Screen Recorder tool is more and more needed by people when they are creating video tutorial, record online video and show gameplay, etc. People tend to use a third-party tool to record computer screen activity because there are some constraints of their devices. What’s more, Some third-party programs deliver optimized performance such as VideoSolo Screen Recorder.
I’ve used its Windows version for a month and it has become my favorite screen recorder tool. And it’s one of the most popular screen recorders in the market. Today’s review will be carried out in four aspects: features, versions, system requirements and final thoughts. So, let’s not waste time and have a look.
Detailed Features of VideoSolo Screen Recorder
VideoSolo Screen Recorder is a desktop software which possesses three main features: video recorder, audio recorder and screen capture. The program is easy-to-use because its functions are clearly divided into three parts in the main interface. It’s clear at a glance. No ads and no spam links are on its interface. Below I will specify each of its feature.
If you want to make a video tutorial, record online video, record gameplay, video recorder can meet those demands. Full screen, fixed region and custom region can be set to record Windows/Mac screen activity. There are many detailed designs that I love. For example, it will show countdown before recording or a beep on start recording. For a better experience, VideoSolo Screen Recorder allows to move the recording region when recording. And the tool bar will not appear in the recording video even if you drag it to the record region. Desktop icons can be also hidden when recording.
Having said its detailed designs, we turn to its edit designs. After you set up the record region, you can turn on the Webcam, system sound and microphone to record simultaneously. It is worth mentioning you can use hot keys to control program. During recording, screenshot and record length are allowed to set. You can add rectangle, circle, line, arrow brush and sequence number to create effects. It can highlight what you want to emphasize when you record your tutorial. After recording, you can clip the videos.
With video recorder, you can effectively record your gameplay without having any major impact on your frame rate. Video format, video quality and frame rate can be chosen in settings.
Another amazing feature is audio recording which can record the audio from computer system and microphone simultaneously. WMA, MP3, M4A and AAC are provided. According to the computer capacity, you can choose lowest, low, middle, high, highest and lossless audio quality. You can also adjust the sound during recording.
Users can take screenshots with great ease by using VideoSolo Screen Recorder. It’s the third main feature in the main interface. There are no obstacles that you just click it for screenshot. What you should do is to drag the capture region. The software provides basic edition function. You can add rectangle, circle, line, arrow, brush, text and so on to make photo.
VideoSolo Screen Recorder has two versions: Windows and Mac. The functions of them are the same but there are a few differences:
- Mac version requires an audio driver when recording audio. When you don’t need VideoSolo Screen Recorder any more, you can directly uninstall it on your Mac. But the Audio Driver will not be uninstalled if you only uninstall the program.
- It doesn’t offer the feature to add annotations when recording the Mac screen but it allows to add annotations when taking snapshot.
The only thing I don’t like is that the installation is time consuming. So, you need to spend a little time to wait. When you download it, you can get the trial version which means some of its function are locked. You cannot clip video or audio before saving. The time length you can save after each recording is 3 minutes. Full version can unlock all these limitations. The license is only＄39.95 for free lifetime update and you can have a discount for multiple-user license for family. It notable that there is no watermark in the video recorded by the trial version. This makes it stand out of kinds of softwares.

In this month, I’ve used it for many times and it can perfectly fulfil the task every time. This simple and easy-to-use program offers all the necessary features which allows to record audio and video, add annotations, customize recording area and so on. Its functions are so clear to be separated into three areas. It’s also a lag-free screen recorder and you do not see any frame rate drop. For recording videos, it’s my go-to solution.
