How to Share Screencast-O-Matic Videos

Screen Capture Videos – Today I will be showing you the how to do a screen capture video and then I will be showing you how to share that video with just a few people or the world. Before I begin I would like to tell you that the product/software I use to do this is called Screencast-O-Matic.

Screencast-O-Matic is my choice of just one of the many screen capture programs out there.

Screencast-O-Matic provides

  • free or paid accounts
  • is simple to use
  • 15-minute recordings
  • Screen & webcam recording
  • Publish to YouTube
  • Save as video file
  • Great Help tutorials
  • Quality Support
  • No software downloads
  • Mobile friendly

and I could go on and on. I have been using the Screencast-O-Matic suite for over 3 years now and was so impressed with the software I upgraded to the Pro account for the small fee of $15 a year within the first year of using it. As you can tell I am a raving fan of Screencast-O-Matic and recommend it to anyone who is asking.

I reckon that of 3+ years of  hassle free use and only needing to contact support once when I first joined is a damn good track record.

Screencast-O-Matic  Made Simple –

Now no matter how simple something is to use there will always be those who know even less than you do and require that little bit extra help in using even the simplest of programs and that is what my website and me is all about. Helping those who are stuck or struggling to understand what may seem so very simple to so many others.

So this blog post is not only to give my review opinion on a product but to also answer a question that keeps popping up from others using the Screencast-O-Matic software and that question is!!!

How To Download & Install a Plugin on WordPress

Downloading and Installing Plugins on WP 4 Beginners

Plugins on a WordPress website a fairly common. Web-masters use plugins for a majority of things on their websites from functionality to collecting leads.
Now the WordPress platform has many free plugins available but sometimes you are just wanting a plugin that is that little bit extra.
These types of plugins, free and paid are bountiful amongst third party developers and depending on what you need you can generally find what your looking for.
So today I am not going into the deep realms of plugins. What I want to do with this post is show beginners how easy it is to install a plugin onto their website from a third party developer.

Now before you more experienced computer and internet savvy users jump up and down and scream

“oh gee every-one knows how to do that”

Step back and shut up; not everyone grew up with a computer in their cradle and for some of us, growing up, like myself computers were only existent in sci-fi movies set in the future.

Beginners Guide to Downloading and Installing Plugins

So you have purchased or found a plugin outside of the WordPress platform.

Now how do I get it onto my website?

Step 1. Make sure you are on the correct plugin page and you should see a download button. Click on that button

Step 2. In your computer window that has opened up choose where on your computer you want to put the plugin file. Remember where you put it.

Step 3. Log into your website and choose plugin – add new and wait for page to load.

Step 4. See the button at the top of this page that says upload, click on this and wait.

Step 5. Your computer window will have opened and you can now select the plugin file you downloaded early. Once you click on it and upload the plugin file is now on your website.

Step 6. Activate your plugin.

Okay so that sounds pretty simple I know but for some it can be daunting and challenging.
To help you even more I have recorded this short video of me doing this live with a third-party plugin on one of my WordPress websites.
