Best recording software?

In your opinion, what is the best recording software that is compatible with Windows 7 (64 bit) ?

I have tried camstudio but it has an annoying bug.

Also tried hypercam but stops responding after every recording.

What bug are you getting in Camstudio? I had it work fine, aside from an unrelated Mic volume problem (which I have posted in the Audio forum to hopefully find a fix for).

I tried Camtasia, which is what I used on my old XP Pro system, but I couldn't get the actual screen recording portion to launch. The editing, title creation, and audio recording portions all worked fine. Maybe the newer version fixed it, though. I was using an old Camtasia 5 copy because I was being too cheap to pay for another right now.

Recording wouldn't stop so I tried to close out the recording window. Bad idea. The screen started flashing green and yellow so I had to restart.

Now hypercam is acting up. :/

That could actually be a driver issue with your video card. What video card and driver version are you using?

Also, how long was the video you had recorded before you closed the recording window in Camstudio? In XP, I had problems with Camstudio bombing out on videos longer than about 23 minutes. I haven't recorded anything longer than about 8 in Windows 7, though, so I can't tell you if that problem still occurs. Just that it's a possibility.

My card is an HD Radeon 4670, I am using the latest driver from ati.

The video was about a minute long, I was just testing it out. I'll give camstudio another go and tell you how it goes.

Bah, all sorts of problems. Error when recording sound through speakers, won't work with Divx 6.8 Codec, etc, etc. Might as well find a different recording program.
