Thanks mostly to its well-designed user interface, making screencasts with FreeScreencast can be a real pleasure. Just select an area of the screen which will be your ‘filming space’, then press record and that's it.

The program needs both Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and Windows Media Encoder in order to run. The latter you might have to install, see below for the download link.

Its simplicity shows also some downsides. When you select a square region of your screen to record, the program deforms it when showing the final video, as that frame will be rectangular. Also, the program doesn’t include even basic editing tools, for example to cut or move some parts of your video. It would also be good to be able to add visual effects such as transitions once you’ve completed your screencast.

If you need to explain clearly how to do something on a computer and you believe that images explain ideas better than words, then this program is for you.

Screencasting is a very simple concept: record your computer screen and sounds while talking about your actions. Screencasts are powerful content and the benefits are immediate. No tech degree required and your productivity increases significantly.

You benefit: no more taking loads of screenshots, tweaking things in photoshop and writing loads of text trying to describe the nuances of your actions. Screencasts are produced in a fraction of the time. Publishing your screencast with FreeScreencast.com is one click away: no HTML, no coding, no hosting, no cost. One click, your screencast is on the internet.

Your audience benefits from a powerful, simple, and easy to understand presentation. The screencast is your screen, your cursor, your sounds, and your narrative.
