    Which screen capture software did you use? Freeware? Audio capture capability? Do I need to install independent codec packs?

    Which codec did you use? Uploading large files(>50mb) to youtube on my 700kb/sec upstream connection is excruciating.

      you could try out camstudio.org – freeware . It has audio and video recording capabilities.

      there are others in the market too such as hypercam, camstasia, fraps, but those are trial. Need to purchase.

      I use wmv for Youtube upload, its small in size, works great for those who have mini hard disk space and mini RAM.

      For those who have lots of RAM and Hard Disk space, go for what youtube recommends, MP4 format. MPEG-4
