Points to be Noted: 
Like various Screen Recorders, this player is efficient for screen capturing and very user-friendly. But for professional use, better choose official software screen recorders which are available in Google as this didn’t record audio and video simultaneously for some PC’s and Laptops. I’m not assured that this screen recorder is working at its best like other professional Screen recorders. If you tried this, leave us your review on this and let us know better..!
