I've heard that Bandicam is a good recorder, but I haven't tried it. You could use fraps, too. I've used it before, just it's not free.
To all of you people who think Notch is still working on the game, he stopped working on Minecraft in late 2011. Get your facts straight and stop spamming his twitter about Minecraft updates.

Fraps is good free recorder.
It can record your sound (Mic), or windows sound (Speakers), optional.
It's really good and easy to use.
So fraps is recommended.

I use Fraps to record my gameplay. It's easy to use and doesn't cause much lag.

When you go into fullscreen, you need to manually turn fullscreen on through the settings in minecraft.

Depending on your settings, capturing raw uncompressed (or lossless for that matter) video at high resolution and ~30 fps (or higher) is going to give large files regardless of the recorder you use. If you want to keep the file size small use compression (lossless that is). Do keep in mind though, you'll not only reduce the quality, but you'll also increase the CPU usage (probably by quite a lot).

You should just record lossless/raw data, process it with something like x264 encoding and remove the original after (or if you have the space you can leave it).

Also there is no software recorder out there that won't have a negative impact on your system. It has to grab the pixel data from the screen and write it to disk (and perhaps compression processing before that). All those steps take time which will reduce the performance of Minecraft. Don't expect to get a magic recorder that will just spit out small files at great quality without slowing down the game. It is not going to happen.

There aren't any 'free' ones. If you want one for free you need bug one of your friends that has one until they give you the files. That's what I did any way.Posted Image

If anybody has read the original post, he is looking for a screen recorder with NO TIME  LIMIT. Pyrates, if you're talking about the costly one, you're completely right.

That can lag quite a bit, and it eats up the space on your computer extremely fast.

If that is true, I totally recommend that.

  Look what I found while  browsing the forums yesterday!

Camera Studio can only record you moving around, and cannot record ANY sound whatsoever. This can never be used to upload to youtube, as you need a screen recorder running in the background to record that.
^^ Exactly. That was totally not a fake quote... So, Momo, CamStudio Mod is useless.

I personally use Fraps. All programs will lower your FPS if you don't have a good enough computer.

There aren't really any free good ones as far as I know. The main one I use is FRAPS, and my computer is powerful enough to handle it, but if you really want to eliminate lag, there are hardware capure cards. Here's a review of one, if you're interested.

Another note, make sure you have tons of space. The best quality videos are HUGE files, so either clear up a lot of space or buy an external hard drive.
