RecordCast Review -
Film your Computer Screen for Free
When working as freelancers or freelancers, we often need to provide training or show how something works for our clients. We can actually join an online meeting or even face-to-face, but it usually takes a lot of time.
So an interesting solution is to record our screen and/or webcam to pass on this knowledge or procedures. Another challenge usually comes in, which is the technological part, which is exactly where RecordCast shines.
Instead of having to install complex software, configure it, and then find a way to send these videos to our customers, RecordCast brings a simple and integrated solution directly to your browser.
This article will show you a little more about this free tool that helps me take training, information, and evaluations to my clients.
How to record the screen with RecordCast
The RecordCast tool aims to record your screen and/or your webcam with one click.
Step 1. To start recording, all you need to do is click on the “start recording” button on the homepage and choose whether to capture the screen and camera, just the screen or just the camera. It is also available to choose whether to include microphone audio, system audio, or even no audio.
Step 2. RecordCast uses Chrome's screen sharing feature to record. You will need to configure the recording authority in the settings to allow audio and camera access. Finally, select whether you want the entire screen or a specific application (the option appears only when selecting desktop recording).
Step 3. After everything is right, just click on “Share” and the recording interface will appear on the screen, showing you the time when the recording started. To end the recording, you will have to click on the red completion button in the lower right corner of the screen.
Benefits of RecordCast
RecordCast is a free screencasting tool with many benefits:
- It is easy to use and intuitive, and almost no learning curve!
- Can record in HD;
- No watermarks;
- There are three options for recording: just your face, just your screen, or both;
- You can edit your clip, so you don't have to start over if you make a mistake.
What attracts me most to this tool is its simplicity. With a few clicks, we can do things that would take much longer.
In the past, I had to use software such as OBS - which already involved a series of complicated configurations - to go up to YouTube or another video hosting service and only then send it to my clients. I currently use this tool to record entire training on how my clients can use the sites I develop, and I do freelance service evaluations that I hire and even record tutorials for YouTube.
