System Requirements

Saucedacity runs on the following:

  • Windows 7 or later (32 or 64 bit)
  • macOS 10.12 or later
  • Ubuntu 20.04 or later (or any equivalent distro)

Note that you will need a CPU with SSE2 support. This is only an issue if you are planning to run Saucedacity on older hardware.

Note on Windows 7 Support

Windows 7 extended support ended on January 14, 2020. This means that Windows 7 will no longer receive any updates of any kind.

In response to this situation, Saucedacity will continue to support Windows 7 until either Saucedacity/Tenacity 2.0 (the planned migraiton to Qt) or until Visual Studio drops support for Windows 7 targets. We will fix bugs and provide updates for Windows 7 users for the forseeable future. This policy will also apply to Windwos 8/8.1 users.


We welcome all kinds of contributions! We have some tasks that don’t involve coding, but we also accept contributions to a wide-range of things in Saucedacity.
