Screen recording tools are often cluttery, limited in functionality and a nightmare to set-up. With several plugins to install and software to download, recording a quick ten minute tutorial can take up several hours and seem no less than rocket science. And even though the potential is endless, most product managers fret at the very thought of dealing with the hassles of screen-recording. However, the good news is that there are some emerging alternatives that aim to put a fresh spin on this rather interesting aspect of the digital experience and make screen recording a piece of cake!
Available for Google Chrome, Openvid is one such game changing extension for seamless Screen, Microphone and Camera Recording. The stand-alone, easy to install extension not only declutters the whole process of screen-recording but also adds a ton of functionality to it. Unlike conventional screen-recording solutions, Openvid allows users to record audios well as front-facing camera video; whilst simultaneously recording the screen. It also gives its users the flexibility to record and store unlimited video. It then instantly produces a URL for sharing or downloading the video in HD. This opens door to a horizon of new possibilities and makes Openvid a one-stop solution for all screen-recording needs.
Where everything so far seems really lucrative, there comes the question that who exactly is Openvid really for? The answer is everyone. And by everyone, we literally mean everyone! For instance, Picture yourself on call with your grandma; trying to teach her how to set-up a Facebook account. Wouldn’t it be a whole lot easier to just send her an interactive video tutorial of the whole process, instead of repeatedly explaining her the difference between sign-up and sign-in?
One extension to rule them all
