Besides recording the screen with an actual camera what are the options to make, for example, a Windows installation video tutorial?
An option is to use a second PC that has a video capture card installed. There are a few out there if you search that will let you input and record from computer sources like DVI or VGA.
You take your first pc video out connect that to a video splitter so you can run that video to a monitor and also the video capture card on the second pc.
You can not do it inside the screen. But you have two ways:
- Use the camera (Not recommended)
- Use a Virutal Machine
I recommend the second way. You can use a virtual software like VirtualBox (Freeware) or VMWare.
You can make a virtual operation system and install your windows inside it. During the installation, you can record the screen.
The virtual machine will run in your OS into a SandBox, so it won't touch your OS files until you want.
Only personal choice, I would use VM Player + CamStudio, which give me best experience on produce some installation video.
