I generally don't need to use this very much. And for most purposes, snagIt does a fine job, but it does not capture audio. Same with VLC media player. I tried a few other free softwares, but the problem with most of them is that they seem to create files of enormous sizes. Capturing screen for 10 minutes usually results in 4-5 GB size file and I don't want that. I think what I liked best so far was a light-weight software called krut, but even that is far from being satisfactory. The file size still ends up at over 500MB for 10 minutes and the format is .mov, .mp4 is preferable. I think best would be if VLC could capture audio. It takes less space and the format is .mp4. Any suggestions?
