Can you suggest good free or paid video capture software?

I don’t mind paying if it’s worth the money. I need something that can capture HD quality with sound at around 30 fps (or more) and still look good. Thoughts?

    In my opinion, CamStudio and Microsoft's Expression Encoder are better than anything else.

    'Fraps' would do that, but the video size will be very large.

    If you're planning to be doing gaming demonstrations then Fraps is good recording software as it shows what FPS you are getting.

    Otherwise I would suggest Camtasia Studio 8, it has recording and editing.

    Fraps Is the best if you have Faster RAM & Processor.
    Otherwise try CamStudio.

    Any Video Recorder (http://any-video-recorder.com), which is free and easy-to-use. And you can set the parameters such as fps, bts, etc.

    Also, other video recorders you can take the article as a referral: http://carmenaboutsoftware.over-blog.com/article-11-free-screen-recording-softwares-for-creating-attractive-screencasts-on-windows-108494473.html

    CamStudio is the best option as I think.

    It is free, also available as portable in PortableApps.com, is open-source (if I'm right), and there si many things you can do with it!

    If you're looking into capturing video from a website, there are a few and simple options. Internet download manager has that feature to capture videos from sites as it streams and downloads them. In firefox, you can install an ad-on called NetvideoHunter which does a similar amazing job too.

    You need to specify what kind of video you are trying to capture: as in something being pulled from an external source via a video capture card, or your desktop as everyone else is assuming - or perhaps you want to steal youtube videos? Without knowing, we cant really help.

    Microsoft Expression Encoder, it is free so try for your taste
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=18974
    "Standard" Expression Encoder limits your screencast to 10 minutes, and the output is only in Windows Media formats, videos come out in 1080p high-def
