Web Video Screen Capture

I have a Windows 7 PC with a really good broadband connection.  I have YouTube Downloader, which works great for capturing YouTube videos, but I am looking for a software program that will enable me to capture any video on sites not supported by YTD.  E.g. news sites.  Is there a dependable program that essentially does a video version of "screen capture"?

Thanks,

Phil

One of the best free video screen capture options is CamStudio where you mark out an area of your screen to get real time video/audio recording.  If you want a paid option the market leader is TechSmith's Camtasia which is relatively expensive but offers a trial period.  Both process graphics from your screen directly so your results will depend on the processing power of your computer.  Unlike a video downloader you are building a file not downloading it from its original location. Also take care with copyrighted sources.
