Easily recording video of an application behavior

At times, when you encounter a bug in an application and want to report it to the manufacturer (e.g. when reporting bugs to Microsoft on Connect), it may help to attach a video demonstrating the problem when you reproduce it.

An easy and free way to capture such video is to use Office Labs Community Clips recorder. The video recorder can be downloaded directly from Clips

When installed and started, the Community Clips application displays an icon in the system tray where recording can be started/stopped.

After stopping the recording, the captured video can be re-played, saved locally as wmv file,  or sent via email.
