WM Recorder can capture whatever is being displayed on your computer screen. This way, you can use it to record gaming experiences, tutorials, as well as streaming video and audio. Likewise, it can download media in batches from well-known video-sharing sites, such as YouTube. Fortunately, it supports capturing various media formats. One of its most valuable assets is that it can record in a background mode.

The application comes as a bundle of various tools, including Screen Recorder, Stream Recorder, WM Audio and WM Converter. I find this particularly confusing as frequent switching between these tools becomes necessary. However, I have to agree that some users may feel more comfortable if they do not have to deal with all the features from a single window.

In general, WM Recorder falls short of the expectations users may have of an application of its type. One of its biggest limitations is the lack of editing tools. Moreover, the quality of the resulting video is inferior to that of the program’s competitors.
