Creating screencasts

You’re free to choose any tool you want to use to create screencasts. It’s important, that you provide a .mp4 video with appropriate quality (resolution and presentation).
Recent browsers should be able to play your video.

Your screencast should only show the reported bug +/- 10 seconds – try to avoid screencasts that are longer than 1 minute. You should have the sounds switched off unless required for the report.

  1. Is there a password for temporary premium accounts for screen-o-matic? I remember having seen it somewhere…


    1. Hi,

      there was but unfortunately we’re out of licenses.

      But you don’t necessarily need the premium version.

      Kind regards,
