Create screen captures and video tutorials using Camtasia for the Mac for only 49 US$ instead of 99 US$

I think it must be 10 years since I first invested in Camtasia for Windows and it is one tool I would not be without when it comes to creating online video tutorials or for editing my video content including re-purposing Hangouts On Air.

If you are using a Mac you may have invested in Screenflow. If  you may not be interested in this offer.

Some of the things you can do include:

- recording your screen, webcam, and audio all at the same time

- annotate your video with text, arrows, animated drawings, and calls to action

- export your video in the correct solution for YouTube.

I also use Snagit on a daily basis - another software programme from the creators of Camtasia.

Check out the offer here - I am not sure how long it will be available at this price -

Scroll down the page to see the offer - you don't have to register with your email address to see it - it is just their way of building theie email lis.

Disclosure - this offer is from Appsumo (a service I use) and the link is my referral link, so if you make your first ever purchase with them using this link they will give me a 10 US$ credit on my own Appsumo account in the future. So thank you in advance if you invest in this great video editing and screen capture tool.

An overview of how to use Meerkat for live streaming

Have you been experimenting with the live streaming app for iOS devices that connects through Twitter? If you have not yet had the opportunity to see the app in action this short video turorial may be of assistance.

I am on Meerkat and you can find me at - do let me know what your handle is so that I can join you in some of your livestreams.

There are some key differences between Hangouts On Air and Meerkat - I do hope that Google take note about how easy it is to start a livestream and perhaps update their mobile Hangouts app sooner rather than later.

Could be! +Krishna De  The potential for #meerkat    similar live streaming tools is huge! We love this App! I totally agree that Google/YouTube has to get with the program and fix the issues that we constantly encounter!

I can imagine that they are looking at this as we speak.

Introducing Interactive Cards For Your YouTube Videos And Live Streams

Today YouTube announced the introduction of Cards - which they comment are an evolution of annotations. They can inform your viewers about other videos, merch, playlists and associated websites and will work on all devices.

Googler +Tony Ruscoe writes about the Cards here and that he has been working on the feautre for over a year He is also inviting people to leave feedback for the development team on what your thoughts are about Cards.

You can read about YouTube Cards here

You can add Cards to individual videos and provide a way to add a call-to-action text. the approved Fundraising and Merchadise sites can ge found here

You can read more information about the Cards here

Apparently the Cards will work on live streams as mentioned here - I have yet to explore what this really means when setting up a live stream.

And for more information about adding Cards to your YouTube videos you can find the details here

Viewers will see an icon appear when they hover over the player on desktop or whenever the player controls are showing on mobile. They can then click the icon to browse all of the cards present on the video.

And in YouTube analytics you will be able to see the performance metrics for your Cards - this provides you with more information on this feature

How do you plan to experiment with YouTube Cards?

To see an example of the new YouTube cards in action you can watch my video below - it is a short video of screen captures which I created earlier this year for a client - you will see the notification appear in the top right of the video and if you click the icon you will see the image, call to action and link.

Periscope App for live streaming - three key updates you need to know about if you are in marketing or communications

In this video I cover three of the key updates in the Periscope App update from 8 April 2015.

In particular I really appreciate the updating to how to block spam comments - though I think to manage this effectively you need to have a producer or moderator with you if you have a lot of attendees at your live stream events or have a high profile guest - just as you would with Google Hangouts On Air.

What organisation have you been most excited to see using Periscope?

+Phil Aston Yes I have noticed that too (though fortunatley not on my own live streams todate).  It is going to put some people off using live streaming I think.

I was speaking to a well know authority and author in social media marketing yesterday who I was taking through how to use Periscope and Meerkat and he did not understand initially why his feed was also filled with some not appropriate content!

I also personally am disliking the gamification of the hearts that I am seeing a few people in the UK and Ireland do at the moment - but perhaps that is just me?!

The issue of rights to live streaming content

A topic I think few people are considering when it comes to the newer live streaming mobile apps of #Meerkat and #Periscope is that of the rights to content.

+Susan Finch addresses them in her latest article over on LinkedIn.

#Livestreaming #marketing #digitalmarketing #marketingwithvideo  
Thank you, +Krishna De for inspiring this rant. Tools are fun but they can be abused if they are too easy and don't require much thought before you test them out.  Meerkat, YouTube, Periscope, LiveStream and the rest.  You may think you are doing the speaker a favor to promote them, but you should make sure you have all permissions. Chime in here.

How to automate the saving of your Meerkat live stream to YouTube using Katchkat

You may have been experimenting with Meerkat - well now there are more apps being launched to support your Meerkat habit (or addiction)!

One that I explored earlier this week was Katchkat which through the power of a hashtag, automatically takes your Meerkat recording and posts it as an unlisted video on theri YouTube channel.

This is the recording that I saved to my own phone after testing the app - and yes it did work - my recording was archived.

There was a conversationhere earlier on Google Plus that +Mia Voss started (a fellow Meerkaster) and one of the things you will see in the comment stream of her post is a discussion about the issue of rights. I talk briefly on this topic in the video.

See Mia's post here

I am on Meerkat and you can find me at - do let me know what your handle is so that I can join you in some of your livestreams.


If you are unfamiliar with Meerkat you can watch an over video I posted here

You can aslo see some other articles about Meerkat here

Additional Information And A Video Tutorial About The New YouTube Cards

Further to my previous post I thought you would find it helpful to see the video tutorial that +Tim Schmoyer over at +Video Creators has published.

I also encourage you to check out the comments on the video on YouTube as time and the followers of his content post their feedback on the new feature.

One thing to note is that you can also upload a customised image to connect to your YouTube Card - I did that for the video I shared here

I certainly recommend you do this if you want to optimise your visual content marketing.

In addition Googler +Tony Ruscoe was good enough to come back to me about my question on using YouTube Cards for live events.

He commented:

Creators can currently add cards to live events at any time, but only those viewers who either join or reload the broadcast after the card was added will be able to see it. It’s therefore recommended to add cards as soon as possible after creating the live event.

So be sure to add this to your live event set up list.

Let me know how you get on adding YouTube Cards to your videos and live events and what you discover works best for your video content marketing.
