I don’t know about you, but I sometimes like to take a video of what’s happening on my computer screen. You know, just so you can keep track of what’s going on. And to do that, I’ve got two options: either take a video using your digital camera or make a slideshow using screenshots.

Neither one of those catch your fancy?

Then try this better solution!

Hypercam is a free software program that allows you to take a video of what’s happening on your computer screen at any given time. I used to use it for my YouTube videos and it works great! The only downside is that in every video, in the top left hand corner, you’ll see these words: “Unregistered Hypercam 2.” But don’t worry too much, because with video editing software, you can crop that out.

Here’s how to go about getting Hypercam for yourself:

1.) First, head on over to this Web site: http://www.hyperionics.com.

2.) Once you’re there, click on the “Download a free trial” link. (Note: It’s not a limited trial, so you can take your time checking it out).

3.) Next, choose either one of the servers (it doesn’t matter which one you choose).

4.) Finally, just run the install and you’re good to go!

Once you’ve tried Hypercam for the first time, I promise you’ll be hooked. Hypercam is one of the best when it comes to screen capture software. Enjoy!
