                      • Marking Video during recording

                        One feature I use a lot on another platform to screencast is the ability to MARK a moment of the video while recording. I use this all the time to make it easy to go back and hit certain momments for editing. I'd like SOM to be able to do the same. I'd envision it as small, colored lines sit in back of the audio waveform when you are in the editing mode. You could easily move to the next mark and find the moment that needed attention (a sneeze to remove, for example).

                        • screen size can be maipulated, even though to most people it is just common sense!

                          Simply remind customers that they can manipulate the size of the screens they use. I thought i had to use whatever appeared, so I could not see the lower left hand corner record/special tolls/etc. bar anymore once I selected the drawing tools. I got myself thoroughly confused on that one!!

                            • Part of desktop a webcam source

                              I would like to have the possibility so select a part of the desktop as source for the webcam.

                              I use a Canon DSLR as webcam. Via a Canon utility, the image is shown on the desktop. Currently I need to use a third party application that allows me to select a part of the desktop and offer that as a "virtual webcam". Then I select that virtual webcam as the webcam source in screencast-o-matic.

                              Would be nice if this could be done in screencast-o-matic directly

                                • support 4K monitors so the menu isn't so teeny tiny!

                                  For those with 4K displays, the software navigation is very difficult because it is displayed so small on the screen! It's just really hard to use. I know 4K is becoming more common and this huge drawback is the main thing keeping me from recommending this software to all my colleagues.
