Bug-riddled, non-functional CRAP. Upgraded to this version. Error message at startup, but it still starts up. Close preferences window? Crash with no error message. Tell it to record? Crash with no error message. What utter junk.

Terrific program at a terrific price

I know next to nothing about video and managed to do successful screenshots to upload to YouTube immediately. I was able to just click on the YouTube configuration, choose H.264 compression and got successful video screenshots on my first try. There is very reasonably priced pro version but this no fuss version is exactly what I wanted for casual, occasional use.

Easy to use, creates compact files, and just works fine. I did several video tutorials for clients, and the results were excellent.
Considering the price, this is a bargain!

iShowU is a great little app. I used it for our screencast tutorials for one of our products a few years back. I did a quick tutorial for a new product the other day on a MacBook with OS X 10.6 and iShowU was just fabulous again. Will be doing a series of tutorials again.

Currently using iShowU version 1.75

More than 100% CPU usage is not such a tough trick if you have two CPU's... (and, depending on how you calculate even if you just have multiple cores on a single chip).
