what do you use for screen recording or whatever its called with the sounds as well. i use fraps, but thats only for games and videos. the video files for it are massive though, and for some reason, dont come in 16:9 for me. i was recording a 3 minute video from a video file and it totalled almost 1.4 gb.

is there anything else that does this but not as big and it would be cool if it was hd and recorded everything, not just games as well.

thanks

Only used camstudio a couple of times.

For my own recordings I use paid software, Camtasia Studio (not that I do a lot)

I used the free Camstudio2 for recording GoogleEarth fly-overs in XP. (can post the settings if you like)

Camstudio makes huge files per minute and I couldn't view them. Had to drag them into SUPER to convert them into something manageable. Quality was very good

Haven't used it recently, but Tunebite7 did a fine job. Not free though.

Camtasia has very good quality but I'm not sure if it can capture games well (if that's what you want)

For everything else it will work fine.

Hmm - interesting. I see they also make a product converting Powerpoint to video - eg, for showing your ppt on a Mac

Camtasia Studio is good, otherwise Windows Media Encoder (freeware from Microsoft) works remarkably well.
