I am using this for the past few weeks. Very helpful utility.

Is there anything which will create GIF out of the screencast capturing?


I will see if anything is available and inform you…

@pavan till now I tested lot of screen casting softwares I felt not happy with them ,I definitely going to try camstudio ,I recently tested screen Toaster which is online screen recorder is very good and we can embed the video in bog\web sites,the only thing is that it don’t support you tube this feature will be added to that in their future release.

Camstudio is nice. Now I am using another one DemoCreator, which is with more editing features. It is easy to make software tutorials and website demos.

Camstudio is very good for recarding.and am using it in my office from longtime.

It is simple and worth more to try :)
