Screen Capture program wanted

Posted on 2002-04-05
Last Modified: 2010-07-27
I am looking for a program that will allow me to capture my desktop (images, mpeg videos, sound, actions) into a mpeg file so that I can then record them to video.

What I want to do is to record some programming CBT's I have that have mpeg videos, animation, and voice over recordings, capture all of it and record them to a video tape so that I can watch them.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Is this what you are looking for..

ScreenCam is Lotus Development's popular PC screen recording application. Use ScreenCam to demonstrate your product, teach people how to use it and help them get the most from their applications.

you can download a trial version from here -

You don't have to be a professional movie producer to create arresting PC movies in any Windows application. ScreenCam captures every on-screen action, plus the sound of your voice automatically.
Use captions and subtitles to describe what's on the screen when you don't have sound, or need more than sound to illustrate your point. Choose from a wide range of typefaces, backgrounds and formats.....etc...

Sorry about that, it is Windows XP.

I looked at Lotus Screencam and the site said they have no plans to come out with a win200 or winXP version.

Any other suggestions?

You could use Timbucktu which has a screen record function. That's the only one i know of for windows.
