    Does anybody know if there's a screen recording software out there for OSX (I'm on Mountain Lion) that lets you record video/audio on your screen in the background, so I can keep using my computer while it records? There are a couple apps like that for windows but I haven't been able to find anything for Mac.

    These guys work fine... Click Me

    However, I think they are Windows-only.

    Quicktime Player ships with OS X and works fine and is free. File > New Screen Recording.

    For more features, I think Snapz Pro is unbeatable.

    I've used Screenium in the past, and found it to be quite decent.

    Screenflow 4 is what you want and they have a free trial.

    A second vote for QuickTime Player. Works fine for me in recording the screen and any selected audio input.

    Quicktime with Soundflower

    I always use Quicktime because it's built-in, good quality, and simple. If you want to record the system audio (like a Youtube video and its audio) and not stuff from the built in mic you can use Sound Flower.

    Here's an article about that :http://www.macworld.com/article/1159440/soundflower_capture.html

    I've used Camtasia in the past and I liked it a lot. Check it out, if you like.

    ScreenFlow is the best paid one, the editor is awesome, and QuickTime is a free one that comes with every single Mac.

    Hope this helps. I usually use ScreenFlow more, but it costs $100 on the Mac App Store...but you know... you could get it for... :cool:

    Quicktime Player has built-in screen recording feature, so you didn't need third party app for screen recording

    I use Demo Recorder, it is free and you can record as much as your hard drive will allow. Only problem is the sound it records is from the mic, so if you talk or type it pics it up....kinda annoying. Haven't used it in a while so not sure if they have an update yet.

    FYI - for those interested in screen recording, my ebook "Conceptual Guide to ScreenFlow" explains how to edit videos & build screencasts in ScreenFlow for Mac OS X, is available FREE TODAY on the Kindle Store. It will again be FREE end of this month on September 26-28, 2013. Thanks.
