Version 2.7 Build r316
  • Release Date: Feb 5, 2013
  • Download(s):
  • CamStudio not displaying/able to use all video codecs on system (Partially done - some Microsoft WM codecs are still inaccessable but this is being worked on)
  • Sometimes the CamStudio Lossless codec is not showing in codec list in Vista and Win7 (A new 64-bit compatible codec installer has been created to remove incorrectly installed codecs and reinstall it)
  • Keyboard shortcut option for Autopan with on-screen notification
  • CamStudio will now inform you when a new update is available
  • We've altered the default save location from 'Use Windows Temporary Directory' to a Videos folder in 'Use Application Installed Diretory' so it's easier to find
  • Removed link to CamStudio Blog from Help menu
  • Made Auto Adjust enabled by default with a new second checkbox (also enabled by default) above the slider bar locking the Capture Frame rate and Playback rate to only factors of 1000. Added a warning dialog when "Locking" checkbox deselected.
    Leaving the "Lock" checkbox on will help to stop common audio/video desync issues

    Keyframes every: 100 frames
    Capture Every: 50 millseconds
    Playback: 20 frames per second
Version 2.6 Beta r294
  • Release Date: Oct 28, 2010
  • Download(s):
  • Huge step in release number sequence. Caused because many new nice features can be expected soon.

    Nice things like zooming, showing key combinations pressed and/or left,middle and right mouse identification on screen.
  • This release contains only a few small fixes.
    • Region 'Window' and'Select Screen' in case of multiple screens now calculate the pixels correct either.
    • Temporally and final files are now created in the directory you have specified in "Directory for recording"
    • Log file ....xnote.txt is renamed to ....txt and shows now besides xnote information also the version and release number of the executable.
    • Inside the code 'Playerplus.exe' is now invoked instead of 'Playplus.exe'. So it will startup. (My personal opinion; Don't use it at all. On can better use player.exe or use local player.)
Version 2.6 Beta r273
  • Release Date: Oct 10, 2010
  • Download(s):
  • Camstudio v2.6, release 272/273:
    • Fixed a memoryleak that caused that made Camstudio crashed after 40-50 minutes of recording.
    • Redesigned the region calculation routines.
      • The same procedure is now applicable for all sizing calculations.
      • The area you define in regions is the area that will be recorded. No shift in position or losing rows or columns.
      • Size of the region is now displayed correctly in the progress monitoring window.
      • Size of the recording is now equal to the size as displayed the progress monitoring window.
  • Camstudio v2.6, release 270:
    • Fixed how Camstudio treated 'TimeDelayInMilliSecs'. An postive value now ,means that time is added instead of subtracted.
  • Camstudio v2.6, release 269:
    • Add manifest files to prevent Microsoft 'Side by side' errors during first usage.
    • Mostly this can be solved with installing the"MIcrosoft
    • Visual C++ 2008 Redistriutable package for 32 bits"
    • Reports showed that not all issies are solved.
