Screenr Reviews

Quick, simple and limited

about Screenr and Jing · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

The good stuff: it just works, without any (apparent) download (other than a Java applet).

The not-so-good stuff:

  • screencasts are public
  • Flash is required for viewing. iPhone and iPads can only view the screencast if you publish it using Screencast Business.
  • if you use a SOCKS proxy in Chrome, the Java applet will complain about some invalid SOCKS operation.

Screencasts are public

Note that unless you use the for-pay Screenr Business, screencasts will be public. This might be dangerous if you use Screenr to report issues with software that handles sensitive data such as CRM.


Screenbird is a good alternative. You can publish to youtube (and keep it private) or just keep it private on their website.

Simple and fast screencasting

Screenr is very good solution when you want to record a screencast FAST. And by fast, i mean VERY FAST. You just have to had Java installed, besides that you are good to go. Naturally, it has some downsides, such as no editing and max length of 5 minutes. But screenr is product aimed for fast "i will show you" videos, not for professional presentations.
