Recording onscreen videos

Have you seen a wonderful movie onscreen like the Hero Movie in tackfilm and then for some reason, you want to save it but they won't allow you?

There are a number of ways to do so including but not limited to:
a.) Exploring your browser's cache
b.) Physically putting your video camera in front of the screen
c.) Using a screen capture software

Browsing your browser's cache may not be applicable to tech noobs. But the last two options might be your hope. This post will focus on the third method.

Example I would like to have a video copy of the Hero Movie I created at en.tackfilm.se, I will use Hyperionic's Hypercam to record the movie while it is playing onscreen. Simple as that. However, you need a fast PC to accomplish a satisfactory result.
