I really don't recommend it. I bought iShowU for recording classes that I paid for and watch them later. Then I found several of them were not properly recorded, some of them were mute, others had the image frozen from a certain point, for no reason. I contacted the developer, nobody had no idea why this happens. Lost tons of time with this software.

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 Hagen Kaye XtraLean Software

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).

Nice product but BIG system resource hog... on dual core Macbook pros, a 24 fps capture with audio uses over 100% CPU and causes the fans to spin up constantly.

Garbled video in 1.61! Yargh, back to 1.6. I'd make more of a fuss, but anything after 1.55 is a test version. Mac OS X 10.5.2 Intel Mac mini 1.66GHz Core Duo 2GB DDR2 SDRAM GMA 950 with 64MB of shared memory

More capture .. for the buck. Although things like the marquee are not as slick as it's chief competitors', this is a great app for a good price. Way to go!

Fixes o Fixed a memory leak that could cause a crash after 10+ hours of recording. o Fixed incorrect audio (left/right) balance when "Record system audio" is enabled. Changes o Reworked all presets. Most now use Apple Animation (generally better for performance), added a preset for WoW that uses Apple Intermediate (if available) or Apple Animation with a slightly reduced frame rate if AIC isn't present. Presets are now included for iMovie HD, iMovie and YouTube / Blip.TV. If the FCP uncompressed codecs are present, then presets are created for these as well. Note: The new presets will only appear for new users. If you want you can reset your existing presets (see the Edit menu), but this will erase your existing presets. o Sorting for descriptors is now case insensitive (generally makes more sense). o Default microphone and system audio volumes are now 100%.

After a lot of testing around with this app, I love it! It does need a couple more features, but v2 is coming up.

I'm trying to record my keynote because the built-in recording feature doesn't record my transitions but this uses 150% CPU according to activity monitor, and that's on Intermediate Codec (supposedly the least CPU intensive). I've tried everything else on the list and they all run at over 100% so my keynote lags. I'm using an intel imac (1.83 ghz) btw.

Nice, but confusing... what are you supposed to Press when you want to keep a resized screen? The symbol it tells you to Press doesn't correspond to anything on a Mac keyboard!
