Capture/Record Computer Screen And Audio With GoView

Do you want to record a demo of a software or do you plan to give a live presentation? Or maybe you want to help someone solve a computer problem? The whole blogosphere is talking about ScreenCastle, a free service let’s you record screencasts online without having to download anything. But have they forgotten about GoView?

GoView is a free online service that lets you record computer screen with audio(if you have a microphone) and better yet, it also lets you edit the recorded screencast online. You must have JavaScript and cookies enabled, otherwise it won’t work. You have to install the GoView screen recorder(which takes less than a minute to get automatically installed). Once installed, right-click the GoView icon in the system tray and select Record Screen & Audio to begin recording the screencast.

To select the microphone go to Preferences, if you don’t have any then the audio won’t be recorded. Once the recording begins, the icon will turn red. You can cancel or pause the recording anytime, once the recording is done, right-click the icon and select Stop.

  1. Very informative! Thanks for showing clearly how to record computer screen. I used to do that with a free web-based application called Acethinker Online Screen Recorder, works pretty well. Share it here as an alternative to goview.

  2. Just curious…why would you want to use an online service when you can download a free program like CamStudio…and not have to wonder what the online service might be doing with your info / recordings?

  3. I was looking for a tip like this! This for sure helps with gaming, and even internet marketing teaching someone how to do something on your own computer without being there! Brilliant, I love technology that evolves into making life simpler!
