so i recently tried screenr and screenjelly to make screencasts. one problem, the java didn’t load in my conkeror. it says i need to to install it. however, when i tried them in firefox and safari, things were working. must mean conkeror isn’t finding it. emailed the conkeror list, got one feedback, googled for help. after some research, i found a solution that works:
downloaded java embedding plugin http://javaplugin.sourceforge.net/ placed the 2 ‘files’ in the binaries directory in the zipped files (JavaEmbeddingPlugin.bundle and MRJPlugin.plugin) in Library/Internet Plug-Ins and now java works in conkeror for mac os x.
conkeror is so cool.
so these days everyone is making videos, especially tutorials on their computer. screenr and screenjelly are two services that allow you to make the screencasts easily. u go to their website, load their java app, select the screen space u want to record, and hit record. the first service gives u up to 5 minutes, and the 2nd to 3 minutes, plenty of time for a typical screencast. anything longer and u run into the danger of boring your audience.
after u record, u can post it on twitter easily or to other social media outlets such as youtube. gosh, it’s so easy. u don’t even need to install any additional software (if u have java already), don’t have to name and save files, don’t have to upload and store it somewhere. the process is so simple!
these services give web apps hopes!
