Camtasia 8 tutorial recommends installing only DivX codec pack for lossy screen recordings.  Unfortunately DivX is no longer providing codec pack per the site link TechSmith provides in improving performance tutorial.  What codec or lossy based alternative can be used now?  Please let me know.  Thank you

That's actually an old tutorial, looks like from Camtasia Studio 5 or 6. With Camtasia Studio 8, we added a new codec (TSC2) that does a much better job of capturing high-motion content. I would recommend using that (it's part of the default recording settings) rather than installing DivX.
