Camstudio is a open source screen recording software. Its completely free for personal use. It can record any screen activity, full screen or user defined regions of the screen. It can also record audio either from a attached Microphone or from the built in systems speaker.
Free screen recording software like Camstudio, have become quite popular with bloggers and teachers alike.You can use these software’s to create a demonstration video. Create Video tutorials for schools and college class. And videos for YouTube also.
There are many tutorials as to the best settings for Camstudio for HD recording. I have tried quite a few of these tutorials, but was not satisfied.
After lots trial and error I found these settings for Camstudio for HD recording as the best. This video (below) was captured on these settings.
Camstudio is completely free, you can download the latest version from its site. Additionally, you can also download the Camstudio lossless codec pack, from the same site.
This codec was used to record the above video. It is important to install and use this codec for better compression and smaller file size. The latest version comes bundled with the codec. So after installation, you can check under options > video options > compressor. If its there no need to download.
CamStudio can also add high-quality, anti-aliased screen captions to your recordings in seconds and with the unique Video Annotation feature.
As I said earlier, there are many variations in the settings for Camstudio. But the settings described here, I feel is the best settings for Camstudio for recording HD videos.
