Screen Recording Software – Screenflick

I had to make a short video overview of the game yesterday. I used to use Camstudio all the time when I was on Windows, and was disappointed that it doesn’t run on a Mac. So I spent several hours trying to find a good screen-casting software on the mac. Here’s what I found:


1. Jing: Free and reliable. But unfortunately only records to SWF and not video formats. 


2. ScreenToaster: Online Screen Recorder. Free, but I couldn’t get it to work and it kept crashing my Firefox. 


3. Camtasia:Mac: I’ve heard a lot of good things about Camtasia, but the $99/$149 price tag is a bit much for me. 



Eventually I found ScreenFlick, and it’s $25/23 price tag is perfect for me who just needed a simple and easy tool to record the screen and audio. I downloaded the demo and it worked great (except for the watermark in the center of the video). I hit purchase right away after trying it for 10 minutes and have been quite happy with the result. 



There are some others like SnapzProX ($69), ScreenFlow ($99), and iShowU HD ($29.95) that I didn’t look into. But if you don’t want to spend too much time thinking about which software to go with and just want a simple solution. I’d recommend ScreenFlick
