However, compared with Screen Recorder, the limitations of Screencastify cannot be ignored.

1. Video saved in the local folder is of .webm format which cannot be recognized by many common players.

2. Only 10 minutes for users to record and users have to pay $24 every year for a pro version.

3. Watermarks would be forcefully added to your recorded videos.

4. It is not stable enough so it crashes sometimes.

In consideration of Screencastify's limitations, it is clear that which methods will be your best option.

With TuneFab Screen Recorder, you can easily make a Google Slides presentation video with high definition. As WMV and MP4 are both recognized by every player so you do not need to download any other video player to play the stored videos while videos captured by Screencastify videos can only be played on special players. What's more, the price for a complete TuneFab Screen Recorder version for the lifetime is much cheaper than paying $24 every year for a Screencastify pro version in the long run. So, why not give it a try?
