iShowU

Version: 1.88 || Release Date: 2011-04-06 || License: Commercial with demo ($20 USD) Developer: shinywhitebox ltd | App Owner: scornflake

iShowU allows you to capture and record anything you can see on your screen, along with audio from any compatible source. Ever been in the situation where you wanted to show someone what was going on, but couldn't? Either the person is not right next to you, not around, in another country (the list goes on). Now just record what you're doing and what you want to say, and stick it in an email!

I really don't understand your problem thiffany. iShowU captures everything you want (and SnapzPro does as well)..

PLUS, to capture YouTube
it is way easier to download the file
from Safari's Activity Window
and use iSquint to convert.

Well, I tried this and SnapPro-whatever
to capture iFilm videos and all I get is the 1st frame
and then WHITE even though it SEEMS like it is working
while it is << capturing. >>
Maybe MY mistake, I dunno.

I just tried to capture a realvideo stream and it worked. The video quality depends on the codec and the cpu power you have though.

How does this compare to Snapz Pro X? Obviously, iShowU has the benefit of being cheaper, but I want to start using the G5's at school to capture game footage (being run from my laptop in target mode.)

That's another issue I have... I can't actually install this on the main machine. Will I be able to run it from my laptop once it's in target mode? Can someone confirm this for me? (Install iShowU or Snapz Pro X on an external drive/target-mode-enabled-Mac and then capture from the host computer? Thanks in advance for any tips.)

And what is this [ see bellow ] supposed to be Thiffany?

(if you ask, this is a capture from a little web-video website called youtube)

It does NOT, nor any other app I have tried,
free or EXPENSIVE. Record your screen playing web video
and you get a blank there afterwards.
For example, Flash-video.

Re web-video, what do you mean? iShowU just records whatever is happening on screen (OpenGL or not), so it should get it.

I don't think you will find any free screen recording apps, and I've paid for a couple, but iShowU blows them all away. It does so much for it's little price.

Well, that is what they all say,
but every app I have tried fails to actually show the video.
They all seem to have a copyright-DRM-ization algorithm built-in.
