Scott, could you please have a look to see whether WP is supposed to support this embed? Or perhaps Jetpack does? Or do we have other omnibus embedding tools we could recommend?

From Screen-o-matic: "Capture any part of your screen, webcam, or both to record as many videos as you want for free. Add music, audio narration, captions, and more. Trim the start and end of your recording. Save to your computer (as MP4, AVI or FLV file), or upload directly to YouTube or Screencast-O-Matic ."

Can the user just save to another format or platform (like YouTube).

I tried to embed the url a bunch of ways and was not successful. There is a plugin (WordPress Video Plugin) that claims to be able to do it, but it is 10 years old.

  • Subject changed from embedding screencast? to embedding screencast-o-matic?
  • Category name set to WordPress - Media
  • Status changed from New to Staged for Production Release
  • Target version set to 2.0.12

I've just added an embed handler for Screencast-o-matic: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/ce86929f34f3b28c5d06240e54510a152a03aee8. This will be ready after next Tuesday's maintenance release.

When the release is deployed, tell the user to put the Screencast-o-matic URL on its own line. URL must begin with https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/. By default, the seekbar controls will be shown and the title will be hidden.

To hide the seekbar controls, you can add controls=0 to the URL. So for the example URL, that would be:

https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c3X2DpVUjbh?controls=0

To show the Screencast-o-matic title, you can add title=1 to the URL. So for the example URL, that would be:

https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c3X2DpVUjbh?title=1

You can also combine the two parameters together like so:

https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c3X2DpVUjbh?controls=0&title=1
