- Recording profiles that allow you to render your screencast to one or more video formats (camrec, flash, windows media, screencast.com, YouTube, iTunesU)
- LDAP authentication or local user list
- iTunesU does have a small limitation in that you MUST have access to the shared secret...which typically is only one per organization. SO I can't play since my IT group obviously wouldn't give it to me. However, if they decide to adopt this technology, I'm sure hoping they set it up for auto upload.
- LDAP authentication
- FTP/sFTP upload with the ability to have multiple upload locations pre-defined. I've got some of my users uploading to their public_html directory on the campus servers.
- The client is built on the fly during the server configuration, removing a huge number of configuration items and automatically loading the SSL certificate.
- Clients are FREE! The licensing is ALL at the server
- Guest recordings can be used that will send an email notification to a "valid host" user. They then decide which profile to use for that guest video.
- You can also use "Upload and Decide" later if you need to do the recording but perhaps don't have the website quite ready yet.
- Licenses can be added at any time and can be added in increments
The Client icon looks like a green podium and is dead simple to use. After choosing where the audio will come from, you literally just click "record" and click "stop" when you're done. The only gotcha I've found is that the message after you "submit" your video (the choice you get after you click "stop") leads you to believe that the video has already been uploaded to the server. NOT TRUE! I would strongly suggest logging into the web interface to confirm the upload progress. You can disconnect from your network connection and the upload will continue when you next connect. Once fully uploaded the "profile" will control what video formats the server will render your video in (multiple types per job is easy) and where to upload each piece of video.
Here I've shown how to handle the tilde "~" indicator for my public_html folder common on a lot of Linux+Apache systems.
