Where does Screeny put the recorded video or image file?

I’ve been experimenting with Screeny by Daeo Corp. Software, for recording screencasts on a Mac. It works well, but it took me ages to figure out where the app saves the movie or image files.

Here’s the answer: Screeny creates a “Screeny” directory inside your “Movies” directory, and puts the files there. They’re .mov files.

~/Movies/Screeny

​Here’s an example file name:

Screeny Video 26 Mar 2016, 5.47.45 AM.mov

​Here’s what the directory looks like in Finder:

Where Screeny puts its movie files

Screeny puts the files in that directory as soon as you stop recording. There’s no way to change the default location of the files.

​What about single screenshots? Screeny puts those into a Screeny directory in your “Pictures” directory:

~/Pictures/Screeny​

​Example file name:

I hope this helps you find your screencasts.🙂
