I started wanting a screen video capture that will record my actions and audio input from my microphone. After using the wrong programs to record myself using graphic editing applications and giving tutorials, I ended up wasting a lot of my time (around 5 hours). So in order to save some others from headaches I wanted to post my best finding.
video output set to AVI but can be changed to WMV. Quality is what can be expected for a free program and matches that of the other free contenders. The download and install took less than a minute (honestly).
Other programs that I used which didn't work for me include CamStudio and Jing. The free version of CamStudio crashed quite a bit; I had to turn off my stylus tablet to get it to work. Jing had some limitations that slowed down my workflow.
Let me know what you like to use or if you came to the same solution as I did. I hope this was helpful.
