    screencasting -- favorite method ?

    what's the favorite method of screen-casting ?

    i'm working with Kazam right now
    i think the "webm" format is a bit new ? and windows folks probably don't have a reader for it ?

    mp4 should be better . i like the .avi container

    I use this: HOWTO: Proper Screencasting on Linux.

    I haven't tried kazam.

    ffcast is worth looking at but you'll have to compile it. Basically the same as above, but has additional tools that allow easier selection of the window(s)/area that you want to record; such as using your mouse to draw a box of the area you want to record or simply clicking the windows that you want recorded. I'm not sure if it supports audio recording however, but you can probably tweak the script to allow it to do so.

    VP8 video (the usual video format used with webm container) will not give you the same quality/file size that you can get using x264 to encode H.264 video.

    I'm not sure, but I will guess "no" unless they use VLC.

    mp4, like webm, is a container format that can contain various video formats and audio formats. avi container format is quite dated and there are few reasons to use it these days.
