Why is it that all audio in Camtasia video recordings must pass through a microphone?
When we are screen capturing such thinks as YouTube clips it would be much better if the audio could be captured directly just like the video screen shots are captured?

Good news! As someone who had to explain how to "trick" Windows or provide various levels of work-arounds if one wanted to record their system audio (sound from the speakers) I was so excited when CS version 7.0 made it easy. Check out the 1:10 section of this video:

If you have Windows XP though, you may still have issues and have to do it "the old way" depending on your sound card.

Camtasia for Mac also makes it easy to capture system audio.
