You’re already posting messages, links, and photos on Twitter, and now a web-based application is making it easier-than-ever to post your own videos, too. Developed as a way to let Twitter users create screencasts for their followers, Screenr offers up a straightforward way to record videos on your computer and upload them directly onto Twitter, in a format that will play on nearly any web-enabled device.
Getting started with Screenr is as simple as hooking up your computer’s webcam, inputting your Twitter login information, and pressing record. Once you’re finished recording, watch the video and add a description before uploading it directly onto Twitter. Screencasts can be up to five minutes long, and because Screenr runs within your web browser, there’s no need to download or install any confusing software.
For users who’d like to distribute their screencasts further, Screenr allows you to upload videos directly to YouTube, embed them in your blog, or download them to your desktop. If you are looking for a simple, straightforward way to create short videos to share online, Screenr is an application worth checking out.
