Has all of the essential screen capture/editing features but super easy to use

Pros

Screen-Cast-O-Matic is the easiest screen capture software I've used, and in 20 years as a corporate trainer I've used a lot of them. Capturing the screen is very similar to other software of this type. It's the editing features that make the big difference. I'm able to easily cut, blur, highlight, zoom in, etc. in just seconds. No other screen capture software that I've used is this easy. I also like the video picture in picture feature.

Cons

The only issue I've had with this software is when I got a new computer with a high resolution monitor. The software isn't made to work at high resolution and the interface is very tiny. I have to record, and then relaunch allowing the system to adjust the scaling in order to the editing. I did report this to the company but it doesn't seem to have been fixed yet.

Reasons for Choosing Screencast-O-Matic

It had more video editing features.

Reasons for Switching to Screencast-O-Matic

I switched because the price was so much cheaper, but I love the functionality so much better.

Video editing tool for multiple

Pros

The best thing which we liked about this product is that we can work as an organization instead of an individual and we can share our content with our peers and make it password protected.

Cons

needs more improvement towards adding more content in its library for font types, background, interface, audio, and transitions from one slide to another.

Reasons for Switching to Screencast-O-Matic

It was licensed for 1 user and it did not have any security or content sharing features.

My go to screen recording software

I'm quite satisfied with the software and it does the job of screen recording very well.

Pros

The intuitive and minimal interface is very good for creating good quality screen recordings with it. It also offers royalty free music and stock images and videos to juice up your productions.

Cons

The editing capabilities are limited. A multi track or multilayer editor will be much helpful.

Reasons for Choosing Screencast-O-Matic

Due to lower cost.

A decent enough web recorder that has been surpassed.

I enjoyed it while I used it, but have since moved to using Loom instead.

Pros

It works - it records videos, gives you the ability to upload them and has basic editing options. For most people it will cover what they need.

Cons

It's clunky, it's slow - and needing to open the desktop client each time to use is a hassle. They need to invest in making it more seamless.
