    Hi,

    I really like the screencast videos that you use for describing how to do certain steps, and I could definitely use it a lot within our company. Could you please share with me how you capture those screen recordings (what software do you use)?

    I made a screen recording with QuickTime and uploaded it to Screencast, but the result was a heavy video that takes a long time to load, needs to be clicked on to run, and requires browser plugins to actually play the video.

    So, what do you use?

    Thanks very much!

    Cheers,
    Ines

    There are plenty of applications that can record GIF, but my personal favor is LICEcap(http://www.cockos.com/licecap/) it is free application that works on Windows and Mac OS X. And it is very simple to use, just two buttons Record and Stop :)

    Hope it helps.

    Best regards.
