Hey @Diematiah after you post your video to YouTube you can then add music. Go to your video, Then click the 'audio' button just below the video window. You can swap the audio.
Sometimes YouTube makes you update your video to another video so your URL changes. For this reason, when you plan to swap audio, upload your original video as 'private' and plan to make your revised audio video as 'public'.
Another option is to use their editor. Go to youtube.com/editor
Even more than just adding background music to a video are the editing tools. Recording your screen is nice. Being able to edit it afterwards makes all the difference.
Editing is done *after* a recording is made. Draw on the screen, zoom & pan. Trim out dead/dull content. And yes, add music.
The licence is $15 for one year and so worth it: http://screencast-o-matic.com/gopro
YouTube has an audio library. Search by genre, mood and duration.
Some music requires attribution (credit) and others do not. YouTube provides the attribution text.
Download the music to your computer then add to your SOM recording.
@khadiza Adding music is slightly different depending if your using SOM v1 or v2. However, the process is similar. While in 'editing mode', look for audio controls. You must be in editing mode.
With v2 music is often too loud so I lower the volume of the background considerably.
@Lindzey -- You can add any music but there are copyright issues. If only using this for personal use then you can pretty much do whatever you like. If posting to YouTube or another online property then you need to get permission first.
Sharing a recording among multiple recordings is doable. I use SOM on my work computer and laptop.
Create a folder in Google Docs, or other cloud service, drag the SOM 'recordings' folder into it. Then in SOM, change the record-to folder (upper left) to that new cloud folder.
On your second computer do the same. This way all recordings are stored in one location and available to multiple computers.
On occasion, I do get a Google Drive error dialog is triggered by SOM. Dialog says Google Drive must restart. Screenshot: https://goo.gl/zD3MqM
Sync time depends on your total recordings. My current 265 recordings consume 75.4GB. Sync has to go both up and down to all machines. Let it run overnight if you've got a lot.
In 'Recorder Preferences' check out the option to show/hide the webcam while recording. Not a hotkey but you can change webcam visibility when editing.
Try using the 'Webcam Bog Hotkey' in Recorder Preferences
Seems you're looking for a title screen. A workaround is to create a Word document with your desired title. Record a few seconds of that screen, pause, then do your recording.
When editing, zoom in on the title portion of your recording to avoid capturing the Word application borders - makes for a neater end product. Recoding with Word in full-screen mode is another option.
The blur can follow the screen position. Set your blur, then add an animation action. Keeping a smooth screen scroll rate will make this easier.
You'll set a start/stop position and the time interval between those positions. If the timing does not match up quite right, go to the next higher time interval and set the end point off screen.
I think this logo upload feature only works with Premium accounts (not Free or Pro). There may be a workaround but this must be done with each video.
After all edits are done, add a picture overlay of your logo/branding icon. Using a file format that supports transparencies like png. This works for odd shape imgs and allows a translucent watermark if desired.
