Summary: Moved project to GitHub
< This is a mode for creating your own screencasts, to be displayed inside Emacs.
< * Download: http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/screencast.el
< The file is self-documenting just load it, and type
< M-x screencast-screencast-producer
< M-x screencast-screencast-user
> See https://github.com/esbena/screencast-mode
< Most screencasts are based on the info-page or describe-mode.
< A reasonable question is: why not read the info-page, which
< contains more details, instead?
< I have three answers:
< * some people finds it easier to watch movies than read static text.
< * screencast-mode '''displays''' the capabilities of a mode,
< instead of '''describing''' them.
< * those who just need to know '''how''' to use a mode doesn't
< need all the details of the info-page.
< If videos are superior in some way, why not just create a
< regular video displaying someone doing the things then?
< I have three answers again:
< * a video is static, it's hard to change it if you discover
< an error - you'll have to do it in one take unless you got
< some video editing software.
< * the screencast sources can be edited by others, inviting
< collaboration (also it's a lot smaller size-wise)
< * the screencast will tell the user if his Emacs is
< configured right to use the feature it explains
< A list of screencasts is available at ScreencastSources
< You can save the screencast as a movie for some video
< service (you-tube etc.) using ScreencastRecord.
< The recorded screencasts are listed at ScreencastRecordings.
< EmacsScreencasts contains a list of screencasts about Emacs
< made without screencast-mode.
