Hello
Can someone please help me. What I need to do is record myself operating a software program and create a voice over to teach other user's how to use the program. Then I want to upload it to a website. Can any of you guru's out there help me.

Kind Regards
Chris Foster

Camtasia would be your best choice. Does exactly what you are looking for.

I use CamStudio alot http://camstudio.org/ It's free - nowhere nearly as good as Camtasia, but it works OK. Problem with that one though is I've never been able to get it to record audio even thought it's supposed to be able to. I have to save it as an AVI and record Audio using my webcam. Then I dub the audio over the video.

//edit - actually I started thinking about it and tried something I never did. Turned my webcam on, but didn't record. In Audio options in CamStudio I chose my webcam Microphone and switched the compression to Microsoft ADPCM and it worked! *side note - CamStudio saves the files as avi's by default, but in their tools there's an option to convert the avi to an swf. I like Camtasia better but like you I didn't want to dump $300 into it.

i use a free demo creator to create a software operation demo.
it is very clear in swf. But when i convert it to flv , it is very vague.

SWF version:http://www.flash-on-tv.com/articles/demo-streaming-audio-recorder.html
FLV version:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wREvI-lK3y4

Is there any suggestion to make a clear demo both in swf or flv format ?Thx!

Wink is also a free alternative. It's not good though. Jerky for me, but my computer is weak. Maybe that's why.
