    What is the best free screencapture tool for OSX to capture video?

    I'm looking to have the ability to capture video of a certain part of the screen.

    Thanks!

    The built-in screen capture utility should work fine for you.

    cgbier - How can you select a particular part of the screen to record?

    I didn't see any option for this.

    Thanks!

    What Mac OS X version do you use?
    QT X in 10.6 won't let you select a portion of the screen, QT X in 10.7 will though.

    I'm currently on 10.6

    Guess I need to accelerate my upgrade to 10.7.

    Any other tool available until I upgrade?

    Thanks!

    Not for free to my knowledge.

    If you want to spend (IIRC) 50 bucks, you might have a look into iShow you or Camtasia et al.
