I want to create a free screencast program using Flex. This is how I want it to work.
I want anyone to be able to open up a browser, go to a blog, and run this program within their flash browser plugin.
The program will enable them to take a screencast of their desktop activities and then allow them to upload the screencast to the blog for others to comment on it.
I am not sure how to start this and I am new to Flex and Actionscript.
Does anyone have any ideas on how and where to start this project so others can contribute to it?
Thanks in advance for your ideas and input.
Connect does the screen sharing by forcing the user to install an add-in. I suspect that is the only way to record the desktop. As far as I know Adobe has not published any PAIs for this sort of functionality.
I was going to direct you to CoCoMo http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/afcs/ however, that does not seem to include screen sharing / recording functionality.
I think you're going to have to look at alternative technologies for this. Or somehow license / use Connect.
