    can really VB capture video by itself?


    Indeed, I don't know how irc works! (I'm going to learn it now)


    and I also tried to create an account in https://forums.virtualbox.org to ask them about the ticket but the registration steps was really troublesome (finally couldn't)
    The ticket makes no sense as the person is asking to record the host from the VM (host is the OS that virtual box is running on)

    The reply refers you to ffmpeg.

    if the guest OS in the VM is linux then ffmpeg is from the command line of the linux VM.

    From within a VM you can take a screenshot however.

    To record the session you will need to use a tool such as ffmpeg,kazam etc etc

    i think that ticket is meaning the OS being "hosted" in the VM but I could be wrong.

    To the OP.

    Are you sure your teacher didnt mean vmware ?

    in vmware you can usevmware record and play or used to be able to.

    If its virtual box then you will need to record within it the same way you would record a desktop in any OS with whatever screen capture software you choose.

    Peace

    Teacher emphasized again on the subject. Without any additional explanation!
    If you have a forum account in virtualbox forum or If you're familiar with VBox developers, is it possible that you contact them on `Vbox capturing`?
