If you have purchased a Pro license, then you must have an account. It is not possible to purchase a license without one.
If you still have access to your account, log in and then use the Change Password option on the Edit Profile page.
Yes. If you have created a company account, we can add extra users to it who will also be able to manage the licenses.
Yes. FlashBack recordings are not tied to a specific edition so can be opened with either FlashBack Pro or FlashBack Express regardless of which one was used to open them.
Frames can only be deleted if you are using FlashBack Pro (the Plus and Express editions do not allow any frame editing)
If you have FlashBack Pro or Plus you can insert one recording into another recording or just join it at the end.
Yes, you can save them to the Annotations tab of the Player’s left side panel so that they can be dragged into other recordings.
As of version 5.43, we have made some changes to simplify adding Zooms to your recordings. This will slightly change how any existing Zoompans that you have added in previous versions will work
This can happen if the video was originally recorded on a mobile device.
If the sound is ‘ahead’ of the video, and reaches the end before the video, you can use the Resynchronise function in FlashBack Player (Pro only) to make the sound and video end at the same point, correcting the sync.
If you are using FlashBack Pro, you can remove noise, such as background ambience or electrical noise from your PC, that has been captured in your recordings.
No. When you crop the image, the resolution is changed and it is not possible to have multiple resolutions used in the same movie.
If the ‘Show webcam window while recording’ option was enabled when the movie was recorded, the webcam window is captured as part of the screen instead of being recorded separately and then layered on to of the screen recording.
There are several methods for selecting a range of frames for editing.
Yes, but only for certain keypresses that would not normally produce any visible output on the screen.
The webcam video will have a fixed position for the entire duration of the movie.

FlashBack only supports static GIFs when using the Insert Image option.
This watermark is displayed when you are using any trial version of FlashBack.
Most export formats that FlashBack supports are pure video formats. In other words, they do not support any interactive objects which are added to them
By default, exported videos will use the same frame rate as the original recording. They can never have a higher frame rate but it can be set to be lower.
The Recorder app will save all recordings as our .fbr format.
To export MP4 files from Flashback that can be used with the HTML <video> tag, specifc settings are required on the MPEG Export Options window.
Usually it is because the option to include sound in the exported file has been disabled.
The first time you export to MP4 using the default settings, FlashBack will download the openh264 codec.
You may have exported the recording at a lower resolution than the original file.
The avi codec that you select can make a big difference to the quality of the exported avi file (and also the size of the file).
FlashBack should run fine on Windows XP and newer. However, we currently only offer support for FlashBack on Windows 7, 8 and 10.
If you need to download FlashBack 1 – 4, you can download the relevant version by doing the following:
If you need to perform a ‘silent’ or unattended install with no user input, you can do that using command line parameters.
FlashBack is only available as a 32 bit app but it will run on both 32 biy and 64 bit Windows.
By default, the first time you run FlashBack each day it will check to see if a new version is available for download. If an update is found, it will be downloaded in the background.
FlashBack is currently only available for Windows PCs.
When you save a recording at the end of a recording session, FlashBack simply remembers where you saved to and will default to that location next time.
While you are recording, FlashBack will need somewhere to temporarily store your recording. By default it will be C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp\FlashBackTemp\.
Your recording will be deleted as soon as you click the Discard button so it is not possible to recover it if you click the Discard button by accident.
The default folder is “BB FlashBack Movies” but you can browse to any drive/folder on your machine, including an external hard disk drive.
No, FlashBack does not have any options to automatically launch on Windows startup.
FlashBack has separate installations for each edition to allow users to install different editions side-by-side on the same PC.
When you next start either FlashBack app, your existing trial licence will automatically be updated to a full licence so you do not need to do anything.
If you need to manage or reset your license, you can do that from your online account.
If the PC that you have installed FlashBack on will never have an internet connection, you can request an offline license from us.
