need recs on video capture/editing software, link at end of video for streaming video

  1. I am making a 2 minute video promo for my company's software. I wish
    to do the following things - and if you can give me direction on any
    I'd be appreciative! Thanks,

    1) I need to find good inexpensive video capture software that I can
    use to record me using our software -- I also need to edit this later,
    put a voiceover on top (which I can do seperately) and I'd like a link
    at the end of the video to lead the user to our sales page. Whether
    they see the link or get redirected automatically, I don't care.

    What format should I use for my website? I'm aiming for just a you-
    tube like production that is short and sweet and leads people to our
    sales page.

  2. I believe the (free) Microsoft Windows Media encoder has
    a screen-capture feature. The industry-leader, Camtasia
    is very expensive, but I believe there are others, also.
    I believe there are options to either edit WMV or else
    convert it to something that IS easy to edit.
    I don't remember whether WMV has that capability?
    Flash does, though.
    The most widely-available viewing utility is Adobe
    (formerly Macromedia) Flash which is what YouTube, are using. It comes pre-installed on pretty much all
    PCs and Macs (unlike Quicktime, Windows Media, Real,

    There is supposed to be a free Flash converter available
    out there somewhere but I don't have the details at hand.

    Richard, are you thinking of the (free) Riva FLV encoder? for more details.
