I think that I am a enough good chess player to teach chess. So, I want to create a website and post chess videos in it. So I want a software that helps me teach chess like for example see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDfjsMXlcek This video was given by thechesswebsite.com. Note the software that he uses, I asked him about it but he is not replying so I want your help. Thanks in advance.

Just based on ease of use and aesthetic appeal I'd recommend the free ChessBase Reader which allows you to easily draw arrows on the board and highlight squares. To record your videos you can use free screen capture software such as oCam.

  • It's a pleasure. Please post a link to your videos when you're ready to release them! :)

  • To draw a green arrow hold down Alt and drag the mouse from the source to the target square. For red arrows hold down Alt+Shift, for yellow Alt+Shift+Ctrl. The same goes for highlighting squares.
