The Question I’m Asked the Most
Last fall I developed a chart and wrote an in-depth comparison of complimentary screencasting tools. In my ranking of free alternatives, Screencastify came out on top. That chart and ranking can be seen here.
I get great deals of concerns sent to me each week. There is one that I get asked more regularly than any other. That is, “what are you using to make your videos.” Typically, people ask that due to the fact that they wish to know how Im highlighting my mouse guideline in my videos or how Im creating the moving oval cut-out of my webcam.

Last year March I published a complete video summary of Screencast-o-matic. You can see that video.
A Comparison of Other Screencasting Tools.
Screencast-o-matic is the tool that I use to develop nearly all of the videos that appear on my YouTube channel. Screencast-o-matic is offered in a browser-based version and in a desktop “deluxe” variation. I utilize the desktop variation unless Im utilizing my Chromebook..
The deluxe version of Screencast-o-matic is the paid version that costs $1.65/ month. With that version comes the option to crop and resize the web cam view that you can overlay on your screencast. One of those cropping alternatives is to utilize an oval. Thats what I do. Screencast-o-matic also supplies the option to have a highlighted circle follow your mouse pointer on your screen. When Im making longer videos Ill likewise use the clip combining tools, transition tools, and text overlay tools that are available in Screencast-o-matic.
If you see it somewhere else, it has been utilized without approval.
