which of the four zip files should I download. I ask because the one you recommended on the video didn't compress my files, and neither does the 2010 64 bit version either.

Also, what type of microphone do I need to add voice/audio to my recordings?

Finally, is there a way for me to show the entire screen, instead of just the area within the squared-off green boundaries?

excellent--clear, complete, easy to understand. This is the 4th video I've watched. All 4 were top quality. Thank you for a job well done.

In the third part of your cam-studio tutorials I thought you were going to at least give a 1 minute (How-To) video on how to make a screen cast video,but, I guess not.

Very good information on using the tools - one day I may be able to contribute something of value. I do like what I see here on the website for content.

First rate results following your instructions. Have recorded my first screencast and am pleased with the result.

Keep up the good work.

Ian - The bit about using a Submit button on the left side of the ShowMeDo home page is obsolete. Also, I'm struck again with the notion that it would be handy to have a kind of cheat sheet of plain text to go along with videos that would make it possible to cut and paste URLs. Would including them in the video description be a work around???

When I open my avi files recorded in CamStudio, the screen has a green or amber tint. I cannot seem to resolve this issue. It will also start out flickering and changing colors, but after a few seconds it settles down and the video can be seen, but always with this overlay color. I'm on Vista 64 bit PC. Any help solving this issue would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

A section on how you compres and publish a video on a web page would be useful (I know you do this for showmedo but I need also to put the video on my website).

Review of Editing and Submitting

this was very informative, answered a lot of questions. I am looking for more info on the audio option of using the speakers and not the microphone. Do you have anything on that? I want to record short inspirational movie clips. When I record with microphone it picks up background noise. When I have it set to speakers, it is extremely low and sounds terrible. Thanks.

Review of Editing and Submitting

The explanation for the setup of camstudio is the most informative, I appreciate this very much

Thanks for your help--I have been needing a solution to teach my students how to navigate some of the functions of various software program that they must be able to use... with your help, I think I might be a successful! :)

(College students learning how to navigate the our uni's unique web systems and perhaps the American Financial Aid process...

Simply a God-send. :) (If you believe in that..)

<grin> THANK YOU

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
