I have uploaded an MP4 video in my Screencast account which now has a URL assigned to it for sharing. I would like to be able to replace this video with a revised version, and keep the same URL so that I don't have to warn each person to whom I sent the first address that they must now use a different address to get to it. How can I do that in Screencast ?

Hi Diane,
You can upload a new video to replace an older video AND retain the same link.

This is done within Screencast.com on the page of the existing video.

Essentially, you upload the new video as an attachment, swap it for the old one, then delete the old one.
When doing this, do NOT rename the NEW video with the same name as the old video. The swap won't work with files using the same names.

Here are the complete instructions:

I hope this helps!
