Screen Recorders

Recently I started looking into creating screen video recording on my PC. The purpose is to create demos, tutorials, and show problems to software vendor. The tool needs to be free, record full or partial screens, add documentation, and support for audio.

Searching the internet turned many such tools that meet these requirement requirements. So far only, I have only used CamStudio. It is open source and recommended by others. As time permits I will look into trying the others. For now CamStudio has meet my needs of being able to record my screen.
