OpenGL is not a new standard in the world of gaming because many applications and games have used this graphics rendering engine to play content on a screen. Bandicam, is a recording software that allows you to record any game based on this rendering engine, any video or just the desktop screen of your computer with the click of a button.
It allows recording a desired portion of your screen or any program that uses DirectX or OpenGL standards for graphics rendering and processing. Some of the highlights are as follows.
- It can record games like WOW, Minecraft, the webcam video and the desktop.
- It supports four formats: Xvid, MPEG-4, MJPEG and H.264 codecs. There is audio support for MPEG-1 and PCM.
Hardware Accelerated Video Encoder
H.264 can be hardware accelerated using all proprietary standards like CUDA used by NVIDIA graphics cards, Intel Quick Sync and AMD APP. This helps you to record videos or games that run frames at high frame rate. Usual recording software cannot do more than 30 fps, but many times while recording any live content that your desktop screen is playing, hardware acceleration helps to make the job seamless and easy.
Bandicam allows you to continuously record any motion on your screen upto 24 hours owing to its Auto Complete Function.
- You can also record 4K Ultra HD videos at ease without any lag or memory issues. You can record and convert files on the go because of its hardware acceleration technique.
Similarly, you can keep downloading videos from YouTube and simultaneously convert it. So, finally, when you download a video at a low resolution, doing it through Bandicam will result it into a 720p video at the end. It allows you to create files at smaller size than other similar software because it not only converts between formats, but also use its superior compression algorithms to maintain or improve the compression without any loss.
Hence, ultimately you have a powerful tool to capture videos of any source, whether a game of a flash program that leverages OpenGL or DirectX. This gives you better quality and smaller sized output. It has inbuilt conversion and compression too. It is easy on your CPU because it also leverages the graphics card on your computer to run its tasks. Thus, overall, it is one of the best recording software in the market.
