Why Do I Have Two Screencast Libraries?

Screencast is in the process of updating and improving our service. In 2023, Screencast plans to provide the option for users to migrate all their content from Screencast Classic to the updated Screencast site, so all of your content will be in one location. After migrating your content, your existing Screencast Classic links will still work and be automatically redirected to the new site.

If you do not see all of your content in your Screencast Library, you may have content located in both Screencast and Screencast Classic Libraries. Click the link in the banner message to quickly switch between the Screencast Libraries to locate your content.
