The guys over at did a cool experiment with Google+ for recording a video podcast:

What we did was extremely simple:

Create a private G+ Hangout with those video podcasting

Use Camtasia, set the recording area to a custom size that fits the Hangout video

Press the record button and start your podcast!

I had to use a microphone that recorded the sound coming out of my laptop speaker, so sound quality wasn’t good. Kevin and I were also using our built-in laptop cameras so our video quality wasn’t great. But when it comes down to it, this was a test run that can be greatly improved upon- we just wanted to test it out, share the idea, and see what you folks think.
