Free Screencasting Software – Wednesday only

Wish I’d noticed this earlier today (Wednesday) but there’s still time to get this screencasting software for free through Giveaway of the Day.

Wondershare DemoCreator is a screen recording software package similar to Wink. I haven’t tested it out thoroughly, but after a brief test I can say I’m impressed. Glad to have a chance to get it for free, though this is one I might pay to upgrade.

In any case grab it while you can!

Installing it took a few tries. Here’s what worked for me:

— run activate.exe
— run setup.exe
— run activate.exe again

And on my Vista computer I had to run setup.exe again to get rid of the “demo only” banner that appeared in my screencast.

It was fairly intuitive to use, I created a short demo video of my browser window in about 5 minutes.  Looks like it has lots of basic features. I don’t imagine it has everything that Camtasia and Captivate have, but this may be enough for many purposes.
