      OBS Studio vs SimpleScreenRecorder opinions
      Almost everyone thinks OBS Studio is a great alternative to SimpleScreenRecorder.
      OBS is a high-quality streaming/recording software because of its lack of watermarks being plastered across the record. OBS is a little difficult to use but it is worth it in its overall product. Fraps is equally as good in my opinion.

      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.
