What is Video Capture Software?

Video Capture Software enables users to take screenshots or record video from their personal computer.

Video capture software is similar to screen capture solutions that can take a snapshot of the desktop as an image file (e.g., PNG, JPEG) or as a digital recording of desktop activity.

The software can take either be the whole screen or a portion of it.

Video capture tools help create videos, presentations, tutorials, and demonstrations of what the presenter is viewing on their own screen. It can also be used to create video content, such as for YouTube or for native video placement on one’s site or for social media platforms.

Video capture software should also have editing and customization features.
