone is an English Major or has a degree in English, If I’m glancing the comments, what I want to see people talking about is how some programs try to download other programs or that I need to be careful because I could get Malware from a certain one. I don’t need to know exactly what Malware was installed as long as I know to stay away from the ONE that GAVE the computer MALWARE. I DON’T need to know the names of ALL THE PROGRAMS it tried to install. I JUST NEED TO KNOW WHAT ONES TO STAY AWAY FROM. This feed is not about how everybody’s grammar is incorrect, take your heads out of your asses, especially you Lori, and/or go find a post that’s related, and post til your heart’s content. In the meantime I’m not bothering with this site because all the TOPICALLY HELPFUL posters have been scared off. Thanks

        • Lori

          Don’t get so upset because someone notices that you weren’t taught very well. It’s probably not your fault anyway since schools don’t teach anymore. They either test you forever or tell you what to think and not encouraging creativity. There’s still time for you to learn. Oh and by the way, I wasn’t talking out of my ass since my ass has no vocal cords. Getting more to the topic, do you have a good program to stop malware from getting installed on your computer? Also, when you install a program make sure you always use the custom settings. This way you can choose what you install and what you don’t want installed. Hope that helps!

          • Fuck Off Lori

            I made this account just to tell you to fuck off. This is the comment section on a freeware review website. No one came here for your anal-retentive grammar corrections, or your lamentations over the education system. There’s a time, and a place, and that time and place is neither here nor now. Your self-importance is only surpassed in its annoyingness by your insistence that people are mad because you’re right. You lack even basic social etiquette, and now, thanks to your dimwitted insistence on clogging the comment field with useless shite, I can’t even tell which software is the best. You filled the comment section with shit, and now it’s meaningless, thanks to your autistic war on bad grammar. Congratulations, Lori! You fucked it up!

            P.S. When everything you say is utter shit, your mouth becomes an ass. And learn to use commas, asshole.

          • Jodi Lynne Gardner

            ROFL LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            While I don’t advise Lori to kill herself, I cannot help but to laugh at this account and comment. LORI, you are so FUCKING ANNOYING! People don’t come to online comments sections to write perfect, grammatically correct sentences. Ever heard of texting?? Same deal there too. So please, get the stick out of your ass and let us focus on the subject at hand. Do us all a favor, stick to your beloved books and stay off the internet. THANKS!

            Are you related to Katie Hopkins by any chance?

            I really don’t understand what the fuss is about., you can perform s custom install’s yes , but malware will install it self know matter what you do, when it’s free there is malware. That is how the developer get’s paid . here is a list of great windows programs that work, it does take more then one..

            I also use sandboxie , you can read more about how it works

            This is the state of America now; i’ve long since given up on it. The best one can do now is to keep one’s own nose clean.

  • Terry

    Ah I see…Lori’s a troll…Where’s my can of troll be gone and where is her bridge?

    • Sean Reeves

      She’s not a troll, she’s trying to inform the uniformed, and otherwise teach the ignorant. Stop building walls and embrace those that are attempting to create a more intelligent community.

      • OregonSlacker

        Actually she’s attacking someone and disrupting the discussion, ie Troll
        This is common example of the General Ad Hominem Fallacy. Everyone saying she’s right for attacking when he asked an audio question, are all ignorant.. #1 for not being able to answer the problem asked, and #2 for going along off topic and agreeing with her bullying

        Not to mention I know lots of people who don’t know english who could build computer systems that would baffle your intelligence, english language is only 1 of 7 classes taught in school, and alot of the most intelligent people on earth are usually scientifically and mathematics oriented/scholars, That is why a Bachelor of Science pays traditionally more then a bachelor of Arts. Lori so focused on High school english its obvious her education didn’t pass that, and I’m thinking the same of those agreeing with her.

      • Zach Garner

        I know this was a while ago but may I ask how you would respond if I said ‘I think you meant Uninformed, not uniformed. I’m sorry, did you not get a good education?’

      • AbsolutDoc

        I would like to say that the uniformed are usually well informed. If you are speaking of the uninformed, I suggest you spell it that way. Please, back to the topic at hand.

  • Bobo Nase

    most of the time i like comments section best because that;s where you can pick good tips, but the cooments i have just read here are not at all helpful, not everyone comes from english speaking countries. so let us all embrace the little attempt made in english from all over the world

  • TigerWould

    This looks like the place I can get my big black dick sucked by Lori and her cuckold hubby Peter to just sit back and watch her wipe her mouth.

  • Shawn Powell

    I have been using Debut and it has been working great for me. It looks great, the quality is great. The converting and uploading to YouTube is much much quicker than other devices that I have used to record and upload to YouTube to. :0) And personally I’m a math guy and don’t give a damn. I also started my sentence with ” And .”
    I wonder how far these poor people will have to look to get to responses that are relevant to this page. Debut I use daily and does exactly what I want and need it to do.

    • James Baysinger

      Debut is no longer free. Gotta pay if you want to record. No thanks.

      • Sheri-Lynn Kranz (Sher)

        I just downloaded it today for free. They have a paid version too but I used the basic and it records.

        • AbsolutDoc

          Thanks for the update. I’m off to download it now.

        • sidewinded

          only until the trial ends.

      • Beata Biechowiak

        True. It gave me some time to use it for free and then I couldn’t use it anymore. Also, I noticed many “silly” programs downloaded “themselves” onto my computer “incognito”. Nothing harmful but annoying and taking space and using CPU quite a lot. All but one easy to remove but unnecessary hassle.

    • AbsolutDoc

      Thank you! Exactly what I was looking for in the comments section.

    • Tynesider

      I’m looking for a good recording prog as Lifecam will not install on my PC,thanks for the info I will give it a try.

  • Stefan

    I think I’ve lost about 20,000 brain cells and gained 5 pounds just reading this comment thread.

  • James Baysinger

    Debut Video Capture is no longer free. Useless.

  • Mac The Steve

    None of the listed specs for these programs include motion detect capture/record ability. Do any of these programs offer this feature?

  • Blair Brown

    Who is Lori and why is she so hell bent on chastising people’s grammar skills on a comment section for webcam software? Do you seriously have that little in life to do other than try to correct the World Wide Webs grammar problems? You really need to check out getting a life Lori It appears Peter Petropolis sure likes kissing your ass, I’d bet he’d help you with a life. Now any more comments on what freeware webcam software works the best?

    • Sheri-Lynn Kranz (Sher)

      I’d much rather someone troll about pointing out spelling errors than attacking people’s harmless characteristics, IMHO.

      • Blair Brown

        Glad she has a friend. So nothing about which webcam software is the best? Thanks for adding nothing.

  • Dani Fabricius

    Ok I do have a quick question about these programs. I have a Hp laptop Windows 10, is it better to use the webcam that on the computer or do I need to buy a separate to use these systems? I am looking to use a different a webcam to record videos and the Cyberlink YouCam sucks. I really don’t want to be stuck to using my phone all the time. So please help me.

    • Lord Dagger

      I think you can use your laptop’s webcam with these soft wares. You look good by the way :)

  • Zach Garner

    Debut was good before it became paid for. I can say free2x is a good piece of software which I have used many times but it depends what you want it for.

  • Kyle Deschamps

    Lori, my beautiful raconteur; perhaps you have read Melville and Poe. I suggest you take a look at the witty, grammatically incorrect sentence structure of the classics. Live a little girl, all that is pleasing to the senses ain’t gotta be right.

  • Seulki Lee

    Have you tried Bandicam yet? It can record your webcam while recording your screen and overlay it in the video. I think it is better than Debut.

  • Dan W

    Free screen cast is malware! beware!

    • AbsolutDoc

      Thanks for the heads up. This makes me re-think the validity of this entire “article.”

  • alvinkoffman

    I is gonna try this here debut thing. If you look on they’S home page there is a separate download for noncommercial (that means we’uns) use only.

  • Shadoefax

    “Free Screencast” seemed to be just what I needed for recording video with my Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000 webcam. I downloaded and installed the software (having to decline the installation of several crapware programs) and meticulously set up the many configuration options. After several minutes of tweaking the options I got everything working as it should. Unfortunately, after closing and re-starting the program, all my options had been reset to the default value so I painstakingly re-entered them. After restarting the program again, the options were again reset to default. “Free Screencast” does not appear to have anyplace to request support. The program has a “Contact Technical Support” button in the “Help” dropdown list, but clicking on it does nothing. It’s a shame because it appears to be a well written program with all the options a “techie” like myself find very useful.

  • Jonathan Levi

    Will one of these show the video and play the audio that is being recorded as it records?

    I am setting up a backstage monitor system for a Community Theatre. I have a computer back stage and a USB webcam on a 100ft extender in the booth. I need what is being recorded to be shown so the actors can see (and hear) what is happening on stage, but I also want the play to be recorded with it.

    • Eskimo T-Pearl

      OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) does everything you need and then some

  • siddharthkanojia

    awesome info you share it will really helpful.

  • Alex Ferri

    I liked Debut the most but I needed a tool to record video from the webcam but also a tool to record audio to MP3 and I ended up finding 1AVCapture from PCWinSoft Software, it has all in one program, it is really great. I am happy with it now.

  • Tasos Pardalis

    Is any of these programs actually free for life? I tried a couple and they seem to start with a three day trial and then asking to pay if I want to remove watermarks, etc. I want to use an external webcam to record 720p or even 1080p if possible. I’m using Screencast O-Matic but the quality is a bit off for some reason. Any kind of help would be appreciated

  • Day Berndt

    Yea if Free Screencast wouldn’t have come with two mandatory craps (some “defender” and some yahoo search) that you can’t opt out of and two malwares promptly quarantined by AVG, I would have even installed and used it.
