it works.. but take notice that this is NOT LiteCam 5.0 and it does NOT have a live-streaming feature..
the 5.0 is somewhere else on steam.. this page is for LiteCam 4.9.0.5..
i am not into streaming but i would like to have that option in the next update.. one can only hope!

back then.. before i purchased LiteCam 4.9.0.5,
i was discouraged by the amount of negative reviews for this software that ranges from "it does not work, do not purchase" to "the Devoloper is not fixing the numerous problems that this software has"..

but seeing that it is the cheapest 'game-capture' on Steam, plus it was on discount.. i said to myself.. why the hell not?!
`

initially,
i was going to deliver the biggest F bomb in my review.. because i had problems playing-back my recordings..
i simply could not view-back all my recordings without running into problems..

i was using a number of free media players (VLC, TigerPlayer.. ..) to play the LiteCam's AVI files, and they often crashed when playing LiteCam's AVI files - especially when you fast forward or go backward.. among other issues like, the voice does not match the video, frequent hick-ups and a pile of error-messages..

the solution was to play the LiteCam AVI files on the standard Microsoft Media Player.. problem solved!!

the problem (in my case) is NOT in the recording but in playing back those files; and i have noticed similar problems when playing back some internet-downloaded MKV videos of the highest quality.. they only work well on the Microsoft Media Player that comes in every Windows version.. and fail on other 'free' media players..

so my biggest advice for people who had playback issues,
to try using the Windows Media Player, if other players fail to playback your captured videos.. or convert them into different formats..

the other solution is to convert the LiteCam AVI file to any other format that works on other media players..
which leads me to my next complaint.. the biggest..
`

my biggest complaint about this software,
is the in-built conversion feature to convert the LiteCam recordings from AVI to MP4 or to WMV, it simply did not work either on my PC.. which is a BIG let-down..
i had to resort to a 3rd party software to convert those videos, like Aimersoft Video Converter and Corel VideoStudio..

unfortunately,
i did not explore further on how to fix this problem, so i would be able to advise you about the matter.. i have Corel VideoStudio and Aimersoft Video converter on my PC, so the LiteCam's in-built conversion feature was not important to me to solve.. sorry..

the other thing is that..
i wish i can see myself while using the camera PIP feature..
in some videos, i was moving a lot in and out of frame, and i was totally blind on where the camera was pointing to..
i tried running a 3rd software to show me what my web-cam was capturing, but that had a negative effect on the recording.. i.e. it did not work..
`

in any case,
if the software fails to work on your PC or fails to deliver as promised, i would think that it would be more helpful to share a bit of information about your system here, in the reviews..
my computer is Windows 10 32bit, Gigabyte motherboard intel core i3 2120, 8G of RAM and GeForce GTX 650Ti.. i have screen- captured CS:GO and Rocket League with infrequent problems (maybe once every 50 recordings)..

i believe that this way, it would help other people to decide whether they would buy this product, or not.. especially with the amount of negative reviews that this software had recieved..
`

in conclusion,
it is cheap, takes few amount of memory to run, and it is simple to use..
it delivers the very basic need to capture your gameplay.. but those very basic features may irritate some people in the long run..

it is definitely not for streaming.. but it is perfect to game-capture a game, followed by adding effects, titles and overlays using a video editting software.. and maybe post it on youtube..

all the best

Not really all that impressed with the software. I expect a performance hit but I am consistantly running DOOM at 59 FPS until the software starts recording. Losing 45 FPS is not acceptable even though I am running at 4K resolution at medium graphics. It works great for desktop applications but at the resolutions we are using today, I would have expected more from this. I am going to test a few different settings, and I will update this review accordingly.

I do not stream, but will be looking at buying some hardware in lieu of this in the future. Action! software is similiar, though only lose 39 FPS. Either way, it is unplayable. I am giving this a thumbs up for the desktop usability and easy to understand interface (which is what I bought it for originally. I just don't reccomend it for a high end 4K setup like mine for game recording.

If anyone is interesting in different test resolutions and results, reply and I will see to it in the next few weeks.


Specs:
AMD 8320 3.5 ghz
GTX 980 ti w/ 6g of ram
GTX 760 ti 2g ram for physix
32 g system memory
Samsung 65" UHD as a monitor.


(update): I set everything up to 1080p and all default settings in video as well as advanced settings. The AA defaulted to SMAAx8 so I set it to SMAA only and the game runs on my system at 162 FPS. no surprise there. Litecam is set at 100 FPS but the video still caps at 30 or so during the whole test. A hit of 132 FPS?!!! WTF. It is safe to say that this software is good desktop demo capture but little else.

This program is awesome!

It works well with recording video and games. When you first buy it, if you don't understand it right away, dont give it a bad review. There are so many settings you can change, like FPS, Sound, Resolution, Credits, Facecamera, computer sound, Mouse Pointer and mouse highlighter, and so much more.

However, if you want the high end performance (100 FPS), you need a good computer.

I tried this to record a Skyrim Let's Play. There are two major issues with it. First the main menu doesn't seem to scale when running on a 4k desktop, I had to use Win10s magnifier to use it. Much worse, when Skrim crashes (which it will very infrequently do) the .avi vid your making will be completely corupted and unplayable (it's not even loadable in a player).

The software is great for recording your computer screen and audio device. A 3rd party x264vfw codec is recommended for efficiency in video quality and compression. Audio is recorded in the wave file format, making additional 3rd party encoding programs nessasary for greater compression of the audio stream.

I see no major issue in this software. I use it to record video game footage for Youtube and it transfers very well. However it doesn't record in what is considered "HD", so if that's what you are looking for, I have a peice of advice for you:

Keep looking.

But, for what I use it for it meets my expectations.

DO NOT BUY
only buy if:
1. you have dxtory
2. it's 80% off
3. you need a good mjpeg codec that comes with it

install the software
open dxtory
use RSUPPORTER MJPEG codec VFW (32 bit only but works with 64 bit apps) and set the quality to 80%. amazing quality and while not lossless it will compress without artifacts because its a freaking collection of jpegs. pretty damn sweet. but dont use the program itself.

AND SINCE THERES LITERALLY NO COMPRESSION OR PROGRAMMING IT WILL ENCODE SUPER FAST

Its been buggy for the past 2 years... not gonna change since the devs started the "new version" and not touching this one...its a moneysink only works for a low percentage of ppl. Id never recommend a product like this. Lacks basic compatibility checking on the devs part, sold as a game-recorder...crashes lots of games. Hell it even crashes upon starting up sometimes. I checked it every few month since i own it on multiple OS' and rigs with a million settings tuned not only by myself and common snese but online guides written by devs and powerusers and it always been a huge disappointment.
12/1 since it works once every year...Its should be flagged as a scam and refunded for a lot of ppl since i remember what weve been promised years ago and very little of that became true.

Piece of crap works but depends on the game your playing. It worked fine with Undertale and Fallout 4, but crapped out and skimped on footage capture on Tales From The Borderlands.

I does get complicated to use and is somewhat convoluted. Otherwise It records great quality, ♥♥♥♥ UI

*This review has been edited after the voice-recording issue had been resolved, and adjusted further after spending a couple more weeks using it. Lots of info here. This review may not change your mind about the software, but it's intended to provide you with the information you need to make that decision.

This is a great, cheap product, depending on what you need from it. Records audio and video pretty well, and there's a good variety of codecs to choose from, with some additional options for Picture in Picture and limiting your fps if you need to, adding a watermark and such. Little things like that. To compare this to FRAPS, this will provide you with high-quality visuals if you can afford the harddisk space. The default MPEG-4 codec (which it recommends) will eat up approximately 225-250 MB for 2 minutes of footage (varies on how much is going on visually) at 1080p 30fps. You WILL want to experiment with codecs and bitrates to achieve the best performance for what you need out of whatever you're recording. This is something that FRAPS does not do, as FRAPS uses a custom codec that you'll need to obtain again should you decide to reinstall a fresh OS or uninstall FRAPS. I've enjoyed FRAPS a lot, and consider it a beast as it taxes your PC and requires really hefty hardware and lots of RAM, but it's very simple to use. This software requires more fine-tuning than FRAPS. Experiment and find that sweet spot.

To compare this to xSplit Broadcaster/Gamecaster (no, this does not allow live streaming) you can make use of the Picture in Picture functions to place a webcam (adjustable size, but you can only place the PnP in one of 9 spaces, left/center/right from top to bottom, think tic tac toe), This is useful for those of you who may be making videos for YouTube (etc...) and you would like to have a webcam for your face and your voice commentary, and even has Chroma settings for those of you who can use them effectively. xSplit does this as well, but allows you to resize, crop, and place the screens anywhere. xSplit Gamecaster has more of an in-game interface as opposed to xSplit Broadcaster, and there are things in Broadcaster that you can't do in Gamecaster (in regards to window/screen/display positions). Speaking of voice commentary, this brings us to an issue that I had earlier with the software.

liteCam has some audio settings that really need some work. If you have multiple voice recording devices plugged in, you cannot change the order of priority/order of those devices. This is where things get tricky and where the real meat of the original version of this revised review was.

I use a Logitech G35 USB headset for voice recording/capture, and a Logitech 720p webcam with built-in microphone, and I also have the Screaming Bee audio drivers for modifying my voice. My G35 was set as my default voice communication device as far as my OS was concerned and should have taken priority. liteCam was using the Screaming Bee drivers by default when I had placed the check mark (on liteCam's audio settings) to enable my microphone and did not give me a choice in the matter. Because of this, I could record game audio, but not my voice, and adjusting the settings another way allowed me to record my voice, but not the game audio. It was one or the other, but not both, all because it was picking up the wrong drivers. Again, Screaming Bee isn't physical hardware, it's a device driver I can use to modify my voice, and Windows recognizes my G35 headset as the default voice communication device, but liteCam didn't care or give me the option to choose it. This wasn't fixed until I just up and disabled Screaming Bee. The microphone settings work now, but I'm not entirely sure if it's really recording from my headset or my webcam now. A fix or adjustment to this in the future would be nice. Just for clarification, this was all accomplished hours later after thinking about it and writing an angry email to the devs. The product is still new and there was no actual support in the forums here for it other than "send an email to litecam@rsupport.com THX".

Others have complained about stuttering or issues with their FPS. This may be a case by case issue. I've not noticed many problems with my FPS because I'm not running on default settings. My montor doesn't display any higher than 60, so try not to set your settings higher than you can handle. It will give you options to adjust the framerate for your games as well as the recording's framerate. Be sure to adjust both of those values before playing any games.

This software also allows you to edit your videos you recorded but your only option is to trim from left or right. You will want to obtain some decent video-editting software. That's a given though. Unless you're just starting out, most of you who would be interested in this software may already have editing software installed. When recording in xSplit, liteCam, or FRAPS, I'll still be running my footage through Vegas or similar programs.

Last couple issues: Running the program through Steam will make it difficult to invite to multiplayer games. Exiting liteCam can crash some of your programs. I've had it crash ArmA 3 as well as the Raptr desktop app. A patch came through last night, resolved the crashing issues in one area, but caused another issue elsewhere. Again, your milage may vary, maybe they can fix it, but that's all on them. Finally, there's a woman's voice that says "Recording Ready"/"On"/"Off". It's loud, it's annoying, and there's no way to turn it off. You can't even mute liteCam from your volume mixer.

FRAPS is about $40, xSplit is $25/month $60/year $110/3-years and liteCam is $25 when it's not on sale. You can't live stream with it, but it may suit your needs. It is the cheapest of those 3 I've compared it to, and I would almost say it's better than fraps.

EDIT: Been using this for a few weeks now. I'm not going back to FRAPS anymore. They have resolved many crashing issues that I had experienced before, and they are still pumping out updates and just released a new codec to use. If they continue to update this software on a more or less semi-regular basis until it's perfect, this one is definitely a keeper. Recorded some footage of Grand Theft Auto Online on Xbox 360 using this software in Video Recording mode on my Hauppauge HD PVR2 (1080p @ 30 fps) for 18 minutes. FRAPS used up 37 GB and this used up about 800 MB before running it through Vegas to knock it down further. 24 Minutes of Little Pink Best Buds prototype on liteCam requred 2 GB. FRAPS would have required more than 55 GB.

Don't waste your money on this garbage. If you need a screen recording software for games, use FRAPs, or anything else, really. This program is awful. I recorded an hour of raw footage and the recording was corrupted at the end. I tried recording numerous times thereafter and each time the recording was either corrupt or had graphical glitches like greyed out pallets or inverted color schemes. I've never actually wanted my money back for anything that I've bought on Steam, but this makes the first time for that. Please do yourself a favor and do not purchase this program. You will regret it if you do.

I will admit that the software did work for me, but not in a quality that I could actually use for my projects and found it to be a bad investment on my part, unlike other starting YouTubers I at least have the fortune to have a little disposable income to make a mistake like this, if you're in a tight spot, I must strongly suggest FRAPs, which works well for me, is well tested and proven. I had an issue in which I couldn't record game and microphone audio at the same time using the software, which is disappointing since the fact it does picture-in-picture was very alluring, the microphone audio was choppy and small bits would be pulled from earlier parts of the recording producing a choppy effect or a tapping noise. This sound was extremely distracting in the videos and rendered them useless from a professional standpoint. A gentleman was very kind in trying to assist me in getting the software to work, but neither of us could seem to find out what was wrong. If in the future the program is fixed and compatable with my computer (which is a very capable piece of hardware I might add) then I will retract this review and judge it according to it's capabilities then, but for the time being this software should never have been released without being thoroughly tested on multiple platforms.

Also, in case that happens, if the software does get a major update and you see this, please let me know so I can review it again at that time. As it stands now, I would definately say that this program is not a good investment at this time.

Also, please vote this (and other honest) reviews up, people deserved to be warned about this product.

I wouldn't recommend this recording software to anyone. I was looking for something to record games that FRAPS wouldn't record and this isn't it. At first it worked okay, but I found on long recording sessions that it dropped the frame rate so low that the recording hung at a still frame for 10-15 seconds, skipped to another still frame and hung on it for 10-15. Rinse and Repeat. And this was recording a 16bit indie RPG game.

After the July updates it is unusable. I launch it, try to start recording, 1 second of recording and it crashes. The only fix mentioned is to go and download a codec, which I did. Didn't fix it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, still doesn't work. I'm fed up with it. This software is garbage at this time. I suggest anyone looking for a recording program to buy FRAPS and for the games that FRAPS can't record, use Bandicam. I should have bought Bandicam in the first place. Silly me for trying to support a little developer.

Screenshot works when recording game. Screenshot doesn't work when not recording game.
I tried to report this bug on online. The company forces me to give my information for better service.

Recording results are good but earthquake is on monitor while recording. Yes, I have a not good videocard and liteCam is not light.

And trimming video clip doesn't work on the video which is recorded by the company's own codec.

Needs a LOT of work. I think there's potential...but lots of bugs, and strange behaviors. Crashing things is not unusual, and the file converter appears to be broken entirely. Will have to see how it shapes up with updates down the road.

Got the software a while back and at first it wasnt the best (see old review below) but after updates and responses to the Steam community the devs have improved it beyond my expectations. Support responses are better and the program runs very well. Well done and I recommend this to anyone looking to shoot web videos and game footage!

"Got this to see if it was less of a lag in game than fraps (which will only preform well at half size recordings) and was pleased to see that this one did not lagg game, as much (still afraid to use for anything fast paced like FPS, which is in the name of the software), but it was most likely because it was only recording the audio and a frozen single frame every 20 minutes of recording. Messed with the settings and got it to record smooth video with a freeze every 1-2 minutes for 5-10 seconds with no pattern or common thread in game to be a cause. So we decided it wasnt too bad for a quick post and found out that the recommended codec is not compatipble with most editing suites like Final Cut Pro so now I get to go through and convert all the files with the software's built in converter...but it does not work either. The company website offers no true support options and the steam support options are even more vague. Bought at 50% off and now know why it was so cheap. Do not recommend."

Read the Reviews, but tried it anyways.
Needs major Udate to fix many issues from sound to crashing not only itself but the game you are playing.

This video capture software is straightforward in its basic operation and does as advertised.
It will-

Record your entire session
Record your Mic as well as others chatting via in game com's or over Steam calls
Record in optimal resolutions that you choose in the menu or not record the voice/com's based on your options and preferences.

Over all I am quite satisfied with the performance and overall quality of the videos that come from this software. Some games do record at a better quality than others, but the loss is so marginal that it will not hinder the overall presentation of your video. The sound is recorded in full stereo and without any noticeable volume drops or interference.

Now, there are a few small issues that I have come across. When updates come out is is possible that the location of your saved videos will revert back to your main drive (C:\) rather than the one you designated, but a simple fix.

At random times for no reason the recording will stop with no input from the user. It just stops... The recording is saved but if you did not notice it stop you will keep going thinking everything is fine and dandy. This usually happens when stating a game or switching a game when the software was running in the background.

The on screen menu/status bar seems to disappear while ingame and recording. the recording does NOT pick up the status bar but it helps the user to know if it is recording, paused or stopped. Again if you are recording and the bar disappears IT DOES RECORD and save to the folder selected.

I also had an issue with voice quality when recording (coms/chat) being grainy and distant, but that was an audio option I found and corrected.

Over all I am quite pleased with this software and do suggest it for anything you may need it for. Watch your recordings because these files get BIG QUICK and is real easy to get carried away and have a 7 gig 1080p video now sucking up your HDD space!

Notes: I would like to see a better option menu/settings. There is a voice that tells you when you record and when you stop. But its either on or off a volume control for said voice would be perfect! I also want to see more optimized support for other games. Eg: Star Wars the Old Republic is grainy and less refined than recording Terraria. Why? Not sure just is.

Love it tho and would by again if needed.

The adage "Buy cheap, buy twice" applies to this software. Despite claims to record DirectX 8 games, it doesn't properly hook into the one I tried it with (Star Trek Armada II with the Fleet Ops total conversion mod).

Additionally, when attempting to record a narrated playthrough of FTL, the software is randomly malfunctioning 8-10 minutes in, turning the video portion of the recording to a stuttering mess.

Audio recording is fine, however, and performance impact seems to be minimal on my main system, but until the random recording malfunctions are fixed I cannot recommend this software.

Edit: After some persistence, I found that using the Lagarith lossless codec I was able to record without hitches. I would then convert the video using VLC then upload to YouTube.

I still have no idea why the included codec was stalling out, but I was glad to find a workaround.
