Was trying to create a small training video or say a small video blog.
But from how I see it I can either use my webcam to record myself i.e. create my own recording using webcam Or I can create a screencast along with my voice.
But you folks at Oreilly Videos have videos where a speaker is speaking and seamlessly the speaker is able to share his screen.
How is it done?
- Is it seamless Or you guys do some kind of video editing

We often use a video switcher that allows us to bring in multiple video sources (cameras, computer screens, tablets, etc) and then perform a live switch between the different sources. There are also instances when we capture computer screens with screen capture software like Telestream Screenflow or TechSmith's Camtasia and capture the video with a seperate camera or webcam. After capturing we do an edit with Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere to combine the screencast with live-action video. When recording the audio it's best to use a quality microphone - there are some inexpensive usb mics that do a great job. If you have a lot of on-camera and screencast footage that needs to be synced you can use a program like PluralEyes to lock your sync.
