As screencasting software gets better and easier to use, people have found more and more uses for recording and sharing live video from their Mac's screen--from hands-on tech support to online gaming braggadocio. Screenium has long been one of the best options for Mac users who want to record video and audio captured from their desktops, and the jump to 2.0 has made the app even better.
Screenium can help you record full-screen, or in a single window or prescribed area, and the app captures anything and everything -- including streaming video, microphone audio commentary, picture-in-picture of your iSight or other camera, and a virtually unlimited number of video sources. The best improvement in the updated Screenium is an integrated, multitrack video and audio editor, so you don't need to rely on a separate editor or iMovie to clean up and organize your screencasts. Screenium also makes it easy to export your finished product (in any format supported by QuickTime), and Screenium add lots of cool extras, like options that let viewers know what's happening with your mouse clicks while you're narrating the onscreen action.
With its easy interface and copious capabilities, Screenium is still one of the best values out there for screencasting software.
