11. Screen Capture

So, it is very hard for my friends and family to figure out how to vote for me in MassChallenge so I figured I should use some screen capture software and make a video for them on how to do this. I got some great advice from last years entrants in MassChallenge (rentabilities.com) and they explained they did the same thing last year and it worked great. They said to use techsmith.com and search for Jing or Camtasia to capture video. Well... I just tried my first attempt and I'm going to post it here and see if it worked. Cross your fingers!

Well that didn't work well. It took up the whole screen. I am using screencast.com to host the video and I can't figure out how to adjust size. I tried saving to my computer and then uploading to YouTube but YouTube would not show the video. (Maybe because it is recorded in Flash?)

Well I can post a link and you can view it that way but I'm going to have to do some more research on how to embed it better.

Update: A little bit later:
OK I figured it out. I went into my HTML code and changed the width and height to match that of the videos I've been putting up through YouTube. Lickidy Bam Presto I got myself some bad ass video capturing going on. Well check that off the learning curve.

Update: Even a little bit later than before!!!
Well now that I know how to do screen capture I created a video on how to vote on MassChallenge and I'm going to share it with my friends and family and hopefully it will be a lot easier for them to vote for me.
