very clear images, voice was easy to understand, apparently well pre-planned, obviously the author must have listened to the finished video before uploading

This was the 3rd video I watched by the author. All 3 are exceptionally well done.

when i record and play all i can see is a black screen

Hi Anon - I've replied to you by private email. As I mentioned I stopped using HyperCam over a year back, but the author was responsive so he could help.

Better yet - switch to CamStudio - it is the tool that most of our Authors used on Windows, it Just Works as you'd expect it!

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Ian
