When you want to create a tutorial or simply a school presentation, using a specialized software solution to capture your PC's screen can save you a lot of wasted time and energy.

Coolcam is one such utility, and it does not even need any expert skills to be operated efficiently.

First and foremost, you need to specify the type of contents you want to create, be it video, audio or graphic. Additionally, you can also broadcast a live stream (you do need to enter the corresponding RMTP address and live code).

If you are looking to create a video recording, you can capture either the webcam or the computer screen. If you go for the latter, you can define the area you are interested in (you can choose from full screen or a custom window size).

On the other side, if you need an audio recording, you can specify if you prefer the microphone stream or the sounds from your system's audio card.

Coolcam packs several settings you can modify to tailor the output to your necessities. You can start with selecting the resolution, the frame and the codec rates.

As you would expect, you get full control over the destination format, and you can choose between MP4, FLV, MOV, or MKV.

Moreover, you can decide if the mouse cursor should be visible or hidden. The floating window can automatically hide, it can be always visible or it be out of sight for good.

All in all, Coolcam can help you generate a wide range of projects that involve recording your webcam, your screen or your audio stream. You can even add text messages or pictures to your captures, to personalize them even more.
