Today I sat down to try and find a piece of software to record screen captures. I needed to record some screen actions for a client as a quick tutorial. I had a couple of options; Set up a video camera and record the screen (Messy!) or find a freebie!
I searched the ‘net and found this: http://camstudio.org. I downloaded the program and had it working within 5 minutes. The video file was created and emailed within 10 minutes. So much easier and cleaner than any other options. While the program isn’t exactly packed with features it works, and it works well.
The program is totally free to use, unless you wish to offer the author a donation! If I use this software for anything else, a donation will be sent.
