In this tip, we create a customized screen recorder using C#.NET.
At work, we wanted a screen recorder to record the procedure. Unfortunately, we don't have any screen recorder. So I developed a screen recorder in C# to record our screen.
Using the Code
At first, create a source and install
Accord.Video.FFMPEG from nuget library.
Screen recorder is created by a timer and
First of all, initialize a timer control and assign properties to the control. Then, create a
tick event to that timer .
timer1 = new Timer();
timer1.Interval = 20;
timer1.Tick += timer1_Tick;
vf = new VideoFileWriter();
vf.Open("Exported_Video.avi", 800, 600, 25, VideoCodec.MPEG4, 1000000);
Create a start button to start the
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
timer tick event, create a bitmap image from the size of
VideoFileWriter and capture screen and write it to bitmap image. Then, write the image to
private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
bp = new Bitmap(800, 600);
gr = Graphics.FromImage(bp);
gr.CopyFromScreen(0, 0, 0, 0, new Size(bp.Width, bp.Height));
pictureBox1.Image = bp;
pictureBox1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage;
stop button to
timer and save the file.
private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
