Snagit has been my all time favourite tool. It's a daily program I use along with evernote and dropbox. However, I really would like to add video from my webcam as well as what they see on my screen (video in video). Will this feature be added anytime soon?

I can do it now, but I have to use screenflow (yeah I know you would like me to use camtasia instead). :) But either way it's just not as easy as a one button record sitting on the side of my window like snagit does all day long and then a simple one button upload to my screencast account. No opening up other programs and so on.

Hope it (or a solution) is coming soon. If you have a date for this I would love to know.
Regards
Rudy...

Great to see someone noticed my post and 'moved' it in here - but is there a chance someone at snagit could give us as update? It's been 8 months since the last employee said something in here. I guess we can check out google hangouts in the meantime.

Agree with the above comments. The webcam switch was a very appreciated feature on Jing. It will be great to have on Jing Snag-It or both.

I used to use Jing Pro to send video emails that I could switch to screen sharing on the fly. I gave great internal demos and the file sizes were small. I was told the service was going away, and I should purchase Snag it.

I just did and noted this record from laptop camera is not there.

This was a disappointment. Jing Pro with camera and desktop toggling was a far superior user exerience.

I would like to record webcam and screen as well. Or do you know any software that just opens up a window with my webcam only showing?

On a Mac OSX, try the App on iTunes called "Headsup" - it displays what the iCamera sees. Position the little window and start recording the whole Screen with SnagIt.

Snagit folks should maybe think about buying a utility like this and including it in the install.

On the Mac OSX, you can try using an app on the iTunes store called Headsup. It gives you a window of what the iCamera sees. Position this window on your screen and use SnagIt to record whole screen.

I have suggested to the Snagit folks that all they need to do is buy someone's existing utility source code like this and include the utility in the install.
