Welcome to Screencast-O-Matic.com! To get started click the "Start Recording" button to go to the screen recorder page. If it's your first time you may be prompted to download our "Screen Recorder Launcher" to use the recorder from your browser. You can also click this link to install the recorder as a stand alone application on Windows or Mac PC so you can run it outside the browser. After you get setup with the recorder launcher then you can refresh the page to launch the recorder. When the recorder starts you'll see a black and white frame with a menu for the recorder controls. You can choose to record just your screen, webcam, or both the screen and webam using these buttons. The free recorder is limited to create 15 min recordings but you can upgrade to the Pro Recorder to make it unlimited. You can drag and resize this frame to record anything on your screen or choose from some standard HD sizes or fullscreen recording. The recorder will be setup to record the default mic on your computer or you can select a certain mic using this button. If you are on a Windows PC with Vista or later then you can also record the Computer Audio if you have the Pro Recorder. When you are ready to record click the record button and all the action inside the frame will be captured. You can pause and resume the recorder, preview your recording, and restart if needed or click the "Done" button if you're finished recording. After you click "Done" a new window will appear where you can choose to save the recording to a video file, upload to Screencast-O-Matic.com, or YouTube. If you upgrade to the Pro Recorder then you get alot more uploading options which you can see by clicking this icon. The Pro Recorder also adds editing tools to cut, zoom, blur, add overlays, and much more. That's it for this quick intro.
