This has nothing to do with blogging, it is a question about a piece of software (from appearance anyways). Moved to Computer Support & Operating Systems :)

ScreenCamera, best stuff you can buy.

If you download the trial and buy it within 24 hours of using it (I think), you get it half price!! That's like $16 or something, great value, great software and a great developer.

There is a free product called CamStudio. I've been using it for a while and it seems enough for my needs. It records the screen capture in AVI.

I have seen a few friends using a program called Fraps.But I think the above answers are better solutions. :)

Crap... I forgot to mention. ScreenCamera is the "best" software for me because it also has the ability to put your webcam in there at the same time, which is great when demonstrating stuff, also a customisable recording rate.

It's also great because, as well as recording to AVI/Screenshots, it also streams through a WebCam driver - Which is another reason it seriously appealed to me (live sites, MSN, Skype, etc.).

Fraps is great, but it's only for Direct(2/3)D/OpenGL powered applications, it doesn't capture the whole desktop.

I've used that as well, and it works fine for basic needs.

The latest one I've been using is by TechSmith . They have a set of products, with free versions and professional ones.
The free version of Jing is really quite good. It's got the best setup for quickly capturing images or video that I've seen yet, and makes it really easy to just save the capture or upload it to their free online service to generate a quick link you can share.
Camtasia Studio is kind of their full service app for editing the videos, and is pretty good as well. If you have a different editor you'd like instead though, you are free to import anything you capture with Jing to that program.
