Record webcam video and edit it

Microsoft Expression Encoder is an application to record what is happening on your screen, your webcam or just a microphone. It is free but lacks advanced options for editing

How many times have you ever wanted to record the screen but do not know what to do? Screenshots can be simply made using PicPick but you'll need something like Microsoft Expression Encoder to make videos.

Microsoft Expression Encoder is subdivided into two distinct applications: one for capture and the other for editing. The Screen Capture tool is a minimal and intuitive tool for recording screen, webcam or audio only. You only need to choose the device and the area to record, the quality and press the red button to record.

Once you register you can edit it with the second section of Microsoft Expression Encoder. On the left side you can preview functions, while the right options are for video encoding. Both are well presented and organized. The only thing lacking is the ability to add effects and save in multiple formats.

Microsoft Expression Encoder is an application to create screencasts easily. It cannot compete with giants such as Final Cut, but is an alternative to software such as Camtasia.


  • Intutive interface
  • Edit webcam footage instantly
  • Plenty of codification options


  • Not many output formats
  • Few effects
