I have been using SnagIt to capture screenshots for long, and can safely say that it is one of the best piece of codes available for this purpose. The promoters of the SnagIt also run a hugely popular service ScreenCast.com, where you can upload your screencast and share them with others.
For those, not knowing what exactly is a screencast…
A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output, often containing audio narration. Just as a screenshot is a picture of a user’s screen, a screencast is essentially a movie of what a user sees on their monitor.
But many people doesn’t know, how to make a screencast ? There are many software available in the market, some are free and some require you to shell out considerable money.
Thankfully, there is a service in the market, which makes all this process super easy.
Welcome to Jing.
Jing is a screen capturing software application, which allows you to select and capture parts of your screen and save that area as a static picture or a movie.
“It sits nicely on your desktop, ready to capture and share your stuff at a moment’s notice. Simply select an area of your screen, capture it as an image or record it as a video, and then click Share. Jing conveniently places a URL to your content on your clipboard ready for you to paste the URL into any of your conversations.
Your files are hosted on Screencast.com, which is a premier hosting website, specifically made for screen video content. It does not change or diminish the resolution of your content and provides detailed permissions to let you control the accessibility of the media. Users of Jing are provided upto 200MB of space for storing media files and 1 GB of bandwidth that renews monthly.
The best part of Jing is its sharing capabilities.
A simple share button, uploads your media behind the scenes, and the URL is placed into your clipboard. Just paste it in your email, your blog posts or wherever you want.
Quick and Easy.
