SnagIt for Google Chrome, fast and easy GIF files

The SnagIt, is a popular program to copy images and videos from for Windows and Mac. We use it από τότε που εμφανίστηκε και είμαστε ενθουσιασμένοι. Αυτή η δημοσίευση όμως δεν αφορά την εφαρμογή αλλά ένα plugin που είναι ότι είναι διαθέσιμο για το Google Chrome. Η επέκταση του Chrome έρχεται δωρεάν και μπορεί να “πιάσει” από την επιφάνεια εργασίας σας, καθώς και βίντεο screencasts. Τα βίντεο μάλιστα μπορούν να φορτωθούν απευθείας στο YouTube ή στο Google Drive μέσα από την εφαρμογή SnagIt.


The most recent version of it Chrome Snagit enables the screencast video to be saved as animated GIF, a format that is perfect for fast short demos publishing. The only condition is that your recorded video should be up to 20 seconds. GIF is sent to your Google Drive or you can download it locally.

If you are not using the latest version of Google Chrome, it may take a few steps to enable screencasting support in you.

The first step is to install the SnagIt app and the extension from the Chrome Store (both available for free). Then you should go from your browser to chrome://flags and click on the setting that says Enable Screen Support or Enable Screen Capture Support in getUserMedia(). Restart the program s Chrome.

Like other Chrome screen sharing apps, SnagIt uses WebRTC to record the screencast. When you press the record button, a private screen sharing session starts without other participants, and all your screen activities are saved as an .AVI file.

The only downside is that the SnagIt extension for Chrome can capture either your entire desktop screen or a single browser window. That means you don't have the option of a custom area.

Another good alternative is the Screencastify extension for Chrome. Videos are saved as .WebM that play in almost all modern no plugins required. Screencast videos can be uploaded to Youtube and Google Drive, but it does not create GIFs. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
