    v2.0 can create GIF video. If you have a Pro account then you can click on the option to “Save As Video File” then click the “Type” option to select GIF

  2. 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.

  3. Prepare for a new YouTube authentication process

    https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6140397

    That's a link that you will want to read in order to keep the "publish to YouTube" feature viable. Just a heads up in case no one else has brought this to your attention.

  4. Privacy settings

    Being able to choose who can watch my video. Unlike youtube anyone can watch. If we have an array of selections such as;

    all
    emails we select
    facebook
    only those with a password
    I am sure there are other categories.

    but having an array of choices can help protect content for pro users.

    You can setup a password on your uploads or we have Team Pro Hosting which lets you create a community of users and only share with certain ones.

  5. Horizontally mirror the webcam

    at the moment, when the cursor is on the right of the screen, my head points to the left. when the cursor is on the left, my head is turned to the right.
    with an option to mirror the cam, it would appear that my head and eyes (aproximately) follow the mouse cursor. feels more natural to the viewer.

  7. Have a place to write a narration

    It would be nice to have a place for a narration so you can read while you are creating your video. Also, music addition would be nice. Maybe you already have this, and I'm missing it!
    I do love Screencastomatic!
    Thanks.

  9. Normalize audio

    Use Case:

    I often find I need to insert a bit of audio narration, often several little snippets.
    And then I need to adjust the audio of each snippet.

    It would be FANTASTIC to have an option to normalize all the Narration or Computer audio.

    I think this is very doable as programs like Goldwave can do this.

    SOM rocks, BTW!

  10. OAuth1 for google going away..

    Hi, Not sure if you're aware but when I allow google access to my youtube account I get a message saying "OAuth1" will no longer be supported in April. Will we still be able to post to YouTube after that?

    Thanks,
    Matt

  12. Auto Stop

    Have a setting to auto stop a recording. One setting could simply be time - stop after so many 00:00:00 (hours/minutes/seconds) Better would be to ascertain if anything is actual changing on the screen and if not, stop the recording. This would allow someone to begin a lengthy recording and walk away knowing that the recording will be done when they return.

  13. Install for All Users

    When the installer runs it installs for the currently logged on users. Ideally, there'd be an option to install for all users so whoever logs on to the particular workstation can launch screen cast from 1 single shortcut.

    This is how the new v2 beta install works. Its only for Pro users at this time but we will also offer a free version at some point like we do for v1.

  14. Auto looping button for music.

    I tried the new Beta. Seems my music ran out of time during my recording and there wasn't a function to loop the song. If you can add that function would be great. Also a blur option to keep a blur area for the whole video. Having to manually put it in certain times is time wasting. Maybe a click button will appear them manually make like a quick square... I hope I'm not confusing you lol.

  16. 4K Quality Feature

    I really need to record in 4K quality because it will make my overall videos better and attract more viewers and subscribers to my channel, resulting in a happier me. I've been using screencast for over a year now and it is by far the best and easiest to use screen recording software but if you put 4K in then screencast would get so many more users. the only other thing i can think of is the watermark on the bottom left, please make it a little smaller or just remove it.

    You can record fullscreen on a 4k monitor but it might not be the best option when sharing with many users that don’t have such a large monitor.

  17. Flip webcam video

    Can you add the ability to flip the video horizontally so that you get the perspective of the person being recorded rather than from the perspective of the computer looking at them. The reason would be that it will do an eye-track study (rough but effective).

  18. Ctrl+Z feature

    It seems nice the Ctrl+Z feature in SOM tool, allowing users to undo your recent changes.

  19. Allow viewer the option to turn on or off the captions

    Part of meeting accessibility requirements to provide option to turn on or off closed captioning by clicking a CC button, etc. For some viewers, captions interfere with processing, for others they are necessary. Can interface provide option?

  20. Background music over talking

    I make a video of me talking over the top of it but also want to add a track of music low in the background next to my voice to sweeten tutorials and eliminate background noise / fuzz (the music will help with this)
