  1. Ability to import mp4 and .mov files

    How much better it would be to have an option to import other standard video files than just .som files.
    Surely this would not be a difficult task and would add IMMENSE value to Pro users. I'd be happy to pay extra for this feature,..you could at least double the annual fee and I would gleefully pay it ;-)

    I love S-O-M... so simple to use and a great alternative to other options.

  3. Add songs for a video.

    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 erin

  4. 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.

  6. Capture video on the secondary monitor in a dual monitor system.

    For us professional web presenters your product is AWESOME! (Just bought pro today.) Problem is we need the primary monitor NOT visible to the audience so we can toggle between applications and programs when we're presenting. Please, Please, Please move this capability up the development list! Thanks.

  8. Import narration for Scripted Recording

    If in the scripting function, we could upload mp3s to the scripts for which we would then record video, that would be helpful. I am in the situation where I am making videos whose not all of the audio is being recorded in-house.

  9. Add support for Box (box.net)

    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-object

  10. Add a memory tracker/estimated time left for recording

    It would be good to know beforehand how much recording time I have left so I know whether to clear space before I begin.

  12. Allow webcam size and position changes during edits

    Allow the webcan inset size and position to be changed through an edit action so it is different in different segments of the recording. For example, I might want to start and finish with the webcam full screen and reduce it in size during other parts of the recording. Depending on the material, I might want the image in a different place during some parts of the recording.

    I can achieve the desired result now by recording each segment with a different webcam size or position separately and then splicing them together (Pro) but it would be easier and more…

  13. Vimeo Integration

    I would love to see the option to upload a video straight to Vimeo in the same way that you can upload to YouTube.

  16. Add text during recording

    It would be great to add text during recording.
    Example:
    I am a flightsimmer nd use Prepar3D together with Google Earth.
    During the flight I pass interesting locations from which I can see the name in Google Earth.
    If I just could enter that name in the recording for an editable amount of seconds that would be splendid.
    Currently I have to pause the recording, note the time and the location and afterwards edit the recording. Lot of work.

  18. allow to pay with Paypal subscription

    Paypal allows safe and secure transactions while also offering an alternative method of payment (aside from any credit or debit card) due to having an extra merchant account, whether it's business or personal. This also helps with most international buyers, as international credit cards have many restrictions and Paypal usually pays the conversion costs from the client (foreign) instead of the merchant (ScreencastOMatic).

  19. convert script file to captions file

    After recording with a script file it could be good to be able to convert it to a captions file.
    This way it wouldn't have to be re-entered when we want to have additional captions

  20. 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!
