Warning: using Screencast-O-Matic may leave your system vulnerable to hackers.
Many YouTube users are using a “Screencast-O-Matic”, a screen recorder which works in the web browser and on the desktop.
Unlike Ezvid, Screencast-O-Matic is not free.. it costs $15/year for the full version.
But this isn’t the real problem. The real problem is that Screencast-O-Matic relys on Java, which is a plugin for Windows which will allow hackers to easily take control of your computer and steal your personal information:
So. Here is what we recommend.
1. Immediately uninstall Java. Here is how to uninstall.
2. If you like using screencast-o-matic, wait until they release a new version which does not require Java. You might want to sign up for their mailing list.
3. In the meantime, try Ezvid to record your screen instead!
