BB FlashBack Express

Can record audio from microphone, speakers and also Picture in picture (from my webcam)


WinFF/FFMpeg   (Video encoding)

This is a front end to the ffmpeg software. Very easy to use.

List of tools i recently tried and found satifying for my needs (I am using Winidows 7 OS)

CamStudio

Opensource, but the picture in picture (webcam capture was not working for me)

Jing (Screenshots and Screencasts)

Records upto 5 minutes in swf format. With the Pro version can record directly to mp4. I am using this for taking screenshots


TechSmith Video Codecs

Optimized for screencasts, TechSmith video codecs provide lossless image quality combined with the smallest file size possible.

 

Free Flash SWF/FLV Converter (Convert swf's from Jing to Avi)

Screenr

Its an instant screencast creator designed to work with Twitter. You launch the recording from the website and can record upto 5 minutes. Once the recording is done, it processes it and you are good to tweet your creation. On top of that you can upload the video to youtube and download a mp4 to your computer.
I made some test recordings and you can check them out at http://screenr.com/user/satishgoda
