Suppose you want to share a quick screencast with your friend or co-worker, what will you do? Search a screencast tool, download it, install it, learn to use it, record the actual screencast, name it, save it, and send it. Woah! that’s a long lists. Instead you can simply grab TinyTask.
It is a free portable tool for windows that performs some basic automation tasks such as recording and playback. Just launch it, press record and it will begin recording. When done, press record again and it will stop recording.
When done, hit Play(hotkey F5) and it will play the screencast instantly. You can also hit Save to save the screencast in .rec format. The little utility has a total of 6 buttons, Open, Save, Record, Play, and Compile, and Options.
According to the developer, the entire program is only 29k – and 14k of that are icons, which means the executable portion is just a few K in size. Which in my opinion, is quite remarkable. From options you can choose options such as Play Speed, Continuous Playback, and Set Repeat Counts. It works on all versions of Windows.
Also check out TinyTalk, it allows you to talk over LAN or Internet. Even through the name sounds similar, both the apps are from different developers. Enjoy!
