Thomas was running into problems with Windows Defender blocking Camtasia and OBS from saving files. Leo thought that if he had been running as a limited or standard user, that he simply wouldn't have the permissions for that, but he's running as administrator. Leo says this does seem suspicious. Thomas should set up a shortcut for Camtasia and OBS to run as administrator. When you right click on an application, one of the options that comes up is "run as administrator." It may be that those apps need more permissions.
Mike would like to create videos for training and use them to train others on Adobe. Leo says that Adobe has a good utility called Captivate that is designed for e-learning. The monthly subscription to create e-learning videos is $30.
Since Alan won't be on camera for this, Leo recommends getting the Audio-Technica AT2020USB. The advantage of this microphone is that it's a USB mic, so he can plug it directly into his computer. Alan will need screen recording software next. For this, Leo recommends TechSmith, which offers two different programs. One is the less expensive Snagit, which is more basic.
Howard wants to record what's happening on his computer screen and play it back. What software should he use? Leo says that the best is Camtasia, but that's rather expensive. Applian has a program called Replay that will capture audio and video from any website. VLC VideolanClient can do it as well, if he knows what the video URL is.
Lisa needs some advice on buying an alternative to Camtasia. It's called Articulate and it has options she likes including polling and quizzing. Leo says that eLearning makes Articulate a better option. But it isn't cheap, so he recommends trying before you buy.
