CamStudio 2.6.294


The interface of CamStudio 2.6.294 is basic as the program is simple and has only one goal – to create videos of your actions on the computer. It runs in a small program window that provides the usual File-Help menus on top of it but they somewhat differ as they more or less offer more options dedicated to recording the video. Users also get a simplistic toolbar with just 7 icons that offer basic functions such as starting and ending the recording process, pausing, changing the program view, setting the video file location and the format (either AVI or Flash, no other options are available) and others. There's also a blank area in the middle of the program window, but honestly it is not clear what it does.

Basic Operations

You can start working with CamStudio 2.6.294 almost immediately. Just don't forget to configure the program before recording – choose the file format and then the location of the file you will create. Everything else is fully automatic – just click on the Record button and you will start recording. Once done click on the Stop button or on the Pause button and this is it. You can then open the video file with your actions and start watching it. A side effect of using this program is that the program and it's program window remain open on the desktop and can be seen in your videos but there's probably a way to eliminate this effect too.


CamStudio 2.6.294 is a utility that can help you create all kinds of videos that focus on your actions while using your PC. Thus you can create fun videos or educational videos that you can upload on popular video-sharing web sites. The program is not hard and users can start using in in almost no time; unfortunately during recording the program window remains open and can be seen in your videos. All in all CamStudio 2.6.294 is a good tool that does the job and may satisfy you – it all depends on what you need and what you are looking for.
