How to make a video blog and screencast

Here's a quick step by step guide showing how I make video blogs and screencasts, and the tools I use to share them.

My main tools are:

PhotoBooth to record video, comes standard on any Mac

iShowU by ShinyWhiteBox for screencast capture

Vimeo (similar to YouTube) for uploading videos.  Especially useful is their desktop uploader tool.

Made a Screencast

Today I wanted to follow the instructions on "How to Make a Video Blog and Screencast" to learn to make a quick video blog or screencast. Only one problem - the guide there describes how to do it on a Mac, not on Windows.

Odio describes and demonstrates his basic process:

1 .PhotoBooth to record video, comes standard on any Mac 2. iShowU by ShinyWhiteBox for screencast capture 3. Vimeo (similar to YouTube) for uploading videos. Especially useful is their desktop uploader tool.

Unfortunately, PhotoBooth and iShowU aren't available on Windows. It took me a couple hours of research, but eventually I found a program that does both: Cyberlink Youcam. It's quite a good program, it's minimalistic and stays out of your way, but has enough power. Fast learning curve. Elegant. Auto-saves when you've hit stop, so you're already ready to go.
