Webapps: Make screencasts online with Screencast-O-Matic


Web app Screencast-O-Matic lets you quickly create and host video screencasts (with audio) in a jiffy.

All you need to do is head to the web site, click on Create, choose your capture size, audio preferences, and then hit Go! Screencast-O-Matic runs a Java applet that handles the screen captures, and though it could use a little work smoothing things out around the edges, it's really easy to use (check out my done-in-a-minute demo here). We've covered free screencasting apps before (like Wink and CamStudio), but Screencast-O-Matic shows a lot of promise, would be great for quickly creating and sending simple instructions to your less computer-literate friends or family, and since it runs through a Java web applet, it works on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers.
