Could anyone please suggest me a good screen recording tool for Mac. I'm trying to use the iShowU, but somehow I don't know how to get a video os what I clock and show in my Mac.

I have found the built in Quicktime Player to be pretty decent.

Quicktime screen recording does not work! I did the following:

1. Opened Quicktime
2. Clicked New Screen Recording under File
3. Selected the area that I want to record
4. Click Record

After a couple of seconds, I get the following message:

The operation could not be completed!

I figured it out. I had to change permissions on my Movies folder! It worked! Cool Thanks!

You can get that message if it does not have permission to write a file to the configured target directory. Perhaps check that.

Otherwise, I don't know what to say. It always works just nicely for me.

Edit: You figured this out already

You shouldn't need to be adjusting permissions by hand -- you might want to investigate why the permissions were askew in the first place.
