is a screencast tool that works in almost any Operating system and requires Java to run.
It’s a very simple program with only 3 basic controls: Record, Snap for still pictures, and the
Arrow button used to adjust the borders of your recording area. It’s very simple without all
those complicated features that other screencast tools offer, but it can be powerful too
because of some additional features such as timer-controlled recording. You can also use it
for recording streaming video and audio.

produce outputs in AVI or SWF format. It enables annotation such as text and call out
inserts and even provides you some cursor options such as default, hidden or highlighted,
which should be carefully laid out prior to recording. You have some video options too,
which lets you control compression, frame rates, quality, and time lapse. However, it doesn’t
include editing capabilities.

activity and do “picture-in-picture” video by adding your webcam stream. It provides you 3
frame rate options: 5, 10 and 15 frames per second and outputs can be produced in either
AVI or FLV format. It has built-in features that let you adjust the boundaries of your
recording area; use hotkeys to pause and resume recording. Outputs are saved on the site
and can be shared via email links or embedded on websites.
is a screencast tool which has both web-based and desktop versions. It’s
very easy to use and will run so long as you have Java installed on your computer. It has free
video hosting and allows you to record your screen or both your screen and webcam. You may also
publish your output directly to YouTube. The free versions of Screencast-O-Matic have
limited features though. For instance, there’s a 15-minute recording time limit, there’s a small
watermark when recording, it doesn’t allow webcam-only recording, and it doesn’t allow you
to zoom and annotate while recording.
