Create Beautiful Screencasts with Box and Screencast-O-Matic

By

If you’ve ever tried to explain a detailed idea over email or on the phone, you know it can often take you ten times longer than it would if you could easily just show the person on the other end. Box’s new integration with screen recording and audio capture tool Screencast-O-Matic is designed to make that process easier. The integration helps you record audio and video from your desktop, upload them to Box, and easily share the link from your Box account.

The Box integration also ensures that sharing content is safe and secure. I’m able to secure my links to only certain trusted viewers, track their access, and report on what content people are finding most useful.

Screencast-O-Matic is easy to use, available for both PC and Mac, and has no limits on recording length. Our customer success, sales, marketing and product teams at Box all consider it one of their favorite and most-used applications—I use it every day to show off new features to customers!

Here are some other great uses for the Box and Screencast-O-Matic integration:

  • Sharing instructional videos between teachers and students
  • Sales and product demonstrations
  • Virtual training
  • Recording a demo video of your sweet Box Hackathon project

Head over to Screencast-O-Matic to try out the Box integration in your Pro account. If you aren’t yet a Pro member, consider upgrading to enjoy Box connectivity, non-watermarked recordings, unlimited recording time, and video-editing tools.

Once you check out the integration, let us know what you think here or on Twitter at @BoxHQ and @Screencasto!

    My Screen Recorder Pro is an excellent screencasting tool. Records your screen and audio from the speakers or your voice from the microphone – or both simultaneously. The recordings are clear and look great when played back on your PC or uploaded to YouTube. It will record directly to AVI, WMV, MP4, or FLV. Just perfect for creating tutorials, demos, and presentations.
