I just like the simplicity of Electron Display screen Recorder, I will give it that however hotkeys would’ve been characteristic to have. However the primary situation with it’s that this system tends to be intensive on assets, it consumed someplace between 300-400MB of RAM when capturing movies, and it spiked to larger numbers when saving the content material. I’ve examined many Electron primarily based purposes not too long ago, and none of them have been this heavy. It is determined by the supply too, I observed that the display screen recorder hit practically 1GB after I tried to file streaming movies. It dropped to lower than 100 MB when the duty was accomplished, and stayed within the 70s when idle within the background.
Electron Display screen Recorder doesn’t assist audio recording, which implies it isn’t choice for capturing video games, streaming content material, and many others. However, a remark from the developer on a GitHub situation hints that audio assist might be added sooner or later, together with webcam recording.

This system is open supply, it’s out there for Home windows, Linux, Mac, and is available in an optionally available moveable model.
