Record all screen and audio activity on your computer.
Free Video Recorder is a free screen recorder software to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard WMV video files.
Weeny Free Video Recorder creates high-quality WMV recordings of all activity (both visual and auditory) taking place in your desktop, as well as any video and audio signals coming from your webcam. This recording utility will allow you to produce high-quality demos and tutorials in a simple and rewarding process.
The program's interface is straightforward and intuitive. It places itself on the top side of your screen in the shape of an attractive, Mac-like, icons desk. These icons will change their size and position as you hover your mouse over them, though they will open standard window-based menus when selected. The settings provided are very easy to go through, and usually you will need to tweak them only once. Here you can select the different hotkeys that will help you activate the different tasks quickly and efficiently. These tasks – and their associated hotkeys – will allow you to make recordings of the current active window, of any other window of your choice, and of the entire desktop; to draw a rectangle-shaped region or to select a camera as the input device; to capture or ignore the cursor in the recording, as well as to start, stop, and resume the recording. You can also decide on the size and the frames per second of the video stream, as well as the channels and bit rate of the audio stream (when available).
The recording process is smooth and simple, and thanks to its wise use of hotkeys, you can master the program in just a few minutes. The results are certainly rewarding, and – over and above – they will cost you nothing.

It took me a while to figure out the right hotkeys, but after that I'm able to quickly make tutorial videos with no problem! Great tool for video blogging.
