Loom is always useful, for example, when commentary videos or commented instructions need to be created and shared with other people. With Loom, you can easily illustrate even complicated facts. The software for Windows is currently available in version 0.50.2.
Video recordings with Loom
Downloading and installing Loom
Registration is required to use Loom. This can be done through your own email address or an existing Google or Slack account. In the basic version, Loom can be used for free, so there is no registration fee.
Share screen videos with Loom
Three different recording modes can be selected through the Loom program interface, where the screen and webcam can be recorded together, only the screen or only the webcam. In shared mode, the webcam image overlays the rest of the recording, but this can also be swapped out for a photo.
While recording, a drawing tool can be used to highlight important elements and areas on the screen. Mouse clicks can also be visually highlighted. The videos are uploaded directly to Loom’s cloud server and can be shared with other users from there by passing the corresponding link, for example by email, Facebook or Twitter. If desired, access can be password protected or limited to certain email addresses.
Free version of Loom with restrictions
After the first installation, Loom can be fully tested for 14 days. After the test phase, the software can only be used to a limited extent. For example, HD resolution recordings, the drawing tool, or simultaneous desktop and webcam recording are reserved for paying customers. There is a detailed overview on the Loom website.
In addition to the Windows version offered here, Loom is also available for Mac OS. Another version for iOS allows screen recordings on iPhone and iPad. There is also an extension for Google Chrome that makes it easy to save directly in the browser. There is similar software with Jumpshare, which can also be used as classic cloud storage for file exchange.
