  1. Have an option to increase the size of the cursor

    I'd rather have a larger cursor to make it more visible rather than the halo ring. I know you can turn the halo off, but that leaves you with a normal size cursor.

  2. 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!

  3. have an option to allow videos to autoplay rather than a user having to click the play button.

    Currently if add the a video to your site, the user must click the play button to start the video. In some situations it would be to our advantage to have a video start playing immediately when a person hits our website for the video to autoplay.

  5. Playlist of screencasts

    I have many multi-part lectures that I would like to be able to send students to with a single url.

    If we could create playlists, this would allow a series of screencasts to be linked together and referenced with a single URL.

    Thanks for considering this.

  7. SOM script should accept audio from computer and not only microphone

    I liked the SOM script concept however I'm unable to use it because I'm editing audio snippets in Audacity and playing them back through the computer. I wanted match the audio files with the scripts recording but unfortunately it only takes audio from the mike.

    Fantastic product though !

  8. Prompt for channel password instead of saying "Locked Channel"

    Hi, if I send a link out to people for a video in a password protected channel -- can the your system ask them to enter the channel password instead of telling them "Sorry this video is from a locked channel".

    It's not obvious to them what they are supposed to do, so if you could prompt them to type the channel password instead it will save a lot of clicks and it will save me a lot of support headaches.

    Thanks!

  11. Auto upload to screencast

    I hate that when I upload to youtube and then go home and try to fix a mistake on my other computer, that video cant be accessed. I wish that it would let you upload anywhere but still save it to your account.

  12. 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.

  18. animation features

    creating presentations and using text w overlay, it'd be nice if you could animate the text. for that matter, it'd be nice and fun to have animated transitions (swirling in, dancing in, bounce, etc)
