Good, simple, light screen capture program for videos?

Simple question:
What is a good screen capture program to capture videos of desktop?

I've tried several in the past, but I seem to come up with something I do not want. I am particularly looking for something with 'ok' quality, doesn't have to be great as it is just desktop vids with sound recording.

I don't remember, but a few that I have tried would just create videos that were MUCH bigger than they needed to be for the quality of video I want.

I.e. something like Fraps is overkill for what I want.

Just something simple to record desktop output audio/visual?

Jing is free for 5 minutes and lets you upload to their server.

I am working with a developer right now to create futures.io (formerly BMT) (bmcharts.com) own version of screen capture and video capture, hope to release something soon. Will be free for futures.io (formerly BMT) users.

Jing is cool as Mike says but only 5 mins.

I have Camtasia Studio now - I tried quite a few free recorders but the ones I tried were all really buggy so I gave up in the end.

5 minutes will work for what I need. Does Jing allow you to create the video and save to your PC? Or does it get auto-recorded and you have to upload the vid somewhere else?

I can't remember if the free version lets you save locally or not. Pretty sure the paid version does.

Yes, the free version saves your captured videos (maximum of 5 minutes recording time per recording session) on your PC .... then you can upload the videos to your free Screencast Account via their web interface/tools, or you can download and install their free ScreencastUploader to your PC to upload your videos (most especially the large size videos). That's what I currently do. The free Screencast Account has a 2GB storage space limit.

I may look into camtasia again, I actually see that is one of the programs I deleted a while back for whatever reason?

Thanks for the replies. I'm currently trying this other program I have called "CamStudioRecorder," that looks like it is probably what I need for the basic vids I may be doing.

I use Camstudio and Camtasia Studio personally. But the problem is both create rather large files by default, you have to tweak settings to get them to a usable size.

I also use Handbrake (on my Windows box) or ffmpeg (linux) to encode the videos in a better fashion (smaller, retain quality).

But I think for the casual user, Jing is probably the best experience, followed by Camtasia Studio (both from Techsmith). At least until my own app is released lol

Camstudio is a great free tool for the actual capture work, but terrible for encoding. It makes enormous files, you won't be able to attach them here to futures.io (formerly BMT) due to size limits, and if you upload them to Youtube then it will just taken 10x longer to upload because they are so poorly encoded.
