Things To Know #

With Screencast-O-Matic you can take screenshots (pictures of your screen), or screen captures (video of what’s happening on your screen).

When screen capturing there are options to record just the screen, just a webcam, or to record both a webcam and screen at the same time, along with your computer audio. You can also adjust the size of the screen capture to record a specific part of the screen, and use your microphone for narration.

Videos can be saved directly to your computer or uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or a cloud storage drive like Google Drive or Dropbox.

It is important to note that the video editor does not come with the free version of the software. If you want to make edits to your screen recording, you will need to use separate video editing software.
