What is the best software for desktop recording?

I've a webpage with small image based jQuery animated tutorial for kids. Size of the DIV displaying animation is 640x425. What would be the best tool to capture this animation as video? I want to upload this video on Youtube.

Probably some tool which would allow me to select display area dimensions would be useful.

Try CamStudio, it's free and fits your requirements.
If the recording performance is not good enough, install the CamStudio codec, which performs significantly better than the default.

I've used Jing and it works like a charm.

Free, easy, fast and with an excellent GUI. Awesome piece of software.
