    Windows doesn't have any built in features that will capture on screen as video. Some games will allow you to record what happens as video.

    I don't offhand know of any 3rd party programs that will do this, but I'm sure there are some, you shouldn't have to resort to physically recording with a webcam or camcorder.

    Perhaps someone else may know of some software that will do this.

    Fraps is good. I've used that myself. But I haven't used the other.
