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:
Runs on: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").

Correction of my entry at 2010-05-23 11:01
The version at Softpedia IS portable BUT it sets reg keys.

The download link is misleading, but many mirrors are on the web. I downloaded it from softpedia:

@jimdorey: I'm a little confused why we had a listing that this works with Win10 -- it really doesn't. When this version of the program stopped being developed, Win7 wasn't even out yet. Anyway, I recommend trying another software package for that OS. I've updated the entry.

@jimdorey: v5.3 works fine on my win 10 x64 using a 1080p screen resolution. Maybe you're using a high DPI screen/4k monitor, and only the last version (8.4, payware, but worth every penny) works fine in that case.

The last freeware portable edition is still available from the authors site, however it is difficult to find it.

The URL to the freeware download page is ...

I agree with CD. This is simply the best capture tool for Windows.

I wish this was open source, so that I could get it up to date with win7 and 64bit. I only got 0.1 alpha to work with, but that's a huge step away from 0.4...
Oh well, still one of my favorite screen capture apps.

"Update 0.4.0: Added support for Windows 98..."
This is even more archaic than MWSnap, which was released in 2002 and at least officially supports Windows XP.
