We knew when enterprise live-casting service Veodia purchased screencasting tool ScreenToaster last month that it was already working on a product based on its acquisition’s technology. Last night, Veodia “quietly” launched Screenjelly (get it? Toast — Jelly?), a sort of snackable screencasting service.
Screenjelly is a browser-based tool that lets users create short recordings of what’s happening on their computer screens and instantly share them via Twitter, Facebook, email and other social media outlets. Veodia CEO Guillaume Cohen wrote via email:
“It differentiates from Screentoaster, which is for producing a tutorial or demo meant to be hosted on a blog or web site. Screenjelly focuses on the communication/sharing aspect, not on the ‘production’ aspect, and its interface is simpler and designed for that. Main use cases are sharing software tips, bugs, or anything on your screen that would take too long to describe via text.”
Our initial tests show that Screenjelly works as promised. I created a simple screencast, and the service automatically created a URL for me to blast out on Twitter. Unfortunately, there’s no embed feature; I can only provide a link to my amazing screencast.
