to delete old videos or purchase a monthly payment
plan.

• Saving the file gives you options for editing it using Camtasia™ at some
point in the future. Saved files could be uploaded to Western’s
streaming server instead of screencast.com and the file type can be
converted from the default .swf which is a flash format and sometimes
incompatible, to a more universal file type or multiple file types as
needed. Contact PCSERVICE@westerntc.edu for assistance with file
conversion and posting to the streaming server.
