Frequently Asked Questions

Technical Questions

No, current version of JxCapture does not support streaming.

No, there is no such more in JxCapture product yet. This is the planned feature for one of the next versions.

No, capturing the contents of a minimized window is not possible.

Yes, JxCapture provides the support of these platforms. However, in order to enable video capturing ability in JxCapture, you may need to enable “Media Foundation” and "Desktop Experience" features on those platforms correspondingly.

In fact capturing of the scrollable window contents greatly depends on an application itself, so there is no such utility available in JxCapture.

Licensing Questions

Our licensing is based on versions of JxCapture. Having purchased the licence for our product you get the right to use the current major version of the product.

Runtime Licence is provided free of charge.

Major and minor version upgrades issued during your active Standard Support subscription period are free of charge. Upon expiration of the Standard Support subscription you can renew it with a 25% discount from the actual licence price.

You only need to purchase 2 licences. We licence our library by the number of people who write code using our library.

You can distribute unlimited number of copies of your product with our library enclosed.

You may want to purchase a Project licence, which is cost-effective in case there are 3 and more developers on the team. The Project licence is bound to a single project you do, but it allows any number of developers in your company to work with our library.

Project Licence is bound to your project via a fully-qualified class name. A fully-qualified name for a class is the package name followed by the class name, separated by a period (.). For example: com.mycompany.myproduct.MyClass

This can be any class of your application. The only requirement is that it should be included into your Java application class path.

When we say “project” we have in mind one product of your company including your future product versions or potential derivative works based on your product.

The Project licence is tied to one project only.

The best solution would be to purchase the Company–wide licence, which covers any number developers and projects in one company.

Upon the licence purchase you will receive a licence archive with two types of JAR files: development.jar and runtime.jar. Development.jar is intended to be used in the development process. Runtime.jar is to be used for distribution of your software with JxCapture enclosed.

Yes, you can purchase JxCapture Source Code Licence; it is provided on a per developer basis. Please contact our sales team if you are interested in this option.

If you are doing an open source or academic project, you can apply to get a free licence. Please submit a request via Open Source or Academic tab on the evaluation form.
