screen capture for demo recordmydesktop


Screen capture for demo purpose in Linux world:

gtk-recordMyDesktop

You can launch GUI and use it.


If you are not interested in sound,  use ( in cli mode):
# recordmydesktop --no-sound

When you want to stop recording using + C

By default, it records in ogv format. You can directly upload this video to youtube.

I faced some issues and it creates log file in home directory namely, gtk-recordMyDesktop-crash.log
Check it out for troubleshooting.



If you wish to cut portion of video, you can make use of ffmpeg.


ffmpeg -i in.ogv -ss 00:01:05.0 -c copy -t 00:00:5.0  out.ogv

-ss -> start time

-t -> duration


This cuts video from 1 hour 5 mins of time duration 5 minutes. 

time format hh:mins:secs
