I'm looking for a program that records my screen, audio output to my speakers, and audio input (microphone). Does there exist a software capable of doing this? I'm primarily interested in Windows, but willing to try Linux ones too.

Price: less than $150 USD, but of course, cheaper is always better
Format: Any popular format should be okay

    Tosh, it doesn't help to delete your question and ask it again, ignoring all requests for more details (and even make it broader). Again, fill the gaps please: a) limits in recording lenght vs. auto-split into multiple files, b) recording quality and formats / compression vs quality vs resolution, c) easy-to-use GUI with xyz (buttons/controls/…), d) load it puts on the computer while running, e) dependencies/size of the application, f) price. edit your post to include those – don't delete/repost a 4th time.

  • Izzy, there were no comments on the original question when I deleted it - I saw your comment on that question just now. I deleted that question since I realized my original question has already been asked and answered, in many questions in fact, under the tag "screen-recording".
