Hi playwin2,

I use this extension inside Firefox or Flock browser: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006
Later I can play the downloaded vids with VLC Media player,

Wow! Hello Pondus thanks for the list.... very useful  :D

polonus, I used that extension, but I no longer use firefox .....  :'(
however I'm not looking for something like that, I'm looking for video capturing software.

Meantime another friend has suggested debut, seems it's supports more formats than CamStudio, and I think it's more user-friendly, it doesn't capture layered/translucent windows though, just tried to capture avast window with it.....and it's ended with invisible avast! ;D ;D

thanks

well, it's outputs are in pretty low quality....the video, and I find it difficult to use/control, also for each capture I made with it, they all shows mouse-pointer in hourglass mode (very annoying  >:().

But I do like the auto-panning feature.  :)


@YoKenny done!....thanks.

I see, you may improve the quality by using CamStudio's lossless codec.

Screen VidShot for PC, Macvide ScreenCap for Mac — good products for screen recording. I make video tutorials with this tools and I'm really satisfied with what I get.
