    I'm looking for a screen recorder so I can make some video tutorials for IPBAdmin. Anyone have any suggestions on any?

    CamStudio is a free one I've used in the past.

    I just downloaded it to test it out. Going to do a few tests with it and see how it works out for making video tutorials with audio.

    This one?
    CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software

    Does this mean it will accept text and translate to audio?


    Don't like the sound of your voice? No problem.

    CamStudio can also add high-quality, anti-aliased (no jagged edges) screen captions to your recordings in seconds and with the unique Video Annotation feature you can even personalise your videos by including a webcam movie of yourself "picture-in-picture" over your desktop.

    :D


    I never heard of MS Sam and I actually went and checked it out, I was hoping for something a bit more sophisticated.

    Just a heads up to save people time. The default is a rather small window to record things. The option to make that bigger is under 'Region' and not Options -> video options.

    I wasted 5 minutes on that. Except for recording audio (my computers setup issue) it seems to work great!

    I use screen recorder Democreator to create video fro my blog and YouTube channel. I think it's also good to site admin if they want to make some introductory videos for their sites.

    Not sure if it's a bit late to reply but I use SnagIt. It's a video recorder software along with the ability to capture images (screenshot) either by a scrolling webpage, certain region, or the region of the window.

    It appears to be focused on the image, not screen cast market?
