Why not try other "free" screen recorders?
Yes, of course, you can try other screen recorders that say they are free, but the problem is that they put a time limit or recording limit or watermarks to your videos, which is not the case with Vmaker.
Also, some of the free screen recorders store your files in your local system that can clog up your system memory.
Though there is a free screen recorder known as OBS, which is literally free, it isn't easy to learn its functionalities if you are a new user.
Okay, then what about the screen recorders that come default with the computer system?
Mac systems come with a Quicktime player, which allows you to screen record videos. It's a basic screen recorder, with an easy-to-use interface but it has low quality sounding issues and gets crashed for no reason.
Windows too comes with a free screen recorder, well only Windows 10 does. Again it's a simple and easy-to-use screen recorder, but it has some many limitations. To start with, you can only record 2 hours of videos, you cannot record your entire screen, and much more.
