    Screen Recorder

    Hi there,

    I'm looking for a screen recorder that actually works. I've tried RecordMyDesktop and it doesn't work the way I want it. I know this has been asked multiple times but I only started using Linux yesterday so I'm still pretty new to the OS.

    Thanks

    HiAnother suggestion:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
    Code:
    ffmpeg -f x11grab -s wxga -r 25 -i :0.0 -sameq my_screen_output.mpg
    Yet another soft you can find here http://www.webupd8.org/2013/06/simpl...ul-screen.htmlCheers, Bruno

    Do not use -sameq: it does not mean same quality, this option has been removed upstream, and it most definitely does not belong in a command that is capturing from x11grab.

    See HOWTO: Proper Screencasting on Linux.

    Code:
    -sameq  Use same quantizer as source (implies VBR).
    This option is still on ffmpeg man pageCheers,Bruno

    I tried VLC http://www.howtogeek.com/120202/

    But in 13.10 it just crashes.

    VLC works a treat now thanks to this fix that turned up in todays updates to saucy.
