Screencast-o-matic, one of my favorite screencasting tools, has a handy new feature that lets you record a short screencast and turn it into an animated gif instead of a video file.
- Advantages? Easier to post to some web sites that don’t allow posting of video files. No plugins neeeded to view it.
- Disadvantages? No audio. Gif files support fewer colors, so colors might be a bit wonky.
