Icecream Screen Recorder is a Windows utility that might prove to be of good use if you need to capture your screen activity. You can use this program to create video tutorials, take snapshots, record audio content while you're on Skype conferences, etc.
The application provides you with multiple video recording modes (a certain area, full screen, around the mouse, etc.), allows you to take snapshots of your entire screen or just an area of your desktop, brings you mouse cursor effects, and lets you annotate your screenshots. Furthermore, you can define various hotkeys for immediately starting or stopping video recording, taking snapshots, capturing webcam content, etc.
The thing I like the most is the ability to draw over the recording area while the application is filming. This feature proves to be of good use when creating video tutorials and it's important to show directions while recording your screen.
Sadly, the program is quite limited when it comes to its list of supported output formats. The Pro version provides you with a longer list of supported video and photo formats, but it's still small comparing to other apps of its kind.
In conclusion, you should try a different recording tool if the supported output formats aren't suitable for your projects.
