Video screen capture on a Win10 machine

So I wanted to go through a set of photos on Flickr and record narration to my ZoomH2N. I tried the Xbox app that gamers use to record their gameplay, I think it is called GameDVR. It didn't work. I couldn't convince my computer that an internet browser was a game. I downloaded a trial of SnagIT. I recorded in SnagIT and on my Zoom H2N. The video file was a small MP4 that was 10.9fps. I dropped it into premiere and when I went to put the audio with it I have found myself making multiple cuts because the audio and video do not line up and there is no rhyme or reason to how many times I have to cut and when. Unfortunately I was using the mouse pointer to point things out in the photos. I gave up on the edit and may try to do it without the pointer recorded so I can just have a static image in the edit.

Long morning with nothing to show from it...

Open Broadcast Software. It captures using x264 directly to H.264 MP4s compatible in Premiere. (Yes, there's a local recording feature in it!)

I made this Odyssey 7Q+ tutorial using OBS and Premiere:
