What about the audio? I mean systems sounds not post-production voice overs.

Virtual Box question.

"This allows you to run a complete computer operating system right inside windows" Is what you said at about 3:00 minutes in about Virtual Box.

I actually say, "Right inside a window, so you can..." -- but I see where it sounds like I don't quite pause long enough between "window" and "so."

That said, VirtualBox does indeed run on Microsoft Windows if you so desire to use it in that way. I don't think any of the screencasting software I mention have Windows ports though...
