Screencasts (tutorials)

Hi,

After trying various screencast programs I finally found one which I’m
happy with. It’s called wink and can be found here:

http://www.debugmode.com/wink/

The prgram can be downloaded for windows and linux.

examples: (requires flash)
http://home.scarlet.be/timvdm/navigate.htm
http://home.scarlet.be/timvdm/drawing.htm

While it takes some time (not alot with this program) to add the text
after capturing your screencast, I find it much easier to explain
things this way and the user can continue when he wants. Making
screencast with xvidcap wasn’t working here, and when you make
mistakes in the middle of the video, I had to edit it anyway…

Thanks a lot of that. Those screencasts are very nice. The Ubuntu
Screencasts team made a couple wiki pages on doing a screencast that
people might also find helpful:
