Ability to move from one computer to another

I want to be able to work from more than one computer. Currently the work I do in one screen cast does not appear when I open the browser on my other computers. This is a big problem for me!

    With the new secure backup feature, you can easily store recordings online and access them on any machine. This will allow you to move seamlessly between computers. This is included as part of every Solo Premier Plan.

    You can learn more about the secure backup here:

        Sharing a recording among multiple recordings is doable. I use SOM on my work computer and laptop.

        Create a folder in Google Docs, or other cloud service, drag the SOM 'recordings' folder into it. Then in SOM, change the record-to folder (upper left) to that new cloud folder.

        On your second computer do the same. This way all recordings are stored in one location and available to multiple computers.

        On occasion, I do get a Google Drive error dialog is triggered by SOM. Dialog says Google Drive must restart. Screenshot: https://goo.gl/zD3MqM

        Sync time depends on your total recordings. My current 265 recordings consume 75.4GB. Sync has to go both up and down to all machines. Let it run overnight if you've got a lot.

        Yes, please give us the ability to record on one computer but access and edit the recording on another computer. I also use multiple computers based on whether I need a touch screen or not. My primary computer is not mobile but I need to be able to edit any recording on my primary computer, not just download a video file version of the recording.
