Video Capture Software: Capture VCR, Camcorder, DVD or Xbox

Video capture programs have been around for a long time, each of them with its own strengths. That being said, while some programs are feature-rich, they are also hard to use. As such, the end user ends up passing on them. But wouldn't it be great if there was a feature-rich and extensive free video capture software that was also easy to use? Well, that’s where Bandicam Video Recorder comes in.

If you have a capture card or TV tuner card (hardware), you can capture a VCR/Camcorder, DVD, Set-Top Box, Xbox/PlayStation, Apple TV/HDTV or smartphone and save it as a video file (*.mp4, *.avi) like the digital video recorder (DVR) does.
