Video Screenshot Software?!

by rbowen

Can anyone recommend a good, low-cost/no-cost software that I can use to make videos of what I'm doing ... what's showing on my PC's monitor?

I'd like to be able to do things (some, if not all) like: zoom in & out, blur or cover up certain spots (like my account password), insert an arrow, be able to underline or draw a circle around certain things, etc.

  • Try search for Camstudio. It's free and does the trick.

    Camstudio - free
    Jing project under 5 min - free
    Jing project over 5min - 14.95/year
    Camtasia - $200

    Of course Camtasia is the best but Jing is also pretty good. Very easy to use and draw with.

    Best and sharpest screenshot recorder is camtasia, but it is pricey though it does the job. Cheaper alternatives include Jing (limited to 5 minutes for the free version) and Camstudio (free)

      Depending on your future needs, you could also try - online based recorder and will also host the end result video for you too. They have a 15 day free trial available (no payment details needed) then it's $19/month.

    I use Camtasia Studio to record the screen, it has all the things you require as per your post.

    It's easy to use - plenty of tutorial video's out there to learn from; but it's not cheap, butit's the only one you will ever need.

    I remember one time when the higher ups wanted me to record how I actually do my work. They used Camtasia. If I remember correctly, I think they used a free edition. If you really want a good free screen recorder, go for Camstudio.

    Camstudio is freeware, it works.
    Jing is free and good also and has a free upload service. There's a 5 min. limit for the
    free version, upgrade is about $15.
    Camtasia Studio is the best, but close to $300. You can get a 30-day free trial, though.

    Check them out ...

    You can use the free 30-day trial of Camtasia. Or you can use Camstudio, which is, as far as I can remember, free.

    There is another great web-based tool I use - Screencast-o-matic - lets you capture your screen without having to install anything, only Java is needed on your behalf.
