Just click record. Screenr's web-based screen recorder makes it a breeze to create and share screencasts around the web.
Screencasting on a Chrome OS/Chromium? Now there is an App for that!
Screencasts have definitely evolved over the years and have many uses for people. I use them all the time on my blog (http://kayolhope.me) for video tutorials as well as to show others how to use different software. One thing that I have always found is that good screencasting software can be very expensive. Even though I own a Mac and I can record with Screenflow, I could not find any suitable alternative for my Chromebook.
So I set out on my quest to find a good screencasting app that wasn’t going to hurt my wallet and at the same time offer some great features. I think I may have found what I have been looking for in Screenr, a web app that records your screen and so much more!
Step 1: Getting Started - choose to log in using a wide variety of social network logins ie. Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. No Profile required!
Step 2: Recording - When you hit the “Record” button, Screenr will search to see if you have Java installed on your computer. If you don’t, then you will have to install it first in order to use the app.
When you are ready to go, a window screen is displayed on your monitor. You can resize it to your desired area or size by either dragging the edges or using the set screen option sizes that are given to you. Once this is done, if you are going to be capturing your voice as well, make sure that your microphone works by testing it out. Then you are all set to go and you can start recording your screencast. On the free version, you have 5 minutes to record.
Step 3: Preview - Once you are finished recording, just click the “Done” button and you can now preview your screencast.
Step 4: Publishing - Screenr knows that your screencasts are meant to share with others, so they make sure to give you some tools to help you out with this. You have the option to publish your video to YouTube, tweet it, as well as share out a short URL for it. Screencasts can also be embedded into websites as well as downloaded to your computer.
* Requires an additional extension to render Java for use with Chromebooks and/or Chromium Linux Distro Builds.
We suggest "Rndr" found on the Chrome Web Store:
* Note: I have no affiliation with Screenr nor did I develop Screenr, I simply created n Chrome App or Web Bookmark if you wish to both fill a shortcut need on my Chromebook and provide a complete web-based screencasting solution to the lack of official screencasting apps in the Chrome Web Store.
