Last weekend I had the opportunity to talk with the developers of Snagit 12 – New Release! Click Here at the Podcast and New Media (Video) Expo in Ontario California. This was my second year attending the show. Next year it is growing up and moving to Vegas.

Anyway, I learned about a simple new screen capture program that TechSmith (the makers of SnagIt and TechSmith’s Camtasia Studio Camtasia Studio (for PC) Here or TechSmith’s Camtasia for Mac Camtasia for Mac Here are working on. Its a free software called, Jing. It is like a super light and simple version of Camtasia.

You can snap screen shots, or capture video and upload and share it fast.

Think screen capture mixed with YouTube, but faster and easier than both, oh and very very very basic and simple tools.

The Jing download is simple too, just 4.4mb and you are ready to run.

The .NET Problem

Jing requires a .NET installation on your computer to run. I have .NET, but its installed on a separate machine. When I attempted to run the installation, it died on me. 🙁


So tomorrow, i will try and get VB .NET installed on this machine and then attempt to get Jingy on my machine.

If that doesn’t work, then I’ll try and contact the developers again to see what gives.
