    Screen capture software should be the last option in recording streaming videos. If you do care about quality, then try to download or capture streams instead of recording them from screen. There is a huge list of programs that you can use

    Screen recording program is not a good choice for recording a long length video since you have to play through the video all the way for recording. Obviously, this is an inconvenient thing for a busy people like me and while recording you need to care about you activities on desktop not to be recorded. Thus I also backup a program which can record background to cope with online existing videos
