    Great video! I just customized a snippet I downloaded from an online library. It inserts a ternary operator in C#. I wish I would have seen this video first!  :O

    Screen capture by Camtasia. Video capture by a normal camcorder. Then I used a popular video editing software to sync and postprocess each part. I exported as uncompressed video, and then used Windows Media Encoder to compress. The video should be 800x600, and around 100MBs/10mins.

    Very useful video. I think I've though about whether this was possible some time in the past, but never bothered to look it up. This will definitely come in handy. Thank you.
