anyone know of some legit software for this?
i use orbit downloader, its decent, other people probably know better ones
Camtasia Studio 6 is what you need. Not to be confused with CamStudio. Though CamStudio works and is free, but you'll get much better recording quality with Camtasia.
I use a WFA* converter
try VCL player.
the new version of Real Player (free version) will do it.
