For recording I suggest you use the Microsoft Expression Recorder 4
. This is an excellent recorder and now for free (used to cost $199). It used to be only free for 10 minute recordings but now you can record for as long as you want.
A long time ago I had made this tutorial that explains it
. The encoding phase may be a bit long if you have a modest CPU. But on an i7, it is no problem.
I also use Camtasia (the first recording was made with it) but there is a problem with the black frames that I have to fix. Another excellent recording program I have is WMCapture
. It is cheap, has a free trial and does better than the other two with modest CPUs.
I don't really know what the copyright implications are. But since this is a live display, we don't really copy from a file where the copyright could apply.
The YouTube thing is pretty straight forward. I also use Vimeo which is just as good. The publication of the videos is slower though - unless you have a Pro account.
