  1. invalid default file naming

    change the default file naming to have no hash sigh in the name of the recoding. Reason: when the default saving location is changed to a server which doesnt allow a hash sign in the file name, the file cannot be uploaded until you changed the name to some valid value.
    e.g. I am working with OneDrive and the sync client doesnt upload files with hash signs in the filename.

  3. Sound of mouse click

    A way to pause without hearing the sound of the mouse/keyboard. This drives me insane on playback as I hear the click.

  5. Greater zooming of the timeline

    Allow me to zoom out the timeline of a video to whatever extent I need (currently its just two steps). This will help in precisely aligning various overlays and other effects.

  8. Toolbar below timeline

    I would LOVE to see a toolbar either between the timeline and the slider or below the slider. This would contain all the buttons that are now in the Tools popup menu. That menu could remain for those who prefer using it. The SOM workflow is wonderfully efficient already, but I think this would turbo charge my production! :) The icons are already there in the menu. The same icons could be used in the toolbar. Currently I count around 20, which should fit perfectly well in a toolbar.

  9. Live

    I am a YouTuber and this is a very good screen recorder for free, maybe make it where we can live stream on YouTube, and look at it this way, If you leave the water mark for non pro members you it could promote your app and more people start to use it. It's just an idea. Like I said I'm a YouTuber and I would really like to live stream without a captor card and an encorder.

  10. Up the Frame Rate and maybe 1080HD

    I'm not asking for 60 frame rates per second, but maybe up it to 45 or 50. When I'm recording the game I'm playing my computer is running smoothly, but after I finish recording the frame rate cuts a little bit. I know it could be hard because you guys work on so many updates, but I hope that you guys can fix this, thanks for being so amazing Screencast-O-Matic.com

  11. Place audio and video into separate tracks so they can be edited independently.

    In scripted recordings, it sometimes becomes necessary to change where the audio begins in relation to what's happening in the video. Rather than needing to re-record the entire video and hope you get it right this time, it would be nice to simply move where the audio track begins. Separating the tracks would also allow more flexibility with video playback, such as speed and pause.

  12. I want to upload a .srt file for closed captions for my video

    I would like to upload a .srt file to my video to add closed captions. This would allow me to make the recordings in lecture format, have the recording transcribed, and upload the transcription file (.srt) to the video to add closed or open captions.

  16. Add Markers to Video Track, like Bookmarks

    Just the ability to set markers at various places in the video during editing to be able to find locations quickly. If it currently has this, I can't seem to find it anywhere

  18. Pinned Recordings

    I have brief intro and exit videos that I add to the beginning and end of a series of videos. Right now I use the search function to locate those when I insert them. It might be nice to be able to pin certain recordings so they appear at the top of the list. So you could pin/unpin videos to make them more easily accessible.

  19. Create Redact Tool

    Similar to the draw & zoom tool, it would be very extremely beneficial to create a redaction tool to Redact/Blur sensitive data while recording.
