Default Bandicam, What is it capable of?

Bandicam, What is it capable of?
Is anyone here familiar with it?

I was wondering if it is capable of capturing the screen and audio of a computer,verbatim under any and all circumstances? what I mean by this is dose it only lock on to certain kinds of "streams" like a video game that is synced up with bandicamcan or can it be as simple as hitting record and capturing your computer's full screen and audio? If not ,what screen and audio capture program can?

The reason I ask this is because recently I noticed a lot of youtube videos wont download ,plus ,as of now most of the video I like won't download in 720p anymore.

"Savefrome.net" and the other downloader sites may patch these problems up in the future as they often do , but its got me thinking ,is there a "end all be all" way to copy youtube videos? It's so frustrating when youtube change the codec or flash player or whatever and you cant download the videos you want.

P.S.
Reasons for downloading.
1-Some people may need to download controversial videos before they are banned or censored so that they can archive them or re-upload them on othere platforms.

2-Some people may need to download videos for fair-use reasons.

3-Collecting video for your personal offline use so that you can make backup copies and archives for offline enjoyment or edit the videos as you please.

The user "Celery" said on another thread ("Bummer. I have DVDs full of YouTube videos spanning years. Pisses me off when they stopped it.
They're mostly clips but I have concerts, music videos, and movies.
I'm looking into screen streaming capture.")

[This is what got me thinking about the screen and audio capture concept]

I think this thread already exists. Anyways, try youtube-dl. It's a command line utility, but it does about everything.

Thanks for the replies. I appreciate all of you and your helpfulness!

In this thred I was hoping the lurn about bandicam and screen capture programs.
I do know there's a similar tread to this one, However in this thread I was wondering more about "Bandicam" and if Bandicam could be used to record youtube in full screen. If anyone knows about Bandicam your input would be appreciated.


P.S.
As an aside. Regarding downloading youtube videos and those interested in the subject,
As of this date I have noticed lots of 720p Youtube videos wont download in 720p anymore. This all started around September,15,2018. I have tested many downloader sites and attempted to download videos that in the past would download in 720p but now they wont. (Like videos I downloaded a week and a half ago in 720p will now only show up on the downloder sites in 360p or lower and I tried multiple downloader sites)

Interestingly.
I have noticed a pattern, It seems "video vlog" style youtube videos that individual youtubers made with their phone camera or web cam will still download in 720p but almost all music videos wont. (It's very bizarre you guys should try it! It has me wondering if it's some intentional countermeasure or just a coincidence?

@AMD_man
"youtube-dl" is something I will look into but I may need to learn how to do command lines first, plus im not confident at this point if even "youtube-dl" can download 720p clones of youtube music videos ,because all of the other downloader site are having trouble with 720p music videos at the moment, it will need to be tested.

Bandicam is freemium software (maybe more like crippleware, I think it adds watermarks and such). You can just test it. As for youtube-dl, I can test it for you and then you can decide if it's worth the trouble learning it or not.

I tried Bandicam about a year ago to record a demo of a software project for a client. It can record what's shown on the screen but also will record all mouse/keyboard actions and ambient noise.


For what you are wanting to do, I personally use a FireFox add-in called Ant-downloader. It works by streaming the content directly and recording the stream to disk.


As I said, I use it with FireFox but it is also available for IE, Chrome and Opera browsers. https://www.ant.com/video-downloader

Yeah there are dozens of ways to download YouTube videos. It all comes down to personal preference.

The only reason I use youtube-dl is because I don't need to install anything, there is no need for a third party to process the video and the incredible amount of flexibility it offers.

There are simpler ways, I imagine not as flexible, but if your needs are simple you'll be better off going for other alternatives. I'll check the video quality anyways and let you know as soon as I can.

The reason I use the Ant downloader is because it works on ALL video streaming sites. It's not specific to YouTube. I rarely ever want to save any YouTube videos.

youtube-dl works on a ton of sites as well. The name is misleading, but it does.

I think the simple answer is yes, the software would work for saving you tube videos.
But, there is the water mark issue,
The mouse capture issue
The face that it records the stream, not the video, (so it will record any buffering too.)

It's a solution, just not a great one.

I forgot about the watermark. I guess you could pay to have it removed, but as root said, there are better ways to do this.

Default Re: Bandicam, What is it capable of?

(Update)

I downloaded bandicam to a windows xp computer with mixed results. I copied part of a youtube video in fullscreen but when I played it back with the vlc player the audio was so low it was whisper quiet even at 200% volume (and it sounded bad). Plus I made the youtube video full screen and hit record but when I played it back on vlc it wasn't completely full screen ,even though the youtube video was clicked to full screen when I recorded it. (Its an old crummy computer I tested it with so when I hit record it made the youtube videos stutter even more than they allready did on that computer.)

Questions:
It was a first try but I'm going to need to do some more trial and error to get desired results. I'm wondering why the recording had such low volume? I had the volume up when I recorded. The mp4 recording was more than whisper quiet and did sound like i'd had some ambient noise also.

I tested bandicam on the bad computer because I wasn't sure of it. If I download bandicam to my good xp laptop will I be able to completely remove it later if it turns out not to be useful? Is it safe?


P.S.
@ AMD_man. Thanks
I want to start testing youtube-dl in the up and coming days when I get the chance to sit down and figure it out ,it looks promising. I'm actually eager to test it.
However,
Im still concerned about this baffling new development about how it seems that all "music videos" and "live performances" universally wont download in mp4 720p anmore, they will olny download in mp4 360p or lower ,while at the same time all other types of videos will as of now still show up in 720p.


I know youtube's codec is ever changing and that every 4 months or so some or all youtube video become un-downloadable for a short while until all the downloader sites update to match the new codec,then all the youtube videos become downloadable again.

(However ,In the three years of using downloader sites I would say these recent problems are unprecedented).
What baffles me is, how are "music videos" and "live music performances" being singled out in this way? Is it intentional or is it an unfortunate coincidence and side effect of something else?
For example (on the various downloader sites) all "pewdiepie" videos will have the "720p mp4" option show up among all the other qualities options, but when I drop the URL of Eminem's "Rap God" (or any music video) in to any of the downloader sites only "360p mp4" and lower will show up in the download options.

Theories:
1- Maybe all youtube videos registered with copyright aren't recognised by the downloader sites in 720p any more fore some reason. If so why is only 720p blocked? Wouldn't they want to block all forms of download?

2- Maybe "music videos" and "live music performances" tend to be uploaded in a format that has now become un-downloadable for some reason? However, this one seem kinda unlikely to me.

I fear that even youtube-dl is suffering the same problems as all the other downloader sites

Here are two HD youtube music videos that I've successfully downloaded in "720p mp4" in the past but now (as of about 9,15,2018) are not downloadable in that form anymore ,only "360p mp4 or lower" now.

(plus here is the site I download with https://en.savefrom.net/1-how-to-dow...youtube-video/ and here another for comparison https://y2mate.com/

(Just drop the youtube videos URL into the field, if it doesn't work at first try multiple times,you do not need to actuliy dowload the video to do this test if you dont want to. Just drop the diferant video URLs into savfrom.net and compare what qualitys are avalible for the music videos v.s. non-music videos).

I challenge anyone to download "720p mp4" clones of these two music videos or any music videos for that matter.lol (These are two HD videos I have downloaded in 720p mp4 weeks ago, but now they olny show up for download in 360p mp4, 244p 3gp and 144p 3gp on savefrome.net)




Now try to download any "non-music videos" like "pewdiepie' videos or "saturday night live" videos or any thing ,you will find that they easily show up for download on sites like "savefrom net" in "720p mp4"

I am hoping I can use youtube-dl to select specifically "mp4 720p" to download youtube music videos. I am eager to test youtube-dl to see if it is immune to the new problem or not.

Both videos apparently can't be downloaded at anything over 360p with audio. Weird enough, they can be downloaded at 720p and 1080p but without audio. Here:

Using Ant down loader, I was able to download the top video at 720p and the bottom video at 1080p.

I tried this myself. It seems this app downloads both audio and video sepparately and then puts them together.

I can download the first one at 720 with audio and the second at 1024 with audio.

I knew it! I wonder what's causing this? Or theoretically could be causing this? What an internet mystery!
(what are you guys theories?)

@strollin
Ant downloader sounds like a promising solution. where do you get the version that you used? Do you put it on google browser of firefox or does it go to your computer?


@AMD_man
So you noticed the Ant downloader "Downloads both audio and video sepparately and then puts them together."

You are smart to notice this!

Questions:
when you downloaded from Ant, was the audio in sync with the video? what kind of file was it? an mp4 or other?


@Celery
You said "I can download the first one at 720 with audio and the second at 1024 with audio."
Witch downloader did you use? the sam as strollin?

As allways. Thanks for your replies

It could be something Google is trying to do to prevent people from downloading their videos (at high resolution at least). They probably noticed most people use websites for this. If they separate video from audio, the website would have to download bot files to their server, put them together and then send you the file. This would mean the server needs to use their own processors and memory to let you download in higher qualities. Also, it would be them who would be sending you the file, not YouTube, and thus you'd be wasting their bandwidth, not just Google's. It would be more expensive for websites that way. As a result, they would stop offering to download at high resolutions. This is why local downloaders don't have an issue with this. It's using your own processing power and memory, and still using Google's servers to download. (All just a theory though.)

About the file format, I already uninstalled everything, but I'm 99% sure it was MP4.

To download, simply go to the Firefox add-on "store" and search for it. Once you installed, you'll be prompted to install the Windows program and, if you say yes, you'll be taken to the download site. Install, reboot your PC (or just sign out) and start downloading.

However, since this thread is borderline illegal, read YouTube's TOS before moving forward.

Your theory sounds very realistic given what we know. I dont know to much about computers ,so insights like these are interesting and helpful. Thanks!

(Regarding Ant and youtube)
Are you saying "Ant" is even more dangerous than the sites Ive used in the past? Or are you just warning in general given the subject?
