      • Please make work with Chromebooks / html5

        I work for a school that is going 1:1 chromebooks. I use your service with students quite often and have been looking for a screencasting solution that will work with Chromebooks.

              • Better frame rate support

                My online education site that I use this great piece of software for is now accepting 1080p 60fps. It would be great to be able to deliver this high quality HD format now.

                Also, it would be nice to be able to change the FPS. It's not a big deal breaker but it outputs 25fps and sometimes I mix it with other USA standard 30fps or even 60fps.

                • Full screen mode for games

                  Maybe this feature works and I just can't get it too but.. the recorder doesn't work if you open a video game in full screen. I would be even happier with your great product if it could overlap on top of full screen and still show the camera and record footage. If this feature works and I just don't know about it, please write back.

                  • Show keystrokes

                    I would love it to show the keys I am typing in the lower right corner. When I show shortcuts in my webcasts, it often involves clicking ALT, TAB, or other 'invisible' keystrokes. I would like to show the view that those keys were being pressed.

                        • Add a scheduler calendar to start timed recordings when we're away

                          Allow us to set a calendar function to start, record for xx minutes, stop and hold in queue until we return to save the file. If possible, allow us to preset the 'save' parameters; name, type, publish to... functions.

                            • To make an option to add a title screen or Intro

                              I know it's hard coding, but if you could add the ability to add a title screen or intro to the video that would be super cool!

                              • Full offline installer to avoid Internet connection requirement.

                                Hello.

                                I have limited and slow Internet access and noticed Screencast-O-Matic required an Internet connection to download updates, encoder (MP4), etc.

                                There needs to be a full installer to download to avoid these downloads, so I can use the installed Screencast-O-Matic without the Internet. I only need to record short videos of my desktops offline.

                                Thank you in advance. :)

                                    • Allow speed changes that include audio

                                      The ability to change the speed of a recording is nice, but I would really like to have the option to speed the audio up and stay in sync with the video (as opposed to just the video being sped up now). Of course, the pitch of the voice should remain the same after being sped up.

                                      I also think finer grained control would be nice. Either a custom field where we can type the speed multiple or something that includes 1.25, 1.5, and 2x.

                                      Thanks!
