"Genial herramienta de grabación en directo"

What do you like best?

Se usa con Chrome y no necesitas instalar programas pesados en tu ordenador, lo cual es maravilloso para ordenadores sin muchos recursos o que no quieren instalar demasiados programas, en este caso recibirás un producto online, que aloja directamente en drive las grabaciones, y en las que podrás anotar cosas en directo, señalar zonas, escribir, borrarlo, ... Es sin lugar a dudas una gran herramienta para las grabaciones en directo, cuenta con un plan gratuito (que da para la enorme mayoría de situaciones) y un plan de pago, que es medianamente barato, vaya, que no es para nada caro, eso sí, ofrece ya muchas más funciones y te quita la marca de agua (que ha aparecido hace unos días tras una actualización).

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me gusta es las herramientas de pincel, lápiz o rotulador, porque son muy pixeladas y genera una muy mala sensación de cara a pasarle algo grabado con anotaciones a otra persona.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Deberían de mejorar lo del pixelado en las herramientas, por el resto, está muy bien.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Para la atención al usuario, enseñarle cómo hacer cosas es muy útil, por lo tanto optamos por ello para realizar mini tutoriales en directo para que el usuario pueda repetirlo paso a paso sin tener que estar con él en el proceso.

"buena herramienta"

What do you like best?

lo que más me ha gustado es que es una herramienta gratuita pero muy potente, permite grabar fácilmente lo que se hace en el navegador mientras se habla por el micro, ideal para hacer tutoriales en video o reviews de noticias. Además, puedes guardar todos los videos automáticamente en google drive.

What do you dislike?

lo que menos me ha gustado es que es un rollo tener que registrarte con la cuenta de google, preferiría que esa parte no fuera obligatoria. Por lo demás, poco se le puede sacar malo a esta extensión, es gratuita y ofrece todo lo que se le puede pedir.

Recommendations to others considering the product

RECOMIENDO ENCARECIDAMENTE EL USO DE SCREENCASTIFY PARA HACER VIDEOS EN LOS QUE VAYAS A ENSEÑAR ALGO QUE HACES CON EL NAVEGADOR. Es una extensión gratuita a la vez que completa. Sencillo y rápido de utilizar, esta herramienta no te drafraudará. A todos los que hacemos contenido en linea nos ha gustado.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo he utilizado para grabarme enseñando noticias y comentandolas, material que nos era muy necesario en nuestra plataforma. Pensamos en usar OBS, pero era un rollo. Screencastify es mucho más sencillo y rápido de utilizar

What Screen and Video Capture solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Buena herramienta para hacer pequeñas grabaciones"

What do you like best?

Como digo en el título, es una buena herramienta para hacer pequeñas grabaciones, es decir, de poca duración, porque te permite no solo grabar de manera sencilla y alojarlo directamente en tu nube (por ejemplo Google Drive), sino que además te permite anotar, dibujar y escribir durante el vídeo mientras grabas, lo cual es muy útil para resaltar o señalar zonas, textos o lo que necesites destacar sobre el resto, es realmente una muy buena aplicación, que no tienes necesidad de instalar en tu ordenador, ya que se instala como complemento en tu navegador de google chrome.

What do you dislike?

Lo peor es sin duda la precisión del pincel cuando vas a señalar, anotar o dibujar algo mientras grabas, es preciso pero irregular, es decir, cuando mueves el pincel sale muy muy pixelado, es algo que deberían arreglar, puesto que queda feísimo señalar o dibujar algo con esa herramienta.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si quieres algo solo para hacer fotos y así no tener que enviar siempre vídeos, úsalo en combinación con Lightshot, es muy parecido. Así podrás escoger enviar fotos y cuando lo requiera usas Screencastify, para grabar un vídeo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Todos hemos querido enseñar a nuestro compañero de trabajo o a algún amigo en casa algo en un vídeo de manera sencilla, con esta herramienta sin duda podrás hacerlo.

"Muy interactiva"

What do you like best?

A pesar de que tiene sus limitaciones, Screencastify graba tu pantalla, aunque yo lo uso para Chrome solamente, es decir, para sus pestañas, con bastante sencillez, es muy eficiente, no consume apenas recursos así que el ordenador no nota que está grabando, además puedes ir anotando cosas mientras, lo cual puede ser muy útil cuando el vídeo es explicativo, por ejemplo, enseñando algo a alguien

What do you dislike?

Si bien las herramientas están correctamente escogidas, creo que la calidad de las mismas no es la adecuada, los pinceles se ven muy pixelados, lo cual empeora la calidad del servicio

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si podéis utilizar una tableta gráfica para las anotaciones mucho mejor, puesto que como he puesto en los contras el pincel cuando vas a señalar algo se pixela mucho por muy buen pulso que tengas, por lo tanto pierde mucho en la parte visual ver una línea tan fea en vez de una línea medianamente recta, aunque tenga alguna curva por el pulso, con un simple algoritmo bastaría para solucionar ese problema visual, esperemos que lo resuelvan lo antes posible para mejorarla aún más, ya que la competencia lo tiene

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Si bien existen otras alternativas, descubrir que este producto tenía anotaciones en vivo en unas grabaciones (que además pesan muy poco en cuanto a tamaño del archivo) ha sido una gran sorpresa, y por lo tanto se reafirma como principal opción en su sector

"Excellent tool - especially for Chrome users"

What do you like best?

I initially found Screencastify out of necessity when needing a screen-capture recording tool that I could use on my Chromebook. Chromebook users cannot install local software and Screencastify was perfect because I could install the extension on my browser and easily record my screen & or my embedded webcam for instructional videos.

What do you dislike?

I wish the stop recording button was accessible via stop button toward the bottom screen when hovered over vs. having to go to the top and click. It would be a time saver and I wouldn't have to edit out that time. Also I would like to have a better editor with more functionality. I usually export and do my trimming because the editor doesn't show a time bar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Forget costly licenses to Camtasia - this is a portable tool that is very budget friendly and easy to use. I recommend this to anyone needing to do a simple screen sharing capture. It will export to MP4 and host your videos in the cloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is an extremely easy tool that is very budget friendly.

"Great Product -- Free and Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

As a G-Suite and Chrome browser user, it took me about a minute to setup and start recording. The product is FREE (with limitations) but I am considering to upgrade since the product is a lot cheaper than competing products. The user interface is very intuitive and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The FREE version is limited to recording only 10-mins and has the Screencastify watermark displayed. It would be nice if I could directly upload my videos to YouTube and if I could highlight the mouse pointer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a free screen recording product that is easy-to-use and has good quality, Screencastify is definitely one of the best products on the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes it's difficult to communicate information just using email or chat messages. Especially when your colleagues are in a different time-zone, it makes it even more challenging. I try to solve this problem by creating short presentations or explainer videos sharing my screen and sending it as link via Google Drive or YouTube to my colleagues, clients and even friends.

"Un corto de calidad"

What do you like best?

Desde nuestra empresa en el departamento de ventas, solemos crear videos para motivar a nuestros vendedores externos, claro que nosotros no disponemos de muchos medios, solo una web cam y un microfono, con esto nos permite dar directrices a nuestros vendedores en el extranjero para que entiendan de una manera mas sencilla como funciona la empresa y los objetivos que queremos alcanzar

What do you dislike?

Lo unico que no me gusto es que para acceder a la opcion de videos con duracion ilimitada, debemos de pagar de nuestro propio bolsillo la opción premium, que es mas simple aun si puede y facil de usar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Una aplicación gratuita que nos permite grabar videos u audios, con una calidad excepcional, da gloria trabajar con herramientas como esta, pero sin duda alguna, lo mejor es lo simple que es de usar, solo con descargarla y ponerla en la barra de direcciones, me sobro para empezar a grabar las conferencias que ibamos a realizar

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Soluciono la comunicacion interprovincial entre vendedores y el departamento de ventas interno, por lo cual podemos formar vendedores sin necesidad de transladarnos a formarlos

"Buena herramienta para grabar"

What do you like best?

Como digo en el título, es una buena herramienta para grabaciones, especialmente de poca duración, ya que te permite no solo grabar de manera sencilla y alojarlo directamente en Google Drive (fantástica opción por cierto), sino que además puedes anotar, dibujar y escribir durante el vídeo mientras grabas, lo cual es muy útil para resaltar o señalar zonas, textos o lo que necesites destacar sobre el resto. Es realmente una muy buena aplicación y lo mejor es que se instala como complemento en tu navegador google chrome.

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me ha gustado sin duda es que señalar cosas con el pincel de la herramienta se antoja cutre, ya que se ve como pixelado. Sin duda deberían arreglar esa parte, porque rompe la calidad general del producto, por lo demás soberbia.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Usa sin duda screencastify para videos sencillos en web

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con esta herramienta en mi organización podemos hacer videos en los que enseñamos los datos o noticias de actualidad en España que nos interesa, para después distribuir entre nuestros subscriptores y colaboradores. Y más de una vez la he usado para enseñar algo a algún compañero que él no sabía hacer.

"Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

I like that I can create videos for my students to demonstrate a process on the computer. I can record not only my computer screen, but also my voice at the same time to show and tell students what they should be able to accomplish. I also like that my videos automatically save to my Google Drive in a Screencastify folder. That makes it easy to find videos later on.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it does not work with my document camera as much as I would like it to. I use a different program for that instead.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it a few times and play with the capabilities of the software. It is a great tool for teachers to use with their students.I think this would be helpful for teachers showing students how to do a multi-step process on the computer or how to use specific software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Screencastify as a way to communicate with my students without being in front of them walking them through a process. Screencastify allows me to be present, without being physically present.

"Use Screencastify for Tutorial Videos for Work"

What do you like best?

We love Screencastify. We end up using them for tutorial videos for work all of the time. At first, I thought we would have to hire people to make these, but I end up making these tutorials myself and they work great. Highly recommend.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. Sometimes, I think it would be nice if there were music options for my tutorials that could be added into the videos while using Screencastify. Other than that - nothing. Simple and Easy!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend Screencastify. Very easy to use and very inexpensive. We love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We make tutorials for clients. So we're recording our software. It's saving me a ton of money that I thought I would have to hire for, instead I can make them myself.

"Makes Online Tutorials a Breeze! "

What do you like best?

Screencastify is the easiest way to troubleshoot online issues that our clients are going through. In just a few easy steps I am able to share my screen, talk through the steps and share video files so that my client can get an easy, personal, step-by-step guide.

What do you dislike?

So far, not a thing! I've loved every aspect of the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it and have fun!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When clients have trouble navigating their software programs like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, I am able to conduct a short "how to" video to show them how to fix their problem. I've also been able to help clients upload their artwork to our dropbox folder so that we can access and print their needs.

"quick install easy to use"

What do you like best?

It's free! It takes a second to install and learn how to use it. It saves your videos automatically into one folder, for easy quick future reference.

What do you dislike?

The free version leaves their logo on it. You cannot also edit the videos after recording on the free version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving my testing of sites, I am also saving things I find useful. I am solving the issue of misrepresenting an issue encountered by recording a video.
