There are a number of good products to make screen capture for both video and still images. The advantage of doing a video screen capture is that you can make a quick and dirty instructional video. Perhaps it is something to explain something to a single customer or something to add to your help files for everyone.
In this case, I am trying out Jing, which is a free service. For a little bit more, you can have the Pro version that may have some additional benefits for simple upload to YouTube and they remove the branding. So, here’s my second attempt to use Jing – it’s also my first attempt. What happened was I recorded a video, but forgot to turn mute off – so the first video did not capture any sound. So, I made a second video where I captured the first video and talked while it played. I would guess that quality improves when you do it right the first time.

Making this video was very easy. Uploading it was also very easy. Whether I’ve been able to make something easy to watch is another question, but certainly Jing is very easy. The limit on video capture is 5 minutes. I suspect if you upgrade to Pro for $14.95 per year that limit may go away.
Oh yes, use Come on Aussie
