I don't know where the preferences came from? Other than that very good for me. Thanks Lisa

Can't resist (here's the first thing that popped to mind):

"I think it's directly after the purchase page on the website :-)".

Do you work closely with Ian Ozsvald?

Where's the contact form to get a license for making videos for the site with iShowU??

Please make more on this subject. :) Good job anyway.

thanks for telling us about ishowu!

Hey Neil, I've just listened to Don McAllister talking about his ScreencastsOnline ( to Robert Scoble:

back in Dec 2006.

It was nice to hear him big-up iShowU - I know that that was a year ago but it is still kinda cool to hear you get the public kudos :-)

great now it´s testingtime

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the video and your work on a *great* product(iShowU).



Hi Neil, thanks for this video, it is great to know that Mac users can see how easy it is to share their knowledge via a ShowMeDo video.

We are fine with any of the audio settings and Medium (shown in the video) works great for us.

Re. scaling the video - we shrink the videos down from 800x600 to 640x480 so that they play for all of our users. If you recorded at a much higher resolution (e.g. 1280x1024) and it looked ok when played back on your machine at 800x600, note that it will be even smaller when played in ShowMeDo and possibly the text will be too small to read! I'd stick to 800x600 or possibly 1024x768 (if you don't mind small text).



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.
