Screen capture with LICEcap

For my last JavaFX articles, I wanted to show the animated results directly at this website. At the time being, there’s no guarantee that a visitor can execute an embedded JavaFX application. Because of that, some bloggers tend to embedd youtube videos with their application in action. That too would need some setup (youtube account, making a screen capture video, … ). So I searched for a simple solution to display screen capture footage directly at a website. Despite it’s bad reputation, an animated gif works on every browser I know.

LICEcap is an open sourced and very simple screen capture application that solved all my current needs.

Yap, that’s all for this week. I just wanted to add LICEcap to my tool chain.
