Hi everyone, I was just wondering if I could get some help regarding what are peoples preferred programmes for recording betangel in windows XP. I want to record my trading so I can review it after the races and watch for indicators, charts etc.. in more detail. So far I've only really tried with Camtasia but find it makes the screen flicker and makes it almost impossible to trade.

Thanks in advance.

I use Camtasia without too much trouble but you could try one of these Free Screen Recording Software

I have been demoing this for week or so and have just purchased it, seems to be easy to set up and use.

luck to all,

Camstudio is free and works fine for me using the following settings
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Any ideas or solutions welcome

try flashback express. seems (to me) to be the easiest to use, and is not cpu intensive.

probably easier to just save the logs rather than record them.

I've tried a few but keep going back to oCam. Simple and effective, hotkeys, timed recording, auto file naming, saves as avi etc, not too greedy on cpu.

The free version has a fairly small watermark and at $35 the full version isn't cheap, but I've used it a lot, for years, and programmers need to eat too.

Guys please don't be paying for any screen recording software.

Use OBS (google it). It's used by gamers and content creators to stream to platforms such as twitch/youtube and can also record local files. It's free and there are tons of tutorials on how to set it up available on youtube.

You can record to a local file, set the resolution and any hotkeys you want for various tasks (start/stop recording, use push-to-talk for your microphone etc.) all in all plenty of functionality.
Lastly and most importantly (for me) -- no watermark.

It's quite something looking back on trades, really showcases mistakes and how different we can become in the decision-making process in the moment when we are affected by emotion vs. when we are thinking logically watching in a relaxed setting.

Have fun guys 8-)
