A tool for stealthy recording screen videos

I am looking for a tool to capture user’s screen in form of videos (not screenshots), but I don’t want the user to find it out that I’m recording the screen. Something like BB FlashBack, but not displaying the program’s icon in tray. I want to install it on Windows Server 2016. I prefer freemiums or something allowing for purchasing an academic license (I want the software for an academic project), but if the price is reasonable, I guess I can manage that. The two features I’m looking for are: Being able to be passed on to the background. I don’t want it to appear even in tray since that would cause problems in my research settings. I need it to record videos. I’m not looking for capturing screenshots.

Get OBS and hide the tray icon by

a) Windows way as mentioned in comments or b) Hiding trough OBS settings.

OBS is compatible with lots of things, so I heavily recommend it, tough I can’t test if it works with Windows Server 2016.
