Two clever uses for CaptureWiz.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Steve S. suggests using CaptureWiz to capture those darn PDF files that can be edited, but not saved.

Another use is to capture answers to website “security questions”, such as “What high school did you attend?”

Note that those security questions are a major weakness because hackers can often figure out the answers. So we typically answer with a backup password, like this…

What high school did you attend? Answer: 63Z28B4R29

While the answer looks whacky, in practice it works fine and is much more secure.



--------------------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft fixes Windows 10 audio recording.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Upgrading to Windows 10 sometimes replaces the audio driver with one that can’t record audio :( But Darlene D. reported that an automatic update fixed her problem! So, if you had this problem in the past, you might check if it’s fixed now.

1 On the taskbar, right-click the speaker icon.

2 Click Recording Devices.

3 If StereoMix or WhatUHear appear, it’s fixed! Tell CaptureWiz to use that channel under Settings / Options / Audio / Input.



--------------------------------------------------------------------
Our video format is a small victory for privacy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Your recordings are safe from government prying because, according to Officer Perry Steven in the High Tech Crime Unit of the Merseyside police, security policies block them from running CaptureWiz! Also, our proprietary CWM format prevents them from using automated “forensic” tools to snoop through your files. Take that, big government! Of course, if it’s important enough, they’ll find a way.



--------------------------------------------------------------------
Video download tricks.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Savvy customers responded to our last newsletter with even better ways to download videos. Jaime F. suggests this free, super simple way to download video that requires nothing to be installed. All you need to do is click the URL at the top of the web browser window and insert the two letters “ss” in front of the domain name. For example, change “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abc” to “https://www.SSyoutube.com/watch?v=abc”. Your browser will jump to the SaveFrom.net website where you can download the file directly to your drive. How cool is that?

Ellen M. recommends Video DownloadHelper, a web browser extension that adds a Download button to the top of Chrome or Firefox. The button works on hundreds of video sites including YouTube, DailyMotion, Facebook, Periscope, Vimeo, Twitch, Liveleak, Vine, UStream, Fox, Bloomberg, RAI and Metacafe.

Of course, if you can’t download it, you can record it using CaptureWiz!
