Ramblings…I have used both CamStudio and Microsoft Media Encoder. CamStudio worked the best especially when recording a database application that had extra disk usage. Microsoft Media Encoder was too slow but the picture quality was excellent. One minor little bug with CamStudio is that long recordings seem to get the sound out of sync with the video after about 15 minutes or so. I believe this is less of an issue when using the new 2.5 beta version though. When I use CamStudio, I always record to an AVI file and then use the Media Encoder to translate the video to .wmv which is much smaller or upload the .avi to a public site like viddler. Using the .swf recorder in CamStudio makes a video that is really difficult to read on the standard screen and there is no way to change it. This is also a problem with sites like youtube, there resolution is really bad for screen casting. Another possiblity is to use a program like Magnify Glass which by hotkey will magnify part of the screen and make it much easier to see on the video. There is a free version of Magnifying Glass but it didn’t work on my dual screen system so I used the demo of version 1.5 that worked for my needs.

This dude is doing what I’m doing. Drop him a line:
“I actually have developed a version specifically for doing this.
It is 400K Your customer downloads it. It silent installs. It then auto connects to the ip/port which is coded in already to the client side. Places 2 shortcuts on the desktop one for reconnect and one for uninstall. The uninstall is also silent.
I am having 3 problems with it though. If anyone is interested in assisting me solve these final 3 issue it would be appreciated.
