    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!

    Recording all desktop action
    (compiz, movies, and mouse included, etc. If you want to):

    INSTALL
    Application: sudo apt-get install recordmydesktop
    GUI: sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop
    SAVED VIDEOS
    Movies are saved in: /home/yourname/out.ogg
    EDIT VIDEOS
    Application with GUI: sudo apt-get install kino
    SAHRE IT
    Site: http://www.youtube.com

    That's all, so lets make some tutorial videos, and share
    Or... Game video demos, eheh
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop
    will install both the program and GUI, so the first command is redundant, and by using the attached script you can automatically convert your videos to avi format (which is able to be uploaded to youtube... while the ogg cannot), which will then be moved to a folder called ~/screencasts. Hope this helps!!

    Also if you want, you can run the following command in Terminal
    Code:
     gtk-recordMyDesktop && ogg2avi.sh && exit
    (assuming that your ogg2avi.sh is in either your home folder, /usr/bin/ , or anywhere else in your $PATH) which will launch the GUI version of recordmydesktop, followed immediately by my script in the same terminal window (you have to click quit on the recordmydesktop window before it will launch), and then the window will close when the conversion is complete.

    Re: HOW-TO make a Tutorial/Demo VIDEO

    I've just had the same error message. The most annoying bit is that it recorded sound and video fine the first time round. I then tried to record something else without changing any settings and have received the same error since.

    Just add the --no-sound option in the advanced tab if you don't need sound.

    Re: HOW-TO make a Tutorial/Demo VIDEO

    I get this error:

    Code:
    "record mydesktop has exited with status: 768"
    and I would always be able to record sound. Any suggestion? Thanks.

    Because sound issues, I´ve found this:
    http://recordmydesktop.sourceforge.net/faq.php#I_have_no_sound!
    and found these results in google:
    http://www.google.pt/q=recordmydesktop+sound+problem


    WinFF, its not in author page anymore, now it has its own .org website:
    http://winff.org/html_new/


    There are also 2 more frontends for recordMyDesktop available in its project homepage:
    http://recordmydesktop.sourceforge.net/about.php
