Since the starcraft2 replays are in their own replay format, but I think the SC 2 replays are pretty well watched on youtube, whats the best way using a camtasia like software to record the entire game?

Should this be a duplicate of:… or the other way around? – tzenes Aug 15 '10 at 4:42

FRAPS -- records video and audio, shows a frame-rate couter. FRAPS itself is pretty lightweight, but the process of recording is pretty system-intensive: be sure you've got a decent PC before attempting this.

FRAPS is quite good - I used it a few times in a previous life for WoW PvP captures :) – Jarrod Dixon Aug 15 '10 at 5:24
I concur wholeheartedly with the FRAPS recommendation. I bought GameCam because it was cheap, and while it did the job, and got a decent resolution, it had what seemed to be an upper limit of 15 FPS on videos. Made for too choppy of videos for my liking. I switched to FRAPS and it has worked extremely well since. – Aeo Sep 10 '10 at 13:04
