BandiCam Upload Images   Link

I was thinking of getting BandiCam per your recommendation.  Do you get a referral by mentioning you?

Yep. I'm an affiliate on their site. You can click on this link and I'll get a small commission. Thanks. I appreciate you asking: Bandicam

It really is good software. I wouldn't recommend anything I don't personally use and endorse. I switched from Hypercam which was my recording software since 2004 because Bandicam is easy to use, records direct to MP4 (which saves a lot of space over AVI files) and has a nice feature set.

I became an affiliate AFTER I personally switched to their product. I usually do that when I find a piece of software I like and want to recommend. I tried signing up with GoDaddy as an affiliate because I use them for web hosting, but for some reason their affiliate network declined my application. So... no referrals for them. LOL

I learned how to embed a video in a spreadsheet.  Do you recommend what type of video capture you use on your tutorials?   I want to make a spreadsheet that has a video tab that intructs the user how to measure and fill out the spreadsheet acordingly.... any advice, recomendations?

I used Hypercam for many years, from my start in 2004 until just this month. 16 years, not a bad run. It's a good piece of software too. I just decided to switch it up and try something new. I'm using Bandicam now. I like it. Nice and simple. Good set of features. Inexpensive. I record my videos in short segments then I use Bandicut to join them together (the software's main feature is to cut apart large videos, but you can also use it to put lots of small videos together).

Does it format it in Mp4?  When it records video, is there certain software it won't record, any restrictions?

Great idea kevin, I'll take a further look at the code when I'm not on my mobile.

A couple of quick pieces of feedback, images are always great to show off the apps, if you have multiple screens you can also use a gif (

Another idea since you're happy to share the code is to put it up on GitHub (
Do you use any source control / version control systems? It's a great habit to get into.
Plus you can add up releases and keep track of versions etc, also others can provide feedback, raise feature requests or bugs and even help add them to the app.

Hi Richard. It looks like your making a great come back. Have you ever thought about just charging a monthly subscription for the website. Have everyone pay a subscription and have access to all videos. I thinking as long as you keep new videos added it would work. That would give you a steady income every month. Just a thought. Thanks.

Hi Ray. I do have two different subscription models available. I've got MYOLP for people who want "pay one price per year" access, and then another called the Learning Connection where you get a new lesson every week (or your specified interval) at a 50% discount.

Hello Rick
I have to say that the sound quality is the best it has ever been. Play some of your earlier stuff and you will see what I mean.
Being visually impaired the bigger screen is not so good for me, but I just magnify the screen using the Windows magnifier (Windows key plus + skey). Read More...

Glad you approve! And I know all about being visually impaired now. I'm blind in one eye and need super-strong glasses for the "good" eye. But... I love what I do and I'm gonna keep doin it. :)

Hey folks. How important is it that you be able to make changes to your account info online? For example, changing your email address, names, passwords, etc. I get VERY few requests for this now as it is, so I just do it manually. I haven't taken the time to built it into the web site. However, if enough of you think it's important, I will. Let me know by posting a comment here. Thanks. Read More...

Right now, you can subscribe to receive post notifications for each individual forum on the forum page. When someone posts something, you'll get a daily email sent to you. You'll also get an email notification for any post you're engaged with (commented on). I'm going to set up a mailing list so you can get notified if ANY forum is updated. Let me know if you're interested by commenting here. The more people speak up, the higher it goes on my priority list, and the faster it gets done.

Richard Rost

No, Fred. You can watch any of the courses you have purchased an unlimited number of times. There is no limit for you. The only limitation I put on the lessons is that they're single-user only. You're not supposed to share them.
