This page details the process I perform to create screencasts.
I use the CamStudio application to grab the screen.
The CamStudio application will create an avi video file which is then loaded in to the Video Editing software.
I use the Corel VideoStudio Pro X4 product to perform Video Editing on Windows 7.
To save money I download from the Corel US store (not the Australian Store).

I created a shell script called webvideo.sh to take an input video and output the 4 video files for hosting on my website. This runs on Ubuntu Linux.
The script is run by passing two parameters.
Parameter 1: the video filename (without extension),
Parameter 2: the video file extension.
To process an mpeg video file called AsrockDemo.mpg you type:
webvideo.sh AsrockDemo mpg
This will create 4 video files:
I upload the 4 video files using WinSCP to my website.
I follow the following HTML 5 "Video on the web" instructions to present my screencast.
Here is the HTML code for the AsrockDemo screencast:
This web hosting process has been tested on:
The flv (or flash) version of the screencast may be used with Facebook. See my hobby page regarding my Social Networking Website Enhacements for more details.
