Hi, I'm the developer of ShareX which is an open source screen capturing and sharing software.
We are developing this software for the last 7 years (It was called ZScreen/ZUploader before).
It can upload any type of file to more than 40 hosts including your own host using custom uploader or FTP and can shorten and share URLs.
It has many capture methods and also supports screen recording (FFmpeg or GIF).
After capturing a screenshot, it can automatically add image effects like watermark (It is enabled by default so you can disable it), open image in Greenshot image editor, save to file, upload to host etc.
There are also small tools like color picker, DNS changer, hash check, QR code, ruler etc.
Its settings are highly customizable. For example every hotkey can have its own settings which is called workflow.
There are far more features but it is difficult to write all of them here and people mainly won't like reading a wall of text :)
You can find more info about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ShareX

Hi... I'm trying to use ShareX to record the screen using command line.
First I open ShareX in portable mode with
ShareX.exe -portable
to configure the video codec, fps and other stuff, and it works just fine with the following command

ShareX.exe -portable -silent -ScreenRecorder -AutoClose "d:/temp/record.mp4"
This works fine except the output file path, it always records on the folder and with the pattern specified in settings. How can I set the output file by command line?

Also I'd like to know if it is possible to avoid the area selection before the record begins, I want to record the whole screen automatically without user interaction.

and thanks for this awesome piece of software!

I suggest you to use FFmpeg CLI directly so you would have full control on it. ShareX using that in background.
