Can you recommend any screen recorder that can capture in the same quality as your screen? I tried OBS, but the quality is poor, and it does not take any modifications I do to the bitrate into consideration. No matter what value I add, it keeps the bitrate low. Any recommendation to find a software that is possible to set up correctly and records at high quality?
I installed ScreenRec as well, but it seems to be it just offers a trial period for free. It records with identical quality as my screen, though.

Your issues with OBS are your own. OBS is as good or as bad as you set it, and I can confirm you can adjust settings to give you a pristine result. There may be other apps that do screen recording in a smooth way more simply, but you will be hard pressed to find a screen recorder with so MANY options, for FREE.
Do what you want, but my recommendation is for you to take another crack at OBS.
OBS is capable of producing great results.
Why your bitrate settings are not being saved is a mystery.
Set your bitrate to something like 10000 and see how that looks.
I use 6-8000 depending on what the end result if for.
VLC player is also very capable of full screen capture without any bells and whistles.

I tried, it simply has no effect, no matter what value I set. It keeps the bitrate around 1500 kbps. Even in simple mode if I select Good or Immaculate quality, the different choices regarding quality has no effect either. Probably, as I remember, for the best quality it creates an avi, but the bitrate is the similar low value.
There must be something wrong with the way you are setting up OBS or a problem with the install, or with your computer.
There is no reason it should be stuck at 1500. I am happily recording up to 10000 with no issues, as are thousands of other users, recording gaming streams to a very high quality.
Please give us screenshots of what you are seeing in OBS settings.
Post screenshots of your settings, and we'll all assist.
There isn't an option to save a recording as an avi either..........

You can use ffmpeg for screen recording too.

Here are some tests and screenshots. On the images you can see my recent settings. I attached what file these settings produce. The bitrate is nowhere near the amount set. I set 25000kbps and if you check the file with mediainfo it shows it is at 1330kbps.
The resulting video is blurry. If I install the software: ScreenRec, it produces a crytal clear video. I am just hesitating to use that software due to some notices about security issues.

I think OBS is one of the most popular, but I don't remember if it's free or not. Most of the time, the quality of the recorders is good, if not, then it's because of the settings probably. Scaling is the process of expanding or shrinking a screen recording to show it in a different size than the original. As a result, screen video loses quality quickly and appears blurry or distorted. This list of screen recorder apps can help you, all of them are very good, I tried them by myself.
