What is the best screen capture program available for Windows 7? I want one that can capture videos, video games, and VirtualBox. Basically, any program I can use on my PC, including in full screen. I tried using HyperCam but it won't install.

I use the payware 1AVCapture. It works nicely.

Another good one is the freeware tool AviScreen, though it only captures in a few uncompressed formats.
I've attached the portable (no-install) version to this post. Just unRAR and use.

I'm not sure how well any of these may capture what's happening inside of a virtual machine. VirtualBox contains a video capture function, but it's command-line controlled and difficult to use. Look up "vboxheadless". I've not tried it to date myself.
There's a blog entry here, showing how complex it is: http://vmetc.com/2009/07/18/video-of...on-ubuntu-904/
I'd rather use VMWare, which has this built in and easy to use: http://www.vmware.com/support/ws5/do...g_capture.html
VMWare Workstation is payware, but has a trial: http://www.vmware.com/products/workstation/new.html

Do you ever have problems with recordzilla, such as not recording properly, quality issues, or frame issues?

Several things to consider from that post:
  • Dannylim64 is from 115.134.x.x IP space (Malaysia). That IP space is a known spammer range.
  • His first post is suggesting cheap $30 payware.
  • Address of company that makes Recordzilla: Softdiv Software Sdn Bhd, 216 Jalan Permai, Taman Bukit Gambier, Gelugor, Penang 11700, Malaysia
  • Therefore it's likely just a spammer whoring his own software. (While we usually remove spam, I'll leave it alone this time.)

If you want payware, 1AVcapture works pretty well. I've used that for some online tutorials in the past. I didn't buy it, however -- it was free from GivewayoftheDay.com about a year or two ago. Get it here: http://www.pcwinsoft.com/1AVCapture

It's $60 on the site. But when you install it, it offers a 50% discount if you buy it the first day of install. So $30. My suggestion is to try it on one computer, and see if you like it during the 21-day trial. If you decide to buy it, install it on the important computer where it's needed, and take the $30 discount. (I completely hate the way software companies are dishonest about price. If you want $30, make it $30 all the time.)
