Official Release: This app has been officially released and can be found here. Below is an outdated/unsupported version of the app.
Description: CamStudio is a free and open source screen recording suite. It includes a screen recorder, video player, advanced video player, and a AVI to SWF video converter.
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.
And if all that wasn't enough, CamStudio also comes with its own Lossless Codec that produces crystal clear results with a much smaller filesize compared with other more popular codecs, like Microsoft Video 1.
You have total control over the output of your video: you can choose to use custom cursors, to record the whole screen or just a section of it and can reduce or increase the quality of the recording depending on if you want smaller videos (for emailing to people, for instance) or you can have "best quality" ones for burning onto CD/DVD.
But all of these features would be worthless if CamStudio wasn't easy to use ... fortunately that's not the case. CamStudio can be learned in a matter of minutes and comes with a comprehensive built-in helpfile, so if you do manage to get stuck, you can simply hit "Help" and get the answers you need.
Takeover: This is a continuation of a project started off by one dude, then passed on to another, but he didn't wanna do it, so now I'm taking over. I made a few changes, fixed a couple bugs and updated the format to 2.0 specifications.
