Screen Castle, save screen online

There are not many options like this, that allow you to save on video what you do with the monitor but that the application works online. Until now Camtasia had been an irreplaceable option, although There's others But with the limitation of saving the video locally.

It looks very handy for video tutorials and purposes of giving online assistance, save the video, communicate the link or just place the html code instead of explaining:

You click the button ... then you go and touch yourself ...

screen cast The web is called Screen CastleIt is a development on Java, so it should run on any operating system. And although there is a Java virtual machine installed, the execution is online with a simple click of the orange button.


Allows you to configure the screen size to be captured, in case you want to limit yourself to a maximum width allowed in a blog, such as 450 × 300 pixels.

It also allows you to preview or drag the screen manually and as an addition, you can also save audio. Once ready, press the button to open the recorder.


After the capture has started, there is a button to pause the recording, and you can also drag the window to another area of ​​the screen.

Going up

In the paused or finished recording state, an icon to upload the video is available, which is stored on the ScreenCastle website. When finishing uploading, enough options appear for me to have dared to recommend this website:

  • Watch the video directly
  • See the html code, how to embed it in a web
  • Go to direct file to download
  • BB code to post it in a forum
  • etc ...

Act quickly. Take a look, I think the service is worth it and for those who want more, there is also an API and the possibility of mounting it on a wiki ... it would not hurt to follow them through Twitter.

For now there is no file limit, and apparently the videos are not deleted although in the FAQ it is explained that possibly over time could be erased and a limit could be set to the size of the video.
