    I've tried Copernicus, but couldn't make it work.

    Tried Jing, but what the heck plays .swf files?

    I'm very bad with computers, so I really need something easy. (why i like apples products)

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you know what version of OS X you have?

    (to find out, click on the Apple in the top left, then go to 'About this Mac'. You're looking for the numbers below the big 'Mac OS X' words.

    Quicktime offers easy to use screen-recording. It's one button (record) with a couple of settingo for video quality(medium or high) and the videos(.mov) save location

    I would recommend Screenflow, it's an easy to use application.

    Depends on what you need to do. Screenflow is a nice app and easy to use, you can annotate, etc. If you just need to do a quick screen recording, Quicktime is a good choice. It's easy and you already have it installed.

    Skitch is free and truly awesome! No need to upload images to some far away server and wait for a URL to come back. Drag and drop!

    I like Quicktime's new recorder, it's okay, but I also like iShowu. It's $20, but well worth the money. The quality is great, the audio is easy to use, and you can select which part of the screen to record, or do the whole screen.

    Also compresses nicely in conjunction with something like VideoMonkey.
