      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.

      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.
