It would be ideal to be able to drag the recording window to record from any monitor (not just the primary one)10 votes
You can also change which of your monitors is “primary” which will let you record from any of your monitors.

for professional purposes.1 vote
You an record for an unlimited time when you have a Pro Account:
Also you can remove the mouse when uploading or saving to a video. Just click on the “Show Advanced Options”

Currently the recorder only works on the standard or old desktop. There isn't anyway to have it record what happens on the Windows 8 Modern Desktop side.1 vote
Actually this isn’t quite right. The recorder must be started from the “normal” desktop. After it’s started you can switch to the new windows 8 “mobile” UI and the recorder will still capture what’s on screen but you won’t see any of the recorder controls until you go back to the “normal” desktop. We’ll work on making this better in the future but that’s how it works today.
Please allow videos to be viewable via html5 rather than flash/Java, so that more mobile users can see your content. My school system blocks YouTube, so that's not an option for me and my students with iDevices.1 vote
Pro account uploads are hosted in flash/html5 which playback in iphone/ipad. For example you can watch this video on the iphone/ipad: http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/u/h/start-recording
This is now enabled in V2.0 for Pro Users
Do you have anything like this?

Add the recorder to your support site by copying and pasting provided HTML code. Your customers can now record a screencast of their problems by clicking the Launch Screen Recorder button. It’s that easy.7 votes
Yes we have a Pro Hosting Recorder API which you can use for this: http://screencast-o-matic.com/goprohosting
When pausing during recording, the SOM menu remains on the screen, covering the work in progress, and it cannot be moved out of the way. This makes it difficult when, for example, I want to skip the recording of part of what I am doing, to keep things concise.
I would like to be able to continue working without the SOM menu in the way. It would be great if an option could be added to minimize the menu, or to be able to move it out of the way.3 votes
You can hide the center drag box by clicking the “Hide” link in the lower left.
I keep adding in my webcam for a screen cast - I run a test. Check sound and video, and then re-start, but forget to re-add the webcam video. So frustrating! Is there no preferences setting that allows me to have the webcam on by default? I'm on ScreencastOMatic Pro. I really want the recorder to default to webcam added or not depending on what I did in the previous recording ... great product otherwise. many thanks in advance5 votes
With the Dec 2012 release the app should remember your last webcam setting and reopen with that setting.
Not every recording required video throughout its duration, for example, I would like to use the webcam at the introduction and conclusion stages of the screencast and not in the body (middle). I cannot manipulate the webcam once it is turned on! WHY?11 votes
Like if i wanted to play music or do a co-op play in my video with a friend, to have an option to use skype of something of the sort to be able to hear what is coming through my speakers/headphones.7 votes
This is already a feature if you have a Pro account and windows vista or later. To enable it follow these instructions: http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cXi3qjYNy
Hi, Can you please add the recording controls to the top of the "box" rather than the bottom? Having them at the bottom usually covers the start/play button on most websites...
We just added this in our Sept. release.
I LOVE the new features, esp the drawing tool. I would like to see the ability for a few different thicknesses for the free hand drawing tool. I make videos drawing music notes on staff paper, and having the tool a little thinner would make it easier to draw notes on the staff. Keep up the great work!1 vote
This is actually already a feature. You change the thickness in the same box you set the color.

New v2 beta out today has the ability to import audio file (mp3 or wav) and use as background music. Let us know what you think. http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/v2
I'd love to see Box as a location to save files. At Box, many of us use SOM daily, and end up having to save local copies. We'd be happy to get you in touch with our platform team to scope and build this! The APIs are located at http://developers.box.com/docs/#tokens-token-object60 votes
With the Pro features you can now directly upload to your box.com account:

You can add a blur using the “Add Overlay” tool as discussed in this video:
I'm not sure what to make of the 3, 2, 1 countdown when pressing record after having paused recording. If that delay is due to hardware or sofware limitations then fine but if it's just programmed in please remove the countdown and just resume recording ASAP. Thanks.1 vote
You can do this with the new settings options for Pro users: http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cl1urbJiI
a video with music in the background is lighten up than a video without music. so my idea is that there is some standard musics come and then you can use those. and that you perhaps can put your own music erin343 votes
