  2. Auto Stop

    Have a setting to auto stop a recording. One setting could simply be time - stop after so many 00:00:00 (hours/minutes/seconds) Better would be to ascertain if anything is actual changing on the screen and if not, stop the recording. This would allow someone to begin a lengthy recording and walk away knowing that the recording will be done when they return.

  3. Install for All Users

    When the installer runs it installs for the currently logged on users. Ideally, there'd be an option to install for all users so whoever logs on to the particular workstation can launch screen cast from 1 single shortcut.

    This is how the new v2 beta install works. Its only for Pro users at this time but we will also offer a free version at some point like we do for v1.

  4. Auto looping button for music.

    I tried the new Beta. Seems my music ran out of time during my recording and there wasn't a function to loop the song. If you can add that function would be great. Also a blur option to keep a blur area for the whole video. Having to manually put it in certain times is time wasting. Maybe a click button will appear them manually make like a quick square... I hope I'm not confusing you lol.

  5. 4K Quality Feature

    I really need to record in 4K quality because it will make my overall videos better and attract more viewers and subscribers to my channel, resulting in a happier me. I've been using screencast for over a year now and it is by far the best and easiest to use screen recording software but if you put 4K in then screencast would get so many more users. the only other thing i can think of is the watermark on the bottom left, please make it a little smaller or just remove it.

    You can record fullscreen on a 4k monitor but it might not be the best option when sharing with many users that don’t have such a large monitor.

  6. Ctrl+Z feature

    It seems nice the Ctrl+Z feature in SOM tool, allowing users to undo your recent changes.

  7. Allow viewer the option to turn on or off the captions

    Part of meeting accessibility requirements to provide option to turn on or off closed captioning by clicking a CC button, etc. For some viewers, captions interfere with processing, for others they are necessary. Can interface provide option?

  8. Background music over talking

    I make a video of me talking over the top of it but also want to add a track of music low in the background next to my voice to sweeten tutorials and eliminate background noise / fuzz (the music will help with this)

  12. Delete any edit, not just latest

    It would be nice if we could delete any edit we've made, not just the latest one we performed. Thanks

  15. enlarging part of the screen

    Hi,

    I seen this feature on a youtube tutorial and thought it could be a cool feature. Its at 9 minutes into the tutorial and the bit I am talking about is at 9.06 minutes.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx21y9eJq1U#t=540

    Basically rather then zooming into an area, what it seems to do is use a frame as a background image and then pop up a cutout of a smaller area that is being worked on.

  16. add volume control in the edit section

    I find that the recorded volume on many of the videos I record is too low. If you could add the ability to increase or decrease the volume in the editing section of the video that would be awesome!

  17. One-Step Upload for Customers Directly into our Account for End-User Support Issues

    I find SOM a wonderful tool and we recommend it to our customers to record their PC based problems they are experiencing with our products and software and then upload the video. This has a few issues - one is that customers have to send us the file, which can often be too large to send over email (nor do we like getting them send to our CRM system mail address.) The second issue is that if they don't email them, they have to post them and we don't want our customers content posted publicly to the internet, nor do…

  18. Don't add, remove noise

    Instead of adding noise to silent sections, I'd rather have Screencast-O-Matic filter noise from the recording. Right now I use Audacity to perform that step, but it would be a lot more convenient if Screencast-O-Matic did that for me.

  19. Java Plugin is a Security Risk

    I went here:
    http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tools-and-tips/sublime-text-2-tips-and-tricks/
    and saw this: "Java Plugin Needed"

    Most sane developers disable Java. Especially Mac developers (after a recent attack on an iOS dev site). Please use an alternative. Otherwise, it's a great idea. Thanks!

  20. Please make work with Chromebooks / html5
