No longer able to download videos from Screencast

  • Updated 8 months ago
I create short how-to videos using SnagIt and upload them through the SnagIt editor to ScreenCast.Com. I used to encourage people to download the videos using the following method:

1. Click Play on the video
2. Right-click on the video
3. Choose Save Video As...

That way, if I ever had to delete the video, they would have it on their computer for future reference.

Nowadays it appears there is no right-click menu. I saw there was a new initiative about 9 months ago to make videos not downloadable unless we choose to do so. (read the last post at https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/preventing-users-from-downloading-videos ). However, I cannot find any way to enable these downloads for future uploads I push onto ScreenCast. The setting in the screenshot p.stanos posted is in a window that doesn't pop-up when uploading to ScreenCast from SnagIt Editor.

Is there a setting in SnagIt Editor or ScreenCast that can be switched so all videos are still downloadable? If not, is there a way to make my videos downloadable after upload?

Thanks!

You can change settings in Screencast.




For the most part I don't use Screencast.If there are alternative methods, I'm unaware of them.

Perhaps you might have to rightclick on the video after it's finished uploading. (screencast change)

Perhaps you could look in screencast settings for anything that might control that..
