Logo for Camstudio
Camstudio allows users to record anything on their desktop as a movie file, along with voice narration, annotations and a video embed of themselves from a web cam.  This software is powerful and is a fabulous resource for anyone who wants a free alternative to the expensive screen capture software currently on the market.

When I tried to download this program on my PC it disabled by Chrome browser, and I had to reinstall Chrome. Be very careful when you access the download.

Unfortunately, CamStudio is only available for PCs and not Macs.
