We lamented the other day that there was no built-in screen recorder in Windows 10, a feature that is now almost standard on mobile platforms.
Samsung must have heard it, as Alumia reports, the company is working on a cute screen recording app for its Windows 10 laptops.
The app, simply referred to as Samsung Screen Recorder, should be sufficient for most basic user needs.
Once launched, the application will feature an always visible application bar that will allow you to:
- Start screen recording
- Take a screenshot
- Launch a webcam window
- Launch the app settings
You can select the screen to record (useful for a dual monitor setup), select a webcam as the source, and adjust the following settings:
- Video resolution of recording (down to low quality 720 × 480)
- Audio On / Off (and audio source selection)
- Yes / no display of cursor icon during recording and associated click effects
- Select the folder in which to save the recordings
- Selecting the image format of screenshots (PNG, JPEG, TIFF and BMP)
- Quick customization of keyboard input
- Other information, application user guide, etc.
Recording will start after a 3 second countdown.
The app is currently in testing in the Microsoft Store and once released it will unfortunately only be available for Samsung laptops. Fortunately, Microsoft is working on a Powertoy (Video Gif Editor) with similar functionality, but probably less functionality. To learn more, click here.
