    I saw you had some other issues too. Any luck or update? We're having trouble replicating this. If it happens again, any chance you have Jing or Snagit to include a screenshot? Thanks for taking the time to contact us.

    Same problem: View All Items and Videos are not showing up at all. Playlists, images, and other showing up OK. I do like the organization and the new look.

    Nice layout but what gets on my nerves is the pop up information box when you tick a box for selection. This really must be sorted. Have reverted back to the old look because of this.

    not user friendly and too time consuming-
    1. From screencast- i dont see a way to delete multiple files
    2. From snagit mac- I have to Upload one at a time, then paste the url
    why dont you have an option to multi upload, then give me the urls together?

    I really like it - it makes my workpflow quick and simple and lets me create and manage my files and folders quickly. Multiple file management would be good.

    The layout is fine... but it is missing buttons to share....don't see it, which make me think it is not user friendly

    I've not noticed too much difference on functionality but playback performance for at least my posts has been poor, for the last few weeks.
    I've tried encoding in several formats, but can't get smooth playback.

    We've not changed anything related to performance. I'm not sure why performance could be degraded, but we should learn more about your encode settings. Are you doing MP4? What dimensions and bitrate? Our support team can probably help you the best. http://support.techsmith.com

    Not to be too pick, but it's not the most attractive interface. However, it definitely has features that I really wanted. For example, the ability to easily move videos anywhere without being forced to drag them to relocate is very helpful. Also I like the show me all.

    I just ran into an issue where I selected a video to delete and it showed an error: "Unable to delete content. Please try again or contact Screencast Support".

    Mac OSX 10.6.7 - Chrome 10.0.648.205

    Thanks for the public beta preview!

    Thanks for the feedback. I must admit there may be some around here who have an opinion about all that orange. :) Thanks for telling us about the delete issue and including your OS and browser. We'll look into it!

    Thanks Mike for the reply.

    I have a quick question / feature gripe. Using the Mac version of Camtasia I can choose to export my screencast to screencast.com however there is no drop down to select what folder to upload to. It's signed in to my account and you would think I would be able to choose a folder. I understand this might not be the place to post this, but I figured I'd try. Is this something that they are aware of as an issue or is it going to be fixed in the next version?

    Thanks for your time.

    I'll send this to the Camtasia for Mac team to double check. My understanding is that you should be able to select a folder in the future. I think it just didn't get into version 1.0. Our other products, even little Jing, let you pick a folder before you upload.

    Yea I know Jing works that why and that's why I was confused that my Mac version of Camtasia 1.2 didn't include that feature. Thanks for passing that along.

    Love the new navigation and sorting options. This is a really really nice experience. Conversely, the view you get when looking at images in a playlist, is just nasty, as shown here: http://screencast.com/t/mE7yOAQsx . It also appears that the ability to manage the list of playlists was omitted. Once I've created a playlist, I can't rename it, can't delete it - it's there FOREVER! Hehe, not a huge deal, but definitely looks like an oversight.

    Overall, great work, and personally, I like all that orange - it's uniquely jarring!

    Love your Jing video! Thanks for the honest feedback! Yeah, we probably should have better pointed out that Playlist functionality (or lack thereof) has not been addressed in this beta release. I'd recommend using the "old view" for all your playlist creation, deletion and management. We'll pound on those playlists for next time.

    When I click on All items (Video, or Images, or Other) it shows none, a blank screen on the right.

    I'm using FireFox. Has this happened to anyone else?
    Thanks,

    Hi friends, I still miss a detailed statistics panel that could give detaill of views, downloads etc. by month, by file, by folder.... very customizable. I also would like to have shorter and more usable links system.

    I use screencast mainly for hosting my podcast files, linked in other sites and not for playing directly in screencast.com. Maybe that is my mistake

    I also would like to use my screencast acount o leave this feedback but it seems is not enabled

    I like the new look and feel. Q. I have is that the system sorted several videos in an "other" category. Don't know why. I believe all of my uploaded videos are the same format - flash.

    I have not been using Screencast that much, mostly if I "had to" because of uploading in SnagIt (mac).
    Now it feels quite a lot better - it's so much easier to find files and work with them.

    BUT - I still miss a button to upload a capture to flickr with SnagIt Mac!!!

    absolute first impression--haven't dug in yet--is like the look, like the idea of playlists, but when I click on videos, for example, or a folder name--nothing happens. I thought I'd be able to see what was in there and move it around.

    Okay--I watched the video about how it is supposed to look and work and it looks great. Only problem is that it doesn't work. NONE of my content shows, just the folder list on the left and the whole screen is otherwise blank. I am using Firefox 4 on a PC.

    I like the basic concept, but definitely miss the list view where I could scan through the number of views for all items in a folder. Will these details be accessible without having to hover over each individual item?
