Free Streaming Video Software - Screen Recorder

For a particular task, I needed to capture a sequence of screen clicks. I decided to "google" for an opensource screen recorder. After a brief search, I found and tried a few but CamStudio's freeware application seemed to fit the bill.

Here is some more information on CamStudio's per their website:

What is CamStudio - Free Streaming Video Desktop Recording Software?

CamStudio is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs)

Here are just a few ways you can use this software:

-You can use it to create demonstration videos for any software program
-Or how about creating a set of videos answering your most frequently asked questions?
-You can create video tutorials for school or college class
-You can use it to record a recurring problem with your computer so you can show technical support people
-You can use it to create video-based information products you can sell
-You can even use it to record new tricks and techniques you discover on your favorite software program, before you forget them
