Cool Tool: Free Cam

Friday, March 1, 2024

The next time you're dreading putting a training video together, make your job a little bit easier. Instead of worrying about errant audio or upload speed, think big picture.

Free Cam is a screen-recording app for Windows operating system that enables users to create screencasts, record voice-overs, edit the recorded videos, and upload finished creations directly to video-sharing sites such as YouTube. Other capabilities in the free version of the app include noise reduction, video trimming to cut unnecessary parts, and file exportation. Email videos to colleagues and post them to social media feeds or upload to business or personal websites.


When screen recording, users can choose to capture their entire screen, a selected area of the screen, or a single window. Free Cam also enables users to emphasize important details of the training process by highlighting the computer cursor and emitting system sounds such as mouse clicks or background music.
