Team Plan Admins: Enable or Disable Upload Endpoints for the Screencast-O-Matic App

The Screencast-O-Matic desktop application allows a user to publish their recording to a video file or upload their recording to services like Screencast-O-Matic, Youtube, Vimeo, and Dropbox.  As an admin, you may choose to remove upload endpoints presented in the app for your users. 

An admin may find and modify these settings in the Team Recorder Settings.

Following are the services you can enable/disable as a destination for publish:

  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • Screencast-O-Matic
  • Vimeo
  • Youtube
  • Video File

This feature is available to all admins with a Team Deluxe or Team Premier plan.

Please note: at least one destination must be enabled or your team members may have their content stuck on their machine.

Also note, this feature does not apply to the Chromebook application.

Enable or Disable Publishing Endpoints

1. Login at Screencast-O-Matic.com, click your user icon and then click Settings.

2. On the left sidebar, ciick Team Recorder.  Under Upload Endpoints you will see all options are checked (on) by default.



3. Remove the checkmark next to the endpoints that you want to disable.  Disabling an endpoint means those options will no longer show up in the lower right menu in the desktop application when previewing a recording.

4. Click Update Recorder and Editor Settings.


Verify the endpoints are enabled or disabled

You can verify the endpoints are disabled by doing the following:

  1. Go to your team access page or login as a Team Premier member and launch the recorder or open the video editor.
  2. Either create a new recording or click on one in the content management screen and you will enter a preview mode for the recording.
  3. On the lower right, you will see a menu with options for uploading or downloading the file.  If you don't see these options initially, you can click the Screen_Shot_2018-12-20_at_10.43.32_PM.png icon to bring up the complete list of publishing options. 
  4. Verify that your selected endpoints are enabled or disabled in this publishing menu.  The menu may look similar to the below
