CamStudio - Screen Recorder is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files. And using its built-in SWF Producer, it can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs)

This program was once a fairly decent program to capture video and audio for making training video's. I decided to try it again recently, since it had been years since I used it. It is terrible and installs malware. In it's current form it ALWAYS needs an update, and the update is gotten from a separate site so as to circumvent any tests done at sourceforge,net or other places like download.com, looking for malware or other junk it, or 3rd parties, install during the programs installation and operation. Some of the issues I had could also be from just a poorly designed program, but it is definitely deceitful and causes the installation of malware, and possibly rootkits from what I have experienced while cleaning it out over the last 24 hours. Don't just take my word for it. Check out the recent Reviews at places like Download.com..... I looks like the developers, or whoever took it over, decided to go to the dark side and no longer provide a decent video/audio capture program, without infecting someones computer. I've gotten many good programs here at source forge and just hoped they frown upon this type of software being developed and promoted here. CamStudio was once a fair program, but in it's current state, it gives CamStudio AND sourceforge.net a bad reputation.
Unfortunately, installation requires acceptance of V9 software - no option to decline. Thus, I canceled installation and will find different software to use.
Spyware bundled into software
Really annoyed that this package installed V9 malware even after opting out of all optional software installs. I had used CamStudio in the past with good luck and it never had this issue. Avoid this package like the plague!
2014-10-29 COMES WITH SWEET-PAGE MALWARE! No warning or opt-out during install. Avoid!
