Trying to create a screencast, sigh!

September 23, 2006 at 10:58 am Leave a comment

Last year I attended a wonderful Internet Librarian Preconference workshop on Creating Screencasts in 30 minutes.  Greg Notess was great, truly, and I thought I remembered enough to actually do it, eleven months later.  It has been a challenge, trust me.  I purchased Camtasia, which is a slick product that has lots of bells and whistles.  After several attempts, I finally completed a decent tutorial on troubleshooting remote database problems, aimed at our patrons.  After doing the screencast itself, I turned it into a Flash product, using the Camtasia software wizard.  It played back quite well as long as it was on my local drive.  Once I mounted it on the web, my Flash problems appeared.  It looks like I created the video using one version of Flash and my computer keeps asking for another version.  Even after downloading the most current version, I still get the same message.  And so it goes….. I’ll wait a few hours and try again!
