Video - Capture (13)

VirtualDub Portable v1.10.4

Midas on 16 Jun 2015
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 27 Oct 2013
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility. It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is great for video capture and transcoding via third-party video codecs. It can also read MPEG-1 video files by default but requires Plugins Pack to open more types of video (adds FLIC, FLV, Matroska, MPEG-2, AC-3 and WMV).

VirtualDub Portable is a PortableApps.com format wrapper for VirtualDub. Alternatively, X-VirtualDub is also available.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Video codecs such as DivX, XVID, etc.
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Partial. VirtualDub supports unicode, but the PortableApps launcher doesn't.

How to extract:
  1. Download the self-extracting EXE and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Optionally, extract the Plugins Pack to the same destination directory
  3. Launch VirtualDubPortable.exe

@Joe: Try to edit the "VirtualDubPortable.ini" file from the "VirtualDubPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher" folder by commenting/removing the following line: "ProgramExecutable64=VirtualDub64\VeeDub64.exe".

@joby_toss,

That worked. You are a genius!! Thank you.

There is also a yaP config @ http://rolandtoth.hu/yaP/#examples/VirtualDub.ini

It's for 32bit VirtualDub, so to use with x64, change App\VirtualDub.exe to App\Veedub64.exe

WebCamImageSave captures a still image from your camera at an interval you choose and saves it into image file (.jpg, .png, .bmp) on your disk. Images can be formatted according to time/date (e.g.: img20110725_123256.jpg). Optionally, the program can add a label to the image with date/time that the image was captured.

for me is great, but PNG or BMP support will be nice

magyar on 2011-05-24 23:13

very easy intuitive fast and clear program, i autoboot it everytime

allclownsareevil on 2011-08-16 16:12

Really glad I tried this, usually I use fascapture, but this has some great features over it. Like others have said an ability to be able to save captures as pdf would be nice, but hardly essential. There are other programs on here to convert images to pdf.

Chronolapse v1.0.7

billon on 19 Sep 2017
  • 19MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 2 May 2011
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Chronolapse is a tool for creating time lapses on windows using screen captures, webcam captures, or both at the same time. CL also provides some rudimentary tools for annotating your time lapse, as well as creating a picture-in-picture effect with two sets of images. Each piece of Chronolapse functionality has been created to work stand-alone to make the program more versatile. For example, you can easily capture with another program and create a PIP in Chronolapse, or capture with Chronolapse and annotate somewhere else.

Taksi v0.7.7.2

webfork on 25 Jun 2017
  • 320KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 3 Jun 2013
  • Suggested by Fluffy

Taksi is a video/screen capture tool for 3D applications. It can capture from almost any DirectX, OpenGL or GDI window and capture video of the contents. Although videos can be compressed, this is not recommended as it further slows down an already taxing process

Note: This program does not appear to be in development any longer so some features are not implemented (such as recording audio).

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder
License: BSD
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice using the "MSI Administrative Installation" method
  2. Delete the .MSI file (name varies depending on version eg. taksi-0.7.6.msi) and TaksiLogo.jpg
  3. Launch Taksi.exe
Recommendations: Turn video compression off for the best performance. Click "Config" and then, in the "Format" tab, select the "Video Codecs" button. Choose "Full Frames (Uncompressed)" from the drop-down dialog, and then "OK". The program will warn you that this uses up a very large amount of disk space: click "OK" and then "Save").
