I just re-installed CamTasia and I remember now why I deleted it a while back. A bit too complicated to just simply record a 4-5 minute video.

CamStudio I used and it did produce about a 200MB file for a 4½ minute video on low quality settings.

Jing, seems to require signup to create an account to store videos online only.


------EDIT------
Meh, Camtasia isn't so bad I suppose.

At Mike's suggestion I tried out Jing. I tried previously a while back with some
other program but didn't do too well. Today I actually recorded streaming
video for the first time with decent audio and visual quality.

I wanted to do so off and on for a while, so this is a
neat little ability.

It takes a long time to upload to the screencast website with Verizon DSL.
The video is only 36 seconds and it took about 25 minutes to
upload.

Video is below, (from YouTube origianally). An eagle tries to teach a goat to fly.

The Jing version I used is the free one. The non-free is supposed to have
better video quality. Anyway anyone interested can see what can be done
with this software.

I know how to embed a YouTube video but not a screencast one. So there's only a link.

For some reason I don't understand it took about 5 minutes to buffer so I could play it.
But it did play.

That video took longer to upload because it is full motion video (you are recording a video of the playback of another video). Jing is designed to record your desktop, meaning windows on your desktop, not video playback. It would be a smaller file and better quality when using it for the intended purpose.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Jing is cool as Mike says but only 5 mins.

I may be wrong but everytime I see an upload using Jing free version the link is broken after a few weeks. It seems that most people load the videos/images on the Jing server rather than uploading them to futures.io (formerly BMT). Jing purges the images after a short time and the result is missing images or videos on the post.

Let me know if that is incorrect.
(I'm sure someone will know better than I)

Ok, I didn't know that.

Also, it takes 5 minutes or so to buffer to play, even after the first time I played
it from screencast's site. The original youtube video buffers in about 15 seconds.
My computer is at least average. Did anyone else have to wait a longish amount
of time for my link to play?

Thanks cory. I might have to check these out.

Does any freeware version stand out in this group, if I should have
to try something besides Jing?

0 delay here. The buffering is not due to the speed of your computer, but the speed (or slowness) of your internet connection and/or poor network route from your ISP to the destination server.

Thanks Mike. I can't remember any video taking 5 minutes to start to play. It's the:

"...poor network route from your ISP to the destination server..."

I assume. This problem is unacceptable. Oh well, seemed great for a moment.

I checked this out:

Video Capture Software. Video, Webcam or Screen Recorder

Name of software I downloaded was:


Debut Video Capture Software

My Kaspersky anti-virus didn't like it, so I deleted it after I downloaded it.
As I/if I understand it, Kaspersky couldn't delete the worm, so it quarantined it.
(That's my guess anyway.)

So much free on-line stuff has a virus or worm or something.

See attachment showing what Kaspersky did and name of worm.
