Why can I only record for 5 minutes on the Screencast-O-Matic screen recorder?

The Screencast-O-Matic screen recorder requires free space on your hard drive in order to capture screen recordings.  You could be running low on free hard drive space which can limit how long you can record for.


Freeing up more space on the hard drive should fix the problem in most cases.
