    Exclamation HOW-TO make a Tutorial/Demo Desktop VIDEO - |RESOLVED|

    Ok, sometimes is really usefful to have a Tutorial or Demo video for a program or game and post it in youtube (for example).
    The right way is really easy, the right and powerfull tools for Linux/Ubuntu are here, all in open-source glory, but took me lots of time to find out what works better, was more complicated since i was used to windows software names, so here goes: (Im trying to get it as simple as it can be, all with GUIs, etc.)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Recording all desktop action
    (Can record compiz-fusion, effects, movies, audio, mouse, etc, etc.)

    1 - RECORDING
    Install application: (Type in terminal) sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop
    Running: go to menu: "Applications" ---> "Sound & Video" ---> "gtk-recordMyDesktop" (You can read more about it, here: LINK )
    Stop Recording: Click in the small grey square icon (next to time and date bar)
    Movies are saved at: /home/yourname/out.ogg

    2 - CONVERTING TO OTHER VIDEO FORMATS
    Convert OGG video to AVI format: WinFF for GTK (ffmpeg Gnome based GUI) OR Check brennydoogles, next posts!

    3 - EDITING THE SAVED VIDEOS
    Install application: (Type in terminal) sudo apt-get install kino
    Running: go to menu: "Applications" ---> "Sound & Video" ---> "Kino"
    [Added in Jan 2010] OR OpenShot - New open source video editor here: http://www.openshotvideo.com/ (I haven´t tried it yet)


    4 - SHARE IT
    Final Video Example: brennydoogles turotial video about "AIM In Virtualbox" here
    My Videos: here

    OTHER IDEAS, FROM POSTS:

    retro89: "I recommend Open Shot Video editor http://www.openshotvideo.com/. It imports and exports many different file types. First you will need to install the dependencies which are on the website then install Open Shot.The files are .deb files which makes installation a breeze. "

    That's all, hope this helps, so lets make some tutorial videos, and share... or... Game video demos!
