How annoying is this? Everything goes well in capturing PPT presentations--video starts to play then goes black. Fed up with struggling with this and really need to get it to worl!

Make sure you are running your program with administrative rights. Have it allowed in your screen.

1. Go to Settings, and make sure you are using the MPEG-2 video format. Also, you may want to click on "Recommended Settings" at the top and select the most fitting option according to your pc configuration.

2. Try recording from a smaller video window by resizing your player to 1/4 of your screen, or no more than 480x640 pixels. This won't affect the video quality (since video is scaled UP from smaller sizes to fit a full-screen picture). This will require less computer power to capture, which will make for smoother videos.
