I don't believe there are any restrictions on recordings made using Jing. But I'm not a lawyer nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. So you might want to contact TechSmith to ask for sure. I'm not sure what you mean by "commercial use".

Jing Pro is no more as of March 1, 2013.

Hye Rick :)

thank you for your info on jing pro. my intention is to use jing for commercial purpose which mean for company work not for personal use. as i know that JING is freeware but i'm not sure is it only free for personal use or can also be use for company (commercial usage).

is it required any registration to install or download the software? i had read some user experience that it required them to show licenses before install the product. correct me if i'm wrong.

thank you :)

I'm not seeing anything indicating that there are any restrictions on what you capture using Jing.

But just to be on the safe side, I'd suggest you contact TechSmith support and ask.

Techsmith offers free Support for their products.

You normally visit the Jing page, then download and install the Jing software on your PC.

Hi elin - there are no restrictions on using Jing for commercial purposes. Free registration is required. You will be prompted to create a TechSmith ID and must remain logged into that account in order to use Jing, which is integrated with our content sharing service Screencast.com. The Jing Pro paid offering was retired a number of years ago and is no longer available for download or for purchase. 

All that said, I would encourage you to check out Snagit, which is Jing's "big brother." Snagit's capabilities are much more focused on corporate use, for things like creating documentation or training material for co-workers and customers. Snagit's video capture capabilities are also more robust, with the ability to trim out parts of a video and generate a broadly-shareable MP4 file. Snagit is free to try for 15 days and after that costs $49.95 (one-time fee).

I second this sentiment.  for a while there, I had some technical difficulties that kept me from using Snagit, so I reverted to Jing.  It, Jing, is a fairly basic screen capture program, pretty nice when compared to  the built in Windows screen capture tool, and the screen capture tools that come built in to other programs; but when it comes to doing much beyond the most basic stuff, like annotation, you really need Snagit.

I was SO GLAD when my technical difficulties were resolved and I could use Snagit again!  You really don't know what you got till it's gone!
