Freeware of the week: ZScreen Capture

September 11, 2007 at 8:25 am 3 comments

This week’s freeware pick is called ZScreen. ZScreen is a free screen capture program that allows for region/window/full-screen screenshots. It can FTP screenshots and put the URL in your clipboard in a single keystroke. It supports automatic custom naming conventions with variables. It can also interface with image editing software.

    It might be a great application (I haven’t tried it yet), but it’s been done a zillion times — and now with more over-abstraction (read: reliance on C# and Microsoft .NET 2.0), thus more overhead.

    I’d find this software useful if it offered a DirectShow and WDM-capable capture driver — something identical to VHScrCap (which is a fantastic program, but has some incredibly bizarre bugs; the author doesn’t seem to be updating it any more…), but with screen capture capability as well.

    The only other alternative I can think of is called VCam from e2eSoft, which is a great program, except for two major complaints: 1) it’s commercial (and expensive), and 2) the registration code given to you by e2eSoft is similar in concept to that of Windows Activation in that it creates a unique ID code based on what hardware you have in your PC at the time (read: upgrade RAM, change a video card, swap motherboard, and you have to mail e2eSoft *every time* asking them for a new registration code.)

    Such is the way of Windows it seems…

    I really agree with what you say. In addition, ZScreen is more suitable for experienced users rather than starters. I have never heard of VCam. I might try it later on.

    Well, from a pretty novice users experience, I’ve downloaded it and am using it regularly. There is nothing to be weary of. As far as overhead, it’s negligible. As for a simple user experience, the documentation provided by the developer is more than sufficient. As for this being done a million times over, I doubt this highly. Maybe a few, and are they open source? Free? So well supported?

    This is great software and I am very much grateful to the developer as it’s filled a need I’ve had for a long time. Keep up the good work and I look forward to any future releases. Above all else, Keep programming!
