Sharing screencasts are the in-thing now. Screencats make sharing information visually that much more powerful. It can come in handy for many situations.And this is especially true for bloggers doing short video or tutorial.
ScreenToaster is an online screen recording tool that doesn’t need anything installed in your computer. Yes, that’s the beauty of it. It just works in your browser.
- Record part of your screen of in full
- Add subtittles
- Host and share videos online
- Embed videos in your websites
- Start and stop recording with keyboard shortcuts
You just need to register for a free account with ScreenToaster and you are good to go. It is in private beta at the moment and you need an invite code to sign up.
Here’s a short video sample recorded with ScreenToaster but I don’t attest to the claim in the video to make your computer faster.
What’s to come
ScreenToaster will fit only very basic screencasting needs and it doesn’t compare with the full-featured screencasting software like Camtasia, etc.
ScreenToatser is missing audio recording so you can’t narrate as you record a screenshot. You could do a voice ver after you record the video but that’d need some practice. Also, the videos are now only hosted in ScreenToatsre and no download options are available. But, the developers say they are working on those missing features for future release.
ScreenToaster is a no-frills zero-download screen recording tool that works everytime. If you are on the road and need to record something without your favorite tools, ScreenToaster could come to your rescue.
It worked great in Windows but had some issues running in Linux and warns about those if you have graphic effects turned on.
There are plenty of other options out there. Which is your favorite?
ScreenToaster just opened for public and gets the much needed recording audio option. Check it out.
