In 5 (plus 5 more!) Tools For Creating a Screencast I listed 10 screen capture software programs you can use for video screen captures and online presentations. But one thing we didn't do in that article was compare them against each other. Let's fix that, shall we?
With this article, I'm kicking off a series that I've wanted to do for a while. It answers a question I get a lot: what's the best screen capture software to use? (The other one I get is, what's the best free screen capture software? I don't know that we'll necessarily set out to answer this latter one, but I will be reviewing a couple of freebies--or near freebies.)
So, over a 7-part series (beginning with this one), I'll go on to compare 6 popular screen capture software programs. In the video above, I list the criteria we'll be using as benchmarks for the comparison.
Let me know if there are other criteria or features you think are worth comparing.
