One of the most loved features of Outklip just got better. Outklip lets you record a screencast recording with a thumbnail camera. The thumbnail camera gives a personal touch to a screencast video thus making the video more interesting for viewers.
However, the thumbnail camera had a limitation. When you changed browser tabs while screen recording, the thumbnail camera would not be visible on a new tab.
Our new feature improves the thumbnail camera by addressing the limitation. Now the thumbnail camera stays on even as you change browser tabs. This feature went live on May 20th 2021. If you’re using the Outklip Chrome extension after this date, you will be able to use the feature.
How to use the new feature
- When you enable camera on the Outklip Chrome extension, for your screencast recording, you will get a prompt asking if you want the camera to stay on even as you change browser tabs. Click Yes.
2. A dialog appears with a request for permission to Read and change all your data on the websites you visit. Click Allow.
Note: The permission sounds broad in scope, but Outklip uses it only for the purposes of making the thumbnail camera stay on even as you change browser tabs.
3. Here on, the thumbnail camera will always stay on even as you change tabs.
By taking advantage of this feature you can ensure that viewers never lose sight of the narrator of the video.
