Screencastify (1.21+) now features optional, audible countdown. This makes it easier to get the recording started at the right time (for example if you need to switch to another application first). https://youtu.be/_hvJdPrpxJU

We experienced a server-side issue that prevented Youtube uploads for recordings stored on Drive during the past few hours.
The issue has been resolved in the meanwhile and Youtube uploads should now work again now as usual.

Sorry for any inconveniences caused.

Screencastify (1.19+) now shows a better visualization for touches with tab recording (on touchscreens or when touches are emulated with the Chrome Developer Tools).

Screencastify currently cannot be installed due to accidental take-down
We just received a take-down notice from the Chrome Web, claiming:

"We have observed [Screencastify] being distributed by software that bypasses these user protection features by silently installing the extension and by directly modifying the user preferences file in Chrome without using the Chrome Settings API."

This is obviously a mistake. We don't use an such malicious distribution techniques. We despise such ourselves. We don't even develop, nor distribute ANY non-Web Apps. One of the great things about Web/Chrome Apps like Screencastify actually is, that the Web Platform comes with build security that does not allow such activities technically in the first place.

There is currently nothing we can do to get it back online. We'll just have to wait for someone at Google to do that.

@Chrome Web Store team: Are such take downs generated automatically? As much as we appreciate your efforts to keep malicious items out of the Web Store, we find this situation very unpleasant. A more refined removal procedure (like manual reviews, contacting developers upfront, ...) for taking such drastic actions, would definitely be appreciated.

You can now move, show/hide and resize the embedded webcam video when recording a tab in Screencastify 1.18 (rolling out now).

Youtube Upload working again

We don't have any official confirmation yet, but data tells us that Youtube upload issues have been resolved in the meanwhile (see https://plus.google.com/+ScreencastifyChrome/posts/3BUysVVSnp9)

Youtube Upload is currently non-functional
Due to a current issue with the Youtube API, Youtube applies a incorrect API usage quota to Screencastify since April 21th. This effectively renders uploads impossible for most users.
We are in contact with Google to get this resolved as soon as possible.
If you need to upload something urgently, please use the manual upload on https://www.youtube.com/upload until this is fixed.

Version 1.15:
- Easier sharing of videos: There is now a "Get Link" button to upload and get a shareable link with a single click.
- Easier cropping: You can now draw a rectangle directly instead of moving all edges separately.
- Other minor improvements and fixes.
