Windows Live Mail Beta screencast

A while back I got an invite to Windows Live Mail Beta; basically, Hotmail 2.0. So I’ve finally got round to doing a short screencast showing off its interface, a couple of new features and me explaining my thoughts on the new service.

First of all, I’d like to apologise for the fact that the Firefox window is cut off and subsequently there’s some of the window that you can’t see. It’s not a major issue, but still, annoying and not worth re-recording for. Next time I’ll resize the window to exactly 720×576 to prevent this problem happening again (it’s an Adobe Premiere Elements thing).

Stay tuned for full size 720×576 XviD version, it will be available for download soon.

XviD 720×576 version now available for download. Download now!

    Also next time if you hide all your Firefox toolbars you’ll have more screen real-estate to work with. 😀

    Next time I will definitely take steps to prevent that happening again. I could have redone it, but I didn’t want to render it again (grrr).

    I use an ancient version of Camtasia Recorder that I got off a magazine coverdisc and record the audio in Audacity (yes, I know, separately from the video). Then I take the video and audio, combine it in Adobe Premiere Elements, render it, then put it through VirtualDub for the XviD version (which you can now download from the link above).
