Camstudio, a free screen recording software that allows the user to make video recording of all screen activities on the user’s computer as well as audio recordings using a microphone. The software renders videos in an AVI format. It can also convert these AVIs into Flash Video format, embedded in SWF files. First, when I open up CamStudio, i need to choose the settings. Select "Options" from the menu and click "Video Options." A new dialog will open. I should now select a compressor. Compressors are used to keep my video file from being larger than it needs to be for my purpose. For instance, if i want to load my video onto YouTube, I will need to use a compressor to make sure that MY video is no larger than 100 MB per 10 minutes of video. Click on the dropdown list in the dialog to select one. A very effective free compressor is DivX. Click on the "Configure" button to select the bit rate (which for the web is best set to 56). I also change the quality to 60, turn of "Auto Adjust," set the "Key Frame rate" to 30 and click "OK."

This is my recording slide presentation during ICT class..For the first time using cam studio:-
