I ran across information about these programs while doing some research on YouTube about Quicktime Screen Recording. Well anyway the first is called PSR. So if you have Windows 7, go to your Start Menu and type PSR in the search for programs and files. I am not sure what the capabilities of this program are, whether it can record a video you are playing on a website or not. Here is a link to the YouTube clip about the program:
The second program is called Microsoft Expression Encoder 4. Here is a link to the YouTube clip about the program:
This program looks like it is fairly sophisticated. I hope it is a self contained program that doesn't require codecs being installed. It would be neat if it could record video that you are watching on your computer screen. I thought this information would be useful to someone.

After reading some comments about Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 in the Tool Section perhaps it is not that great a tool after all, and in the video it shows a codec being installed, so that might not be such a good idea. I read that Quicktime can record screen activity, but I am not sure yet if it can do that on the Windows OS.
Tom, I know your have our best interests in mind, but that first video is one of the worst videos I have ever seen.
Good one Baldrick
I do have to admit the first video was kind of cheesy. I have read that Camtasia can record on screen video and such, but have read it may contain a virus or some type of spyware. When I downloaded VideoHelper for Firefox, there was an option to also add in Camtasia, but I decided to research whether to go through that step and from what I read it tends to not be all that good for one's computer. My computer is working pretty good, and I don't want to screw it up. I will have to do some more research about Quicktime. Looks like I was wrong that program was CamStudio not Camtasia.
No, the best screen recorder is a mobile camera in portrait mode....
As for the built-in recording software in 7, I can't find the output files even though I went to settings and chose one, I think Microsoft kept it hidden for a reason and it's only used for reporting problems.
