    Record your desktop with recordmydesktop ;)

    http://recordmydesktop.sourceforge.net
    a nice screen/desktop video recorder, try it

    note: you can now install it from the repository through ADD/REMOVE

    installation command: sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop

    you can find it in Applications menu --> sound and video --> gtk-recordmydesktop


    Using Recordmydesktop

    in command line console type the command recordmydesktop
    you can stop the recording by pressing ctrl-c
    or in gui-front just click record, and just click the white square on system tray to stop
    the output is in ogg video format however you can convert it to avi by mencoder

    example

    mencoder -idx input.ogg -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -o output.avi
    *note install mencoder if its not installed by doing
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install mencoder
    then you can upload it to youtube or wherever.

    Nice job! It works here with Beryl + NVidia. Actually my video are not that smooth but I guess I'd need a quad core to have smooth Beryl videos..

    Maybe it's just me (i'm new to Linux) but when I record my desktop at full resolution (1280x1024) the recorded video won't open in anything. If I record at 640x480 it will play but the colour seems washed out?

    Beryl enabled or disabled - same results...


    I found out it's a bug with my graphics card driver!

    perhaps try

    Code:
    recordmydesktop --quick-subsampling --zero-compression
    for maximum performance

    works pretty well, although using it without those two switches you posted resulted in a crash when pressing ctrl+c
