I'm using Retina Macbook Pro running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Is it possible to use QuickTime to capture both audio and screen ? If not, what are the free apps that can do it?

P.S. A lot of the times I see on Youtube that it possible to capture screen + audio + have a little window of yourself in the corner - how is that achived?

Theres a few youtube videos that show you how to do this (as best it can) with quick time, heres a good one.

Quicktime is far from the best screen recording software though, and it won't give you the picture in picture you're looking for. I don't know of any free software that will but screenflow is one of the most popular paid apps and it's under a hundred bucks so if you want really nice screencasts, take a look at it.

This is a Youtube video I produced on how to do it entirely for free: record CPU audio as well as Mic Audio while doing a screen capture. You'd think that it would be a standard feature...

It should work just fine!

Good Luck
