Screen recording or screen casting software is used for recording demonstrations, remote technical assistance, sales presentations, and training. Much like screen capture software, but a little more. Screen recording does just that. Records your screens activities, including mouse movement and sound if any.
Screencasts can be used for describing software features, reporting bugs, or for interactive e-learning. Just as a screenshot is a picture of a user's desktop screen, a screencast is essentially a movie of what a user sees on his or her monitor.

Be carful of copyright infringement. While these tools are legal and their use is legal, capturing someone else's website as a screen shot might not be. It is important to be respectful of the Webmasters whose sites you’re taking the screenshots of, that you obey any licenses and that you only use what you need to make your point.
Whether you want to create Tutorials for your blog, or explain a process, or capture your blogging experience to Youtube. Screen casting or Screen recording is the way to do it. With Vlogging on the uptake, this might be a good start into adding that extra zing to your blog and posts.
