  2. Add support for Box (box.net)

    I'd love to see Box as a location to save files. At Box, many of us use SOM daily, and end up having to save local copies. We'd be happy to get you in touch with our platform team to scope and build this! The APIs are located at http://developers.box.com/docs/#tokens-token-object

  4. A blurring feature so we can hide information for security reasons...

    Example: If you are making a video logged into an account and the account information (screen name, certain fields, etc) needs to remain private.

  5. Faster recording resume after pausing

    I'm not sure what to make of the 3, 2, 1 countdown when pressing record after having paused recording. If that delay is due to hardware or sofware limitations then fine but if it's just programmed in please remove the countdown and just resume recording ASAP. Thanks.

  6. Add songs for a video.

    a video with music in the background is lighten up than a video without music. so my idea is that there is some standard musics come and then you can use those. and that you perhaps can put your own music erin

  8. Allow webcam size and position changes during edits

    Allow the webcan inset size and position to be changed through an edit action so it is different in different segments of the recording. For example, I might want to start and finish with the webcam full screen and reduce it in size during other parts of the recording. Depending on the material, I might want the image in a different place during some parts of the recording.

    I can achieve the desired result now by recording each segment with a different webcam size or position separately and then splicing them together (Pro) but it would be easier and more…

  9. convert script file to captions file

    After recording with a script file it could be good to be able to convert it to a captions file.
    This way it wouldn't have to be re-entered when we want to have additional captions

  10. Capture video on the secondary monitor in a dual monitor system.

    For us professional web presenters your product is AWESOME! (Just bought pro today.) Problem is we need the primary monitor NOT visible to the audience so we can toggle between applications and programs when we're presenting. Please, Please, Please move this capability up the development list! Thanks.

    completed  ·  Matthew Lapora responded

    Screencast-O-Matic announced that it just released an intuitive iPhone screen recording app. The mobile screen recorder is in addition to the company’s already multi-device suite of video creation tools.

    The iOS screen recorder is enhanced with features to enable users to record their iPhone screen and audio narration. Educators and students can easily record and utilize features in scenarios including:
    Create video tutorials – Highlight apps or process on a mobile device.
    Showcase student portfolios – Students are able to adjust the speed and rotation of videos they’ve created.
    Create recordings on the go – Publish video updates while outside of the classroom and crop for popular social sites.
    Give meaningful feedback – Connect with students quickly and utilize facecam options for communication.

    Once the app is installed, users can start recording their mobile screen. The user will have the ability to make adjustments to recordings including adjusting speed and…

  13. A better way to read scripts...

    I am needing to overdub recordings. It is cumbersome to do so from a script because you don't allow the window to be sized allowing me to see the entire script for reading. Yes, I know I can scroll. Would be nice if I could get this text out of SOM for reading / sharing with other voice overs etc. Perhaps export script to clipboard?

    Would still love to see a keyboard shortcut for advance to next section for recording scripts, I hate having to remember my mouse position and ensure mac has the "active window" look, as when you…

  19. Ability to import mp4 and .mov files

    How much better it would be to have an option to import other standard video files than just .som files.
    Surely this would not be a difficult task and would add IMMENSE value to Pro users. I'd be happy to pay extra for this feature,..you could at least double the annual fee and I would gleefully pay it ;-)

    I love S-O-M... so simple to use and a great alternative to other options.
