What is CamStudio?
Record your computer screen with audio input from Mic or Speakers. Also shows mouse clicks in addition to the regular cursor. Simple interface with ability to record in AVI or export as swf.
The project seems to be no longer developed. Last version, 2.7 r316, released in May 2015, can be still downloaded from SourceForge.
As described on VirusTotal comment (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/1ddb733efb11769a05cc735d555e9a4df92c4cdf29fa47ea3864e57e67dcf884/analysis/1411383540/): if you download CamStudio from SourceForge.net, the VirusTotal results are 0/53. After installing this SF version, it immediately says that there is an update available. When the link is clicked, it takes you to camstudio.org, which has a zip file that, scanned with VirusTotal, gives you 15/53 result. So do NOT download and install the "update": it's a malware. Installer as of 09/22/2014.

Easy to use and reliable. It's a real shame that it can't draw from on machine audio and microphone at the same time, because if it could it would be perfect. If it's usage does not require "In-game" audio being accompanied by running commentary, I'd recommend this software to anyone.
Easy to use, had no problems whatsoever!
It does have malware.
Invariably, if camstudio points to an infected update, then camstudio itself is suspect and should not be downloaded as many will click on the update. camstudio on sourceforge should be flagged.
it is discontinued
So I switched to ShareX. But good point for CamStudio is low CPU load in process of recording. It not spin up notebook fan.
Malware can be avoided hten installing.

Crash all the time, must re-set settings each and every time it crashes. Software needs an update bad. total POS software. Avoid at all costs.
