    there are a few others i tried in the past but not sure how they're doing these days..

    snapz and screenium(beta)

    i recently saw that camtasia has a mac version now so that one might be worth checking out.. a lot of windows users seem to like it.

    If you have snow leopard just use the built-in screen recorder in Quicktime X :) it works wonders.

    Yeah for just basic/simple desktop recording Quicktime X will do or here's a free alternative DesktopRecorder

    Quicktime X is good....but the options in iShowU are outstanding, the video is very good quality as is the audio right through the built in mic, and the video on the iShowU compresses while maintaining a good resolution much better for some reason.

    I have to agree that for recording anything that has a lot of motion or video I've found ScreenFlow to be the best. Great application.

    Try Jing. The free version can make a 5 minute .swf movie, but the paid version can do other formats.

    oops! I see you've found a solution already. Great!
