about Taksi Jun 2011

1AVCapture is also an execellent video capture software. You select the region of the screen where the video is playing and record it to AVI or WMV. It works with any codec installed on the PC. It can also record streaming audio to WAV, WMA, or MP3. It can record your favorite games, your webcam or tv tuner, external devices. And it has 20 profiles so that you never have to reconfigure anything.
