Everything ran smoothly except that the sound was a little bit lower than (for example) the intro video of screencast.com itself. Even if a little lower, the audio was perfectly clear. all in all an excellent way to deliver a presentation. So most problems seem to be Safari or Mac related. Or perhaps user-PC related. I read that it should also be possible to download the presentation on your computer. If this is so, many problems could be solved. screencast.com is a repository of online videos. One of the main differences with youtube.com is that you can upload videos longer than 10 minutes.
