    • Add option to record video sections before audio in Scripted

      Scripted is the best way to create a smooth video fast and with few errors.
      But i would be even easier if it was possible start with writing the script --> afterwards record the video in clips --> and then record the Audio in clips while you can see the recorded Video and Script :-)

      • Add option to turn on/off mouse click sounds

        A mouse sound click option is really necessary for tutorials. The visual effect is good, but people are not always looking the video, because they're following the instructions on their own screen.

        • Stats for Video Veiws

          I love Screencast O Matic and have a premium account with you. However, I was wondering if there is a way to implement stats for video views. For example, I could see how many people viewed my video, their general locations, country, etc. The reason I am asking this is because some of these videos I am using to post to my social media account and would like to see stats like this to see how well my videos are doing...or not. Does anything like that exist now or perhaps something that could happen soon?? :)

                  • Capture the IPs of those that have used Pro-Recorder using the Site License

                    As the admin of the use of Screencast-O-Matic, I'd like to know who's using the tool. IP seems like it might be the simplest, but an email address would be much better.

                      • Make screenshots easier

                        Add access to static screen shots as a recording option for those times a picture is worth a thousand frames.

                        • ...add pasting voice overs, text align tool and basic grid snapping

                          When doing software tutorials, you record various snippets, then put them together with a short title and end sequence - but one can then not add voice-overs in the exact places one wants for the duration one wants. Scripted recordings are very cumbersome. Much easier to paste multiple video snippets together and later add voice-overs from external sources like pro speakers, etc.

                          When using text overlays, one can not align the text left, right or centre and, even worse, position the text boxes consistently; without any grid snapping, they just jump around, unless one puts the text in the default…

                              • Bring Back Full Screen Gaming Recording

                                I want to be able to record game in Full Screen. Back in one of the previous updates I was able to with Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, then I tried with Five Nights at CAndy's a couple months later and the recorder disappeared. Now I recently tried with Microsoft 3D Pinball and Polar Golfer and the recorder only stayed on the home page and didn't record the game. So idk if it was just the previous updates that changed it or what, but I would really apperciate it if the feature would come back. Thanks :)

                                      • Improved contact management, video email and viewership analytics features

                                        -Improved viewership analytics
                                        -In-app contact and email management with 'reply to' address set to my email
                                        -Auto & manually generated thumbnails inserted within video email feature. Open rates improve when a thumbnail with the 'play' icon is within the email
                                        -BombBomb is a system I've also been testing but I much prefer the screencast and other features within Screencast-o-matic

                                          Allow videos to play while annotations remain!

                                          I use screencast-o-matic to record video analysis for my athletes. I would LOVE to be able to draw on the screen and still have videos play in the background. Right now as soon as I start annotating, the recording is frozen and I have to delete the drawings/annotations in order to get the video I'm reviewing to play again.
