Screen Video Capture Software

I am looking for a full screen video capture software. I have tried Snapit, Windows Media Encoder, and CamStudio and I havent gotten great results. Any suggestions? I need something that is high quality and perferably free.

I've been advocating Replay Video Capture for some time now, but alas I see those old names like those that you mentioned trotted around time and time agian -- yes they're absolute rubbish. Get the trial of Replay Video Capture and you'll probably end up buying it. It can record in MPEG-2 or WMV with lots of options for resolution and bitrate etc -- as well as the ability to size the frame to any size around the screen.

I'm with LeeTutor on this one, we use ScreenHunter in our company a lot, though do have a few die-hards who have their own Snag-It licenses, but by enlarge, it's SH for screen grabbing.  If you need to get screenshots from WMV or MPG files use a program called Image Grabber II.

As you all know I drink very heavily so things often look pear shaped to me. But isn't the author asking for video capture software, and isn't Screen Hunter an image capture software? Am I missing something  here?
And if I want to grab any image of screenshot I just hit "print screen -- 'PrtScn' on my keyboard and crop out the image in Photoshop. Don't need any software to do that, even works for any video -- just pause on the frame and hit print  screen.

It's unclear whether or not he wants video capture or screen capture.  CamStudio and Windows Media Encoder (neither of which I have) appear to be video capture programs, but SnapIt is screen capture.
