    Easy to use and fairly clean interface, but the recorded files (in .avi format) are humongous. I recorded less than 30 second of screen activity on slightly less than half of a 1920x1200 monitor and got a file that was a bit over 0,5 GB. I switched to TinyTake and it recorded a slightly shorter version of the same screen action in about 2,5 MB (200 times smaller). TinyTake had other drawbacks but nothing I couldn't live with :-). However, I don't seem to have gotten any additional, unwanted software installed with CamStudio from Sourcefourge, maybe they've cleaned up the installers after all the complaints they got?

    Works fine, but Avira finds Adware

    I didn't have any malware issues when I downloaded this from sourceforge on 1-10-14 but it appears that the installer may have been corrupted/infected at roughly the 12-9-13 date because of the comments as well as when I try to download the newest version direct from camstudio to see if it works better for Win 7 it gets flagged by my AV before I download it and I get 80 notifications of temp int files that were quarantined or deleted. Other than that, what I was able to use the program for it did seem very thorough but still having trouble with win 7 since you have to download a codec to save the avi. Gotta give a 2 start rating because of the issues with Win 7 and the current infected download otherwise it would be a great program.

    Check this new player: sourceforge.net/projects/qallinone It can play music, video and images! And it is cross-platform!
