      OBS Studio vs Captura opinions
      Almost everyone thinks OBS Studio is a great alternative to Captura.
      POX Great software if you're looking for an alternative to Captura that also works on macOS and Linux. The main difference is that you can also stream videos with OBS while Captura can only record your screen.

      POX The best alternative if you're using Linux. But, if you're looking for a screen recorder that can also stream, you should take a look at OBS (Open Broadcaster Software).

      POX Great little screen recorder for Linux. It has a bit fewer features compared to Captura and SimpleScreenRecorder but it's enough for most people.

      POX Great screen recorder for macOS. It's built with Electron, so the app is a little heavy, but the user interface is clean and the app is complete and easy to use.

      Discontinued

      The project seems to be no longer developed. Last version, 2.7 r316, released in May 2015, can be still downloaded from SourceForge.

      Warning

      As described on VirusTotal comment (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/1ddb733efb11769a05cc735d555e9a4df92c4cdf29fa47ea3864e57e67dcf884/analysis/1411383540/): if you download CamStudio from SourceForge.net, the VirusTotal results are 0/53. After installing this SF version, it immediately says that there is an update available. When the link is clicked, it takes you to camstudio.org, which has a zip file that, scanned with VirusTotal, gives you 15/53 result. So do NOT download and install the "update": it's a malware. Installer as of 09/22/2014.
