Important Note: This app is no longer essential if you have OS X 10.6+ and Apple Quicktime X as it now has the ability to capture video from your desktop. If you have an older version of OS X however, it's worth downloading.
DesktopRecorder is a free desktop recorder for Macs which records both images and sounds in a simple handy app.
All you need to do is select the compression rate and number of frames per second you want your screencast to be in and you're ready to go. It's a very simple piece of desktop recording software but as noted above, so is Quicktime X which does exactly the same job and offers slightly more power than DesktopRecorder.
If you don't have OS X 10.6+ and QuickTime X installed, then DesktopRecorder is a very useful screen recording tool.
Very simple to use
Records sound and video
Not necesssary if you have QuickTime X
"Functions as expected. Two thumbs up."
This is great! While it does not record sound, and automatically records at full screen resolution, you can't beat free. This does exactly what I need it to. It can record at 24 or 30 fps as well as many others and at varying qualities to the destination you choose.
