StartMeeting, a cost-effective multi-feature web conferencing and collaboration service has introduced StartMeeting Studio, a free tool which allows you to record your own presentations, tutorials or screencasts, archive them online or download them and share with your readers across key social media channels.
StartMeeting Studio is effectively a free but effective screencasting tool which allows you to record both your computer screen activities as well as your own voice.
During recording you can pause and restart the recording at any point. The final recording is immediately available after you press the Stop button, can be viewed right away or downloaded as an .flv file.
Works across Macs and PCs.
You don't need to have any previous account with StartMeeting to use this. Just sign-up and go.
My comment: Very easy to use. Effective, reliable out of the box. Good extra bonus the ability to download the recording.
Free to use.
