The Screencast-O-Matic recorder can store your recordings at a place of your choosing on your computer. You can even store in multiple locations if desired.
By default, recordings are stored in the Documents folder on both PC and Mac.
In order to change the location of where your recordings go, open up the Video editor content management screen, and click on the folder in the upper left.
This dropdown will appear with your current saved locations. If you already have locations added besides the default, they will show up in the area denoted by the pink box in the image below.
If you already have locations saved, simply click on the name of that location to bring up the recordings stored there.
If you want to add a new location to save your recordings, click on the "Browse" option in the dropdown.
Once you locate a folder you would like to begin saving to, click to submit. Please note you may need to create the folder beforehand with your OS in order to select it in this dialog.
The location to save recordings is now set to this chosen location. Additionally, you should now see this folder as an option in the dropdown when changing back to this location.
If you already have some recordings, you may choose to move them to a new location for purposes of organization.
- First click on the "Manage Recordings" checkbox in the upper left. (For more on managing recordings click here)
- Next click on "Move"
- Finally, click on the folder in the drop down that you'd like to move them to. Alternatively you can choose "Browse..." to move the recordings into a new location.
Now your recordings can be managed in different locations, all easily switchable by using the folder icon in the upper left corner.
