Is there some other videomaking program thats for free?
I had this question before. If you still want sound recorded get ZD Soft Game Recorder here.
It isn't that great. I myself have a stronger dislike for Fraps than ZD Soft though.
If you do not really care for recording the sound (like if you want to make a music video) definitely get Game Cam. It records really well, with a sweet profile manager and the videos do not take up Gigabytes worth of space. The only draw-back is that it is a watermarked version and the main watermark is that you cannot record sound. Everything else is pretty much fine. Unlimited record times by the way. Find it here. I recommend getting the lite package, you seem to get more. And if sound matters not in your video, I would highly, very highly, recommend Gamecam. Like I said, the only large drawback is that no sound is recorded. Also note that any game recorded in Steam stutters quite a bit, especially newer games like Episode One and Half-Life 2 (even though it is three years old). You could record HL:S or the older Half-Life games probably on Game Cam without stutter.
Just to wonder, what are you PC Specs?
You could also use the built-in Source recorder if you wanted to specifically record games that run on the Source engine.

There is a Source recorder! Sweet.
Yeah and it's amazing! No lag whatsoever and you can record at the same resolution as your computer screen. I recorded my G-Man video with it.
How do you use it? I would like to do a video review sometime for my site on HL games. Like Episode Two.
I think I've found something, however, if this doesn't work, your best bet would be to ask someone while playing online.... Multi-Demo Recorder Script For Source Engine Games, Half-Life 2 Downloads, Half-Life 2 Utilities
You could try what Malestrom suggested, but I've never used that so I don't know how it works. The tutorial at the link below is pretty good (I didn't make it). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4MK_XJeNqA You'll need the program VirtualDub and the K-Lite Codec pack to do it but it's pretty easy. Let me know how it works. I could write out directions if you want me to.
