Humble Daisy’s ProfCast 2.5.0 – a lecture recording and podcast creation solution – has been updated with new functionality and bug fixes.

Among the most significant additions to ProfCast is the ability to export recordings in the .m4v format.

“A lot of users have requested the the ability to share their recordings in the .m4v format.” explained Dave Chmura, president of Humble Daisy. MPEG4 video (.m4v) files are commonly used in online file sharing and social networking sites such as YouTube and Facebook.
