You probably sometimes spend hours explaining to someone, over the internet how to do something. Instead of typing at people, you can create screen recordings for them and shown them what you´re talking about.. Especially if you have your own site and write tutorials, then it´s very useful to create video tutorials. For that you need a screen recorder.I´ve tested a few free screen recorder and make a list of the best.
Cam Studio is easy to use, small size , pretty good screen quality and can record your screen session to .avi files or to .swf . For sure, the best free screen recorder, at least by my opinion.
Here is a video recorded with CamStudio, check it out:
Wink offer a lot of options ( add image , audio,textbox…it´s something like windows movie maker that can record screen), but has few limitation; you can record the screen only to .swf, also is complicated to use
Jing is simple application that can capture video and image. Unfortunately, record only to swf. files.
