Beginning February next year (2013), they'll be reverting all Jing Pro subscribers to the free version of Jing.  In the meantime, encouraging new users to try the new version of Snagit which, beginning with version 2, now sports the ability to for video screen captures.

And that's not at all a bad thing.  As I say in the video, Snagit -- although not what I would consider a robust video screen capture software tool -- is definitely a piece of software that should be in your toolkit if you plan on producing screencasts professionally.
