Hey Product Hunt!

Great to be back on here. Big ups to @erictwillis for hunting us ๐Ÿ™Œ

Openvid is a the easiest way for anyone to quickly record your screen, mic, and (optionally!) front-facing camera on any URL. Want to easily QA your new mock ups? Give feedback to a friend on their site? Create a quick tutorial for your product? Openvid letโ€™s you do that for free without having to worry about video storage, upload time, or recording time limits.

@webtech @_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas haha thanks Rod! Let me know if you have any issues or feature requests! :-)

@vhmth @_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas Would be great to have a countdown option before the recording starts, and would it be possible to add control over which camera is used?

Vinay Hiremathย โ€” Founder & Head of Engineering @ Opentest
@webtech @_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas both great ideas. Added the countdown to the roadmap. Joe had brought this up previously. That's Joe 2 - Vinay 0 for feature requests from people. :-P

Will add the control over the camera to the roadmap as well. Do you currently use multiple cams?

@vhmth @_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas I have 3 when using my Surface in the dock - front and back on the device and then the attached web cam. Could be a programming challenge just to cater to oddballs like me, but that would be yuuge.

@webtech @_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas let's make it happen. I can't guaranteed that it will be right away since it's not one of our more highly requested features, but it's now on our radar. When it happens, it will be YUUUUUGE! :D

@vhmth @_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas Awesome - great job and keep rockin it.

@_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas @vhmth Awesome, congrats guys ;)
@_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas @vhmth does it also record the sound playing on your computer?

Vinay Hiremathย โ€” Founder & Head of Engineering @ Opentest
@colindevs @_shahedk @erictwillis @yoyo_thomas as of right now it does not, but we will definitely introduce that. We shipped with the mic for now (which will pick up on sounds from your computer if you're not using your headphones), but we did not do this initially because we're trying to figure out a good balance of system and mic audio so you can clearly hear both at the appropriate time (mixing two audio streams).

@_shahedk great product! Any chance of moving outside chrome and allow to record anything on a Mac (like recordit)?

@leozakour Yes - that's definitely in our roadmap. If you'd like us to build it out sooner, we actually have a public feature board now: https://opentest.co/requests !!

This looks legit. I've previously used the TechSmith Snagit extension to record screencasts; but this looks a lot better. Minimalistic, but with the functionality that I need.

the ability to record a video and then quickly get a link to share it is really important here. With some other solutions I have to mess around uploading the video to my youtube account and wait for it to process etc.

@vhmth thanks for the video Vinay, very thoughtful. - You guys have already shipped more cool stuff with limited resources than many startups with millions $ in funding, so I'm excited to see how this continues to evolve.

@_jacksmith @vhmth also a big TechSmith Snagit user. Def gonna test this out. Do you know any good seamless tools to record system audio + standard audio for calls? I've actually used Snagit for this as well and even gone through the headaches of Soundflower...
Daniel Fosterย โ€” TechSmith strategy lead
@nwkwan Hi Nick - thanks for using Snagit! In the latest couple versions of Snagit for Mac recording system audio is pretty seamless. No more dependency on Soundflower. We just released Snagit 4 last week, if you want to check it out. https://www.techsmith.com/snagit...

@fosteronomo @nwkwan looks cool Daniel! Let me know how that works for you Nick. Interested to hear your thoughts. That being said, we'll be working on doing full desktop recording since that is by far our most requested feature at this point. Keep up the good work Daniel - you and your team have built a great product.

@vhmth Thanks, Vinay!
Nick Kwanย โ€” Head of Growth, Pakible (YC W15)
@fosteronomo @vhmth Yep I've used Snagit's system audio for quite some time but I literally had to record part of my screen and do a video to record. Was wondering if anyone knew a seamless audio only way to record both system and standard audio.
