SnowFox Screen Recorder is a handy application which allows you to record screen activity in a simple way. It also enables you to record sound using a microphone. The software supports many output formats, including AVI, WMV, MP4, SWF and FLV. The application can record the whole screen or any fragment. It will even record the cursor's movements. The software is ideal for creating tutorials how to use an application, capture online videos (from YouTube, Daily Motion, Yahoo videos, etc) or to play games. The program is very easy to use and its graphic interface is very intuitive. To start recording, you just select the area of the screen you wish to capture and then click on the 'Record' button. By clicking on the 'Video' menu, you will be able to set the output format and to adjust the quality of the output file. While you are recording your files, you can speak and let people know what you are doing. You can define hotkeys to start, pause and stop the recording at any time.
You can try the program for free by downloading the trial version. However, the output files recorded with the non-registered version will have a watermark indicating that you are using its free version.
