ScreenToaster web based screen recorder adds audio capture
ScreenToaster is a web-based screencasting utility that works via a Java applet. That means that as long as you've got Java installed you can use ScreenToaster to record screencasts on any computer running OS X, Windows, or Linux without installing any additional software.
Last time we looked at ScreenToaster it had a few limitations. You couldn't record live audio and you couldn't save screencasts to your computer, and you needed an beta invitation to use the service. This week ScreenToaster released a major update that features support for live audio recordings, variable speed recordings, and the ability to embed your webcam in the screen capture.
Users can also now download screencasts as AVI files in addition to saving them to the ScreenToaster web site. And best of all, while still need to register to use the site, it takes just a few seconds to verify your registration. No more two day waiting period.
The video quality of recordings is quite good, and far better than recordings made with Screencast-o-matic, another web-based screencast recorder.
