screen recorder FOR MAC AND WINDOWS

Best Free Screen Recorders for Windows and MAC

Having multiple options in screen recording apps makes this market very competitive as there are many quality check parameters which are responsible for a selection of 1 app out of all these. Some parameters have been listed below, on the basis of which we’ll rank the screen recording apps.

  • Video quality: To ensure the fps, capture quality and visual quality without distortions in the final recorded file.
  • Editing experience: Some screen recording tools offer editing features like highlighting some elements with a pen like experience etc. which gives tutorial/teachers makers easy workflow.
  • Ease: There are many free and paid software programs which offer screen recording features, but only a few of them are easy to understand, record and even broadcast directly to streaming services.
  • Length: Recording software programs offer limited time of recording screen per video to their basic users. So, in these parameters we will keep in mind that which tool is best in this segment.
  • Maximum no. of video per month or per account: Total no. of video you can record on a program are limited in free, basic, and even in premium memberships. This limit expands with an increase in membership plan upgrades.
  • No. of maximum users allowed: You only get a limited number of users usually in most of the plans offered by Software programs except Enterprise plan.
  • Pricing: This is one of the major parameters which affect a user’s choice, as some apps are really expensive if they have bad user experience.
  • Cloud Saving, Publishing & Link sharing: This feature is very rare in screen recording or screen casting software programs. But it is one good option for people to just record. And share a playable link like you share YouTube links with someone which makes your video device independent too.
  • Third-Party Integration: Most of the software programs offer third party linking, like PowToon is now linked with MS PowerPoint. These integrations help you speed up your work by reducing no. of steps you are going to do after 1 step.
  • Natural Color Capture: There are many tools which produce very bad videos after capturing them. Some of them are like OBS studio. It’s good but its default setting produces bad quality videos.
