4. Upon the creation of your webinar screenshot, you will see toolbars. The options on them allows you to edit, save, upload or share your screenshot. It’s advised to annotate your snapshot with lines, arrows, texts and others on the horizontal bar.

5. Once your’re done with the annotation, you could either hit “Disc” icon on vertical bar to save your image to local drive, or hit the “Cloud” icon on the same bar to upload it to web space for free. Moreover, you could even share the image out immediately by clicking the “Brand” icon.

    Can this software record one webinar while recording another? My issue is I have a scheduling conflict where I have two seminar that have been scheduled by the hosts on the same date and time.

    Alice Wang May 13th, 2015

    Hi, Cheryl. This recorder can only record one region at one time. Also if you use two recorders to recorder two seminars at the same time, the sound will be mixed. So it’s better to have these two seminars on different computers, then the problem will be solved.

    Great software… EXCEPT when it comes to recording GoToMeeting webinars I use this a lot and it works fine with other sources. Although I’ve made a test recording from another internet source beforehand each time to check everything is OK when it comes to GoToMeeting webinars I always end up with the audio not being record.((

    Alice Wang February 8th, 2015

    Hi! Before you start recording GoToMeeting, have you preset the audio settings in “Preferences” of GoToMeeting? If not, you can solve the solutions from here.

    My free screen recorder could only record 3mins today. I used it to record some online videos, and I really like it. Is this free screen recorder not working after some period?

    Alice Wang November 20th, 2014

    Hi! The free version of screen record has no time limitation in recording and it’s not the free trail program, you can feel free to use it.
    Download it from here:

    But I recommend you to use Scree Recorder Pro, it comes with more powerful functions like video converter, video editor and others.

    Michael Z. November 23rd, 2014

    Hi Alice,
    Thank you for your reply. I got the download two months ago from: above you provided) and I used the program more than one month. So what is the difference between these two downloads?

    Alice Wang November 24th, 2014

    It’s exactly the same free screen recorder. I provide this address out of the time limitation it may occurs sometimes.

    Hi, I’m seriously looking for a really good webinar recorder, mainly Go To Meeting. Because I live in Australia many webinars are inconvenient due to time zones, other appointments etc I have heard that many GTM meeting webinars use masking screens to hide visual content. Is this a problem for your software. And do you offer a no questions asked 30 day money back guarantee? My OS is WIN 7

    Alice Wang October 31st, 2014

    Since it’s hard to predict the specific time for displaying a mask on the screen, all annotations available in the program do not have duration settings. In order to solve this problem, you may probably need to edit the recorded video via Windows Movie Maker, check for the exact time that you want to keep the mask turning on, and set correct duration for it on the timeline. By the Way, we’ll add such editing option to this screen recorder in the future.

    Ron S October 31st, 2014

    Hello Alice,
    Thank you for your reply, sounds good so far and you do have some impressive testimonials. However, you did not advise me regarding your product guarantee – do you have one? I have purchased so much **** software where I have been disappointed despite all the good vibes beforehand, I now only purchase where I know I can get my money back if it does not perform as advertised.

    Wow, great article! Thanks for your sharing. Can it record webinar with sound from both sides at the same time?

    Alice Wang November 11th, 2013

    Sure. It can record webinar and sound with goood quality perfectly.
    It offers different Audio Input sources, such as Microphone, System sound as well as System sound and Microphone.
    Before recording, you need to preset Audio Input at “System sound and Microphone”, which can capture webinar and sound from system and microphone at the same time.
