Techsmith Capture - Copy to clipboard

I've been using JING for a long time and switched to Techsmith Capture (because of the Flash videos in JING)

Overall, the Techsmith Capture does work OK, but it's slower and takes more clicks to complete an action.

One of the most useful features would be to copy the uploaded URL directly to clipboard. Right now, there are several steps I need to do:
  1. press the "Continue" button once the upload completed, which opens a new tab in the browser
  2. go to the new browser tab and copy the URL
  3. close the tab (it's useless, since I know what I have filmed)
From my point of view, all 3 steps can be discarded (like JING does: once the upload is completed, copy the URL to clipboard and add a self-closing notification that the URL is copied to clipboard)

Thanks, SilviuZaharia! 
We are addressing this in two steps-
First, we'd like to change that "upload complete..." dialog to let you just close (instead of having to continue to the website) and automatically copy the URL to the clipboard. But, there's still a click to dismiss it. So, fix that and ship it.

Then, because this takes more time, we're looking into having more subtle "pop ups" after sharing, the way Jing or Snagit does. This takes longer to implement, so we wanted to get the quick fix of step 1 out right away.

I agree with this. Additionally, it would be nice to not have the dialog that needs to be closed after copying to clipboard. Similarly to how Jing worked before, it is nice to have a small unobtrusive popup in the bottom right corner of the screen that just says "Copied to clipboard" would be perfect.
