Screen Recording Software

What is a good software to use for doing screen and voice recordings? That would be awesome if there is a good free one to use. I looked at Camtasia but the $300 price tag is more than I want to spend now since I'll just be dabbling into it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Swarley, here is a link containing various screen recording softwares. Some are free and all have audio recording capabilities.

before getting Camtasia, I used CamStudio for screen captures, which is free and edit with Windows movie maker. for youtube or simple affiliate sites, it is decent, but not really high quality. if you are wanting to get quality for products etc, you need to invest in a quality program like Camtasia and Sony Vega.

I use Audacity for audio recordings like podcasting. its actually really good, and its open source so its free. I know a lot of professional podcasters who use it over some of the high dollar audio software.

Its free, technically easy to use for the basics, with lots of bells and whistles if you are technically competent enough to learn how to use them.

Hey Swarlley,

screencast-o-matic is pretty good. Used it for a college project once. Jing from techsmith also gets the job done for shorter videos :)

Cheers,
Jay

Hi,

Jing is good for quick videos (I think you can get the paid upgrade for longer?)

If you're serious, Camtasia is it though.

Hey Es,

Yeah i think they only have 5 minutes for the free version, but if you're going to use the videos on youtube that's probably 4 minutes too long for the usual viewer's attention span ;-D

First off, that hilarious

Also, you guys are freaking awesome!

Thanks for all the recommendations. I haven't tried them all yet but I'm working on it. It looks like I'm going to have to buy Camtasia at some point if I want to do high quality videos.

Again, thank you all for the great suggestions.

Hey Chris,

Yeah. Thought you'd like that one ;)

Camtasia is definitely worth the investment. Started using it myself.

Cheers and have an awesome Weekend,

Mark has a way of making his videos very crisp and refreshing and easy to watch. What is he using to get the professional look.

Kindest regards,
