iSpring Free Cam [ https://www.ispringsolutions.com/ispring-free-cam ] and  [https://screencast-o-matic.com/home], they both are pretty much the same, but the difference is their performance. We will split it into PROS and CONS.

CONS: The program aim is to make you buy the premium features because you get all important features in PRO versions such as Watermark removal, longer video duration, scripted recordings, quick edit tools, and more.
