Can anyone recommend free video capture software for PC? I need to capture part of an NPC interaction for a contributor who provided us with a great speech/voice over for Vengeance: Reloaded. I see there's plenty out there, but looking for something free and fairly easy to use and want to avoid ad/malware that seems rife on most download sites.

VLC Media Player will do video capture. I haven't used that feature of it, but know it can do it.

Below is a private message I've posted 1.5 years ago, so the instructions may differ from the current version.

OBS is a great FOSS video recording/livestreaming program.
https://obsproject.com/

Download e 'binaries' for e portable version.
(I'm a portable advocate, juz like JA2.)

Simple Tutorial:

0. Start JA2 (preferably in windowed mode)
(run e game at 1280x720 for native 720p recording or 1366x768/1600x900 for the larger JA2 interface size while still sticking to 16:9 video ratio.)
1. RMB to add new 'Window Capture'
2. Choose the JA2 window
3. Set e base resolution as the window size (for native size recording & eliminate unnecessary bloat/video scaling to monitor resolution)


'Preview Stream' to ensure correct capture before 'Start Recording'.

- Video file can be found in 'File' tab.
- Recording bitrate can be found in 'Settings/Encoding' tab.



No savegame (just before e bug occurs), no cure.

I may answer/reply in my old public posts & prefer PM over e former [FUDforum's PM suxx]

I've used OBS for recording and it's great. It takes more fiddling that a normal capture program but it also allows you to customize exactly what you want captured and how.
