Creating online video is not as difficult as it sounds and if you are "green" to creating videos, this walk-through is going to give you some perspective. I am going to be walking you through what a screencast is, the software that is available out there (online and install based), and I am even going to be giving you a look at the software that I use (Screenflow) and how I create screencast videos like this one.

Here are some of the websites that were referenced within this training:

If you have any questions about Screencasts or want to discuss any of the "options" discussed within this video, please leave them below.

Wow, great video! I didn't know how many video software programs there was. I'm happy to see that pricing is still within reach for most people. With this many choices, which software is the easiest to use and that has capability to edit really professional-looking, quality video's? What do you recommend?

Great question! I only recognized one on Kyle's list - Camtasia. It is used by professional educators to create their online captured videos for their students. I do not know about the rest.

Hi Kmers
I would recommend that you do a research of the people who replied to your question of which Software is recommended .. Ali uses quick time plus its Free Hanley uses Noble Samurai easy to use and Haroda uses Camtasia as it is used by professional Educators Contact all who replied with Information after your Own research to confirm your choice.
All the Best

Hi Kyle, thank you for this information and tutorial. I've been trying to learn this concept of video recording but I haven't been good at it. I wonder if you record audio separately then merge it with the video or how exactly do you do it? Do you need to make a script? Is it possible that you do it live as Jay does during the webinars?

Hi Paul,
I see you haven't been answered yet--Here is my two cents worth-
What I do is record the video first-then make a script and then record the audio. Hope this helps.

Apple Mini IPad which one would be a better choice?
I too use an iPad Mini and it is great for many things. It is my preferred tablet because the size is perfect to slip into my day bag and big enough to use comfortably. What tablet is best is a personal choice.

I would not try to develop a website using a tablet.

and is there another video that can make me understand how to make the video?
I use zoom.us to record video presentations. I use Power Point to develop the presentation out line. Then I share my screen as I talk about the key points in my presentation. Jay probably uses another webinar service but the process is pretty much the same.

This one was abit confusing? Is it just recording?
Type "video Presentation" in the search bar at the top of the page and you will find plenty of training.

How do I edit to have a finished product?
Video editing is a subject in itself. I have used Final Cut Pro, iMovie which comes free with Apple products, Adobe Premier and have settled on using Camtasia. You are not going to be able to do much video editing on a tablet, but their are apps available that will let you at titles and even lower thirds.

Got a few videos my desk made to upload to youtube. Will the videos, if unlisted on youtube, still rank in Google for keywords, if I used closed captions on my vids?
Reply

I am not 100% sure on this, but I would think that google would recognize the videos by your keywords.

Reply
DeRaj Premium
It depends how and where you use the captions. If you are loading video on your website and giving captions and tags there for your video, sure that will also rank. But, since YouTube is owned by Google, so you will get quick ranking for your video if you use YouTube platform.
But if your video is taken out from YouTube, then that means that is completely gone and will not have ranking anywhere.

Great tutorial Kyle!!. I've just checked out Screencast-o-matic. It looks great. Now to create the video!!
Reply
MirandaGordo Premium
OMG! Ok...Breath...

So, I have chosen the Screencast-o-matic, and think that I might go pro, it's super cheap so why not.

I have a YouTube channel, and have created a few videos, but they are videos that I have gotten through the cc option, where others allow you to use their videos as your own.

So, what that means is...I am going to be making my very own video for the first time today! I am a little nervous...I lied...I'm a LOT nervous!

To top it off, I have a dentist apt to get ready for in 2 hours, so I get to go live through that joy, and come and make my very first video.

We all have to start somewhere, right? lol

I know it will lead to some AMAZING things. The ones I created have WAY more views on my social media posts than those where I did not share a video, so I am 100% confident this is going to lead to more traffic!

Hello Brook, I am new to all video.
Is screenomatic easy to use?
Is the audio automatic when making the video?
How to upload to site? Do we need a plugin?

Any other tidbits that would help.

I have really struggled with learning video. Thanks Mary
Reply
brooksqueen Premium
Thank you Mary, the audio is automatic, but you have option to chose which audio device to use in case you are using an external speaker.

Is advice you have it downloaded on your machine. Is screen omatic

After the video, with the premium you can edit it but the free version you have limited editing options.

You publish to you tube
Then embed the vide on your website.
I hope this helps.
Any issues just ping me

mary5600 Premium
Thank you ! Thank You! Brook!
I will get the paid version. I cant believe how inexpensive it is. Also, editing will be very important.

SO, once it is on my computer, how do I get it on my site?
Do we need a plugin? Or does it just upload like a photo?

Also, what is "ping" me?
Thanks again! I cant tell you how much this helps. I tried cam studio, and that was a bust!

Hi everyone. I downloaded the Screencast- o -Matic. But when I want to record my screen, not fully capture it.
In the preferences settings, I selected the full screen, but it seems not working. Because it looks as if the screen resolution becomes lower so the record only could take a corner of the screen.
I look again into the program settings, but does not appear the ones to solve it.
I don´t know if it´s the free version of the program and I need to upgrade, or it´s just me I can not find the settings? Many thanks...

I have been trying to record a video using Screencast-O-Matic and Jing without success. For some reason, I can't record the voice. How could I make them record it?

I have tried to use my laptop's mic and the external mic with Scarlett Focusrite 2i4 soundcard. But those programs just don't record the voice? Microphones are working 100% well with the other programs and I have checked that all the settings should be okay. I have been searching for an answer from the Internet over 2 hours without finding the answer.

I would be ultimately happy if I could start making videos with the voice. Do you have some tips how to get the programs work? They just haven't heard my microphones.

Screencast-O-Matic looks brilliant. The scripting facilities allow professional videos to be created from your screen in sections so you can avoid the mumbling and umming and erring. That might help, especially if you can't remember what you're doing in the middle of the video. Thanks for this, Kyle.

I will come back to this later. Screenr is no longer working; this is the message I get from the website:

Screenr was retired on November 12, 2015.
As you might already know, Screenr’s recording capability was based on Java RE (Runtime Environment), which rapidly became antiquated. For example, Google Chrome doesn’t support Java RE anymore. So Screenr couldn’t run there. And on other browsers, Java support is also limited, causing constant problems for users.

Because we at Screenr pride ourselves on providing a superior customer experience, these issues were simply unacceptable. And there was no way around them.

If you’d like to download your videos, please visit our download page at your earliest convenience. Simply search for your username and select the videos you wish to download. Please note, all of your embedded videos and links to your videos continue to work.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our services as much as we’ve enjoyed providing them to you.

What a great lesson. I'm due for a new Laptop and will wait to incorporate videos. I will review Lesson 9 as soon as I'm up and running anew. Meanwhile -- I have started my Art website, my 2nd WA website, and I'd love to get some feedback if anyone has a few minutes to spare here: http://NewRealismArt.com BTW... videos will greatly enhance this art website I believe. Thanks in advance guys and gals.

I have a Google chrome book. Is there a screencast system that is compatible with Google chrome.

Well. I bought Screenflow and it is a great tool. BUT. If you want to get in contact with the company you have to pay for the support for a year??? I also tried to upload my videos to Youtube but Youtube wouldnt accept the type of files you create with Screenflow. The files are called SCC. I dont get it. There is a build in feature for uploading dirrectly to youtube but youtube wont accept it. Strange. The first time I tried to upload a video to youtube - screenflow asked me what channel or account to put it. Since that first time it never asked me again and i cant find the settings for that. So now i can only upload to that specific account without ever having the chance to put videos to other of my channels. Im not happy!

Hey Morton! I use the Mac equivalent of Screenflow called Camtasia to do all my screen captures. As far as I know they are from the same company? I might be wrong though and have my information crossed... Never the less.

Is the not an option to change the default rendering format in the setting to .mp4?

Personally when I capture my screen and create a video I export the video as a .mp4 to my hard drive and then upload it to YouTube. I prefer the control and plus if YouTube decide to remove my video I still have a hard copy backed up.

I have no experience with Screenflow though so it could be very different. There should however be an option to export your video as a .mp4 to your hard drive. That is a standard feature these days.

Hope that helps ?

looks like I am mistaken... Different company, different software and is for MAC as well... Should still be an option to export as .mp4 in there somewhere.

Hey Hammer,

Thanks for responding. It is possible to save the video to my harddrive but still the file is in a SCC format which Youtube dont accept. I have checked the tutorial videos but i cant crack the code. I spent 4 hours today. There must be a solution since Kyle recommend it though.

That is very strange!

Only other suggest I have is to download a program called Media Streamclip, it is also free and it is used to convert video from one format to another. Will have play around and do some research to see if it can convert SCC files.

A great video about the video. I always wondered how this was done. And thought it would be really complicated. It's so simple after watching this video. And of course the teaching is AWESOME as always.

Kyle, How do we integrate the recording from screen flow into you tube.....
Reply
Kyle Premium
You will need to export it as a .wav file and then upload that file into YouTube. There is also a function right within Screenflow to export to Vimeo and Youtube but I have found that feature to be a little buggy.

I've got a pc so I have been looking into getting screecast-o-matic. The pro version is only $15.

Yeah, not a bad investment for having the ability to produce screencasts on demand.

I note that you have a still shot of the beginning of a screen cast and have that on the page where you have the textual lesson and the video on its own page such as this one. Just curious if I should follow suit on my campaigns. I ask this silly question because you usually have very good reason why you do anything.

Do you keep the text lesson pretty much in the same order and wording as you do in the video? Just wondering if you use a software to provide the text from the recording (as in Dragon) for speed and ease in producing these lessons.
Reply
Kyle Premium
I do this manually Daniel. The videos are done in a way that makes the most sense to the audience and my text lessons often times fill in a lot of the blanks. There is nothing to really copy here in that respect, do what makes the most sense with your audience. That is my suggestion.

Excellent, you don't have to make it your main part of your content, but if you make it part of your content development, it will allow you to diversify your skillset (a good thing).

Kyle, thank you. You have given me the means to create a podcast (and the Mac resource I need) for my 'powerpoints on demand' called pods on my website. Want to keep things simple, easy and fast for everyone 'on the go' who want to build, as we do here, a learning program that will spear them into a field of study with specific goals. I believe I can beat the competition (at least I can dream I can). Seems like I have been working forever on keywords and media to add and link once a few foundation pods are done. Been meaning to ask for one on one help, is that possible?

Yeah, one on one help is available to you whenever you need it, just ask. I am here to help, so please do let me know if you have any questions going forward. You ARE the competition if you view yourself this way and you will become the competition. You have all the skills you need to put yourself into this position.

Thank you, Kyle, I will very soon. Has been a tense two days with having to send kids home to their families on Monday, as did I, and I just got back home.
Many of us here in OK saw up close what everyone owned destroyed by a tornado. Those of us who were to close for comfort, are so thankful, and gave everything we could to help the families in OKC and Moore on Tuesday. There is so much more help these families will need as we all move forward.
As soon as this week is done, will take a deep sigh and ask your direction.

What Microphone would you use (instead of the inbuilt mic) so that the voice appears crystal clear, and does not have too much noise from the background ?
Reply
bwh1 Premium
You should get a USB plug mic for your PC, and for external recording you better use a voice recorder together with the video recording, also because some of the recordings could be a bit far away and your voice wouldn't be on record.
That gives you 2 recordings for Outdoor videos which have to be synced after in a software like VideoPad or Camtasia where you can adjust the audio and video files.

Although sometimes I just use the onboard Mic for my videos (if I am transient), you can absolutely get a good USB for fairly cheap through amazon or your local electronics store. Lots of options and lots of reviews out there.

What camera do you for making videos (everyone).
Please advise.

Hi Trace
I use my Laptop camera and the one at my Tablet for outdoor recs.
You can get some great quality with fairly cheap recorders, I just don't have those cheap ones available in Brazil.

Hi Kyle. great tutorial.

Screencast-O-Matic all the way as you won't find anything better with editing functionalities for a bit over 1 dollar per month.

I got Screencast-O-Matic too, paid $15 for a whole year and it's brilliant, high quality and lots of editing like you said. Can't go wrong, newbie safe.

I don't recommend that newbies try the "free download" ones as they come with "other things" that can cause problems on your computer and can also be hard to get rid of. Robbie :)
