What features do you want to see in Screencast-O-Matic?

  1. add volume control in the edit section

    I find that the recorded volume on many of the videos I record is too low. If you could add the ability to increase or decrease the volume in the editing section of the video that would be awesome!

  2. One-Step Upload for Customers Directly into our Account for End-User Support Issues

    I find SOM a wonderful tool and we recommend it to our customers to record their PC based problems they are experiencing with our products and software and then upload the video. This has a few issues - one is that customers have to send us the file, which can often be too large to send over email (nor do we like getting them send to our CRM system mail address.) The second issue is that if they don't email them, they have to post them and we don't want our customers content posted publicly to the internet, nor do…

  3. Don't add, remove noise

    Instead of adding noise to silent sections, I'd rather have Screencast-O-Matic filter noise from the recording. Right now I use Audacity to perform that step, but it would be a lot more convenient if Screencast-O-Matic did that for me.

  4. Java Plugin is a Security Risk

    I went here:
    http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tools-and-tips/sublime-text-2-tips-and-tricks/
    and saw this: "Java Plugin Needed"

    Most sane developers disable Java. Especially Mac developers (after a recent attack on an iOS dev site). Please use an alternative. Otherwise, it's a great idea. Thanks!

  6. Please make work with Chromebooks / html5

    I work for a school that is going 1:1 chromebooks. I use your service with students quite often and have been looking for a screencasting solution that will work with Chromebooks.

  8. Provide embed code for https site

    Due to updates in Firefox I can no longer embed a screencast-o-matic video on our college VLE (which is a https site).
    You tube and Slideshare now provide embed code suitable for https. Please follow suit Screencast o matic.

  9. Anchors for navigating through longer videos.

    I created a 45 minute instructional video and wanted users to be able to jump to the section of interest to them so inserted a screenshot with timelines, but would love to be able to click and go to that point in the video. I'm a new users, so maybe this is already an option, but I didn't see it.

  10. Include the option https for embed codes

    It would be nice to have a check box to make embed codes use https and not just http. Newer version of browsers like Firefox Block this for mixed content on a web pages.

  11. allow to pay with Paypal subscription

    Paypal allows safe and secure transactions while also offering an alternative method of payment (aside from any credit or debit card) due to having an extra merchant account, whether it's business or personal. This also helps with most international buyers, as international credit cards have many restrictions and Paypal usually pays the conversion costs from the client (foreign) instead of the merchant (ScreencastOMatic).

  12. Allow propage admin user to create channels with other shared users to upload

    We are planning on multiple users creating videos through the Propage. However, if two users were recording screencasts for 1 channel on separate computers they are unable to submit videos to the channel together. You should make the admin account associated with propage be able create global channels that propage users can choose to upload the videos to.

  14. importing video and music

    It would be really awesome if there were a way to import mp4 video to be included into a SOM. Also, I would like an easier way of importing music that can be placed at a lower volume with my narration. I love screencast and would love to see these things added to make my videos better.

  15. let pro users organize our videos into folders

    After recording many videos, they start to stack up in the Recordings section of the program, if I could create playlists or folders to organize them, that would help me to keep track of all of the videos.

  17. create more ways to organize channels.

    So that you could create a group, and within that group have a number of channels, to make it possible to not have so many channels in the dropdown menu to sort through.

  18. no ads for paid accounts

    It would be nice to have no ads in the paid accounts area. It's a bit of a distraction to see it.

  19. give Pro users a link BEFORE the upload is finished.

    Your tool is truly the best. I use it to reply to emails .. because it's faster.

    I would love it that I receive the sharing link as soon as I start uploading.

    That way I can email my client with the link but not have to wait for the upload to complete.

    Plus, extra marketing opportunity for you : when the client receives the link, and the upload isn't finished yet, you will have a visitor that is waiting.... (during which time you can convert them to join Screencastomatic)

    win-win!

    Again, stellar product!
    Tom

  20. Allow multiple recordings to be stored and accessed at any time

    We can store our recording in case one gets deleted, and we can access them if we need
