Imagine being able to send a link to clients containing a narrated tour of a website under construction. Or a simple narrated screen cast explaining the newest Facebook features. The creativity to be unleashed is virtually limitless.
I’ve been playing around with Jing as a screen capture tool and am just blown away by the screencasting / video capabilities. Videos in the free version are limited to 5 minutes in length. That doesn’t seem to be a shortcoming, afterall, there is no editing capability. That makes 5 minutes a rather long time to be narrating.
I used to use Snagit. Video sound was always problematic for me, even after purchasing a USB microphone. The sound in Jing’s video function is quite good.
Here is a piece comparing 27 different screen capture tools.
And a humourous look at what one company is doing with Jing.
