Video and Minecraft
In a Google Community connected to my 5012 class at Ohio University the question was raised regarding what are the options re videoing/screen capturing/casting and Minecraft.
I have been asked this a few times in the past so I thought it was time to put it somewhere obvious. Things do change so please be aware that this may be out of date when you view it.
Last year (2013) kids were using Bandicam for recording at home – the free version has a Bandicam watermark (at the top of the screen) http://www.bandicam.com/product/how_to_record_minecraft_gameplay/
Fraps http://www.fraps.com/ seemed to be the choice of my older students.
In talking with Jo Kay (https://twitter.com/jokay a guru re Minecraft and my mentor) she mentioned these options:
She also mentioned that this was getting some comments or shares recently:

And the other one some of the pros talk about is http://sourcefilmmaker.com/

And for the iPad this is a newbie – so not sure how it will go, and there are some limitations re latest devices and time frame http://www.techsmith.com/techsmith-appshow.html
Oh, and one more, which is used by a past student of mine who does serious machinima, http://exkode.com/dxtory-features-en.html
An example of his work can be found here. Please be aware some of his work does require a language warning, but this one is ok.
