Bandicam updated - Version: V (12/24/2012)
Thank you for voting Bandicam
Release date: Early 2009
Record Everything (Game + PC screen) and save it as AVI files.

Bandicam is the best Game, Video, and Desktop Screen recording software.
You can record Steam, WoW, Minecraft, iTunes, YouTube, PowerPoint, Webcam, Skype, Video chatting, Streaming video and desktop screen without lagging.

Bandicam compresses the recording video when recording and uses much lower CPU/GPU/RAM usage. As a result, it has less lag and you can save your HDD and CPU.

Bandicam displays FPS numbers in the corner of the screen while it is active in the 'DirectX/OpenGL window' mode. It also can record video at resolutions up to 2560*1600 in high quality (1080p full HD video can be made).

You can upload the recorded file to YouTube without converting because the recorded file size is extremely smaller than other software (1/5 ~ 1/20 video size).

Bandicam supports AVI 2.0, the maximum file size is unlimited as long as the local Hard Disk has free space available (Over 24 hours recording can be possible).

The free version of Bandicam is available on!

Bandicam is an amazing screen and audio recorder! But i don't see a point in it being realeased on steam. I understand it could be possible to share recordings. But YouTube Does that best

Bought it on the site ages ago. Love that version, but experienced problems handing Bandisoft more money when I wanted more access points. Right now PayPal is the only option, which right now I seem to be having problems with. Would love to give Steam money for its role as an alternative. Also, the premise of a portable account based access is pretty keen. Please! Why won't you take my money?

So what's the story here? Has there been any updates regarding Bandicam being released on Steam?
