video capture app

9.22.260 (See all)

AMCap is a small yet fully functional video capture application compatible with Microsoft DirectShow (formerly ActiveMovie, hence the name). It is based on the sample AMCap source code from the Microsoft DirectX 9 SDK. I added many features that I was requested, including:

Still capture (Ctrl+L) in BMP, JPEG and PNG
Support for compression (Windows Media 9 Series only)
Remember Video Input, Video Standard and Video size from previous session
Full screen mode (ALT+Enter)
Support for multi-monitor (using VMR9)
Caption bar and menu on/off (F11)
Always on top feature (F12)

Sean Wyseman For a free capture program, it works surprisingly well. I'm downloading the newest version as I had installed 1.0 without knowing there were other versions. I was completely satisfied with 1.0. There are minor issues with intuitiveness but no more so than extremely expensive software, so I didn't think it should lose any stars, after all it costs nothing but your time to use it.
