Screencastify is a simple video screen capture software for Chrome. It is able to record all screen activity inside a tab, including audio. Just press record and the content of your tab is recorded. So you can easily create a screencast for video tutorials, record presentations etc. It also supports desktop capturing, allowing you to record anything on your screen (not just tabs). Videos can be saved to disk or uploaded to Youtube or Google Drive with a single click. Screencastify does not depend on any external software (like Java, Flash or other plugins). So it also runs on Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. Video recording happens completely locally. So your recordings are not transferred to any remote system unless you choose to upload them. When choose to store your recordings on Google Drive, they are uploaded to your Google Drive account after recording and removed from local storage. This helps to save local storage space, especially on Chromebooks and allows access your recordings from other devices. The free version allows to record videos that are 10 minutes long.
