Screen Recordings: Jing vs. Screencast-o-Matic

For technology reasons, I was without my machine running Snow Leopard, therefore without capabilities to screen record from the new QuickTime. This resulted in a neat experiment of trying out Jing as well as Screencast-o-Matic. I began with Jing, which seemed simple enough. I recorded my Moodle tutorial and proceeded to upload it to my YouTube channel. Jing, unfortunately, saved my file in a .swf format that is not supported by YouTube. QuickTime, likewise, would not read the file. I moved on to Screencast-o-Matic. Once finished with my recording, I was able to login to YouTube and upload. The encoding took a long time. My two minute tutorial took over 30 minutes to encode for YouTube. I miss Snow Leopard and Quicktime!
