Screencast-O-Matic for OS X 10.6 for Mac

Editors' Review


Screencast-O-Matic for OS X 10.7 or Later is a lightweight tool to help you capture screenshots and videos on your Mac and publish them directly. Just drag and size the capture box, and then start your recording or snap a still shot, and you're good to go.


Great interface: It's hard to imagine an easier way to start a screenshot or video than the one this app provides. All you have to do is drag the box into position wherever you want it on the screen, and then resize it so it captures the section of the screen that you need.

Direct publishing: When you're satisfied with the image or video you've captured, you can publish it straight from the app. Options for upload include the Screencast-O-Matic site and YouTube, or you can just publish to a video file and distribute it later on.


Watermarks: Published videos that you create with this app do contain watermarks. If you want to remove the watermarks, and also access some other advanced features, you can subscribe to the Premium service for $15 per year.

Mouse and typing sounds: The sounds of typing and the mouse clicking in recordings were quite loud. And without the editing tools that come with the Premium service, you can't do anything to adjust their volume.

Bottom Line

Screencast-O-Matic is a convenient and versatile program that makes taking screenshots and videos a manageable process for users of all experience levels. Because the price is so reasonable, it's probably worth upgrading to the Premium service for all of the benefits it provides, but it's nice to be able to test out the program for free first. And if you don't need editing tools and don't mind the watermarks, the free version may work fine for you indefinitely.

"Has some limitations that are not advertised"

December 04, 2013  |  By eob--2008

 |  Version: Screencast-O-Matic for OS X 10.6 1.4


Very easy to use, no instructions needed. Can save video to file in various formats.


Max recording 15 minutes. Can't change the screen while recording. Records sound in the air, so you have a very quiet room (records sound of mouse clicks, e.g.). Takes a lot of time to save the file.
