with explanations. )
Click the image to show the video
1024x850 722x600 512x425
  • Start DemoRecorder,
  • Prepare the start of your scene,
  • Press Record,
  • Do the things that you want to record,
  • Press Break when you are finished.
  • Save the video.
Step 2

Click the image to show the video
800x600 512x384
( this generates all files necessary for web-publishing. )
You can do it with the following commandline:
demorec-to-flv-with-player  easy_web_example  easy_web_example.flv
This does the following things: export the video to FLV and generate the SWF-Player and HTML-code.
Step 3

Click the image to show the video
1024x850 722x600 512x425
Copy/Paste the HTML-code into your website and upload the files to your webserver.
How to preview before uploading:

You have to preview it through a local webserver.

Previewing by loading the html-file directly into the webbrowser with a file:-URL does not work because the Flash-Plugin can playback FLV videos only through http.

The Result
Voilà, your video:
(Please press the play-button in order to play the video. If you do not see the player buttons please scroll down.)

BTW, each DemoRecorder license comes with an extensive set of services and guarantees. Read more below.

Service 1: Free support for 2 full years

For two full full years after purchase of your license you will get competent free support directly from the author of DemoRecorder.

This works as follows:
Whenever you have a question related to DemoRecorder or whenever you need help with DemoRecorder please write an email with your questions to me personally at chris{at}DemoRecorder.com and I will help you and answer your questions by email.
(please replace {at} with @ in the email adress)

(The maximum reaction time depends on the type of license you purchase. If you want fast reaction times please purchase a license of DemoRecorder-Pro. )

Service 2: Free bugfixing service

For two full full years after purchase of your license you will get all bugs fixed which you encounter and which we can reproduce.
And we will work together with you until we get all necessary info for reproducing the bug..

That means that if you supply us with all necessary info for reproducing a problem, you can be sure to get it fixed.

Service 3: Free updates

All new releases of DemoRecorder which are released within 2 years of your purchase are included in your license:

Just download the new version, install it (and reactivate the license if the install procedure has removed the license files, which may happen on some systems.)

Service 4: Instant License Move Service

We believe that it should be as easy as possible to move a license to another computer or to handle hostid-changes due to hardware upgrades.

Therefore, through our license move service these actions may be performed online and instantly as follows:
If you upgrade your hardware or move your license to another computer, just reactivate the license again with the new demorec-hostid. You will instantly get your new license file after confirming that you won't use the old license files anymore.

(The license move service works instantly for a certain, reasonable number of times within a certain timeframe. If these common-sense boundaries are exceeded we will manually review license moves in order to prevent abuse of that service.)

How much Does it Cost?
Individual Licenses ( a la carte )

    The Pro-Edition provides faster response times with support and bugfixing. In addition to the nested desktop mode, it includes a full-screen recording mode.
