Why should you choose RecTrace to record screen video?

Many free video recorders will add their branding to your clips or let you record only a limited number of videos before payment.
With RecTrace, you can start recording right away even if you don’t have a Cincopa account.

Your video will get uploaded to a feed, and you will be able to share the video with anyone online via a direct link.
The video starts recording instantly after you click on the RecTrace button in your browser.
If you want to add video to your website or blog, you should log in to Cincopa, open your assets, and grab an embed code from there.
You can track video performance with advanced video analytics.


Record vs. Library tab

Once you’ve successfully installed RecTrace, you’ll find its icon at the top right of your browser.

If you click on it, you’ll be presented with the option of clicking on two tabs:
Record or library.

In the Record tab, you can choose exactly how you want to record yourself. You can choose to record yourself via webcam (by clicking on the webcam), record your screen exclusively, or combine both screen and webcam recordings.

You can dictate whether or not the recording will continue if you navigate between tabs and decide whether you want your computer to record while its audio is muted.

All recordings will be automatically uploaded to your Cincopa account.

Clicking on the Library tab will grant you immediate access to any and all videos you have in your Cincopa account.
You will be able to send a link to a specific video, open the video in a new tab or delete it, if you choose to.

This can prove incredibly important for sales reps who need to access videos quickly.

You can take this a step further if you have access to more than one Cincopa account. All you’ll have to do is navigate to and click on Switch Account:
