How do you make a "How to" video?

Sometimes it would be much easier to show someone how to do something in the CAD software. How do you make a screen shot video, to maybe to post on YouTube. Is there a free software to do this?

i googled free screen recorder and found the first result useful... that software was freeware and easy to use... but you will have to mess with the video settings for the best results.

I have Fraps for video capture and benchmarking. Works well for me, its a bit pricey at $37 but it does a good job and includes FPS benchmarking. Be sure you have a lot of hard drive space for any screen capture software.

I use CAMTASIA it also has a nice video editor, where you can add text, auto zoom, transitions, music, etc.
