use ManyCam. ManyCam is software with it's own WDM-compatible driver
which is recognized by most any video capturing software (Included and
other than it's own).
For just a still screen capture however, I just simply hit ALT+PRINT
SCREEN and use Irvanview to do any neccessary editing (This especially
comes in handy when capturing an active window).

set the bitrate to (Sake for the sake of argument) 700 Kbps.? Seems to
me that would be a whole lot simpler than what you're trying to do as
Plus keep this in mind. Windows Media Player already comes pre-packaged
with all versions of Windows. If your client doesn't support Macs on
their networks, WHY make 'em install Quicktime on their computers and/or
install a server that will stream Quicktime files when Windows Media A).
Will do the job just the same (Despite it being an MS product) and B).
Is all your client's network can apparently support?
Is there something I'm missing here?

- Thanks for all of your suggestions for screen recording software for Windows
FYI, the problem is not with recording PowerPoint presentations, but with
recording the small print on web page demonstrations. Since my client
records these events in DV, the small web text is unreadable.
I can screen record clearly on my Mac with iShowU, but I need a solution for
Windows XP. They don¹t support Macs on their network where some of the
tutorials are done.
I¹m going to try the less expensive/free solutions first and see if they are
The free jing is very interesting.

- I haven't been following this,but I have had a lot of success with
Snagit. It costs about $ 40.00 - I believe. I can't remember how much
I paid for it, but it does so much. I can record the entire screen,
or any portion of it. I can record individual screen shots too, and
then add explanatory text later. I love the image manipulation
features. It really works for me.
