Recording On-Screen movements

  powerless 07:09 31 May 2003


I'm looking for a program that will allow me to record on screen mouse movements and then be able to play back this recording in Windows Media Player.

The recording will be no longer than 10 seconds and sound will not be needed to be recorded, just the video.

Ideally the file size will be no more than 3MB and the file will have the extension *.Avi.

I have tried "CamStudio" very easy to use but the file sizes are just to big.

Anyone recommend such a program?

3mb for 10 seconds? Huh? I'd either compress it if possible or just use a flash animation....few kb' worries

Hmm - it depends if you consider 0400hrs as 'late :)

AVI is a lossless format that will produce relatively large file sizes (compared to mpeg). Remember that CamStudio does allow you to change the quality, and hence size, of the file.

Anyway, sorry about the oversight - try click here for a wider choice :)

Thanks - I tried VRtainment CapturePad and it works perfectly.

Save to AVI (i used this), SWF and JPG. Easy to use and the file sizes are now under 3MB.

Thanks again!
